OP here, not M.I.A. Couldn’t get to the phone until I got off work. I’ll be the first to admit it. I was wrong. I flat out missed this prediction based off what I said. I thought DJ would for sure ran

This is a forum for everyone to enjoy, and for posting opinions, for going out on a limb and being provocative. OP owned his wrong prediction and you call him dumb. I don’t understand why you’re so ru

Well this prediction is now in the trash

Hello everyone, this is the OP. I forgot my password, and no longer use the email that it was associated with. Are we still saying that I am trolling with my prediction or am I leaning closer to being Nostradamus? I don't want to jinx it, but when I get this week right, I will hit double digits and become 10-10 in the last 10 majors. It was very funny to go back to old posts of people who said they would have all won another by now or that they have 8 left between them! Hope you're all staying safe and doing well during these times.

Ha yeah, I remember this thread. I remember the thread police asking for it to be "locked" as it doesn't conform to their views and that in their opinion you are a toll. The prediction is holding up well. In my opinion I think Rory and Day with his form building will win another one or more. Rory being a fav of mine so I hope he does. I also remember your courteous replies and i am sure you would acknowledge a win by any of those three. Anyway it will be an exciting PGA this week which in my opinion is the least prestigious of the majors.

Well, another year down and this prediction is still coming up roses. At this point it’s been five years since Rory took a major, four years for Day, and three years for DJ.

 

Now it's six, five and four years for DJ respectively, although DJ and Day played well at the PGA.  I re-read the thread and someone extrapolated that they were all going to play for another 20 years (17 now) and have four majors per year.  The percentages are dwindling yearly, although would love to see Rory win the Masters.

 

Fun topic.  Well done OP.

I would prefer Rory not win the Masters unless he wins another major again first. Same with Spieth and the PGA. The Career Grand Slam winners are the elite of the greatest ever. Gene Sarazen won seven majors but played the prime of his career before the inception of the Masters, and he won the Western Open when that was considered a "major" like tournament. Player and Hogan have 9 majors (and Hogan likely would have had more due to WWII), and obviously Tiger and Jack have 15 and 18. I don't want to see a 5-major winner be in that elite group.

I think DJ and Rory will both eventually win another one. There'll be some course that suits their eye that they can get hot and just obliterate the competition like Rory did at Congressional. Day I feel like is the best suited to win majors, but he can't seem to stay healthy.

Too bad for DJ that TPC Boston will never host a major

It is funny looking back at all those who responded with insulting or snarky comments who all now have egg all over their faces.

We all have to remember one thing, golf is hard. Really hard. 

 

We can't expect these guys to go out and win every week, or win 10 majors. They can get hot, go on runs, but we can't expect everyone to be the next Tiger; that's what makes Tiger, Tiger. 

 

Take Jack and Tiger out the equation, who has the most majors in the modern era, Gary Player/Hogan at 9. They're just hard to win. Will Colin Morikawa win another? Tough to say, and he has a whole career in front of him. Is it weird that one time major winners are Furyk, Sergio, Davis Love, DJ, while Zach Johnson, Angel Cabera and John Daly have 2. And Padraig Harrington has more than all of them. Rub of the green.

Lol wut? “Looking back”??? Have Rory, Day and DJ all retired since I logged on yesterday?
 

Only another 10 or 15 years to go before you and the OP can pat yourself on the back.

This is just beyond stupid, so I think I'll bow out of the conversation for another 10 or 15 years.....or until the golfers currently ranked #1, #4 and #38 in the world manage to win another major between them.....you know, whichever comes first.

 

Wish there was a way I could put a bunch of money on such a thoroughly foolish proposition.....

Hogan is now the modern era? He played closer to the first 72 hole Open Championship than to today.

 

But yeah, majors are hard to win. Primarily because there are only four a year. Asking a pro to win an event or two a year is difficult enough. Asking them to win one of just four events is exponentially more difficult.

That said Rory and DJ are definitely still in the running. Day who knows?

It's just amazing that we have so many time travelers in this thread!  Thanks for chiming in from 20 years in the future guys!

 

Seriously, this thread is I-just-need-to-make-a-few-more-putts-then-I'll-be-down-to-a-4-handicap-and-for-sure-absolutely-be-able-to-beat-up-on-LPGA-tour-players levels of dumb.

 

I mean, he's not wrong so far and with the way most of them are playing, still not wrong.


But way to let it effect you so much you're reaching stroke levels of blood pressure readings.

There’s a big difference between “not wrong so far” and “right.”

 

Simply remarkable how many people aren’t capable of understanding how linear time works.

 

And yeah, “the way most of them are playing” that’s another good one. Takes dedicated, long-term garbage playing to be #1, 4, or 38 in the OWGR.

 

Just beyond stupid. But hey, good on you for embracing it.

I gotta think that Rory or DJ will pick another up at some point, but the longer time marches on the more I think it won’t happen.  Rory just doesn’t putt well, especially on fast greens and his short game has never been great.  
 

DJ, I mean who knows where his brain is at?  Jason Day has back problems, 

 

most guys win their majors in a 10 year window, except for the all time greats.  Sure one could fall in their lap but I don’t see these guys going on a run of winning multiples.  Same goes for Sergio, Scott, etc. 

I pick 14 of the following:
Ping G400
Ping G410 3, 5 and 7 wood
Ping G 400 4 hybrid
Ping G 4-U
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 54, 58 SS
Grips NDMC +4
Odyssey Pro #1 black
Hoofer
ProV1x-mostly
ECCO Biom Hybrid 3
