More meltdowns likely this week ,Rory decides to play his first in usa this year,after opening here last year with a super 63 he had his own little meltdown in rd4 with a 74 including a splash on 16 to lose a playoff to Henley ,4 I've backed at big looking odds are rose,reed,laymen and Jacobsen ,with Thompson winning the year before Henley seems to get the shock winner perhaps,in Jo'burg can't arque with the fav coatzee on at 14 and also at bigger odds slattery and Johan edfors ,top 10 etc ,gl

Daniel Berger a former teammate of Koepka's at Florida State, the Tour rookie has made seven of 10 cuts this season.
Two of his last three starts have been T-10. Watch out for a big moment here from the 21-year-old.
It’s an eight-minute drive from his couch to PGA National.
Berger isn’t far behind Koepka, ranking 10th at 304.6 yards and was runner-up at Copperhead.

Callit , a review of Reeds bottle required....?

I wouldn't think so. A sample size of one is of no relevance to anything. He has proved he can convert winning opportunities at a high rate. That rate remains high after today. He just didn't play too well today, yet hung in there until the last few holes. Backers would be disappointed, but I would not even consider questioning  his bottle.

People like Poulter, they are a different scenario. Sample size fairly large there. Conversion rate very low.
Report workrider March 2, 2015 5:25 PM GMT
Last couple of holes last night , he seemed to become ragged and got lucky with a couple of chips imo , today he again comes to the fore ,and guess what...Maybe hes not the player you think , not saying he wont do the business in future , just seemed to lose focus where it mattered last couple of days...
Report callitasucit March 2, 2015 5:33 PM GMT
There is no player out there though that hasn't fuc ked a tournament away. Looking at the bigger picture, Reed has closed out very successfully.

How many tournaments has Rory lost from a similar position? DJ, Stenson, Rose, Phil, Bubba, Fowler, Day, even the odd blip from Tiger......Reeds conversion rate suggests he will close the deal more frequently than most. Being human suggests he will also lose a couple.

I don't say he is better than any of them listed above, but he seems to have the priceless ability of being pretty damn good at closing the deal.

If Westwood had his bottle, he would be a multiple major winner. As POD said before, consistency is the most over rated thing in golf. Dead right. Give me a winner anyday.

Wondered at that myself , by purpose . Lots of those who bet the threes on Padraig must have been distraught at that shot , the last thing you do is hit water , there is no way back ( unless your name is Bill Haas).
Report wildmanfromborneo March 3, 2015 10:21 AM GMT
There was a way back and he found it.

'twas the same in Carnoustie,twice he found water on the final hole but managed a brilliant up and down followed by four perfectly played extra holes.

He was and probably still is the best back nine on the last day player you will ever see.

It didn't really 'appear' that that was the case though. Just because some jealous, limited waster comes out with it, doesn't mean it should be presented as even close to a possibility.

I'm not saying categorically that he has never taken anything, I cant know that. But just because some gob sh1te says it, shouldn't in my mind lead one to think that...'It appears now the worlds greatest golfer needed some help in those major victories'.
