Rory seems to be the most unaffected and personable of superstars. A bright and thoughtful fellow.  Hard to not get behind him. Terribly exciting when firing on all cylinders.

A very popular victory indeed.

Agreed.  At the BMW last year I noticed how he looked around alot, made eye contact and seemed to enjoy the atmosphere.  Most of the players were in their cocoon.

Where did you get the time machine?  Can you tell us some results so we can get bets down? Signed, Biff Tannen

In my book, Rory's A game beats everybody else's A game.

Hard to say being how good players are these days. Rory’s A game in ball striking is certainly one of if not the best, but his putting isn’t. Rory needs to bring his A game more often or improve to where he can win with his B game.

He was top 20 in all categories in putting this year. I think we assume he is not good because the announcers state it without looking at the stats.

Rory has been a pretty good putter over the years. He reads and putts quickly using what I assume is the Dave Stockton method of no practice swings (not sure if he did that this year as I didn't pay attention). I use this too. Read the putt and wait your turn. When it's time, go line up and putt.

Yes. And that’s not ‘one of the best’ and certainly not ‘better than anyone.’ And this was a good year thus the top 20 in putting stats certainly aided this.

By no means am I saying that he isn't good, cause he's great. He's just not that great. I think Rory will be the next Lee Westwood, albeit with a prettier swing. I know a lot of you think/wish/hope he'll be the second coming, but I'm not buying that product. He hasn't shown me that fire you need to be a multiple major winner. I say he finishes his career with 2, maybe 3 majors and 10-15 tournament wins. I reckon he'll be a hall of famer, but never classed with the likes of tiger, jack, palmer, player, etc. thoughts...?

Hard to say, he’s still pretty young and strong.

To be honest, the field is a lot deeper than when Tiger, Jack and Palmer were greats, and it’s going to be difficult for anyone to be like them nowadays.

So, you might be right about the wins, but not for the right reasons.

Calling it now...Koepka wins all four majors next year. 

Surprised. Koepka won a major and WGC and finished top-5 in all the majors.

Rory won zero majors. Hell, he didn’t even contend in a major.

Both had three wins. Rory was more consistent. And some (most?) of the PGA Tour players don’t like Brooks.

Major wins + performance > Consistency 

That’s just my opinion.

That’s not all that’s figured into POY though.

Clearly your opinion doesn't match that of the PGA Tour members who voted.

Rory won the FedExCup, too, which I'm sure they value.

    • Iacas doesn't need to. The polling has been done by others and the general feeling is overwhelmingly clear. These titles have to go. This is an issue that has been addressed for at least a couple of decades and it is only now that things are actually being changed, rather than merely talked about. You don't get to say that something isn't objectively offensive because it's an issue you don't care about. People are going to decent lengths to prove to you that it isn't a matter of opinion. The fact that YOU don't care is irrelevant. There are a few in this thread who say stuff like "people are too easily offended" or "people are too thin-skinned". No, people care about  demonstrably negative and demeaning names and stereotypes and are supporting efforts to wipe them out. Why does that bother you?
    • Exactly. Thanks for clarifying that point. 👍 I suppose I left that point out given the context of the conversation, but again, thanks for the catch. 
    • ‘Indian’ is not offensive to someone from India and it should not be. But it should only apply to people from India.
    • There's not a lot of "good live action" on M-W. And most people are just taking photos of the golf course itself.
