DJ or Rory

  1. 1. DJ or Rory



Recommended Posts

I went with DJ but both are great players and will win additional majors.  There is a very deep field and no golfer today is dominant. Tiger and Jack were dominant and if you recall if Tiger was not in the field for a tournament there was an unwritten asterisk next to the winner's name.

I voted neither. While both of them are very much in their prime (in terms of age) - Rory 28, Dustin 33 (and Jason Day, who should also be included in this conversation, is 29), I have this feeling that Jordan Spieth, a little bit behind behind them at aged 23, might just go on the absolute rampage and grab a bagful of majors in the next few years.

You could be right but just out of curiousity, why do you think Spieth has the best chance of going on a run? I hope I'm wrong but between Day seeming to be more of a family man now and his health issues, I could see him being a one and done

Just a gut feeling, that's all, which I do know, in the strange world of Sandtrap science/pseudo-science when it comes to quantitative analysis (see Tiger vs Jack thread), isn't really good enough.

He's younger than Rory, Day, and DJ. He's already won two majors. OK, he collapsed and gifted Danny Willett a green jacket, and looked shell-shocked afterwards, but I suspect he has the strength of mind to get over that. If you're looking for the next Tiger, I'd look in his direction. I just think he's going to go on a run.

I really really want to see Jason Day get back on track but don't know how hungry he is to really try to stay on top. I think DJ and Jordan seem the most determined to be number one. I think DJ has atleast 2 or 3 more majors in him.

Ugh please no.  I can't stomach anymore yoga meditation for 5 minutes before every single shot.

Ironically, Day said he was going to slow down this year because he thought he plays better slower. That didn't work out well.

Yeah, I remember him saying that.

I'm looking in no one's direction right now. Spieth had one great year. Over the next 11 years he needs to average 6 wins a season which includes 1 major a season to match what Tiger did. Which with the competition he is playing against would surpass Tiger's achievements.

I don't foresee him doing this. I think he's good for half of that at best. Which would make him one of the top 10 golfers of all time. He just doesn't have the overpowering ability Tiger had. His strokes gained tee to green doesn't have the top end like Tiger had. The top two golfers of all time had that top end tee to green ability that could squash a field.


Back to the topic, if we are talking about A-Game, I am going with Rory. I haven't seen DJ blow away the field like Rory can.

i voted neither also.  just like others have said too much talent for anyone to be a dominate #1.  

  i kinda lean towards speith as finishing with the best resume.  he is great in all aspects of his game except driving.  but he is good enough there and his iron play is really good.  he hits a ton of greens...add in being a fair amount younger...

The only one I like watching is Spieth.  Rory's putter worries me.  I can't relate to DJ.  DJ seems like a great talent and so does Rory but I question their hunger.

Spieth to me seems the hungriest.

 I think that Rory is the most dominant player. And I believe that he has not exhibited that dominance because he's wanted to be one of the guys. Rory has not wanted to assume the aura that it takes to be number one, he doesn't want the negative perception that was given to Tiger.  I do think that Rory will understand soon that to be number one you can't be the most liked player. Both tiger and Jack understood this and chose to be the dominant player as opposed to being one of the guys.

    • This comment makes me think of Mid South #2. 😉 I assume you remember driving the green in fourball at 2017 Newport Cup.  Pretty sure that was a longer carry than this one lol. 
    • Just got home from Wisconsin.   Again, thank you @cipher and @iacas for setting this up and running this trip. I had a fantastic time and it was great to see most of you again and to meet some of you for the first time. The courses were amazing, and we could not have ask for better weather. The most rain we got was a few sprinkles today for like 3 minutes. 
    • Yes I know. We’re celebrating it.
    • Did you end up checking it out?
    • You know some people pay good money to be spectators at events like these. 😂. I have a friend who thinks I'm a slow player because I always get to the course after him, take two practice swings as part of my preshot routine, and use Aimpoint when putting what's m whereas he just hits and takes a look at his putt for a second or two before putting.  I don't think I'm a slow player but maybe i am 🤷‍♀️. That said, generally speaking, i don't have a family or anything i have a specific time that i have to get back for so a 4-4 5 hour round doesn't bother me as long as we're not stop, go, stop, go, stop, go.  If it feels like we're in rhythm then i generally won't be bothered bc the round won't feel like it takes a while.  I guess playing at public courses generally on weekends when you know it's going to be filled with ppl just makes me expect that a round won't be less than 4 hours.
