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.

Huh?

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.

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.

    • Particularly when that slow group is a couple of serious A-holes.
    • Not really a good option when the teesheet is packed.  They would have to let every group behind them play through. That's why I ask how many of y'all have marshaled a tough course on a busy day . . . . you will hear every excuse in the book.  One of my favorites was a cigar-smoking, smart-talking older guy who had 3 young bucks in his group.  They had held up a 2-some all day, and at the third visit from me, on the 12th tee, he read me the riot-act with some choice, colorful words, saying it was the course's fault for allowing 2-somes to play.  He said he paid twice what they paid, so he was playing the way he wanted. I went back and talked to the 2-some, a husband and wife, and told them they would have to go around that foursome. Not long later I saw them at their car.  They were not upset, but they quit and came in because they did not want to upset the 4-some. See, that's when  I'd like to be able to pull out my tablet and see if they wanted to re-play at a discount. BTW, some 2-somes, often couples, won't book unless we block the other two slots at their tee time.     Wow!  Never heard of that, no-hole-skipping rule. & funny how some slow groups speed up when you play through.
    • Not sure about the other two, but I'm not technically allowed to do that. Mind you, nobody would have caught me if I did. One of the many rules we sign off on with a City of Dayton, OH privilege pass includes not skipping holes. For better or worse, I tend to be rule follower. I suppose given the layout of the course and my being on foot, it would have been a bit awkward anyway. We make the move, they speed up and we hit the next tee at the same time.
    • My instructor tells me that the more golf I play, the more I need to take lessons, not just to get better, but to make sure I don’t develop any bad habits unknowingly. I play 4-5 rounds a week and see my instructor every other week for swing checks. I have bad days on the course and will get frustrated - I usually stop golfing and see my pro right away instead of trying to figure it out myself.  Do you have anyone you are working with? I find it beneficial to have lessons regularly. I see it like a car tuneup - car is running fine but you still get an oil change/service regularly just to make sure things are doing well. Same thing with golf.
    • It was 75° the day before yesterday, and it's 10° now. Why didn't you guys skip a hole and go around the ball-shaggers?
