    • A career grand slam is too hard. Neither will complete the grand slam.

So now that both McIlroy and Spieth each have 3 of the 4 grand slam titles, who will be the first to win all four? Spieth has the momentum. McIlroy looks like he's lost his mojo, but you never know when he'll heat up, it could be in April. Or maybe this is it for them?

What will really curb Speith's achievements are if he: Dates a tennis star. (unless she's really hot! But just make it casual) Changes club manufacturer (DON'T!) Get's engaged (Wel

Spieth. To borrow He is the king of ugly pars. It is uncanny how he just hangs on and on with a B game in comparison to Rory.

Really kind of a toss up - easy to say Spieth after today, but throw out the first 9 of 39 (+5) and he is right in the mix.
Sure Rory didn't play great, but neither did Jordan - either can win without playing their best.

When was the last time Rory really played great in a major? Hes had a couple final round strong finishes to get some back door top5s, but I am struggling to think of a major since his 2014 PGA win when he was really in the thick of it in the final round.

I'll vote Spieth now and every year in mid April... and change my vote every year to McIlroy in mid August or so (or May if the schedule ends up changing)

:P

McIlroy hasn't played the same since he broke up with the tennis player.   Add in the equipment change ...  He's not done but not now...

He did finish 4th today though, so he can't be THAT far away, can he?

I voted Spieth. Rory just doesn't have it for any more majors. Spieth has that deep desire that I think Rory has lost.

I voted Spieth (as I see everyone else has) but mostly because the PGA is a tournament I feel he's actually best suited for, not because I automatically think he's a better player. I would still bet that McIlroy ends up with more majors.

Given Jordans history at the Masters, he just plays that course as good as anyone  save for 1 hole in 2016.  Wouldn't be surprised if he's a 3 time Masters champ by age 28.  Rory has to beat Jordan at Augusta as much as the rest of the field lol

I think they will both get it, hell Jordan might do it this year. If Rory gets his balls busted some, he might win the Masters sooner than later. Jordan wants it more though.

Not true. After he dumped her in 2014 he went on that mad run starting at Wentworth and then winning 2 majors and a WGC in a couple of months. He said that during that time he basically did nothing but practice golf. I suspect that he has lost that desire again.

I voted McIlroy. I just think he's a better player. And I think if/when he wins another, a few more will follow pretty quickly.
