He may end up being the greatest ever that bloke - he is awesome - scary awesome

 

Still a long way to go to catch Federer but doing what he's done while Federer and Nadal have been in the picture is extraordinary and he has a few years left yet

Im curious to see if Day can regain his form this year. I believe he has the drive and determination to prepare and repeat a full effort every time he plays.

Jordan Speith

 

"I'd argue Ricky Fowler is the hottest name in golf right now, he is the previous week's winner, he beat all of us, so he is the best player, that's the way I look at it," the Texan said. "I look at it most recent, the rankings look at it in a two-year cycle. For me, I was beat by four guys last week, I need to get better, that's my drive," added Spieth, who stormed up the rankings with victories at last year's Masters and U.S. Open. "I'm not satisfied if I don't have my best stuff week-to-week, even though that is not going to happen. It still leaves me wanting more, so I come into this week trying to really improve my short game from last week as well as maintain my ball striking."

He used to play most of the season but has cut back in recent years - copying Tiger's approach in the hope he would be better focussed on the majors

 

Yes Weetie and since he adopted that policy in early 2011 Scott's performances in majors have improved out of sight.  Eleven top tens in twenty majors from 2011 compared to just four in the 39 prior. He has probably been one of the most consistent performers in major championships since he adopted the 'less is more' policy.

 

I would agree that at sometimes there is a feeling he should play just a little more to prepare himself but you can't argue with the stats in terms of what he has achieved and at the end of it all he will be remembered for how well he did in elite events rather than just PGA Tour events.

 

I think that while he would love to contend in every event that is not always possible and like racehorses, some professionals need more time 'in the paddock' than others between campaigns to recharge the batteries. I also think players typically (not always) need a tournament or two to reach their best form after a break. Again it is a case by case thing.  

 

Playing the Sony might also have had something to do with keeping his minimum number of events in hand and having played well there previously it is obviously a tournament and course he enjoyed.

 

I think in his 17th year as a professional he has it worked out what best suits him.

I was one of those that believe Adam doesn't play enough but get your point about him having a choice.  

 

I may have missed it, but did Adam miss the cut at the Singapore Open??   I just saw the 3rd round and he wasn't on the current board of players still playing.

Thanks Bruce.    I was watching a pre-event promotion for the event on Fox last week.   As he was a past winner there was quite a bit with him talking it up and how he is looking forward to playing there this week.    Obviously his "tight schedule" was too full.   ;-))
