Overrated. And son-I have not cared about the Ryder Cup since the Ryder Cup started. It is an exhibition.-The golf there does not matter. And Francesco carried Tommy Hairstyle.

 

Sorry your professional career didn't work out as well as you would have liked, Phil.

But you can feel better about yourself by bagging the current players who actually have achieved something. Funny that. Projection much?

In two years you can write things like; "Viktor Hovland,  I mean, what has this guy actually ever done?" if he doesn't win a major or three.

I don't really see the reason for such negativity. A lot of people get close but never have a chance to actually smoke the cigar.

I don’t see the reason for you to be rude and sanctimonious. Phil has an opinion and has played on the PGA Tour and frankly know a ton more about pro golf than you. What have you done?

Didn't get the irony?

Your point  is exactly my point. I want to know why he feels the need to be critical of players just because they haven't achieved to the expectation of some people on a forum.

He should know more than anyone how hard it is. The fact that he is a great advocate for the game means he should be above it. I'll bet you didn't write a post criticising him for calling Fleetwood "Tommy Haircut", or saying they've done "nothing".

Phil has no doubt seen and heard hundreds of players picked as the “next” great player while he was playing and since. He’s seen them come and go. The really great ones meet expectations and actually win majors. There is no irony there. Not sure you understand what irony means. That is defined as experience.

For being a club pro and instructor the dozens of PGA Tour events I played in went pretty darn well considering I really had no business playing in em.-No regrets here at all. My career has been awesome.

No.-Not at all. I feel he is over-rated. Look at how many people picked him to win a major this year.

Ummmmmmmm Tommy Fleetwood turned pro in 2010 dude.-Do not put words in my mouth. Viktor is beating Tommy at the US Open right now.

He is overrated IMO-That is the reason.

What irony?-There is none here.

He is overrrated-That is what the title says and that is my opinion.

Could not be much clearer about it.

And I never called him Haircut.

My bad -  you called him Tommy Hairstyle.

I posted your major record and of course it's better than (presumably) every other member of this forum. But would people who know nothing about the game rate it?

My point is - how would you like to be regarded as having been a failure when everything else you have done in and for the game has been positive?

I seriously don't think that a few bloggers, Youtubers and forum members ever gave Fleetwood major traction as a potential Best Player Without A major even in another decade of great play on the European Tour, a couple of Ryder Cups and a few good final rounds in Majors.

Much as he makes me want to vomit every time I see him, I would rate Kuchar and a dozen others above Fleetwod and I think that would be a common way of thinking. :-)

Well that was certainly enlightening. :-) Probably should've done it earlier.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
