Adam Scott enters the week at #1 in the world

http://www.pgatour.com/tour-insider/2014/05/21/adam-scott-world-no-1-crowne-plaza.html

Quote:

Is Adam Scott the best player in the world?

A better way to put it is to ask who has been better during the last two years? Besides, someone has to be No. 1.

Sure, Tiger Woods had more wins last year with five (albeit none in a major). Jimmy Walker leads the FedExCup standings with three wins since October (again, none in a major). But when it comes to getting to No. 1, playing big in big tournaments is what gets rewarded.

Scott certainly did that on his way to replacing Tiger Woods atop the Official World Golf Rankings earlier this week -- even if he did it while sitting on the couch.

The Aussie won last year’s Masters, was third at The Open Championship and fifth at the PGA Championship. He also closed out 2013 with a pair of wins Down Under -- weaker fields, but with the added pressure of wanting to play well in a rare appearance in his home country.

Yes, Scott is 0-for-2014 in the wins department but hasn’t been without opportunity, most notably at Bay Hill and Augusta National, where opportunities slipped away on the weekend.

In seven starts on the PGA TOUR this year, Scott has three top 10s. His worst finish was a tie for 38th at THE PLAYERS Championship. Outside of that, he has just one finish outside the top 15.

The guy he replaced also hasn’t played a tournament in more than two months, and even before being sidelined by back surgery was off to the worst start of any season of his career.

"You want to do it playing well and getting good results,” Scott said recently of getting to No. 1. “But it's just the way our system is.”

I hope so, been waiting patiently for him to break through. He's currently on my fantasy team bench for this week.

I really don't understand the world rankings and disregard them for the most part.

Man, Dufner certainly has been showing a bad temper lately. The term "Dufnering" is soon going to be synonymous with throwing your club at your bag.

What happened to Rickie??

He sure needs gods help on that round. He had two triple bogey's. OUCH!!

Maybe he got a pinched nerve in his back when he and Bubba were flipping from their hotel rooms into the pool.

Adam (tied for 77).... - you need to pick up the pace here - you know, start your signature "last couple of rounds are great" thing sooner.  ( It's still early, but Henrik is doing what he needs to do so far)

So Stenson (tied for 4th) will pass Scott and become No. 1 in the world if he wins and the Aussie doesn't.

-- Stenson finishes fourth and Scott is fifth or worse

-- Stenson finishes sixth and Scott is 10th or worse

-- Stenson finishes 12th and Scott is 20th or worse

-- Stenson finishes 15th and Scott is 30th or worse

-- Stenson finishes 17th and Scott is 40th or worse

-- Stenson finishes 19th and Scott is 50th or worse

-- Stenson finishes 29th and Scott is 53rd or worse (winning zero points)

I'm not sure where the same breakdown lies for Kuch (tied for 83), but it's likely similar?

Yeah and Stenson's T3 right now at Wentworth, so i'd be surprised if he's not number one come monday [quote name="Chilli Dipper" url="/t/74728/2014-crowne-plaza-invitational-at-colonial-discussion-thread#post_993623"]I've never heard of this Brice Garnett guy; he doesn't even have a Wikipedia page. Knowing how this season has gone, my guess is he'll win by six strokes.[/quote] LOL, he doesnt even have a wikipedia page!?

it's early yet

I like both these players (as well as) so there's no outcome here for #1 that I wouldn't cheer on

Did not Scott recently marry a woman?  His poor play may be some kind of response to the rigors of the honeymoon life. Ya know what i mean?

Mother of God. Another week with no namers in the lead. Brice Garnett, Chris Stroud, and Robert Streb 1-2-3. Wtf? You know its bad when Chris Stroud is the "big" name in that top 3. Here's hoping DJ somehow wins this so golf doesnt projectile vomit any longer.

    • Many specialty clubs are Black Anodized  Steel these days. Not that long ago, the new thing was BE (Berylium Copper (or however you spell it). Those were FUGLY and I hated them when doing QC for Acushnet. Not to mention they are probably toxic.  ( I do not really know that). Just about all (or at least many) of  the new hybrids are black including the face and sole. It has been stated that folks used to allow the BE wedges to intentionally rust to give them more "bite".
    • Greetings @PaddyMac . Was out one a windy day last November, and joined a couple of players from a local college golf team. One player was from Ireland, and had an XStiff driver with 8* loft. The last hole was a 440-yd. par 4 into a 35 MPH wind. (My tees were only 390 yds.) He hit a line drive that never got 15 feet off the ground; it carried out to about 270, and then ran out another 50 yards. My drive from the shorter tees, a solid hit for me, came up about 40 yards short of his, despite my starting advantage. So, I think I understand why you want a shaft that will help you keep the ball lower, in case the wind blows.  As for your driving iron, a couple of extra things to consider. Your new AMT shaft will be heavier than the KKBlack:
            Regular: 108 - 90 = 18 grams // Stiff:........112 - 93 = 19 grams Roughly 18 more grams of weight for the new shaft means the swingweight will increase by +2 units. That will more than cancel out the -1/4 inch trim that would have decreased swingweight by about 0.7 units. As for shims, you would have weigh it. I have limited actual reshafting exerience and none involved shims. @boogielicious, any tips on shims? For other details, check out the Callaway Customization measurement guidelines.
    • I was 6 or 7 years old the first time I played a full 18 holes with my dad, not sure if we played by the proper rules but I remember that I shot 121 (Probably with a few mulligans).  I think I still have that 20+ year old scorecard somewhere in my parents basement, I was pretty proud of myself from what I can remember.
    • Yes, of course. I would only fix it if I was waiting to putt and I noticed a pitch mark. 
    • I like to think I leave the course better than I found it.  This includes ball marks, divots and trap raking (not that I am ever in traps).  I fix lots of ball marks on almost every hole.  I play mostly private and they are not a lot better than the public courses I play on. I use a single tine tool or a tee.  FWIW at a  country club that I play regularly they give out the single tine tool and their "how to" specifically says do not twist a forked tool it breaks the roots. http://foregreens.com/images/ForeGreens_0009.jpg
