Its telling that the rank and file preach consistency


Most players, however, dont share the would-be cash kings desire for green gold. In fact, the money title was a middle-of-the-pack entry on most players lists.“A major is No. 1, being No. 1 in the world is 1B . . . if you ask my accountant the FedEx Cup would be 1A,” Charles Howell III smiled. “Fourth would be the Player of the Year and fifth would be the money title. serie de fer golf Its telling that the rank and file preach consistency, particularly when asked who may get their vote for Player of the Year, but based on unofficial polling its the quick hit (a major) that is the most coveted accolade.To win a major a player needs to have a great week, the FedEx Cup requires a great month, the Player of the Year Award may come down to a great news cycle, the money title is the result of a great year and the top spot in the World Ranking requires two solid years.“We base everything off how many times we get in contention,” Robert Garrigus said. The money title is a five-year exemption, a major is a 10-year exemption and the FedEx Cup is a lot of money, and thats all good, but Id rather win a major, preferably the Masters. driver golf pas cher
Although the Player of the Year Award which is an even more crowded race than the money title with five legitimate players vying for votes was often at the bottom of many players' “bucket lists,” Jonathan Byrd ranked the Nicklaus Trophy second on his list. Having won the 2002 Rookie of the Year Award Byrd considers a nod from the frat brothers something that should not be taken lightly.“With the Player of the Year youd look back and say youre the best that year,” Byrd said. golf bois
If I were to win that Id consider it very special.”Similarly, the convoluted nature of the World Golf Ranking combined with Tiger Woods stranglehold on the top spot for the better part of a decade relegated the No. 1 ranking to also-ran status on most lists.Byrd, for example, ranked the top spot in the world third on his list “because the (points) system is not perfect.” But Kevin Streelman and D.A. Points had a much greater affinity for the perception, if not the points, of being world No. 1.“If you dont want to be No. 1, if thats not high on your list then why are you out here?” Points figured.While Streelman took the long view, factoring in the two-year window needed to climb to the top of the global heap and the need to be consistent throughout to stay atop the pack.“Its great golf consistently,” he said. “Theres a lot of talk about the way they do the points system, but if you look at the guys who have held it over the past couple of years its pretty tough to debate.”In short, majors rule, but we already knew that. It is telling that the FedEx Cup has 10 million reasons to inspire the masses but is still considered something of a result, not a reason to work harder.It is the money title, the historical benchmark for greatness, and World Ranking, reviled by many as convoluted, that are still highly coveted by Tour types. Just ask Donald and Simpson.
