@52:Please refer yourself to #51!!
Never bought into Luke Donald being world number one but Rory deserved it without a doubt and lets hope he comes out of the doldrums quickly.dont forget it takes a lot to win majors by a wide margin
How can you possibly say McIlroy and Donald have been modest this season? McIlroy has grabbed the Nike dollar and capitulated World No 1 to Woods in a shocking manner. He hardly plays and when he does he has been very poor. As for Donald, he seems like he has other things on his mind, his driving has been poor and his short game has been shoddy. Too wealthy to care? I hope not..
52.Tiger is the only one worth watchingIf he is not in contention its incredibly boringLike him or loath him he is great to watch and he does not care what you or anyone else thinks its a business to him at the expense of anyone else.A bit like Gary Player
Why all the wishes for a European to win? Its not the Ryder Cup. I dont care where the winner is from if he's a non British player as long as its not Woods, if only to annoy all the Tiger 'lovers' on these posts.
@45You are an idiot
Just to change the threadWhy is Westwood not getting Billy Foster back on the bag.Its plain to see he is useless without him and it makes no sense at all.He held the job open for him for 6 months (big wow)Show some loyalty Westwood but at the worst get him back for your own sake and maybe you can still win a major.(Without Billy)No chance
Well done to Russell Knox in getting through the US Open sectional quals.BBC...the same report carries the deathless myth that Chris Doak qualified for the same tourney 'at Wentworth'. Oh yeah, same hapless reporting and slipshod editing, give the boy and the venue some credit, try Walton Heath!!. No wonder you are losing screen time and traction with the golfing public.
I think a large amount of Rory's problem is discipline. What I mean by this is that, with JP on the bag Rory does what he likes. I think it is time for Rory to get someone who can stand up to him and say that is the wrong club or wrong shot. I don't want to put anyone out of work or anyone in but if I was Rory I would give Billy Foster a call. For me he is the best man for the job.
If you want completely predictable results, please watch tennis or any team game where financial backing counts for the most. Having attended five US Opens in the 1980s, I think it is the most improved men's major. However, it is not always won by the most talented player, often it requires patience more than any other attribute, and that may count against the younger players.
I think not peaking too early in the season is a good thing. That way there will be less pressure on them going in to the event. Good luck lads.
What awful sport is this, it isnt even in the Olympics, fail
Great article on the Golf Channel website (http://www.golfchannel.com/news/jason-sobel/woods-vs-mcilroy-rivalry-hasnt-taken-off/). If you read it then you'll realise the old saying "form is temporary, class is permamnent".If Rory struggles JP will be let go, this will complete the change from old life to new - according to Jason Sobel.GMac or Manny are EU's best hope for US Open.
What McDowell lacks in ability he makes up in determination and a will to win. McIlroy has all the ability but lacks focus. These are the only two currently that have a chance. The rest hyped by our media just don't have the mental capacity of a Faldo type. If the likes of Donald, Westwood and Garcia had the determination and will to win McD/Faldo has they might all have a Major by now.
@40 G-Mac is possibly the best putter I've seen under presssure. Certainly from 10-12 ft.
Time is passing quicklly now westwood poulter donald etc and it will now be rory gmac and maybe justin rose with manassero coming through but with tiger back to something like his best with his accuracy off the tee getting impressive he only has to put well to be a big contender in the us open.Think adam scott will do well again too
