Who says pro golf needs a jump-start?The past two Open Championships have been two of the most memorable ever, as was the 2017 Masters. This year’s Ryder Cup is one of the most hotly-anticipated ever due to two teams that are in the discussion for the best ever produced under both flags. There’s a legitimate ensemble cast of great players: from phenoms under 25, to those 27-32 who need to really cement their legacy in the next few years, some wily old foxes either side of 40 who have a way of getting it done best when it matters and then the two best players of the past 25 years in form and hungry. A Latin American teen dynamo is a welcome addition to the mix, but let’s not pretend the pro game is withering on the vine desperately waiting for him to resuscitate it.
Agree completely with Scott Warren.You guys who know the modern swing well: do you think Niemann's back can hold up over the long term? Looks like he puts a lot of stress on the lower back in particular as he moves through the ball.
Call me when ratings increase to him being on the leaderboard. This is a nothing burger.
I was refering to the fact that the number of rounds being played have been declining for years now, new players declining, as well as new course openings declining and course closings on the increase. The problems are numerous and I don`t pretend a dominating player is going to make it all go away but I do feel there could be an indirect postive fallout as there has been in the past when Nicklaus or Tiger dominated.
To be young again....How long can this swing hold up?

I thought this was Danny Noonan......
