Who knows if he'll be a flash in the pan, but man, he hits it far.

It will be fun to see him play in more of the high profile tournaments throughout 2019. I hope he does well. He could be a fun superstar to watch.

He just started on the Tour and he's a star already.  He'll be a superstar in no time.  I'm rooting for him.  If anyone is going to pick up Tiger's mantle, I think it will be Cam Champ.  The Masters is going to be a pitch and putt for him, like it was for Tiger.  I can't wait to see how great he'll be.

He won't be the next Tiger, but he's going to follow in his footsteps more than just a little bit.  

We had Arnie and Jack.  Then we had Tiger and Phil.  Now it'll be Bryson and Cam.  Exciting battles to come.

Very exciting to see him in the Mayakoba, playing so well on a course that isn't really geared towards big hitters. 

Too early to accurately gauge his potential but there's every reason to believe it would be very high indeed. 

Also up there is Aaron Wise, who I also think is a great prospect.

I've heard of him, but what's the deal with all the hype? Is it just because he hits it far or does he have a good all around game to go with it?

I think it's a combination of hitting it far and , taking into account his age, the potential for improvement elsewhere in his game.

I mean he’s already won an event this year. And he’s been staying close to the top of the leaderboards in the others. He already has a really sound game. So add in the drives and you have a fun guy to watch.

Well I was really liking the guy as one of my picks in the Mayakoba, that is until Sunday afternoon on the 14h hole, when he went DB, B, P and DB again, had he just parred those holes he would have finished right up there close to Kuc.

From an aesthetic pov relative to others the look of the swing, at least to me, it looks the smoothest compared to long hitters. Kind of like in tennis there are some players that underachieve but I will go out of my way to watch them play because their groundstrokes is like art in motion.

Look at that lead wrist. Bow city.

Cameron is having some trouble as of late, one made cut since February.

Has a bit of an issue breaking par in the first round, 81 is tough to come back from.

If you've ever wondered what an average PGA Tour or LPGA Tour players' Trackman stats look like, then you're in luck.
Quote

Below is a list of PGA Tour averages for every club in the bag. As you can see, the club speed for the average PGA Tour pro is 113 mph with driver. Cameron Champ currently leads the club-head speed charts this season with a 129.72 average.

That average speed is insanity.

I wonder if his speed is part of the reason for his struggles? All of his errors are magnified.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
