Watched him hit both days this weekend...if I hadn't heard about his distance, I would have said he was one of the weaker players on the US squad...btw, all the players kill the ball...there aren't many short hitters anymore!

From my very limited experience watching these youngsters this weekend, I'd put money on Thornberry to make it on tour...homemade swing, lots of grit.  Reminds of Patrick Reed, but hits a fade.  Brief conversation with Spider Miller (team captain) he seemed to agree.

Any thoughts on the two Scottish players, Syme and MacIntyre? Both are well ranked (8 & 14 respectively) and Scotland badly needs a player(s) to transition into the top level of the professional game.

I asked one of the members of the GB&I team who their strongest player was and he mention Syme...FWIW.  Unfortunately, I had a difficult time telling many of them apart aside from the lefty!

Agreed on Thornberry and appreciate that he has his own unique swing.  I think he's going to be a rich man's JB Holmes type of player.

Jack Renner won three PGA Tour events and about $15,000,000 (inflation adjusted) in his career. Good luck to Cameron passing that.

Swing looks pretty orthodox for a long driver. Like Sadlowski.

It's interesting to see how many are consumed by driving distance, and not just on WRX.  The TV talkers are also consumed by it.

Meanwhile, Champ got toasted (6 and 4) by a much shorter hitter as he was six over par for 14 holes.

Champ went 1-2-1 for the week.  Meanwhile, three shorter hitters went 4-0-0.  Go figure.

Bombing the ball is highly entertaining.  But low scores still win.

I would't call Macintyre a much shorter hitter but I get your point.

its almost as if lowest score wins or something? its golf not golf swing. I tell my students that all the time but they still want to try and bomb it or have a "prettier swing". The fact is the more clubhead speed you have the samller your margin for error. A 10 yard push when swinging 100-105mph on a driver becomes a 30 yard push when swinging 120+. you have a shorter club in all thetime but playing out of the rough or from the trees is tough on a tough day especially in matchplay.
Champ has freakish speed and potential and i wish him luck but distance isnt the end all.
