As for Bryson, he didn't exactly win the tournament in dominating fashion. The guy is really good, but he's a headcase that got lucky. Nobody challenged him at all on Sunday, while he blasted driver all over the planet (at 43" mind you...), and had some of the laziest attempts at birdie I've seen in a long time. He coasted his way into the club house when it was ripe for a massive run. If Justin Rose, J.B. Holmes, Niemann, Fowler, or Woods had caught a little fire on the front run and posted a -2 to -4 early to get them to around the -14 number early, Bryson would have puked and probably shot +2 or +3. All he had to contend with was watching Cantlay be slow.
So, the rest of the field are so pathetic that had no ability whatsoever to reign in a useless golfer, who didn't win in dominating fashion, who swings ugly and has no right to win on the precious southern baptist tour (bar a couple of heathens).
Perhaps if....Justin Rose, J.B. Holmes, Niemann, Fowler, or Woods....had played better than that useless golfer with a strange swing and clubs fit for children...they might have won.....mmmmm me thinks you may have won this weeks trophy.
Alright Mr. Jumps to Conclusions. I never said his swing was ugly, I never said anything about religion, and I never made fun of the clubs he was using. Now who's trolling for likes? I just said he was never really challenged coming in. He shot even par I think, when in MOST other tournaments or years at the memorial, he would have been decimated. Congrats on his win but I stand behind my opinion that he coasted in and it was lucky nobody made a Sunday charge or he would have been watching someone else get handed the trophy.
Here is a real stat to show how well Tiger is hitting the ball tee to green: If he had achieved a strokes gained putting number of just 0.0 last week, he wins the Memorial by four shots. He was playing the course well, putts were not falling.
DeChambeau won it, yes he did, but I agree it was ugly down the stretch. All the leaders butchered 18 in regulation. DeChambeauís poor approach from a perfect spot in the fairway, setting up his 3 putt, was nerves for sure. No way he should be in a playoff because he could not put an easy short iron closer than 50 feet from the hole. His ball striking and accuracy can disappear on him. He definitely looked like he was playing not to lose.
Cantlay and Stanley simply choked. Ben Anís tee shot to the right to open the playoff was weak.
If Tiger can find his putting, look out. Tee to green, he was outstanding.
