I think my point has been misinterpreted. 

Of course you have to drive the ball really well.  You also have to hit your approach shots well. 

But that alone won't WIN any tournaments.   You have to be REALLY GOOD at scrambling and putting that week to win. 

But look at all the guys missing the cut every week. They're not missing the cut because they couldn't putt or scramble, they're missing it because they can't get off the tee or can't hit it close enough to the pin.

Not rooting against Lowry but I want this to come down to the last few holes and have like 5 golfers with a legit chance to win.

How do you know that!?  That's just a huge assumption.  If they putted and scrambled better they would make the cut...

It's almost as if the tour keeps these statistics and makes them available to the general public...

I don't think anyone is disagreeing that to WIN on the PGA Tour you have to putt well. 

That's not the point of the "long game is more important than short game" argument.  Putting is important, just not as important as ballstriking (this has been posted many, many times on the site).

Ugh, what is with Dustin's distance control on his wedges today?  His approach to the 4th also wasn't that great. 

Dunno, it was only a yard or two out and he still has a birdie putt. Could have been much worse!

The US Open web leaderboard (http://www.usopen.com/en_US/scoring/index.html) is lagging behind the telecast by many minutes. Garcia birdied the 5th a while ago. Typically with majors the web page is on the order of seconds behind the telecast. First world problem, I suppose:

Just like the hockey analytics scene...  Some new stat comes out with no historical data and you just assume it's the bible.  

I'll watch the tournaments instead of assuming stats paint the whole picture.

DJ bombing his driver!  But not scoring well.   Wonder why...

Only a fool would provoke an argument that got him warned before. Grow up.
