This may happen. But it isn't an absolute.

You are correct. That is shown in my statement by saying, "pretty sure", it means that there is still uncertainty there. My opinion can change with evidence.

Unlike your statement, "Danny was a pure fluke and will never contend in a Major again." This is you stating what you think is a fact, something you think is uncontestable. The guy might end up winning an Open championship. That tournament has a history of giving majors to golfers who you never think would win one. Look at Ben Crane. You could easily say, "Ben Crane will never win a major championship." Well the guy outlasted everyone else at the Open.

Danny Willet will never contend in a major again.

Rory will win plenty if he can figure out how to putt.  Watching him on the putting green is like playing with my friends on our weekend round.  He never seems to make any over 10 feet and misses so many that are in the 6 foot range.

It's not his putting. He needs his approach shots to be better so he has shorter putts.

If he says it three times, like Beetlegeuse, Willett will win the Masters again! :-P

 

Lol. Yeah ...not sure why...I'm just not too big on Willet (obviously). I do agree that maybe Rory's lay it on the line and speak freely attitude (opposite of Spieth) just gives the appearance of less care. Rory is way too talented and young to not win more Majors.

Well, from what I have seen his putting needs a lot of improvement also.  He is not in the same league as Spieth on the greens.

Rory hasn't contended in a major for 3 years now. And it looks like he doesn't care about golf now. I think Jday was an average player that had a hot streak and has cooled off to be an average golfer. Crazier things have happened.

Why did you post this bit of vague, crystal-ball gazing stuff? Did you hope someone would jump in and prove your point? You certainly failed to offer any convincing evidence to support your thread headline.

Gotta disagree. Rory and Day are great players with a lot of years and majors ahead of them. Rory is too good not to give himself at least a few more realistic chances at winning another one.

Not exactly.

Well, I think it may be because @mvmac pretty much finished it.

I'm not sure why someone would actively predict bad outcomes for any player no matter what. They seem more likely to win another major than most touring pros, time will tell. I wish them all the best along with their fellow pros.

Thanks Spieth.

The best way to improve your putting is to give yourself shorter putts. ;-)

Believe it or not but I actually think Day has a better chance at winning a major again than Rory.  Rory just seems disinterested in playing golf when I watch him

Totally agree. He seems excited about 'shutting it down' for the remainder of the year.

One prevailing thought is that athletes who have the drive/work ethic to get to the top of their sport don't have it in their DNA to get lazy and lose that drive....although that is probably the case with most top athletes, it doesn't seem to be the case with Rory IMO. He'll of course say otherwise, but I'm not buying it.

Tell me then, did you predict that Tiger wouldn't have a major after 2008? I bet statistics said he would. It is not silly. Bold predictions occur because someone went out on a limb. If everything was based on stats, then they would be no human aspect to it. 

Of course statistics said he would. Statistics also said Ben Curtis and Michael Campbell wouldn't win a major. I would bet anything that the top 100 great players of all time win majors as a close percentage to their overall win percentage. No special sauce.

Even if Rory is operating below max-intensity from here on out (which is not a given), his driving is so good that he could easily run away with another major (or more).  There aren't many guys out there who have a higher ceiling.  He still gets in the driving groove all the time - hitting it 330 down the middle off almost every tee.  From there all he needs is a couple of hot rounds with his wedges or putter to make a load of birdies.  There's enough variance with wedges and putting that it can easily happen even if he's statistically below average at those skills.

    • Worked on my weight shift today with 7 iron, SW and driver. I’ve been focusing so much on other pieces, this one slipped. Below are the drills.  
    • Maybe they don't bring that, but looking at current OWGR and who is out of the top 20 that could reasonably make their way in, the list is pretty short outside of US players. I don't see any up-and-comers from outside of the US other than maybe Hatton (who is already inside of that mark) and Cam Smith (still won't be playing for EU) that I foresee being inside of the top 25 in 2 years time. I suspect that the US will have another blistering OWGR advantage in 2 years, though I don't think they will put on this kind of show in Rome. Kokrak, Zalatoris and Homa could get inside of that top 21 mark, possibly replacing US or non US players. I am curious to hear who you think comes into the top 21 that is a non-US player in the next 2 years.
    • Day 337: Worked on a weight forward drill today with 7 iron, SW and driver. Filmed it and got some MEVO data with the SW.

    • Just 3 birdies needed to complete the challenge, time is running out though. One hole the 15th I have never had a birdie on it. It is the index 3 I think and it is a long par 4 with the toughest green on the course. Fingers crossed I complete it this year. My best year since I've started playing without doubt.
