I want to see him play in a big event that is long with penal rough. Everybody seems to think long courses will suit him, but he is erratic with the driver. He hit some absolutely terrible drives at Kapalua and those are the easiest to hit fairways on tour. I know the Tour is a lot of bomb and gauge, but I’d like to see how he would’ve faired at a place like Shinnecock.

When they start playing courses at 8,500 yards, he's a lock for a couple of tournaments a year.

But until then, who knows?  I would go conservative.
On Sundays, I used to play hickory

Cameron was an infant
When he saw Tiger's first win
96 Las Vegas Invitational I think it was
And from then he wanted to do the same
Got himself a driver
Used to swing it every night
Now he's on the tour himself
And everything's alright
Don't you know?

Cameron told his Mama,
"Hey, Mama, I'm goin' away,
Gonna hit the big time,
Gonna be a big star someday"
Mama came to the door
With a teardrop in her eye
Cameron said, "Don't cry Mama,
Smile and wave goodbye"
Don't you know?


Yeah...

Don't you know Cameron is a shooting star?
Don't you know?

Probably another Charles Howell III.

Everyone loves jumping on a bandwagon.

Typo - thanks.

Gary Woodland rookie year clocked a 200 and Champ's highest just under 199.
