Donald? I think Luke is great and all, and he's on my fantasy team, but he's been abysmal this season. Just awful.
The other 3 are obviously all great golfers, but this is a classic case of "what have you done for me lately?" Rose and Scott have one major each. Phil is obviously fantastic, but he does tend to disappear for long stretches. Tiger is so much more consistent.
Tiger obviously isn't as good as he once was, but he's still the best golfer in the world and the stats back that up. It's only a matter of time before he wins another major.
All that being said, and being a big fan of tiger on the course (can't stand him off the course), it's still quite amazing to me how he's performing on the weekend in majors recently. It's really hard to get used to. I do wonder if he happens to pull one off in the near future if he'll gone on a nice little run. Similar to what Duval did once he finally one for the first time.
