I've never really seen Sergio hit the ball that bad. Sergio is a good ballstriker but I don't pick out "the best" on Tour type of stuff.

If only he could putt though, he's putting is really horrendous. He's my favorite player, but it kills me to know he never makes a clutch five footer.

I agree.

Regardless of his mental lapses that cause him to struggle with the putter at some of the most inopportune times, he is certainly one of the best ball strikers in the world.

I think all the haters discard his solid game because of his personality. Even I will say..his poor attitude with whining excuses is as costly to his winning total as his mental game on the greens sometimes..

But he's a good guy, I met him at Muirfield Village and he is really friendly and funny. He's had a few bad breaks, and has even had a couple majors stolen away from him by other players that just got red hot on the back nine on Sunday. But its difficult for anyone to honestly say he's not one of the best ball strikers...

when i met geoff ogilvy at a charity tournament he said that sergio is a complete jerkoff and not a nice guy.

really!!!

i heard that his breakup with nicklaus's daughter was taking a toll on him and he hasnt performed the same since .. Putting was pathetic though

You dont think Sergio is a good ballstriker?

Not any more than a slightly better than average PGA Tour pro.

He got the reputation because he had a good GIR year once and it's stuck ever since. Additionally, since he has so much lag, he hits his 4I 240 on occasion and people think that is good ball-striking too. He's over-rated as a driver of the golf ball, too. But bear in mind he's over-rated partly because he's rated so highly. He might still be an 8 out of 10 as a driver, but people seem to think he's a 9.8 or something. Congratulations to Ryan Moore.

I like Ryan Moores hell who cares attitude. Glad to see him pull one off, and hope he wins many more.

Sergio is way overrated. What has he really done other than the WCG last year. Mined you I,m a Sergio fan but he is way overdue to living up to his potential.

Re: his clothing...

Another intersting aspect of Moore's look is that it's logo-less. While he does have a glove and ball deal with Callaway, he is not currently endorsing clubs or other products that might require him to have patches or symbols on his hat, shirts or golf bag. Everything Moore is wearing these days—he says—has been paid for by him. Moore says he likes the logo-less look, but if he continues to play well, don't be surprised if a company or two don't try to buy their way into his graces.

That's great for Ryan Moore. Maybe a sign of good things to come.

As for Sergio, I'm extremely happy he didn't win. He's dangerously close to my MHPG (Most Hated Pro Golfer) award.

Still, Sergio was first in scoring average last year with rather average putting stats, so he must be a very good "scoring" ball-striker?

Also Sergio (or maybe it was Paddy) said a while back that while Paddy is well-suited for short game, Sergio is naturally well-suited at long game, aka ballstriking.

This and that he isnt commecialised from head to toe - yet...

I'm really glad for Ryan Moore and appreciate his beating to his own drum. I will say that after his first PGA tour win it wouldn't surprise me at all if some endorsement deals were soon to follow

Exactly right. Garcia won the Vardon trophy for the best scoring average on the PGA Tour last year. Sergio is a great ballstriker and he's obviously doing something right to have won 7 times and the The Players (under 30). He just needs to stay positive and hold his confidence on the greens and he will keep getting his chances.

People also forget he was but 19 years old when he dueled with Tiger and came in 2nd in the PGA. He's just so talented and been on Tour for years, seems like hes been out there for ages. I think Ryan Moore's win will definitely get him a view logos on the threads...He's on the PING staff correct?

I heard on the Golfchannel to that the only thing he is paid for is for playing Callaways ball. He uses Adam driver/fairway woods and older Ping S59 irons, so not really a lot that Ping would pay him for.

I will say that after his first PGA tour win it wouldn't surprise me at all if some endorsement deals were soon to follow

Its not that he didnt had offers - as i read in an interview, it was his own choice to go without endorsements. You can read the interview here:

http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/article/127460 . Personally i think thats a good attitude, it shifts the focus onto winning instead of trying to milk the cow as long and hard as possible.

I think this whole FedEx cup thing is very lame, but I have a q.
According to the FedEx cup web site, the top 30 go into the final event which is the tour championship, at which point the points are re set. I assume this means that all 30 players start the tournament tied at zero. Then it would seem that whoever wins the tournament, wins the FedEx cup. But the promo material on the web site suggests that some players have a better chance of winning than others (I assume based on past performance through the playoffs).
But if all the points are reset then does not each of the 30 players have an equal chance of winning the cup i.e. whoever wins the tour champinoship wins the cup. I'm confused.

Glad to see Ryan Moore win, too. I believe he's got the game and now that he's not dealing with a nagging wrist injury he could make a huge push in the playoffs.

As for Sergio and his ballstriking:
Sergio ranks 97th in GIR (64.98%), 80th in Total Driving, and T127 in Putts/GIR.

Basically, at least this year, he is a VASTLY overrated "ball-striker" and a pathetic putter.

And yes, I'm NOT a Garcia fan.

    • After the All Star stuff tonight there was an hour long documentary (or Masterson application video, probably) on the amount of damage done to Connor McDavids knee in the final game of last season.  I'm not sure how you'd watch it in the States since it isn't on YouTube yet, but wow, just wow.    The Oilers picked up the rumored four million dollar tab for his rehab, and even still it's hard to believe he skated on opening day, let alone the preseason.   I already had a lot of respect for the guy, but after watching this it's shot through the roof now.
    • Day 16, January 24 2020.  Putting over the aluminum yardstick this evening after work.  Longest streak:  7 in a row, all 36" (at speed to go at least twice that far).
    • Got my first today! It was a pretty easy hole to birdie, but good to start it off right. 
    • I understand that.  But, if I’m striking the ball well one day, I tend to be striking the ball well for a time.  I’ll always take good ball striking over dumb luck, whether good or bad...
    • My golf season is starting in just under three weeks! What we’ll do is practice for a few weeks before our first match on March 2. Anytime we play, I’ll post about it here and on “What’d You Shoot Today?”. Also, if I have any crazy stories from practice, I’ll post those here as well. We do a lot of fun things at practice, from going out and playing a few holes to competitions on the practice green. Our favorite wager: pushups. I’ve got a few crazy stories from last year, so I can put those here too if you want! Definitely looking forward to the season. Just some info from last season: •My scoring average last season was something in the neighborhood of 48.5, with a low score of 45. Hoping to bring that average down to 45 this season. •We made it to regionals as a team last year as one of the top three teams in our conference. At regionals, we played okay, but came up well short, placing ninth out of 12. Top two teams go to state level, and top twelve individuals go to states as well, which leads me to my third point: •We had two of our team members (neither of which were me) go to states. And the final point: •I made a 10 on my last hole of the season. The last hole of regionals, with my family and just about the whole team watching. If you want to know the hole, look up Keith Hills Golf Club, Orange Course #9. Drive to the center of the fairway, then knocked one in the hazard. Dropped, then into the bunker. Took four to get out and onto the green, and then I two-putted. So, there you go. Looking forward to posting my performance this season!
