The majority of the players on this US team have such high floors and are such consistent players (DJ, Morikawa, Finau, etc) that outside of injury to multiple guys I think it's unlikely the team they bring to Rome will be worse than what they brought this year.
Yes a lot can happen in 2 years, but even if a couple guys who are on the team now struggle over the next 2 years and don't have form heading into Rome, there are a number of young players who didn't make this team who absolutely could go to Rome, guys like Sam Burns, Will Zalatoris, even Max Homa come to mind. Guys that can absolutely flush it with their irons and can hold their own off the tee too.
Now it's certainly possible that the course fit in Rome might not be as strong as this year was for the U.S. team, but I don't think the talent and depth this year was a fluke by any means.
We actually got a picture of the 15' gator chillin on the par three. After that I was not going anywhere in the marshes or water.
So it only matters where it last crossed before going into the hazard? For the imaginary hole below you would take the drop where is splashed in. And not where it first crossed the water? So it does matter if the ball crosses back over land even though it never touched it?
Thats fantastic mate, well done..!
I also hit a very similar goal on Saturday, l shot a gross 76 to take my handicap index to 9.5
To say im over the moon is a massive understatement.
My goals at the beginning of this season were: Break 80, single figure HC, work on a Draw
So far my lowest gross round this year has been 74, ive broke 80 5 times now, ive actually broke 75 once also, i have my single figure HC, but l still cant hit a draw consistently hahahaha
Im devastated that the season is all but over here in Scotland, the nights are dark and the weather is closing in
