Personally speaking, it's not for me.
Even without the new format, I was never a big fan of match play.
For those of you having a punt, I wish you every success. But I will be keeping my powder dry until Texas.

Great reply from DJ
Report johnnythebull March 25, 2017 10:30 PM GMT
how well has tanihara played!
could well give DJ more of a fight than choker noren
Rahm has been hugely impressive
up against my only man left..billy the bottler
who i really can't see stopping him
Report therhino March 25, 2017 10:34 PM GMT
Me neither Johnny. Haas was my only green left, greened out now. Feel pretty unlucky he has come this far and will in all liklihood have to go through the Rahm/DJ combo. Fair play if he does but have to green out, don't think he has the required firepower. They would have to both be below their best but they're walking on water.
Report lewisham ranger March 25, 2017 10:48 PM GMT
haas is very sensible and wily though so it would be dangerous to underestimate him.

rahm is continuing to impress. him and dj look like the two best players in the world right at this moment. I'd wager that rahm will get to number one in the world within the next could of years and win multiple majors given that he hits it incredibly long and is a fantastic putter as well. He's also got that winning look about him as well.

btw interesting question, who do you think will finish their career with more majors, spieth or rahm? right now I'd be tempted to say rahm...

Ranger you are often tipping people to win multiple majors you do realise that there are only four majors each year and of the current bunch of pros only Tiger, Phil, Vijay, Ernie, Padraig and Rory have managed to win more than 2. In fact in the history of the game only 44 men have made it to three majors!
Report lewisham ranger March 26, 2017 1:28 PM BST
yeah good point although I do think rahm is a bit special.. I would rate him above Matsuyama and Thomas.

Harder and harder to win majors and I guess we'll never see anyone reaching the figures of tiger and jack again Crazy
Report Total Bosman March 26, 2017 2:08 PM BST
It's hard to make too many bold predictions because a lot can go wrong in the golf game at any given moment.  But on the evidence we're seeing I'd say Rahm looks like he'll be up there in a top 3 with DJ and Rory soon enough.
Report Total Bosman March 26, 2017 2:12 PM BST
Kind of incredible that he's 10 years younger than DJ.  Stand them side by side I don't think I could even tell who was younger.  If he was a Nigerian footballer they'd be double-checking the birth certificate.
Report dlarssonf March 26, 2017 2:31 PM BST
Thomas is vastly over rated in my opinion , he is going to be a money machine but can't have him winning any of the games big 4 prizes , I have him down as a complete bottler
Report Total Bosman March 26, 2017 3:04 PM BST
Agree, Thomas not yet in the same class as the other top names.  If you look at his 4 wins, 3 have been in reduced fields, none on continental US, and all in absolute birdie fests.  Until he beats a proper field on a proper course he's proven nothing.
Report Total Bosman March 26, 2017 3:22 PM BST
Whoever plays DJ later should just concede the first and tee off on the second.
Report lewisham ranger March 26, 2017 3:40 PM BST
is there a chance that dj could win this week, win next week and then win at the masters for five in a row?

We haven't seen anything like this since tiger at his peak.
Report lewisham ranger March 26, 2017 3:45 PM BST
Calling Thomas a complete bottler seems quite harsh, otherwise he would hardly win on the tour at all and would be in the same category as Kevin Na, Delaet, Kuchar and other supreme chokers.

Guys young give him time, he's a supreme talent and will win majors. even multiple ones Wink

reminds me of rory when he went on a run about 2 and half years ago. just started winning everything and it seemed like he was blessed and could do no wrong, in those cases even the tight situations work out for you.

can't condemn a man on the basis of one match johnny against head and shoulders the best player in the world right now.

If you had offered Rahm a pga tour win, a near top ten ranking and a runner up in the WGC matchplay before the season he'd have bitten your arm off.

Think he can be pretty pleased with his progress.
