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

Published

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.

Pat Perez: The R&A “do it right, not like the USGA”

Published

on

Pat Perez opened The Open, as it were, with a 2-under 69, and at the time of this writing, he’s 4 under for the second round and tied for the lead.

Clearly, there’s something Double P likes about links golf. And when he was asked whether he was surprised by how receptive the greens at Carnoustie were after his opening round, Perez shook his head with conviction and said.

“They (the R&A) do it right, not like the USGA…They’ve got the opposite [philosophy] here. I told them, you guys have it right, let the course get baked, but you’ve got the greens receptive. They’re not going to run and be out of control. They could have easily had the greens just like the fairway, but they didn’t. The course is just set up perfect.”

“The U.S. Open could have been like this more if they wanted to. They could have made the greens a bit more receptive,” Perez said. “These greens are really flat compared to Shinnecock. So that was kind of the problem there is they let it get out of control and they made the greens too hard.”

Pat Perez has no problem speaking his mind. While it has gotten him in trouble in the past, you have to respect his candor. The interesting question, as I asked in the Morning 9, is how many Tour pros agree him?

Sure, it’s unlikely any of Perez’s compatriots will join him publicly in his “R&A does it right, USGA does it wrong” stance, but it’d be very interesting to know what percentage are of the same mind.

68 at the British Open in the morning, golf with hickories at St Andrews in the afternoon

Published

on

Yes, golf fans, just another day in the charmed life (or week, at least) of one Brandon Stone.

Stoney (as I assume his friends call him), came to Carnoustie on the heels of a final-round 60 to win the Scottish Open. All he did in his opening round was fire a 3-under 68. Not bad!

But his Thursday to remember was only getting started as Stone made the 25-mile trip south to the Old Course to peg it…with a set of hickory clubs! Well played, sir, well played.

Jean van de Velde’s 1999 British Open collapse is still tough to watch in LEGO form

Published

on

Gather ‘round, golf fans, for the saddest British Open story ever told–in LEGOs.

Maestro of the plastic medium, Jared Jacobs, worked his singular magic on Jean van de Velde’s notorious final-hole collapse at Carnoustie in 1999.

The interlocking plastic brick cinema begins after van de Velde’s approach shot has caromed off a grandstand railing to land on the opposite side of the Barry Burn.
