    True local boy Xander seems like a great pick. But it’s difficult to remember his recent for off hand.

    Cantlay is from around also and it is easy to remember his form is clearly sharp.

    I’m officially dejected on Tony actually winning.
    Something has to change or added before that happens, like a new sports psychologist or something.

    While it’s very likely Rahm comes out firing on one of his favorite tracks, he has been nursing that tweak. I’ve been nursing a back tweak myself lately and I’m not exactly ready to bet on myself at golf, so I wouldn’t bet on a tour pro either.

    Rory can bounce back and win at Torrey this week. He needs to overcome jet lag issues and the Driver, which ironically derailed him down the stretch at Abu.

        Definitely not feeling as bullish on Rory’s wedge game as his putter.

        It’s really not that difficult to swing softer utilizing the tech they have access to today.

        Still. Despite. He’s poised.
