  1. Heck no! No tour pro would want 200+ yard approach shots into par 4s regularly . I think you can be competitive averaging around 295 which is how far Morikawa and Spieth hit it but 250 is short even for high school golfers. Just for context, if a tour pro played Augusta hitting it 250 off the tee, they would have 9 approach shots on par 4s from 190 or longer and wouldn't be able to reach any of the par 5s in two. That's a ton of hybrids for someone who hits it 250. I think you gotta hit it at least 290 to be competitive on tour. The courses are just too dang long.
  2. The odds of this happening are the same as Tiger shot gunning a beer on live tv before hitting his tee shot on the first hole at Augusta National.
  3. Like the call on Jordan Spieth at the Open. Best links player on tour right now. His Open record since 2015 is downright crazy t4-t30-1-t9-t20-2. He honestly could have won 3 claret jugs by now.
  4. We're officially in the off-season for golf so I thought might be a good time to start a thread about the 2022 season for the PGA Tour. I got some bold and not so bold predictions, feel free to throw anything in the thread! Here are some of my predictions Someone will complete the career grand slam in 2022. I truly believe Jordan Spieth will win a PGA Championship within the next 5 years. If he keeps the driver in play I think Spieth can win at any course. The man is almost always in contention at The Masters and Open Championship, as stupid as it sound he could've have won 6-7 majors by now. I think Rory can win at Augusta if he doesn't have that one round he shoots himself out of the tournament. Tee to green Augusta suits his game perfectly and I think one of these years he'll win it. I also don't think Phil will ever win a US Open, Kiawah was a fluke/lightning in a bottle, he was playing like crap before that week and played like crap the rest of the season (except the champions tour) Will Zalatoris will win on tour Talented kid not much more to say. Justin Thomas will reach number 1 in the world. Most talented golfer on tour IMO. If he improves his putting I think he's got the talent to win 3-4 times a year. Tiger Woods returns to golf before the Masters and makes a run on Sunday at a major. I think this one is a long shot haha.
  5. Does that mean Jon Rahm>Tiger Woods>Jack Nicklaus
  6. Phil's my favorite golfer but I hope he stays away from the booth when he's done playing. He talks way too much and overanalyzes everything to death. I personally believe golf doesn't need that many announcers and the action should speak for itself.
  7. I got rid of youtube tv for this since it's cheaper and I could watch more golf like this on Th,Fri since PGATour Live is on air for like 10 hours.
  8. Never know, but I think Big Cat is on the range right now getting ready for a little event in Georgia!
  9. Called it! He'll be playing PNC
  10. I think he can still contend at courses like Augusta and Bay Hill no matter how bad he's playing. No way he plays more then 10-12 times a year.
  11. Calling it right now Tiger will win a tournament in 2022! He would not post a video if he was playing casually. He is such a private person, he'll be playing soon.

  13. Exactly he played piss poor but the competitor in him didn't quit. If he can play he will. No way he's letting the 2020 Masters be the last tournament of his career.
  14. He won a major and a wgc this year, had 2 more 10s at the US Open and PGA, and was top 20 at the Masters. He's a European Tour member and he earned it.
  15. Not sure about that. Did you watch him in 2015
  16. He's coming back at Augusta! Go big or go home!
  17. Exactly, but you gotta remember Morikawa and Horschel won 2 tournaments each on the ET and both were pretty heavily weighted. Morikawa obviously deserves to be no1 after winning a Major and a WG, and Horschel won the flagship event for the ET and a WGC.
  18. It’s time for the final event on the 2021 European Tour Schedule. The tour goes to Dubai with a reasonable field and Matthew Fitzpatrick is the defending champion. It looks highly likely that an American will win the Race to Dubai for the first time as Collin Morikawa and Bill Horschel are the top 2 in the R2D rankings. World number 1 Jon Rahm is not in the field which is surprising and kind of a blow to the event. Course info: Par 72 7675 Yards Defending Champion:- Matthew Fitzpatrick Notables in the Field:- Collin Morikawa Rory Mcilroy Tyrell Hatton Billy Horschel Patrick Reed Paul Casey Matthew Fitzpatrick Will Zalatoris Tommy Fleetwood Shane Lowry
  19. This is one of the worst courses on tour haha.
  20. I think at this point Phil vs Arnold Palmer is a better debate. Phil blows Faldo out of the water based on wins. They both have 6 majors and Faldo has 43 wins total to his credit while Phil has 45 on the PGA tour alone. I also think the fact that Phil has won 3 of the 4 majors gives him an edge over Faldo. Faldo didn't do much after winning his final Masters and was basically a non-factor in majors.
  21. Pro Golf was never meant to have contracts. I think those guaranteed money events the PGA Tour want to start will basically kill the PGL.
  22. https://golfweek.usatoday.com/2021/11/11/pga-tour-launch-guaranteed-money-events-for-top-stars/ Just saw this on Golfweek, the tour will be playing events in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East starting in 2023 or 2024 and they are all guaranteed money. Interesting seeing the PGA Tour becoming a more global tour and playing all over the world. I wonder if some of these will be rebranded as WGC's?
  23. Tip for Rory: play like you did in Vegas in 2022 and don't do whatever you did at the RC
  24. In 2023 the European team will be renamed Team Florida since they all live their anyways and Tom Brady will be the Captain
