The West Coast Swing Enters the Final Two Weeks

As the 2016 Season continues, there has been some interesting wins. Jordan wining the Tournament of Champions was quite impressive throughout the entire 4 rounds. Fabian Gomez surprised with some great clutch putting to get into a playoff with Brandt Snedeker. Rack up another victory for the young guys as Fabian won the playoff with Snedeker. Then Jason Dufner showed everybody that when he is on, he is a force. He got an unbelievable break on the 17th hole in regulation to have a swing and shot from all the rocks in the hazard surrounding the water. He went on to victory in a playoff over David Lingmerth. Snedeker then won at San Diego with probably one of the greatest rounds in foul weather in the history of the Tour. How he shot a 69 on Torrey Pines South in the high winds and rain is really amazing. Then Hideki Matsuyama wins in Phoenix in another playoff with Rickie Fowler. My take on this early play of the year is that Rickie won in Dubai, unfortunately hit a driver perfect and hit a down slope in the fairway and spring boarded forward like a shot and went through the green and into the water to make a bogey in Phoenix. Keep you eye on him as the majors approach. Spieth played a few tournaments overseas after the Tournament of Champions win and I hope he doesn’t tire himself out too early in the year. My prediction for the this article is that Phil Mickelson is going to win soon. His ball striking is so much better, as in Phoenix he was 13th in Accuracy, 12th in Distance and 6th in Greens hit in Regulation. The Florida swing starts soon, and before we know it, Augusta will be here. I can’t wait!!
