Want to pick Jason Day @ PGA Champ, but his back and mental issues give me pause.

If add his strokes gained off the tee with his strokes gained on approach shots. He is averaging around 0.097. Basically he's  tour average with his long game. He's not winning any tournaments with those stats.

Sure he could win regardless of what his past stats say. Will he? Who knows it doesn't look good for him but he hits it high and far. He seems to hit that mid life lull this season with stuff off the course. Plenty of guys have won majors though when coming into a tournament not playing their best.

If he wears those high tops I hope he misses the cut.  Those plus his yoga meditating before every shot make me hope he's so far down the leaderboard they don't show him on TV lol

My choices for a #3 golfer are Phil, A Scott, or JB Holmes 

Leaning towards Scott right now because of his length and ability to play well in bad weather 

Advice ?

Yeah, either pick who is playing well or just throw some darts to figure out who will have a "hot" week.

I don't think he's going to contend.

I agree. I probably would just pair him with Danny Willet and get it over with.

I said after the anchoring ban took effect Adam Scott would fade back into obscurity, and aside from a few tournaments here and there, it has proven true.  He's not winning another major.

Yeah he should just go see Bernhard and ask him how to get away with anchoring. Or just wear baggy shirt and no one will know otherwise.

Ok, so I felt exactly the way OP did, looks like Day so far has proven the doubting thomas that I am, wrong.

Except that he's pull-hooked every shot he's hit in the last six holes.

    • He got that advice already. We can also have a discussion about practice swings. Let’s be careful about volunteering others to give free advice, too. 🙂
    • So many variables. 90%? No. I carry 4 wedges for a reason.. Different lofts, different bounces. All capable of being hit full bore ( Which I seldom do with the 60) every other one better at thick or thin lies. All working best for me being laid somewhat open, using the bounce + and being a bit aggressive. Yet today I went to an 8 iron off my back toe to run a ball 25 yards up to a small shelf the pin was on, perched between the hill and a sharp drop off to a bunker. It wasn't even a fair pin placement, much less design. The designer should be doing courses where the clowns nose lights up when you get close. The jackknob who put the pin on that sliver of ground should be tarred and feathered,
    • I’ve slowed down a bit on my practice but I’m still working on my swing. I shot 88 last week and my handicap is coming back down but I’m kind of stuck for the last month or so and not really sure what my focus should be. Looking at my video I feel I may be getting a little flippy. My biggest miss with my irons is hitting fat shots. With the driver it’s a two way miss. Contact with my driver is the best it’s ever been but I’m still prone to spraying it.     
    • I was about 18” from a hole in one on the par 3 tenth hole today. I birdied the hole.
    • Welcome to TST Jason.   Recording your swing will help the experts here give your some great advice.
