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 .

    • Summer in the Bay Area is really foggy, especially teeing off before 6am. Yesterday was particularly thick, almost no visibility beyond 100 yards, example below: I got to the 11th tee a bit down on confidence after scrambling for bogey on the 10th; a pulled drive that got knocked down way short by tree limbs, then a chunky 5-iron approach #1, followed by a slightly less chunky SW approach #2, and then up and down. The 11th is a tricky 200 yard par-3, made worse by the fog. I aimed where I thought the green was, and flushed a 5-iron. I knew it was a pure strike, but the ball disappeared into the fog so I didn't get much sense of the curvature of the ball flight. It ended up being a great shot, about 2.5 paces past the hole, I'd guess 7-9 feet (historical shots shown below, to illustrate how much I suck at this particular hole). I missed the birdie putt, but this is a hole where par gains strokes.
    • Howdy y'all. I've taken a long break from golf, and things have really changed. I actually found this site while looking around to see if Snake Eyes clubs from old Golfsmith were still a thing, and sure enough, some of you yahoos are still playing them. Well, me too, but that's probably going to change pretty soon, but you guys seem pretty cool. If you've ever wanted to wake someone up from a coma to tell them what has happened in the world of golf for the last 10 years, I'm your guy. I'm actually really sad about what has happened to golfsmith, but it's pretty cool to see these new driver that you can just change the loft and the shaft with a little wrench.  I'm looking forward to getting to know some folks here, getting some advice on clubs, advice on kids golfing, and insight on kids clubs.    WITB: Nike Sasquatch driver, lucky 13 Titleist 970F strong 4 Snake Eyes irons, not sure which model by name, but they are oversized cavity back through the 6, and then they transition to the rescue style hybrid club Snake Eyes 51° gap wedge (I love this club) Rusty 588 sand wedge Shiny wilson 8802 putter  
    • I got my rejection for the masters and the ANWA late last week. Maybe next year. 
    • It's out there. I've seen it.
    • Another example is giving unsolicited advice. Could be as simple as, "it plays long." Supposed to be a two stroke penalty.
