FIVE PLAYERS to FADE
The Englishman pops up on the leaderboard about once a month and that’s not enough for the current Gold Medalist, who is still ranked in the top 15 despite his erratic play. Maybe his back is still bothering him or may be he’s not getting the little white ball in the hole. Clearly, Rosey’s game is not in good form. He recently admitted that he’s not swinging correctly to avoid pain in his back. RED FLAG ALERT!
I’m a big Patrick Reed fan but I don’t like what I see from him right now. He’s putting too much pressure on himself to play well and earn a spot on the President’s Cup team and in the process is playing very average golf. He used to free wheel it - a style I love to watch - but now looks like he’s thinking way too much and the results are not that great.
He’s been around a long, long time and what could have been for Westwood if not for Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Still with no majors on his resume, the Englishman days are numbered as his game continues to decline. Leave Westy on the bench!
He’s still a kid and I’ve followed his career very carefully. The young Englishman plays well in Europe, but rarely plays well on the PGA Tour. He’s a few years away from making a splash in a major championship. He needs the right type of course, in the right conditions to contend and this week’s PGA Championship setup is not it.
Si Woo Kim
Kim shocked the world when he won the PLAYERS Championship in May, but since that epic win, the young Korean has struggled to find a consistent game with a mixed bag of low finishes and missed cuts. Wait another week. He cannot be trusted to play well at this week’s PGA Championship. A missed cut is lurking!
The PGA Championship is scheduled to start August 10-13, 2017 at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. TNT and CBS will televise the event.
