And the question raised by Alan Shipnuck during his “Anonymous European Pro Survey,” was who would you rather have dinner with Tiger or Phil?
Picking Tiger’s brain
I’d agree with anonymous, “I’d like to pick Tiger’s brain on how he overcame his suffering. That could really help me.” And by the way 73% of them think Tiger will win another major.
I also agree when it’s reported that it was Bryson DeChambeau they found the most irritating and not Patrick Reed
European tour - pros and cons
WHICH TOUR IS MORE FUN TO PLAY?
European Tour: 88%
PGA Tour: 12%
“[PGA Tour] You know what’s fun? Making three times the money.”
“[Euro Tour] It’s less serious. The PGA Tour is big business.”
And For sure Brooks Koepka would agree with the following.
WHAT’S A MORE VALUABLE EXPERIENCE FOR A YOUNG PLAYER: A YEAR ON THE EURO TOUR OR A YEAR ON THE WEB.COM?
Euro Tour: 82% Web.com 3% Unsure: 15%
Suffice to say...
They got it wrong. It has to be Monty.
BEST EUROPEAN PLAYER WITHOUT A MAJOR?
Tommy Fleetwood: 56%
Lee Westwood: 26%
Jon Rahm: 9%
Colin Montgomerie: 6%
Alex Noren: 3%
On the subject of Rory
“Not Rory,” was the response when asked, IF EUROPE’S RYDER CUP HOPES CAME DOWN TO AN EIGHT-FOOT PUTT, WHO WOULD YOU WANT TAKING THE PUTT?
Nevertheless, 97% think Rory will win another major and “If he gets out of his own way.”
“I wish I could caddie for him at Augusta.” And then there’s this thought, “He’s trying too hard.”
