I’m REALLY happy JT won, especially since he missed-out vs Morikawa, then because Bones was on the bag, and finally I’m just not a Koepka fan at all. JT is a good dude!

Good comeback for JT after his really bad loss. Maybe Bones w his experience helped keep JT on track.
Rickies fading on Sunday is a shame, something is going on.
I don’t have a problem w Koepka at all but I can see how he could irritate people.
Rahmbo didn’t last long at #1. Hrs the Guy who irritates me.

Not surprised but just did not see that coming.  JT joins some folks who breathe rarified air with this win.

Matthew Fitzpatrick played very well at the Memorial with Bones on the bag.  I think JT will also do well with Bones, but I hate to put a hex on him by making him my pick.  

I think I'll pick Patrick Reed.

About Bones...  I'm thinking that since his knees are healthy again, he might want to dump broadcasting and get back to what he loves.  Anyone need a good caddie??  Oh, that's right!  Tony Finau.  

I wanted to pick JT because of Bones, but I'm glad I didn't hex him with my pick.  Nice win for JT.

I’m not a huge JT fan but it was a resilient win. It’s very exciting to have so many good players vying for the number 1 spot. The stretch run to this season could be epic.

Why can’t Rickie hold-on? He gets close, then fades in his final rounds. Seems so odd that he can’t finish the job.

No kidding, at some point when is it no longer a coincidence? I think Faldo said when you're making a swing change the biggest test of your trust in the change is going to be when you're in contention on a Sunday. Must be that he's still got a bit to go until he's comfortable.

Boy, quite a weekend of takeaways for me though! Great to see Brooksie back in contention, but WOW that tee shot on 18 was a shocker. Felt like he was gonna pull away around 15-16, then 17 and 18 just kinda fell off. But he's got to be back in conversations about contending now that we've got some big tourneys coming up.

And boy oh boy, I used to think Bryson just got a bad rap a few months ago, but he's quickly becoming my least favorite guy on tour. Like hey, I'm pretty forgiving of getting frustrated on the course. I get frustrated and I have absolutely nothing on the line, let alone millions of dollars. But repeated conversations with rules officials talking to them like they're complete fools? And complaining about the course or lie or wind or bad bounce etc etc after every bad shot? I mean bad breaks happen, but sorry to tell ya bud, sometimes you just make bad swings.

There is a lot of similarity between what Rickie is doing now and Phil prior to 2004.  Phil had this dark cloud following him around that he couldn't win big events, especially majors.  He was 33 years old (soon to be 34 in June) when he won the Masters in 2004.  The key difference is, Phil had won 22 times between 1991 and 2004 prior to his breakthrough at the Masters.  Rickie hasn't shown nearly as much propensity for closing out wins.  He has 9 wins in 11 seasons but one of those is Tiger's limited field event and another is on the Asian Tour.  

I personally believe Rickie has the game to win the biggest events.  I'm just not certain he has the killer instinct to get it done.  Time will surely tell.

Good comparison I think. It’s also getting tougher to win and especially now. The fields are deep every week. They are about to get deeper, too.

I think the better comparison for Rickie is Sergio Garcia: when Rickie finally wins one, and I believe he will win 1, just like Sergio, it’ll be late into his career. Around 20 wins and 1 major is what I figure for Rickie. To be fair though, he’s a better putter than Phil or Sergio. And I hope he wins more

You are absolutely correct.  Something I failed to mention.  The list of guys capable of winning any given week on Tour is much deeper now that it was in the 90's.  Heck, there are guys on KFT that can win on the PGA Tour right now.  Golf has never been deeper at the highest levels of the game.  That is the "Tiger effect" and it's not going to slow down anytime soon.

In my opinion, Rickie and Sergio are very comparable from a statistical standpoint but not a mental standpoint.  The overwhelming difference is temperament.  Sergio can be a powder keg which often leads to his own demise.  Rickie has shown no such signs.  Although, it's very possible the mental aspect could be holding him back if he doesn't have that killer instinct.
