    Say what you like about Davis, this is a great event in an eye candy location. This is a great week in golf between the Euro and Ladies tours finales and this great Pga tour event.
    All the contenders played great, including the great Todd, who unfortunately got derailed a bit there. Munoz is a Latin golfing legend in the making. Webb continues to validate a great career. And the winner Duncan is a nice reminder shorter hitters can still be pga Tour winners…if they can putt in the clutch baby.

      Good friend of mine a while back came up with a great Davis line: I asked him what he’d been up to he responded: “Today I went somewhere Davis Love III will never have to go — the cardiologist!”……that’s in reference to the long-standing belief that DLIII didn’t have much heart in his prime…..tons of talent and just one major to show……not much heart in that guy and I’m not alone in that opinion

        There’s a lack of fire for sure. To be fair, Davis was a victim of the Tiger era.
        But imo winning multiple majors requires better putting than Davis ever produced. This is similar to Lexi and Wie, who have an even harder time against superior LPgA putters. I do believe women on tour generally putt better than the men, most men rely on superior ball striking.
        To win you gotta putt for dough. It amazing how many tour players rarely come close to great putting.

          If you ask those who cover both, the men have SUPERIOR short games to the women, not even close….that’s a myth that been floating for decades — that the women are better chippers and putters….nope, not even close.
