No Tour Title But Gold Medal Gets Schauffele In The 'Aloha' Spirit - Dog Leg News

About the author

Tom Edrington

Tom Edrington spent the first 10 years of his misguided youth as a sports writer for the Tampa Tribune. His career brought him face to face with many of sports greatest stars -- Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Muhammad Ali, Don Shula, countless Hall of Fame NFL stars, more PGA Tour players than he can count. In 1980 he was honored by the Golf Writers Association of America for writing the best news story that year, his coverage of Jack Nicklaus' U.S. Open victory at Baltusrol. Today, 36 years later, golf is still a great part of his life, thanks to competitive playing days and the wonderful people he has met on this fabulous journey.

    It’s very possible the guy without a win (on tour) wins

        You are probably right but I can think of a few names to eliminate:
        some of the rookies (to Kapalua) —Maybe not Sam.
        guys with weak records in Maui.
        And guys who may have a tough time walking the hills.

        Then there are guys like JT, Jordan, Xander, Reed, and English, who have won along with other great finishes in Maui. Add Rahm and Hideki with their previous runner up finishes and it’s hard to see someone outside that list winning in Kapalua this year.

        But To Toms point thou, guys like Cantlay, Berger, finau, bryson, Hovland, kokrak, Leish, Phil, Gooch and Higgo (which together sound like a new purse brand) and of course Morikawa are tough to bet against these days.

        It’s gonna be fun.

          I actually immediately regretted not including Cam In this list of potential winners.
