The anchor ban really killed him

He never anchored.  Nothing happened to him, the game is always up and down, just in a slight lull.

When you are as short as he is there is no margin for error.  Your game, health, and equipment better all be on point and right now he has issues with all of them.

Only two top 10s so far this season but he has finished top 25 in over 50% of his events with just one MC. Given his career record I don't think he's doing too much wrong.

By the way he's still only 42.

17/18 cuts made and just under $1.5 Million in earnings.  Not up to his standards by any means but not a failure either.  Look for him to have a good week this week and probably do well one or two more times this year.
