Ok so this is hardly a new topic. But after being the nearly man at Whistling Straits, Royal St George’s and Chambers Bay, everyone thought the floodgates would open for DJ once he finally broke his duck at Oakmont. But, now he’s gone and done it again at Shinnecock - failed to close out a major he was in total control of and at a time when he’s world number 1 and at the height of his game.
There’s no denying his talent. The guy’s won 19 times on Tour and is a sure fire Hall of Famer. But he’ll be 34 next week and has 1 major despite all that possibility. Rory has 4 times as many and is 5 years younger than him. Spieth has 3 times as many and nearly 10 years younger. Now Brooks has twice as many.
I like DJ but I just think that, despite all the hyperbole around his game and how far he hits it and how amazing he is, it’s not backed up by the results that should matter.
He’s got the biggest cock on campus but he can’t get it up when the hot girl comes round and strips in front of him.
