If that were true, Dustin Johnson would win all the time.
Physical ability between Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth isn't all the much different...meaning that Spieth hits it far enough to compete against anyone..
I would throw in that the person who is mentally sharp for that week, has a better chance of winning.
Occam's Razor, man.
I've made the same point to you now many times, but this is the last:
Your buddy doesn't turn into a beginner when he feels nerves.
Even if he loses a few more strokes to nerves, he's the exception, not the rule. He has a glaring weakness, and his inability or unwillingness to fix or improve it hints toward a larger mental deficit.
At the highest level, yes, the results of one or two shots can be affected by nerves, but even that is just a sliver of their overall ability to put up a score for 72 holes on a PGA Tour level course.
Because when an athlete describes what went wrong in a post round interview, it's always 100% accurate.
1. I do play w/ schmucks (myself included).
2. One of us chokes pretty consistently (one of the schmuckier schmucks we have), and for 10 years he does fine in our $2 nassaus and but only loses $$ in all our "big" games. Even when he's been playing well that year (index down), we play net, so he still loses, and even he admits he just gets the nerves. I'm glad he can be comforted knowing that mental games is a tiny portion of his overall performance.
Gump says "life is like a box of chocolates". I'm allergic to chocolate so this is just wrong, literally, figuratively and in every way.
(That was a whole lot of sarcasm. My mom would kill me if she saw me posting like this. I do mean it in the most fun way possible)
Dustin Johnson has different physical abilities than Jordan Spieth does, none more evident than the playoff at the Northern Trust. That week, Dustin Johnson, the person with the better physical ability, won, and the reason why he won was because he was physically superior to Spieth with his drive on the playoff hole.
No, top pros dont have similar physical abilities.
There is over a 40 yard difference between the shortest driving average (271) and the longest driving average (317) on the PGA tour this year. Pros dont have similar physical abilities.
Welcome. I know it seems like summer now, and for a bit more, but it's officially fall, lol.
Unfortunately, the munis are gonna be a huge letdown compared to the courses you've mentioned , but if you need any info, just holler.
