Brandt Snedeker future #1 in the WGR?

51 posts in this topic

I'm throwing it out there I think Brandt Snedecker is going to be #1 in the world if he can maintain this ridiculous stretch he's on. I predict him to win a major this year and he is probably 1 of the top 2 putter on tour. Even if Tiger is back he does really play a full schedule making it easier to pass him. He is definitely the #1 player right now.

I don't doubt he is one of the best in the world and may possibly reach number 1 but before I put him there I'd to see win this year first.

He is on one hell of a stretch right now, and it is certainly possible. However, it will be hard to maintain this kind of run.

Where is Brocks? He would be perfect for this type of thread / discussion. 1.) Breaking TW down on where he stands to make it to #1 2.) Giving us run downs on the strength of tournaments He would be able to tell you exactly what Sneds would have to do to make it to #1. Come on Brocks! Come back to TST. I miss your insight and analysis.

Like above idk the numbers on how to get to number one and I also know that it will be hard to maintain this pace. But why not Snedecker? The only other person in the top 10 that plays as consistent as Snedecker is Louie. And like I stated above I bet he wins a major this year. He loves Augusta, Merion should suit his game this year, and he played very well at last years Open minus 1 round. Rory and Tiger both play shortened schedules which really puts a lot of pressure on every start.

I really like Sned's game.  He doesn't spend a bunch of time over the ball, and he never looks rattled, even when he hits a poor shot.  Just seems to be in control.

See how he handles the majors then make a call.

We saw him twice not stack up to Tiger and Phil in a non major

Not stack up to tiger or Phil? In all fairness Phil shot a 60 on Thursday, and he wasn't really in contention on the weekend. So it's not as if they were tied going into Sunday and he bombed. Oh and where was Phil this weekend? Seems that Phil didn't stack up to Brandt. I think he will get there, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald both made it there without a major.

According to a talking head on TGC, he's 4th in the world behind Woods as of yesterday.

He doesn't miss cuts cough tiger/rory cough and has been in the top 10 for 8 of his last 9 iirc.

If he keeps this up, he's on track for #1.

Yeah. If he keeps finishing first or second in tournaments he'll eventually be #1 in the world.

Also I do believe he took down 3 of the top 5 players on Sunday at East Lake, with 10 million dollar prize on the line I'm sure that had a major feel to it.

Of course he will become the number 1 if he finishes in the top 2 in every tournament he plays. But that won't happen (remember Mahan or Wilson last year - they looked unbeatable too for a month). It would really surprise me if he passes Woods or McIlroy. But I think he can be a solid top 5 player, if he can maintain his form.

And the tournaments he played this year so far didn't have really strong fields (OWGR-Points: 40, 50 and 52).

He has missed more than 25% of the cuts in events he has entered in his career.  Tiger has missed less than 6%

cough facts cough

Let's not get carried away with ourselves.  A month of golf is not a season.  Cf. Hunter Mahan last year.

I think you're confusing which week Phil shot 60. He shot it last week... when he won.

Yeah. I'm not sure what the point of this thread is. If ANY player keeps finishing in the top 5 he'll be #1 in the world eventually (unless someone else does even better).

Same as the Tiger vs. Rory threads or the who's the greatest of all time threads ... it's fun to speculate and cheerlead.

We're fans.

My comment was geared towards his saying tiger and Phil beat him the last two weeks [quote name="Kieran123" url="/t/64714/brandt-snedeker-future-1-in-the-wgr#post_808193"]See how he handles the majors then make a call. We saw him twice not stack up to Tiger and Phil in a non major [/quote] I know any player can consistently be in the top 5 and get there. This thread was started because I think he will be number 1. It's not as if he's been crappy up until the last 3 weeks. He is also a guy that doesn't tinker. He finds what works and goes with. We still don't know what Rory is going to bring this year, nor Tiger for that matter. I am not saying he is the greatest ever nor am I saying he is a superior player to Tiger or Rory. He simply plays more and consistently makes cuts and finishes well.

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
