Seems like we've been waiting on a 'young gun' to seriously challenge the top players for a very, very long time.

I think you mean 2 big wins. Having the record for most birdies in a round at the masters doesn't hurt either.

Fair point indeed, along with two in one year on the tour.

It doesn't hurt, agreed. But McIlroy TIED with Kim for 20th place at that Masters. In the other majors this year, (U.S. Open) Kim was T16 McIlroy T10, British Open, Kim was cut while McIlroy T47, (PGA) Kim was T51 and McIlroy was T3.

In 2008, Kim had 8 top 10 finishes and this year only one (1) ... so how is he trending? To be fair, there is a difference between top 20 finishes and winning so at this point what McIlroy can do in the clutch while contending is a question mark. But time is on his side as McIlroy is 4 years YOUNGER than Kim (minus a month).

Out of the guys listed, it's tough to go against Rory McIlroy. His game and demeanor seem to be well suited towards majors. That being said, I could see AK and Danny Lee winning multiple majors as well.

On a side note, keep an eye out for Rickie Fowler. I've been following him for a couple years because he went to Oklahoma State to play his college golf. He has stardom written all over him, and he also has a great demeanor for winning majors. He also has a very solid short game which is always crucial. He tied for 7th last week in his first PGA Tour event as a pro, and he is tied for the lead in this week's event. I can't wait to see how he does in the next couple years.

I'm going to skip the poll choices and go with Rickie Fowler. I saw him play at the 2008 US Open - look out, people!

I saw him play there too. We followed him for a few holes after he bombed a drive on the par 5 4th hole (517 yards). He hit a iron into the green there like he was playing a long par 4. I didn't see anyone going after that green with an iron in the 4-5 groups we watched on that hole. Can't speak to his short game as we were in the wrong spot on the holes we followed him on.

Then why is it, when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccine, he sounds like such a dummy?  Isn’t Bryson DeChambeau supposed to be smart? That’s his schtick, isn’t it? He studied physics at SMU. His nickname is the “Mad Scientist.”  He can talk endlessly about training his brain to find the proper balance between the “parasympathetic and sympathetic states.” Turns out that’s bunk. DeChambeau is a dummy. Indeed, he is the worst kind of dummy, the kind that likes to pretend he is smart. You know the type, don’t you?
    • I don't know if it can be repaired and if it's even worth repairing. That said, the metal in the dented area has been severely stretched so it will need to be shrunk to get it back. I think you're on the right track with heat and cold but I see a couple of potential issues. First, I'm not certain a heat gun will heat a small enough area and, second, it actually needs to "bubble" out a bit in the opposite direction of the dent - if that makes sense. I think you can get it to come back some but I don't think it'll "pop" back with the rounded shape it should have. Good luck and please let us know how it goes.
    • Hi Everyone, I haven't responded in a while because I started taking lessons and I wanted to see how they pan out.  I've improved greatly, though I've only been using my pitching wedge and 7 iron so far.  I've used both my blades with the stiff shafts and my "game improvement" irons with regular shafts. and the flight trajectory and distance is the same.   I just thought I'd give an update since I haven't replied in a little while.  Thanks.
