GolfWRX members predict what we’ll see on the PGA Tour in 2018

Published

on

Get out in front of 2018’s biggest PGA Tour storylines and secure bragging rights or guarantee ridicule when what you’ve seen in your crystal Pro V1 does/doesn’t come to pass!

Golfer929 fired up a forum thread devoted to 2018 PGA Tour predictions (otherwise known as the 2018 portion of the 2017/2018 wraparound season).

Here are a few of his prognostications.

“Tiger will make the cut in 2 of 4 majors
Tiger will have 2 Top 10 Finishes this season
Lock for a Win: Rickie Fowler
Lock for not winning any event: Henrik Stenson
Spieth nabs 1 major and 3 wins
Breakout Player: Bryson DeChambeau
Player of the Year: Rickie Fowler”

PJC says

“Look for Sneds to shine some more light after taking many months off, I think he will be ready come Torrey Pines time. Jason Day will poop out, but the media will continue to inflate him for whatever reason. Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Hideki Matsuyama to have very big years.  Justin Thomas maybe so, so. Believe it or not, I think that Keegan Bradley will have a good somewhat consistent season. I don’t think we will hear Pat Perez’s name for a while once we get started into the actual 2018 season.”

DavePelz4 offers this hot take

“If Tiger plays and contends in an event GolfWRX will explode.

If Tiger plays and doesn’t contend in an event GolfWRX will explode.”

And Conrad1953 may be the most clairvoyant of all…

“Phil gets the moniker of “best player not to win for 5 years”.

Patrick Reed gives up trying to crack into the top 5…..says he mis-spoke
and meant to say top 10.

Sergio will say he’s happy to not win any more majors.

Chesson Hadley gains 5 lbs and loses his swing and goes on a crash diet.

Beef wins the Masters and says Arbys will be catering the 2019 Champions Dinner.”

Entering the winter hibernation portion of the PGA Tour calendar, there’s no better time to make your bold calls for the 2018 year

Check out the thread, and let us know what you expect on the big tour in 2018.

    Don’t underestimate Justin Thomas as you did by barely covering him most of 2017.
    I predict JT winning 7 events again this year including 2 majors. This guy is crazy good.

    thats why these readers are amateurs. first of all my boy henrick will win thats absurd to think he can’t win second tiger will contend a whole bunch, bryson dechambeau is nobody and never will be and ricky is too small to be a dominate player period. oh and speith is capable of wining 3 out of 4 majors because this boy is a different breed than any competitor out there, he has a special mental capability period.

Published

If you’re on Instagram, you’re hopefully aware that we are ‘gramming it up as well (@golfwrx). And if you’re not following us, well, that hurts our feelings more than a three-putt bogey.

Even if you do follow WRX on Instagram, however, you may not be aware that an abundance of equipment enthusiasts are hashtagging their photos #GolfWRX. We feel it’s only right to feature the best of the WRX-tagged imagery here.

And if you’re not on Instagram, well there’s no way you could see these photos, so think of this series as a handy filter for the best #GolfWRX photos from the past 24 hours.

Report: No tickets will be sold for Tiger-Phil match

Published

on

Sorry, fans, you’re not going to be able to buy tickets to the Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson $9 million megamatch at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas, November 23.

Per a report from the Las Vegas Review-Journal, only a “small gathering of sponsors and VIPs” will be allowed on course. The report also indicates that, in contrast to Phil Mickelson’s promised primetime (ET) showdown, the match will be played under the Nevada sun. The official start time is yet to be announced, ditto the PPV price.

We corrected the promo graphic below to eliminate the crowd. But right-handed Tiger Woods swinging a left-handed club still needs fixing.

Woods is the -220 favorite at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. Mickelson is a +180 underdog.

WATCH: Is this the craziest hole-in-one you’ve ever seen?

Published

on

Golfers often say that getting a hole-in-one is all luck. (Keep in mind that Tiger Woods, arguably one of the most skilled iron players ever, says he has 19 holes-in-one… so maybe not all luck.) But certainly there are some holes-in-one that are “luckier” than others.

And then there’s this shot by Eddie Pepperell at the 2018 British Masters…

Definitely a great shot, and he absolutely took dead aim, but how this golf ball found the bottom of the cup is mind-blowing. It seemed to bounce off the ground, go up the flagstick, hit the ground, then side hop itself right into the basket. Wow.

But is it crazier than the bank shot?

That one is hard to top.

Or how about the all-time classic Bugs-Bunny-assisted hole-in-one by Michael Jordan in Space Jam?

Looney Tunes aside, here’s what Pepperell had to say about his hole-in-one.

He may not have seen what happened at the time, but he’ll see it on highlight reels for years to come.
