DJ will win a major, hell, he could win at St. Andrews and/or Whistling Straits...Same thing was said about Phil and endured as many or more heartbreaks before he got his first.

Fun fact. For the week DJ had better putting stats than Spieth and actually had better stats than him in the final round. [url="http://www.usopen.com/en_US/scoring/stats/putts.html"]http://www.usopen.co...tats/putts.html[/url]

That really shows just how misleading stats can be. Putted well most of the week, until very late. That putt on 16 after the great bunker shot, ugh!

And wouldn't you take enough club to get there on 16?

DJ will end up with 4 majors. He's too talented not to win.

No. One player is a master with the wedge and is second to none as a scrambler. The other can't take advantage of his ridiculous length off the tee because he's horrid on wedge-distance approaches.

Until DJ gets better with the putter and is at least passable from 150 and in, which is PW distance for him, he won't win majors.

DJ had arguably the best weekend off the tee in a major in the history of golf. And still didn't win.

If DJ keeps hitting 320-350 yard bombs down EVERY single fairway... you're out of your freaking mind if you think he's not winning a major. He could win 2 majors this year. He certainly needs to get that wiped stroke fixed... no one makes putts with that stroke.

Think he missed two greens on 10 and 11 with short irons in from the middle of the fairway and bogeyed them both. Costly in the end.

I thought he was gone because of that, only Spieth's slip at 17 and a great shot into 18 brought him back into it.

Oh man oh man the possibilities if DJ could putt. A playoff today would've been epic. But you gotta hand it to Jordan. Not many have won the first 2 majors of the year. In the modern era isn't it jus Hogan, Nicklaus, Tiger and now Jordan? That is some really really really exclusive company.

Thing is, he won't keep hitting those bombs down every fairway. He's 156th on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy. He wasted a historic driving tournament. When you combine the length and accuracy, its fair to say he wont drive the ball in a tournament ever again like he did this weekend.

Still, its of little consequence if he can't hit his short irons/wedges better. I mean, these approach stats are ghastly for someone with his length off the tee:

75-100 yards: 137th
100-125 yards: 123rd
125-150 yards: 86th

Those distances are all wedges for him, whether it be sand wedge, gap/attack wedge, or pitching wedge. His LOWEST average proximity to the hole for those shots is 18'. And he's hitting probably 8 of these shots EVERY round.

He doesnt give himself enough true scoring chances. And when he does hit it close, he's one of the worst on Tour with the putter in his hand (182nd in putts from inside 10 ft).

Its plagued him his entire career. And its held him back from being a truly special player.

3 jack from 12'4". Unbelievable.

Unbelievable?

What made it most surprising to me is that he got a perfect read, especially on the speed of the putt, from Jason Day. There's no greater advantage than seeing one of your competitors putt directly down your line.

I don't know if he was thinking "make the eagle and win outright," but he obviously would have been best served by lagging it very gently down there and having a tap in for birdie. After seeing Day's putt, he should have been able to cozy it down there.

He's got a bare minimum of 10 more years of good years to try. I think he'll be fine.

You don't get on the PGA Tour and in the final group of the U.S. Open if you can't putt. Just had a tough day yesterday.

Just something he needs to work on. He's too good not to win a major soon.

IIRC, he's over 100 in the "strokes gained-putting" category this year.

DJ has not learned how to win. He will figure it out. Easy to say he choked sitting from your couch. Spieth did the same thing on 17, He choked too. He just had 1 extra for cushion.

He doesn't know how to win? I think he's won 11 times on tour. Guess he just got lucky those 11 times...

That he won't win a major is harsh. But DJ is clearly not yet ready to be a champion. 14 feet to win a US Open (and a 2 putt to extend) is a classic test of champions and he failed yesterday. I bet, before long, he'll have another shot and hopefully he's learned.

    • Sony Open Pics from January 11, 2022 Part 1
      I was able to get out to the Sony Open today to take a few pics.  I guess due to Covid precautions they kept the spectators pretty far from the players.  Also due to camera restrictions they've put in place, I wasn't able to bring the big lens like I normally do. Hopefully they'll ease up on the ropes and I'll be able to get more pics tomorrow!
