Hall of Famer
- Feb 13, 2011
You can add Jordan Spieth and Jason Day to that list Freethinker. The way Jordan Spieth started, I really thought he would win at least 10-12 majors. He'll be fortunate to win any more Majors after almost winning all four in 2015 and The 2017 Open Championship. I'll never understand why Spieth changed his swing. He's never been right since. The Masters sets up the best of any for Spieth but he can't even make the cut. The US Open will probably destroy him this year if he doesn't get his act together. Day has been a little unfortunate in that he's battled the injury bug. Although he's won at least one tournament over a 13-14 year career, DJ is another puzzler. He seems to have all the tools be an easy 10 Major winner, but I guess his laid- back attitude doesn't help him. I'm not sure why none of these players could continue their winning ways over long periods of time. I've always given credit where it's due, and Tiger Woods deserves to be said of him; that he is the ultimate competitor. I'm not sure any of these guys wanted it as bad as Woods.I hope Scheffler is the rare young player to get better after a some immediate early success. The sport would benefit to have a genuine star. No disrespect to DJ, Rory, DeChambeau or Koepka but they just haven’t been great or even consistent for years at a time.
As for Scheffler, I hope he's the next great player, but the odds say no. The Bobby Jones's, the Hagen's the Hogan's, the Nicklaus's, and the Woods' only come around so often. We can only guess who will be the next All-Time great.
