I think in the next few years the childless ones will come out on top.

Speith
Rory
Fowler

Im still waiting for patty reed to break the top 5

So far in 2016
Rory is almost 30y longer off the tee - 283 bs 311
Driving accuracy is almost a dead heat with Jordan less than a % ahead - both 60%
Jordan is slightly in front on the strokes gained tee to green - 2.39 vs 2.38
But Jordan is 3 shots better putting - 1.9 vs minus 1.1


Top really to use 16 figures. Have you got the same for 15?

Yeah I think we underestimate Days putting and do the opposite with Speith. They are both great putters. Looks like jd needs to fix his iron play.

I reckon for consistency, and being able to win on all sorts of courses, and under all sorts of conditions, then you simply can't go past Spieth.

 

Rory's putting is streaky and is his weak point I reckon, when it's on its enough to win him titles, but it's often missing, and its been like that for a few years now.

 

Day is also pretty consistent at the moment, but he's still behind Spieth in terms of being able to get it done when it really counts.

 

Spieth has won at times, showing complete domination over classy fields, and has hit scores under trying conditions that no-one has come anywhere near close to ........ so for mine, he is well ahead of the other two now.

I think Jason's form was down for a while there but he definitely needs to improve his consistency with approaches. Given how good his putting is if he can get closer with the tee to green stats that will be a huge step up.

I think Gaz that with Jason it remains to be seen whether he can maintain the form he had towards the end of the year over years. If he can - and that includes a significantly improved mentality for winning - then I really believe he can dominate because he has the combination of length off the tee, high irons and great putting that we saw with Tiger and that I read about with Jack.

But ...
I'm a fanboy so I'm biased as!
And doing it for a few months is very different to doing it over a number of whole seasons

Rory is streaky and when he fires he is the best golfer on the planet at that time. But his off streaks are still top 10 performances so he has proven how good he is.

Jordan is so young to have already shown us the sort of consistency that could bag him a motza of majors. At the moment he is the best of the three - but one year doesn't make a career so it will be interesting to watch him this year. Personally I think he can maintain and build on what he has and if he does he could be number one for a very long time.

One thing about golf though is that it is rewarding to the streaky player because if you win a lot it doesn't matter so much if your off weeks are a bit crappy. So it could play out so many ways.


More than anything I hope all three are on their games for the next few years and we get to watch a new legend of three born in golf.

As someone has already mentioned, what do you mean by best?

 

IF you mean - who wins if they all play their best game, then probably Rory

But if you, who wins most over the course of a year when you throw in the B and C games, then at this point, clearly Speith.

 

 

Same argument was had between Norman and Faldo.  On peak form, Norman was miles ahead, but then the next day he would explode and so Faldo won three times as many majors

Norman had 331 weeks as No 1 Faldo 97

 

Tiger 683!

 

Does the win at all cost approach the difference?

I think if all 3 play their very best golf - Rory is well ahead of the other two.
Good points about consistency though, Spieth does seem to have that at the moment. That being said, other than when Rory changed over to Nike clubs/dumped Wozniacki, he has never really had any extended slump. His poor golf still usually sees him around the top 10 which is pretty impressive.

Day doesn't have the runs on the board over an extended period of time to even be in the same conversation yet.
