Back when Daly had the playoff here, I'm pretty sure Corey Pavin and a few other players walked the course during the playoff cheering for JD.

Curious. What's not to like about the guy?
I just find him boring and dull. I also thought he was overrated, but he proved me wrong on that account. I never thought he'd win another major. Like I said, irrational. He also was probably the least compelling story among all the guys in contention down the stretch which didn't help.

I think we're forgetting how good Rory is. All he has done this year is win 3 times, and top 10'd at both majors. It's not like the dude has fallen off a cliff. Over 2 years, Rory has 7 global wins to Spieth's 6. 2 majors each. Rory's run through the end of last year was just as dominant, if not more, than Spieth's start to 2015.

Writing this bummed me out about Rory's injury. I'm convinced he would've been right there at St. Andrews, and selfishly as a golf fan I'd love to see a Rory/Spieth Sunday dual for a major.

Well, that's not ALL he's done. He's also missed the cut in three of his last ten and two of his last three tournaments.
