Because they don't win anything of consequence! The OWGR are proven to be a joke year after year, but we still keep the system. How does that make sense?

Matteo is currently in 4th place a few shots behind and is several holes ahead of the leaders. A strong finish could allow him to post a challenging score for the leaders.

Sorry chaps - the Americans have had too many "false starts" to stardom ... unfortunately that hunger for the "next (American) Tiger" cannot be satiated.  

I voted for the European wunderkind.  The Europeans seem to have a good production line!

There surely is a rush to anoint.  Expectations are also rushed as a result.

Yesterday on Morning Drive, Tim Rosaforte was pretty eager to pass the expectations everyone had of Rickie Fowler right down the line to Bud Cauley....who is a rookie.  "When is he going to win?"

Are they that starved?   Wait...don't answer that

Jordan didn't play in the 2011 U.S. Open, all I know is they both played in this one and Jordan came out on top, so did Beau.

As an amateur Manassero has done better than Cantlay at both the Masters and British Open.
Cantlay has only done better than him at the US Open so far.
I'd say the comparisons should wait until Cantlay turns pro. For now Manassero holds many more records than Cantlay...

If this is going to be an event by event battle - when is the next one?

Better hope Cantlay turns pro and gets his card this year - otherwise he'll be stuck on the Nationwide or other tours until at least 2014. Maybe he can join the last 'can't miss' amateur Peter Uihlein in Europe where he is currently ranked 275th.

For every college star turn PGA Tour star there are 50 college stars  turned mini tour grinder.

Anyway, looks like he has a press conference Tuesday, turning pro with Steinberg as his agent so we should get a better idea soon of how he handles playing in the big time all the time.

I am talking about the comments in the press that a press conference has been called for Tuesday where Cantlay is expected to announce he is turning pro. Also mentioned in the press articles is that Steinberg is expected to be his agent.

Don't tell me his number one fan isn't up to speed on the latest Cantlay press and rumors? I would have thought it was the first thing you do when you wake up given your infatuation.

one major thing i have against Cantlay is the fact he looked to me and to a lot of people watching he almost gave up at the Walker cup, out of all the US players he seemed down and hated he conditions the most... he struggled... Uhlein impressed me the most but he has really disappeared so it will all come down to what they are like in 5 years!!!

Assuming that he is turning pro, it will be interesting to see how he does. There aren't going to be a lot of tournaments the two will play together expect for the majors and thw WGCs, unless Cantlay doesn't get his PGA Tour card and goes over to Europe to play. Should be interesting though.

Cantlay doesn't get in on his amateur form now. I'd like to see him do well, but I suspect it might be quite a while before he is playing majors and WGC events.

Oh I know, I was referring to both having the chance to qualify for them. At this point, Manassero will only be exempt for the PGA as he's in the top 100, but he had to qualify for the US Open and the Open shortly after.
Regarding the WGCs, Matteo turned pro in May 2010 and made his appearance at the Accenture in 2011, so it shouldn't be a problem for Cantlay to do the same, right?
I expect Cantlay to be inside the top 100 within the end of the season if he turns pro. Matteo was ranked 88 after 6 months and two weeks.
