  1. Over the next 5 years - Who wins the most majors?

    Spieth is my pick, with Koepka as a dark horse. Koepka's track record in majors is very good, and he's already proven he can win the big one.
  2. Neither Rory Nor JDay Will Win Another Major

    This seems like an unnecessarily bold proclamation. The fact that Rory has kept collecting top tens (if only rarely being thick in the hunt) despite not really being in top form over the last three years indicates to me that he could win one almost by accident. If he keeps consistently being near the top of the leaderboard, he could catch a goofy US or British when the rest of the field struggles with a hard course or weather or something. Day is still a bit more up in the air right now since he's in the midst of a 'swing change year,' so we'll have to see how he comes out of it. Wouldn't shock me at all if he returns to his old form in 2018, however. Golfing fortunes can change in a heartbeat. At this time last year, nobody believed Sergio had the mental fortitude to win a major, and there were whispers that Spieth's Masters collapse had broken him for good as an elite player. Dustin Johnson looked to be penciled in for a monster season and then he slipped down the stairs in Augusta. What counts as "dominant" in this post-Tiger world? Not sure what your timeframe was for Rory's future, but that's a 5-10 year stretch where he wins "a major or two and more tournaments," that's pretty darn good. That's close to a HOF resume itself, which would be an incredible second act to an already-superb career.
  3. Career grand slam - who gets it first, Spieth or McIlroy?

    You're all discounting Zombie Tommy Armour's chances at the Masters next year, huh? He could still surprise you!
  4. 2017 Travelers Championship

    I can understand Day and Rory wanting to quickly get back on track after missing the US Open cut, though Day plays in this tournament often anyways.
  5. 2017 U.S. Open Discussion Topic

    Do we know who the alternates are? One is already in the field, whomever replaced Ryan Moore. Is alternate #2 (or later, if more people drop out) just waiting with his clubs at the tee, hoping for clear weather and no delays so Phil can't make a miraculous return?
  6. 2017 U.S. Open Discussion Topic

    Even if he didn't, I feel the USGA will absolutely give Tiger as many special invitations as he wants if he's able to play. The USGA is usually pretty good about giving past champions at least one extra year, or a special invite if the Open is at that past champion's winning course. In Tiger's case, they'll bend over backwards to get him in the field, as both a three-time champ and as golf's biggest star.
  7. PGA Championship Moving to May

    I don't think there's any chance the R&A would do this, but maybe the most logical idea would be to move the British Open to May and the PGA to July. I'm not sure what the weather situation would be like for the Open rota in May as opposed to July, though many fans feel the windier/rainier the better, so it might not be an issue. You could also totally rejig the schedule by going British in May, PGA in June and then the US Open in July. Part of the reason the PGA is seen as something of an afterthought amongst the majors is because it's the last one of the year. The US Open is always a big deal, so having it as the last major won't diminish it in any way. Heck, you can promote it as the most difficult major as the year's final boss, the monster at the end of the book, if you will.
  8. 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson

    Looks like Jason Day is getting his swing changes figured out, and not a moment too soon before the summer majors
  9. 2017 Zurich Classic

    I'm looking forward to this event, it seems like a cool idea that the players are really into
  10. 2017 RBC Heritage Discussion Thread

    Only ten posts in the RBC Heritage thread? Looks like we were all in a post-Masters hangover as well! Always enjoying watching this course on TV, even if I feel like I'd shoot around 140 in a round if I actually played it. Was hoping my countryman DeLaet would be the one with the breakout victory, but oh well.
  11. Let's say you are making your way on to the PGA Tour...

    Clothing and equipment...whoever pays me the most! This could end up with me wearing a spinning advertising arrow down the course, but so be it. Tournaments would be.... 1. Canadian Open, my national tournament 2. Whatever they're calling the L.A. Open these days, Riviera is such a lovely-looking course 3. Pebble Beach Pro-Am, as long as I could team up with celebrity partner Scarlett Johansson 4. Heritage Open, Hilton Head looks like a blast to play 5. Greater Hartford Open, since Hartford is America's most scenic city!
  12. 2017 Masters Tournament

    Matsuyama, Spieth and DJ all winning in consecutive weeks is creating a lot of drama heading into the Masters, not to mention Justin Thomas emerging as a contender with his terrific play. Already three wins for Thomas in the wrap-around 2017 season! You have to consider those four the big favourites....though there's also McIlroy going for the career grand slam, Day looking to contend again (though this could be a 'lost to swing changes' kind of year for him), Fowler looking to break through with a major, plus old standbys like Mickelson or Westwood likely to be buzzing around the leaderboard again. Maybe we'll see Langer turn some heads again, or Couples once again be in the mix heading into the weekend. In short, this is promising to be a terrific Masters, even if/when Tiger has to WD again.
