You might be thinking of Mac O'Grady, but the truth is… he wasn't nearly as talent as you said, or else he would've won a bunch on the PGA Tour.
The average PGA Tour player has 2-4 swing thoughts any given week when they're playing. I think the average in a recent Golf Digest or Golf Magazine poll was like 3.2 or something.
Yeah, but NOBODY ever says that the back 9 is set up for drama. That's why they say "redesign 11, 12, 13 and 15 and you've got a great tournament course".
If it was, there's be several of examples of how exciting things happen there.
Rory never choked there.
Nicklaus would've made a run there or something.
Or someone would've hit multiple balls in the water on 12.
As soon as they putt out on 9, the tournament is over.
