    It’s not that it makes me uncomfortable per se but scotties crying like a baby story felt a lot less revealing and genuine once it turned religious.

    Before the story I was just saying to my wife how he is kinda boring, not revealing, too much by the book. Then My brow raised big time when he started the story because it contradicted what I was saying. But then he brought up his faith and scriptures and I was like “oh that’s why”. Still predictable. Not that it’s bad. It’s just that it’s not sexy.

    Sexy or not, I agree Scottie, more than anyone recently has a chance for a sustained run. Regardless of the number 1, he is too well rounded. Things will come up—life— but if Scottie Sheffler can tee it up, regardless of mind frame, which he also excells at, his game is truly too well rounded to fall off much.

    He’s no Tiger. But he’s also different than all the guys whom have been number since Tiger; guys with at least one weakness in their games. Scottie has none.

    Faldo did bring up some of his funny moves Scottie uses to shape the ball can lead to blocks and what not under pressure. All true. But still, Scottie has no weakness. If His contemporaries want to catch Scottie now, they must improve their weaknesses without sacrificing their strengths. Because Scotties not going anywhere for a while.

    The next 5-10 years shape up well.

    But after that His coach and caddie aren’t exactly spring chicken like the 25 year old Scottie. Bubba said teddy needed 10 more years that the 2 times masters champ felt he couldn’t provide. Randy smith is about 7o now so maybe 10 more years. But Scottie needs 20-25 more years, if not more. We know what has happened to some of butchs pupils after his retirement. We know what happened to Rory when his coach didn’t travel due to the Rona.
    So something will have to give at some point for Scottie,,,but lucky for him not for a while.

    The putter story is fascinating. We just got the girls brand new Scotties like yesterday. I was worried about adjusting time. But if Scottie can win the masters with a new shaft, they can handle it.
