I’m tempted by Shipnuck’s point but two majors still seems like a trump card to me. Not sure what the current conversion rate is — didn’t we once ask pros if they’d rather have ten wins versus one major? — but two big ones outweigh anything Bryson can do especially given the Tour Championship is a field of just 30 players. Bryson may end up with the more lucrative year though if he can grab hold of that FedEx cash.
Given all the whispers one hears on the driving range that seems about right. I think cheating can take many subtle forms. Taking bad drops a la Dahmen vs. Kang seems like the easiest way to get an edge and everyone is looking for an edge. But the 100% number made me laugh out loud.
After failing to play his way into the Tour Championship Jordan Spieth now faces a punishment from the PGA Tour. His penancea $20k fine and/or a three-tournament suspension. Because Spieth didn’t qualify for East Lake he will violate the PGA Tour’s scheduling rule that mandates Tour members either play a new tournament (one they haven’t played in four years) or tee it up in 25-plus events. Spieth has done neither in the 2017-18 season.
