Speaking of which, here is a look at Tommy Fleetwood’s PGA Tour trophy case:                                  

He's as over rated as many other tour players that win a couple of tournaments. They make the news cycle for a couple of years. Only a few players live up to the media billing.  One of the j

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 for

Has he won yet?

No and he probably won’t. 

Still a bizarre choice as someone to single out in their own thread as being overrated with there being many other more deserving names to mention in that category. 

I would wager on him winning a major long before Rickie.

Tommy has no chance. And money means nothing really as far as ‘rating’ goes. Charles Howell has won a boatload of money but nobody talks about him much. Come on...it’s sports. Second place or less isn’t the goal.

One thing I know for sure...that shirt he’s wearing is overrated. He needs to burn that thing.

It ranks up there with the ‘99 US Ryder Cup shirts.

Tommy guarantees his overrated status will continue.

How's that?  He just finished 2nd in another major.

Seems to me his stock went up this week.

Most people I know and what hear from pro's when discussing him on TV rate him as an excellent player who will likely win a major at some point in the future. Coming 2nd again hardly diminshes that view.

It's usually Americans who call non American players over rated - ironically because they tend to over rate American PGA Tour players.

Still hasn’t won. More likely these are his hot three or four years and he’ll fade away soon.

Most players only get so many chances.

The European Tour is a weaker tour so his results there don’t mean what you might think they do.

Fowler has his fair share of runners-up. Yet many say Fowler is the most overrated of all. Runners-up get you nothing but some good WGR points.

I think Tommy’s a solid player. I think people prop him up a bit too much for a player who hasn’t won anything yet, but he has lots of time to change that. But it won’t be easy with the field getting stronger.

Nike had Day and Finau wearing them too.

You talked bad about a golfer I like now i’m going to hurl personal insults at you because my feelings are hurt!!!! 

No, but seriously. Even with today’s finish removed I don’t think he was ever “overrated.” But definitely “overhyped.” His WGR was fair, but too many people would talk non stop about his ballstriking and ability to work the ball but he’s a professional.. I’d hope those things are good...

Lets be honest here , Links golf is the only true test of golf in the game . Its why the winner of The Open is called the Champion golfer of the year . There are very few who rise to the challenge of links preferring the easier target golf found in the US where we find many over rated players  who cant cut it on a real golf course . FFS  you must rate the guy very highly if you think he is over rated .

    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
    • Thank you; in retrospect, although it now seems obvious, I (obviously) had no idea that the range needed mowing and other care. [Now what about the choice of Sunday?]
