The new season is already under way so its time for a new thread.
Here's my take on how everyone is going to play this year:
The 2016 POY won the US Open despite the USGA trying to screw him over an mess with his head. That's the benefit of destroying all of the brain cells that cause nerves. Look for him to continue to play great and get another major in 2017. I know I'm looking forward to seeing Paulina's ass every time he collects a trophy.
Rory came on strong at the end of 2016 winning the Fed Ex Cup. No one actually cares about the Fed Ex Cup, but winning it is better than not winning it. 2017 is the year he claims his first Masters. Willet won't be happy to no longer be the reigning champion, but he will take solace in the fact that he won't have to put a jacket on an American.
The current number 1 player in the world is going to have a tough year. Just too hard a swing and too many injuries to keep it up. Its a shame because of how much talent he has, but I think its all downhill from here.
After an historic 2015 Spieth had what seemed like an off year in 2016 but was actually pretty damned good. I don't think he'll have another season like 2015, but look for him to get a couple wins in 2017 and maybe bink another major. The Masters blow up was bad, but there isn't going to be lasting damage. The real question is whether this is the year he loses what's left of his hair.
High off his Ryder Cup performance, Patrick Reed will finally get to top 5 in the world.
I'm struggling with this one. Justin notched his first win, but some people are still looking for him to be one of the best in the world. I don't know what is going to happen, but I think this is the year we find out whether he is going to become Jordan Spieth or Charles Howell III.
Bubba will continue to be a whiny *****. Next.
This will be the breakout year for Berger. 2 wins coming his way.
I don't know why this guy is holding a propeller, and there is no way I can spell his name. He's a 3 time All American and former #1 amateur in the world. Ollie S is going to have a huge year and take a lot of people by surprise. He's my sleeper pick for 2017.
He won't win anything, but Phil will make a lot of money, hit a lot of shots out of concession areas and porta-potties, and will get picked for the President's Cup. There will also be no shortage of lol Phil moments as usual.
Who knows if Tiger will even tee it up this year. Is he still injured? Does he have the chipping yips? Has he lost his motivation? At this point I'm not even sure I still care.
