Not really, no.

Please stay more current. The post you quoted is from nearly three months ago, and the context of that comment is still Tommy Fleetwood, while your question is not.

Most times when the media says a player is overrated, the issue was with the media rating them too high to begin with. Then they start the stories about the athlete failing to meet their unrealistic expectations.

This topic wasn’t started by the media.

True, but to be over or under rated somebody has to set the bar. Its usually member of the media. Certainly I have never heard Fleetwood say how great is or is going to be.

Pre-heating an oven to 350 degrees is over-rated.  So is Kraft macaroni and cheese.  "Over-rated" is a synonym for "known".

In der bag:
Cleveland Hi-Bore driver, Maltby 5 wood, Maltby hybrid, Maltby irons and wedges (23 to 50) Vokey 59/07, Cleveland Niblick (LH-42), and a Maltby mallet putter.                                                                                                                                                 "When the going gets tough...it's tough to get going."

Congrats to Tommy - for finishing top 20 in the Tiger Invitational. Which is also dead last, only 23 shots behind Viktor; but it is good for $100,000 and 2.09 OWGR points.
This is an event that can keep someone Tommy up in the rankings.

Players play, tough players win!

I agree that the OWGR shouldn’t award points for finishing last. They may want to rework distribution in limited field events.

Totally agree. 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

Who says he is overrated? Never really heard that. 

Well, the OP is from 2019, so…

Zero wins on the PGA Tour speaks to being "overrated," though. And for awhile, he was on "favorites" lists to win a major due to a few back-door finishes.
