2020 Season Predictions

Recommended Posts

So we're into the 2020 campaign and it is time for some predictions. 

Will Jordan Speith win an event?

Will Tiger win another major?

Will Brooks 3-peat the PGA Championship?

Will Rhambo slam a club into the turf?

Will a non US player win The Open?

Who are you thinking is going to have a breakout season?

Who will win the FedEx Cup?

My answers; no, no, no, yes, yes, Joaquin Niemann, Justin Thomas.

What are your predictions to these and other questions for the 2020 season?

Responses to the questions posed.

  • Spieth will continue to struggle until he gets back to playing with feel and stops chasing distance. 
  • Tiger will contend in Augusta but struggle everywhere else.  I don't think he gets #16, ever. 
  • A Major at Harding Park will be interesting.  The San Francisco Bay area will be cool and damp in May.  The odds are certainly against a three-peat for Brooks but I wouldn't count him out.  I think a PGA at Harding Park sets up well for someone like Viktor Hovland or Patrick Cantlay.
  • Rahm will take care of that before the end of the West Coast swing!
  • Royal St. George's traditionally favors the underdog.  I expect to see a surprise winner there.
  • Lanto Griffin
  • I couldn't care less!!!!!

I think 2020 will be remembered for the emergence of the younger crowd.  Hovland, Niemann, Wolff, Morikawa, Wise, etc. will win a bunch of tournaments.

I hate to be a stick in the mud but... But I don't really care. Sure I'll watch tournaments and such during the season. I'm only focused on my game and how I fare this next year. The 3-Club Tour has lost its luster for me.

Man, I spend more time looking at my phone than watching tournaments.... They’ve become so boring unless their a major or Ryder Cup. I just don’t really watch much anymore. Maybe it’s because there aren’t any names I recognize is a lot of these tournaments lately.

Yea, I agree, the "3 Club Tour" has changed the game from a viewing perspective - and not for the better.  Still, I really enjoy watching the various tours and televised events. Of course some of this is because the vast majority of other TV shows are an absolute assault to the cranium.

The CJ Cup has plenty of big names.  Last years shootout between Woodland and Koepka was fun.

I want to see new kids and underdogs. Give me the Cameron Champs and Collin Morikawas of the Tour.

I want to see Lee Westwood win the Open. I want to see Xander win his first major.

I also predict that I will miss out on the 2021 Masters Lottery 🤣

Tiger will win another Major.

All the rest can hit driver /wedge and fight it out.... I don't care. I would like to see Jason Day be competitive this year.... I just like the guy.

If I'm not watching my lad Bryson, I've really enjoyed the LPGA and LET for this reason. Even the European tour is better.

Rickie will finally get his due this year. 


Just have to take the shovels out of the sand at Augusta...

I usually only watch the majors and periodically check the leaderboard for some other "big" events.

I'd like to see Rickie win a major and Brooks add another. Can probably guarantee Couples shoots even par first round of the Masters and Tiger contends. Would like to see Rory win.

Also %100 Rahm destroys some turf in anger, but that's just fiery competitive spirit?

I sure hope so. Other than that I won’t try to predict, I never thought Tiger would win at Augusta again but he did. Rory’s back, Speith isn’t. Thomas could take it all. Interesting no one chooses DJ to win these days. I’m honestly happy to see anyone play well and win except Garcia or DeChambeau.

Usually around this time of year I start to pick the fellas I’m going to follow for the next season.

 

For 2020, I now have Rahmbo with the season to remember.  I just have a good feeling that he will break through and win a big one this year. 

Number 2 on my list is Gary Woodland.  He will get it done in a non Major this year, and maybe a few top 5’s in the Majors.

Number 3 or 1 rather would be Big Cat winning a major.  I really hope he wins a few this year and get back to Number 1.

I would be really surprised if Justin Spieth wins again.  4 rounds seems to be a real struggle for him. 

 

Watching Tiger in last years Masters, the event in Japan he won, and the President's Cup, I don't see how anybody can say he won't win again or win a major.  he is hitting his driver like never before, his irons are spot on (best I've ever seen), and he can putt.  I have a feeling he has several wins of some sort in him this year and the youngsters of today will be in complete awe of his ability.

I'd agree - Speith looks lost and Tiger's on his game. I'm still hoping for Rickie and anyone else except Rhombo (sorry @Shankster) or Sergio.

Tiger will be up and down again depending upon his health.  If nothing else, he'll make it interesting in a couple big events.

Hovland will be a top-ten machine, but he won't win this year.  It'll take him another year or so because... putting.

I'll watch even less televised golf, as my goal is to Play More Golf, not Watch More Golf.  But I'll watch the last hour of just about all tournaments on the DVR late on Sunday nights.  I want to watch more LPGA golf, because they play the tees I play and they can shoot in the 60s while I struggle to break 80 consistently.  And they hit the coolest long approaches into greens.
