Next to win first Major


Recommended Posts

Who will break the ice
I was reading "Best to not win a Major" and started thinking about
who might be the next to break through.
1.) Monty? is he past the time?
2.) Sergio? can he shelve the demons?
3.) Adam S.? Good enough hitter, but good enough player?
4.) Romero ? wouldn't surprize a lot of folks.
5.) DiMarco ? Good enough player, but good enough hitter?
6.) Cink, Donald, Rose, Casey, Immelman? Will the timing ever be right?

I know I've left some out, but not on purpose.
Answer may lie in , none of the above.
Since I've started this I'm bound to make a guess,
so its (my heart say's Monty) but my head says CINK.

TBD
Tour Edge Exotics CB 4 16.5 Regular Flex
Cobra Baffler hybrid 22* Regular
Mizuno MP 59 5-PW PX 5.0
Callaway MD2 Tour Grind wedges 54 & 58
T.P Mills Professional One 35"

You know its funny I have not given this a great deal of thought but the first names that came to my mind were the two boys from Milton

 

Bubba and Boo both very talented and both have had good years. But I really do believe there are probably better choices.

 

 

How well Sergio plays in the next couple of majors will tell us more about his character than the press conference did. I still think he has five or six majors in him. But he has to get over yesterday first.

 

 

I look forward to reading your choices.

If the following can win a major - micheel, beem, johnson, curtis, hamilton, campbell, then the following are more than capable to follow them

 

Di Marco, Cink, Montgomerie, Appleby, Chad Campbell, Weekly, Choi, Donald, Garcia

 

The following would suprise me if they won a major in the next 5 years

 

Els, Scott, Baddeley, Love 3

 

But hey - Im just a hack from down under

I'm always pullin' for A Scott to win, but I really feel like Trev Immelman is gonna pull off the next "1st time" major.

I'd go with Scott because he's the highest ranked player in the world without a major title(5th). Next after him is Sergio at 8th, and Stenson at 9th to round out the majorless players in the top 10. Hopefully Scott can leave this group sometime in the near future!!

KJ Choi is running hotter than anybody right now

I still have Sergio on my list. A big change in his game during the Open was his course management. The way he dealt with the course management was similar to Tiger. Great ball stricking and I believe his putting will further improve with the new belly putter. Luke at Romero. 10 Birdies are great, but he overpowered. The same for Padraig even to the fact that he won at the end.

The thing he missed was to be a little bit more demanding during the playoff, choose the right balance between risk and safety.

      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date.

      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?

      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
