i hope Rory can stay healthy. He's fun to watch. I'd like to see him and Rickie square off on Sundays. And Tiger... glad to have him back.

He actually helps out our kicker with some of the mental side of things. Which is useful because old boy seems to miss a decent bit  <_>

Bold prediction.  Quick trivia question, when (what year) was the last time that happened.   No googling allowed  :D

I think it's Spieth at the end of the year but I have a feeling that Justin Rose might be a close 2nd place.

 

Spieth is such a clutch putter that i think he is going to keep getting better and better.

If Rory stays healthy and keeps his head on straight...........................

 

I've always thought he's the most talented player on tour, but his head and injuries keep him from greatness. That said, I will always pull for Jason Day.

2003?

Great guess ans I thought that was it as well when I asked the question. As John Feinstein wrote a book about it. However when I went to look it up to confirm that was indeed the answer, imagine my surprise when I saw it was just done two years ago (2016) Danny Willett, Dustin Johnson, Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker. How soon we forget. Ha

 

But those are the only two times it's happened.

 

So it is a bold prediction indeed!!

Yep!  Quickly forgot!!  But what I remembered was that in 2003, the majors were all won by "non-bombers".  

 

I'm making the prediction because there are so many good players that could be on the verge of winning a major;

Matt Kuchar

Jon Rahm

Rickie Fowler

Hideki Matsuyama

Tommy Fleetwood

Tyrrell Hatton

Daniel Berger

Patrick Cantley

 

EDIT:  Forgot about Marc Leishman.  Could be his year.

 

and of course, there is always the occasional Danny Willett, Mike Wier, Shawn Micheel, Ben Curtis, Todd Hamilton, and Y.E Yang's of the world.

I cast a vote for Jordan Spieth.  He has a drive and determination unlike anything we have seen since Tiger came onto the scene.  He also has plenty of added motivation given the 2017 Justin Thomas had.

I think Tommy Fleetwood is going to surprise a lot of people this year. During a post round interview at the Hero, he shared his plans for a robust 2018 PGA Tour playing schedule. If he continues to play well, the more heavily weighted US events should make it much easier for him to climb the rankings ladder. He's also my '18 Masters pick.

Mr. Fleetwood is one of my favorites as well. I like his swing. Him and Rickie can run the table for the foreseeable future and I'd be happy with that.

He's been saying he's Top 5 in the world... Of course he'll finally live-up to this!

 

Or Poulter...

Fleetwood does have a good move!

 

Alex Noren, Thomas Pieters and Matthew Fitzpatrick are 3 that most Americans forget about as well that have nice swings and can really play. All those guys seem to be locks over the next 10-15 years.
