My picks at the outset of the tournament were Rory, Jason Day, BVP, and Gary Woodland.
Rory played well Thursday and Friday, but sort of fell apart over the weekend. I would say he’s very likely to get a jacket one of these years, but of course we thought the same about Greg Norman.
Jason Day shot a 76 on Thursday and withdrew on Friday. Not sure what that’s all about.
Bo Van Pelt were a couple of strokes above par for each round through Saturday, but made the cut and then went on to shoot a 64 on Sunday to finish T17.
Gary was about Even going into the weekend, but shot an 85 on Saturday and then withdrew.
So, as predicted, I sucked. Even worse, I seem to have the power to make perfectly healthy golfers have to withdraw from a major tournament.
Keep’em in the short stuff.
