    Lot of big names.

    Most those guys are cruising along bit by bit adding to their resumes.

    Rory has some interesting quotes saying he thinks 3 wins these days is like incredible right now because of the level of competition. The fact is 3 is big because there is a whole lot of parity or mediocre elite play in golf; as in a bunch of guys not great enough to win more than 3.

    A lot of these guys are amazing but let’s be real, none are at Jack or Tigers level in their primes; heck they are not even at Vijays level; and others in history as well.

    They are all great players but they all lack consistent greatness for one reason or another; many of those reasons are described above by Tom.

    The reason no one wins 5 or more anymore is not because no one is good enough right now. That’s the truth. No one has that extra level of physical, mental and work ethic prowess combined like the truly dominant players in history.

    But the big question mark story from all that name dropping is Fowler. Can he get back? The experts say the more time passes the harder it gets. Rickie needs to get back on track ASAP. It’s reassuring Butch agrees with tillerys work with Ricky.

    Similar to Fowler—but Much less interesting— is Scottie shefflers search for his first win. He is flirting with being pestered with the questions of when he will win; which is always a huge distraction which only makes winning harder.

    Not sure how many players before Scottie have played a Ryder cup without a win on their resume. Ryder cup picks have proven to help struggling tour winners get back to on track; not sure it works quite the same for guys whom have not won yet. Scottie has a brighter spotlight on him now; we will see if he can handle that extra heat as he continues his pursuit for his first pga tour dub.
