It's a couple of months until the Masters & wonder who fellow WRXers like for the 2018 majors. Here are my picks:

Masters/Augusta National--Jordan Spieth.

U.S. Open/Shinnecock Hills--Dustin Johnson

British Open/Carnoustie--Jon Rahm

PGA/Bellerive--Tiger Woods

Spieth plays Augusta consistently better than anyone currently, at least to my view. DJ seems to play U.S. Open setups very well. Jon Rahm is going to win several majors & Carnoustie seems like a good opportunity to get his first. Don't know anything about Bellerive, but assuming he stays healthy Tiger will have most of a season to get his game back in competitive shape. What about you?

WITB:
Titleist 910D3 9.5
Sonartec SS07 14
Titleist 910H hybrid 18
Bridgestone J40 DPC 4-PW
Vokey SM6 50,54,60
Cameron Newport 2
Bridgestone Tour B XS

Clubs are subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination at any time...

You heard it here first...

Masters- Westwood. Following in Garcia's footsteps, he finally breaks though

US Open- LeftyLuck as a local qualifier...
                 Kevin Chappell. Like his swing. Made a bold prediction in earlier thread.
Frostfield has a pretty touchy bet with me if this happens. :)

British- DJ. Just looks real solid. Either him or Stenson again.

PGA- Kevin Chappell. Again, I know. I said 2 majors, i am sticking to it.

Bonus: I say Tiger plays well in 3 of the majors, and is seriously in contention in 1 of them.

masters/spieth, followed by bubba and leishman
us open/rose, with molinari as a 2nd
the open/garcia or rahm
pga/dj

DJ is the ivan lendl of golf ... will not win at augusta, imo ... spieth at augusta every year till he retires, though since bubba's gone back to a real golf ball and gained some weight back, i'll pick him ... shinnecock will set up as a traditionally difficult us open course, so bombers will be frustrated ... sergio will rekindle some of the magic he had at carnoustie, coupled with the knowledge he can win the big one ...

It's golf and I didn't see any rules, so I'm picking two!

Masters - Rory or Tiger
U.S. Open - Day or Rory
Open Championship - Sergio or Rahm
PGA - Tiger or Spieth

If neither wins, their better ball takes it.

Can't believe I'm bullish on Tiger, but if he is in the hunt at the Masters it would be pretty exciting and I love the PGA, but it needs him in the hunt.

And my preference would be for Stenson to grab the Masters but he never really plays all that well there, so heck with him.
