After the successful Luke Donald and Tiger Woods Express I bring you the next Express to the world's summit.

Collin Morikawa

Cracked the top 50 in just twenty events. Already has a win - yet to miss a cut as a pro and heading right to the top!

What's your timeline mighty?

He's undoubtedly a great ball striker.  Putting has been a bit ropey so far...will be interesting to see if that improves or will he be Hideki Mk II?
Report Total Bosman February 23, 2020 6:11 PM GMT
I'm not sure I see a future number 1 just yet - you've got your boom or bust guys like Brooks or JT who can be awful or brilliant but get trophies on the brilliant weeks, and you have your steady guys like Cantlay who all but guarantee a good finish and a big cheque but maybe don't have enough trophies in the cabinet, and Morikawa strikes me at the moment as more of a Cantlay type.  His results are highly impressive since turning pro but would like to see how he fares properly in contention for a big one before declaring him a contender for the top of the rankings.

By the end of next year Rhino

22 cuts out of 22 as a pro - the second longest active streak. Mighty impressive since he will be getting his first look at the majority of these tracks.

Time will tell. Can see him becoming one of the top guys, end of 2021 might be a stretch but you never know. Rahmbo been going for a few years now and hasn't made it there yet.

Another cut made and now the longest active streak on tour - impressive stuff for someone who has been on tour less than a year

Another good week up to 27 in the world now.

Might want to spent a bit of time on the practice putting green this week though.

If you divide his OWGR points by actual events played it comes out to 6.38 which is good enough for world number 5 ahead of DJ.

Kid carries a reputation and expectations of a lot of good judges in the game. No doubt he can strike the ball. But there's a few issues to him becoming #1. Firstly, no-one but no-one strikes a ball like Rory. Secondly, (like Rory) he doesn't convert his good play to the green. Thirdly, the competition with all of these young kids playing with no fear and not being scared of winning is going to be difficult to overcome. Got to agree with Bosman, he likes the dynamism at the moment....but will be interesting to watch.

Choo choo indeed. OWGR point by actual events played now 7.93, which would be number 2 in the world.

Not sure about the tiddlers though, did his best to miss the tap in on 18 to go to the playoff. Making the 24 footer to extend though was great stuff. Some of the shots he hit on Sunday were just glorious.

So many Tiger comparisons getting about at the moment, especially as he has more wins than missed cuts. Then I saw someone post that for 15 years, Tiger had more MAJOR wins than missed cuts. People can chill with the Tiger comparisons.

After his PGA win if you divide his points by actual events played you get 10.7 which would make a clear cut world number 1.

Moving along in the right direction, now OWGR #5

Unreal prediction Mighty. 5 shot lead after 54 holes at Hero, if he closes is number 1. Nostradumus would be impressed.

Cheers Rhino

Was surprised at the turn of events last night thought he would canter to victory!

Still thinks he gets to the number one and that he probably would have done so on time had it not been for the three months lost to the pandemic.
