The equation used to calculate this is:

current age: 27 stated life expectancy: 140 majors per year (usually): 4   => 397

Questions like this are difficult to answer. I’d have thought DJ, Rose and JT would have won more than one each by now with the way they’ve played over the years, but all three are still on one. Bryson could win several more or he could win none, but I’ve heard the phrase from players before that winning your second major is harder as you’re expected to do it.
 

When you see Ernie only won four, Ben Crenshaw only won two, Payne Stewart only won three and Greg Norman only won two, they’re all considered legends by different people but didn’t win many. Major week is a huge pressure pot for the players as you’re playing for history - I’d be shocked if he won more than Ernie. When I’ve watched Bryson over the years I’ve seen him miss some putts you’d expect him to make just like Rory. My guess would be he’d win two or three at most.

He will improve on BK's 4 pack and get a 6 pack.  If he continues to chip n putt like they way he did at Wing Foot then I see a very bright major count.

I think he has a better chance than most of a few majors. He’s one of very, very few who has shown he can make measurable improvements to his game after a few years on tour. Right now, he’s analysing where he has lost strokes at Augusta and what he needs to improve to get 4 good rounds there. I’d be fairly shocked if he wasn’t in contention in one of the next two Masters.

David Duval had a host of health problems, not related to weight training.  He lost a bunch of weight when he embarked on his hyper fitness phase.  BK tore his patellar tendon and finished it off slipping on a cart path.  Not weight training.  BAD got a lot bigger, working with a personal trainer, nutritionist, and swing coach to build his body and swing.  He has bigger muscles, tendons, ligaments, which will possibly make him less prone to injury.

 

You can’t make tendons and ligaments stronger through weight training. As muscles get stronger, the attachments come under more strain than they were strictly designed for, and these are the bits that end up rupturing.

 

HOWEVER, if you’ve watched Bryson he hits very, very few shots flat out on the range. He has the extra wear and tear factored in I believe. Could be a very exciting few years for him

His muscle gain doesn’t make him NFL Linebacker size....what NFL era are you people watching. Swore I thought this was 2020 but appear it’s actually 1920.

How tall is he? They say he's about 230-235lbs right now? There are certainly LBs that size in the NFL. Most are 240+, but they exist. The ones that are 230 are the hybrid speed guys, so in that sense, Bryson isn't close. College football is littered with LBs in the 220-235lb range

He look at least 240 but thats where the comparison ends.

 

Hes at *least 30 pounds overweigh (That spare tire he put on gotta be 15 pounds alone) and he’d probably get seriously injured or killed in the first Q if you put him out there. Much less actually be able to run with these guys. 
 

That said, he’s got some great athleticism to nail drives that hard and that accurately.

 Maybe 3 if he stays interested and healthy that long

   Pro golf is not a long term sport anymore--Lots of money puts out the competitive fire for many

curious as to why people use the "money" thing so often ... money didn't dry up tiger's ambition ... i'm not a believer that bryson's current form translates to the 3rd or 4th best career ever as a pro golfer, but of all the people on the tour at this moment, he strikes me as the least likely to give a damn about money ...

His footwork on follow through concerns me, I can easily see him twisting an ankle.  Ankles are harder to heal the heavier you are, especially with his body not being used to carrying all of the extra weight.

 

Having said that, I can see him winning several more assuming he stays healthy.

He's rotating on his heel which is a releasing move to not damage his ankle or knee. The old days of keeping the front foot planted and standing up to a "balanced" finished that stressed the knee are gone for power players.

 Of course you can make tendons and ligaments stronger through resistance training

    It is just slower growth than muscle. Heavier weights and lower reps build tendon strength


 

Apparently he doesn’t do compound lifts (dead, squat) he’s afraid of injury. But I don’t think only heavy moves with 1-6 reps keep your joints/ligaments fit. Since covid, I’ve been lifting lighter but still in the 8-15  rep range with and still have good flexiblily. 
 

Bryson should be working some cardio, I think. You want to to a killer cardio workout, burns like 500 cal, and lots of punches and kicks and ab work?

Try this....

 As a former collegiate olympic style weightlifter- I am just telling you what we were trained for to increase tendon and ligament strength

   Olympic lifters rely on quickness and tendon/ligament strength as opposed to pure muscle 

     Of course you can get fit and flexible with other exercise but you will not thicken tendons and if you just build muscle by pumping higher reps you will build muscle without equivalent tendon strength- 

    Like dropping a big motor in a car and not beefing up suspension parts

Ahhh, yes makes sense. 
 

I can say for sure that lifting in the 8-15 rep range absolutely lends to progressive resistance and increased loads. I imagine there must be some benefit for the tendons to lifting in the 8-12 rep range to failure, that’s still heavy.

 

And, lifting in this range has completely resolved a bad knee I had since I tore it up playing football in HS. As well as giving me full shoulder strength and range of motion for a shoulder that I couldn’t even raise my arm very high with. In both cases it may have actually been the strengthening of all the muscles surrounding the joints that made the joints healthy again.
 

So I may not be quantifying at the exact same way you are but there are absolutely great benefits to the joints and tendons lifting in the hyper trophy range at even 8-15 reps.

Yes, he wants to be #1 in the world. The money will follow.

BD also doesn't keep his left foot planted throughout impact so he's not placing undo and dangerous torque through his knees, hips and back through impact.  On the surface he appears to have a swing that's less likely to cause injury.  Some guys keep their left foot planted through impact and that causes lots of torque to be placed on joints.   Bryson will be around for  the long haul imo.

ROFL, he's a LONG way from that happening.

People like you were all over him 4 years ago when he turned pro. He keeps proving you all wrong. Right now, he's the most exciting golfer out there. Stays fit, stays hungry, I think there's a lot more to come

3.  It's hard to win more, and he's already 27, so I think more than 5 or 6 is out of the question.  Mickelson has 5, Els 4, Singh has 3.  His short game right now isn't as good as Mickelson's was.  But he seems hell bent on making improvements, so if he has a year like Harrington did, and wins 3 in short order, 6 might be in play.

My opinion.  You are entitled to yours.

 

By the way, diabetes runs in his family.  He should be careful

It is lazy though. You don't say why you think he will get hurt you just jump on that low hanging fruit that has no validation behind it. Pure speculation is all it is with nothing behind it.

Actually, no I wasn't. You are saying things that are untrue about muscle, tendon and ligament development, that's what I am talkimg about.

Its true that attachments develop very slowly in a limited way, and since he isn’t doing any compound exercises I would say they won’t get stronger at all.

 

however, how was I to know that’s what you were referring to?

Oh no not the old Linebacker comparison again. 

“Tiger could have been a linebacker” lol

”Rory could have been a linebacker” Bahahahaha
 

Now Bryson yawn.

 

Almost all decent golfers now are very spindly. I wouldn’t even say Brooks or Woodland are remotely built.

      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
