Seeing how Allenby did a fantastic job in trying to defend his title, I thought it would be interesting to view the different opinions on who out of lonard and allenby was having the better season...

Allenby seems to be in a purple patch right now where he can do no wrong. And to top it off...how about an ace from a friendly kick off a mound... :wink:

I think Lonard is still leading aussie on the PGA money list, and if not mistaken, in the world rankings...but my money would be on Allenby to secure a win (either in US or AUS) by year end. Regardless...am an avid fan of both fellas and would like to see them continue their good runs...both deserve wins soon...

huge congrats must to to Leaney (Royal Perth member...way to go... biggrin.gif) 72 holes with only one bogey...very very impressive...

and can anyone stop Anika?!?! And regardless of sex, her result this year justifies that she be awarded the golfer of the year award...

I believe Robert Allenby tops the money list on the PGA Tour for Australians as well as our best world ranked player (Michael Campbell is Australasia's best).

I believe Peter Lonard is having a better season for the fact that this is his rookie year and is playing courses he has never seen before - no missed cuts says it all.

Anyway I don't care who wins as long as it's an Aussie (or maybe a Kiwi) AND NOT TIGER.

Paul

I guess it really depends on what criteria you use to figure out who is having the better year.

If you're talking merely money earned, then it's got to be Robert Allenby. To date he has made $1,814,817 vs Peter Lonard's $ 1,363,677 (poor fella).

If it's scoring average, then Lonard wins -69.62 vs 70.04

If it's results, Allenby wins. 7 Top 10s from 22 starts (including two 2nds) whereas Lonard has had 4 Top 10s from 20 starts.

I could go on with the stats forever, but ultimately I think both are having great seasons and it's too hard to compare them as one is an experienced PGA Tour player and the other is a rookie.

Lonard is having a better season because his a Rookie, but Allenby is having a top notch season, he will win soon, watch him...

Good win by Leaney, wish I could swing it like him...

Annika's doing what Tigers doing on the PGA Tour...

So...should Anika be awarded Golfer Of The Year 2002??? Or is Tiger a shoo-in...???

Personally, I think Anika should, as she's done so much this year...she's been a more consistent performer, but then again, maybe it's only awarded to male golfers???

I'm not a fan of Anika by the way...Prefer to watch Karrie and SeRi play becoz of their more classical swings...and their more 'down-to-earth' attitude...I think...

Annika should be golfer of the year by a long margin - the results she puts on the board week after week are amazing against quality opposition.

Will she win it - female, not American, female, lower profile, female?

Anyone would think you don't think she'll win it Paul because she's female. :wink:

Maybe I'm misreading you post but that's the impression I got. laugh.gif

Annika -8 wins from 17 starts, including 1 major on LPGA Tour. 2 other victories worldwide.

Tiger -4 wins from 15 starts including 2 majors.

Stats say it's Anikka. And Tiger shot that hack-like 81 at the British Open so he doesn't deserve it. laugh.gif

Hindo, I really hope she does win it but we don't get a vote.

Maybe an iseekgolf poll amongst us would reveal the most worthy?

Hey guys,
Great topic running...and good to see the Annika getting a mention as she is really on fire!

Throw around a few more names and I will add a poll on to the topic if you like?

Ernie Els, Hale Irwin (20 Top 10s from 23 starts).

But really I think it's Tiger vs Annika.

We could keep throwing those names around forever and a day. I would like to see a poll on best player this year, male or female and one for best performed Australasian worldwide.
