Thought about this reading the Spieth thread. Open Championship returns to Royal St Georges next year, McIlroy has won there. Or is the answer none of the above, Koepka is unstoppable, lol.

The obvious answer is McIlroy - he's had a great year and may win the FedExCup. The only thing that gives me slight pause is that Spieth has won the Masters and played well there in losing, and that's the next one coming up.

I'd go with Jordan, at Augusta, and Rory everywhere else.  Augusta seems to favor certain players in a way that the other majors do not.

Hands down Rory.  Spieth hasn't exactly been playing brilliantly of late.  Yes, Rory has struggled in the majors but that seems to be more a mental thing.  He may just have played a brilliant round in the Fedex Cup to beat everybody and actually come into contention for multiple majors next year.

Rory. Unless Spieth does an overhaul. But it’s a big hitters game more than ever now. Spieth is gonna have to step up to start competing again.

McIlroy won at Liverpool, not St.George’s.

I will actually go with Spieth as I think he recovers next year and wins the Masters where I think he’s comfortable. Just my prediction. McIlroy will have a good shot at PGA though where he won the Match Play a few years back (Harding Park).

Rory has played at a high level (with the exception of the Open) this season and appears to have more of a killer instinct than Jordan.  I would like to see Spieth get on track for another Major but he just seems hesitant and unsure of himself to me.

Spieth is coming up donut. Wow.

Why in the world would that surprise you?   In the last 2 seasons, he hasn’t won anything and only has 9 top 10’s.

There are 20 guys that, if I had to pick, I’d pick to win a Major before him right now!

Definitely Rory, he is arguably the best golfer in the world right now, he is miles ahead of Jordan who seems to really be struggling the last while.

I think they both will before it’s all said and done but no question that Rory is the one who looks better right now. Spieth plays the Masters well tho so can’t count him out there which ironically is the one Rory needs to complete the slam.

Things can change quickly. Out of the 20 guys voting, I thought there would be one contrarian.

How did Jordan do so well in the first place?  The answer here is Rory McIIroy.  I said a while back that he hadn't been playing to his potential.  He's doing now what I thought he should be doing all along.  If he keeps his putting skills up, the 3 players to beat will be Rory, Brooks and Xander.  These players will be the new "Big 3."

If that was an option you contemplated, you should have included it as an option in the poll. And the correct verbiage is "neither" of the above, since there were only two other options. Neener, neener!

Why? I'm actually a Spieth fan, but I recognize reality. Spieth just looks lost to me! He plays good one day, bad the next. And he's lost one of the hallmarks of his game when he was on top, his putting. Remember how phenomenal he was on long putts? He made bombs! Now it seems he doesn't do that anymore, and he also now misses the 4-5-6 footers, on which most of the top pros are nails!

You couldn't pick a better donut than that for illustration???  I hate sprinkles especially rainbow sprinkles.

And now back to the topic...

I have to agree with @Piz  as Spieth always seem to do well at the Masters, which is the next major coming up.  But everywhere else, I would take Rory in a heartbeat.  I always liked Rory.  He seems to have lost a little bit of edge for a while there, but I think he is back on the solid ground.
