Riviera is setting this week for the best golfers in the word. A storied track set not too far from Santa Monica and in the shadows of the Hollywood hills. Jordan Spieth is coming of a big win at Pebble Beach, where he ran away from the rest of the field. Jordan continued a trend of tour winners in their 20’s. The average age for winners this year is 24…uhhhhh SICK BRAH. That’s exactly what the doctor ordered, well not Tigers doctor but a huge shot in the arm for the tour. The youth movement has included Thomas – 3x, Matsuyama 2x, Swafford, Rahm and of course Spieth who has win #9 for his career
Who will be the STAR of the show this week:
Last year – Bubba Watson (jerk). Lets stick with the Hollywood theme and take a look at my A,B and C list picks.
A List: Dustin Johnson – almost caught up to Jordo last week and contended last year at the RIV. He is used to the lifestyle out in LA and wont be star stuck.
B List: JB Holmes – Top 11 last year and has made the cut last 3x. Dude can playyyyy and I love the horses for courses trend.
C List: Thomas Pieters wont be C-List for long (see Ryder Cup) but he is making his tour debut. Won an NCAA championship at Riv. Dude has game for dayzzzzz.
We have a lot of STUDS playing this week. All the top players in the world will be there and should be a great event. CHECK IT on the Golf Channel and CBS on the weekend.
