    Re: Rory signs with TaylorMade - breaking news

    I am as big a fan of rory as anyone...but I would love to take him on at wedge play, reckon I could get a dozen balls inside his best attempt from 100 yards...


    Never seen anything so tragic, driving it 320 centre fairway then missing the green from 100.

    Re: Rory signs with TaylorMade - breaking news

    Just my opinion but he just doesn't look interested. From the way he walks and his general attitude on the fairway it appears as if his mind wonders once he's hit the Tee shot.

    I wondered some years ago if his heavy concentration on gym work to build strength has cost a bit in finesse.
    Or, perhaps a side effect of gaining tremendous wealth early on in his career and contentment in his marriage means the hunger and drive have diminished.

    Tis a pity.

    It’s the same observations people were making about him just after he signed with Nike and had millions and the tennis superstar girlfriend and he looked way off the pace for a good period - then he clicked and won the PGA then The Open and then The US PGA in the same season.

    He seems to me that he is trying too hard - going at shots from the fairway really hard and doesn’t seem smooth when he is hitting his irons and then when he does have a chance of birdies he is really going at the putt - he always seemed to end up 4/5 foot past the hole when going for it and then he was struggling for par.

    I have no doubt once he clicks again it will all come together again - the man has far too much talent and desire to be out of the running for too long

    He isn’t the only one a few have a bit of form issues - Spieth , Stenson , Rose - all searching for early season form.

    Re: Rory signs with TaylorMade - breaking news

    He's admitted in the past that making cuts doesn't interest him and to me it becomes quite clear as soon as he is a out of it his attitude changes.

    Woods used to say as long as he made the cut he thought he could still win, Rory either doesn't believe he can catch up, or doesnt have the grit in him to try. It's a little like young footballers not hitting potential once they get their first big contract.

    Rory is a great talent, and i hope he wins a few more majors as on form he is a joy to watch. But its over a year since a win now and atm it's not like he's knocking on the door.

    It's a crazy mindset that though. Look at Justin Thomas last week. Was well out of it and shot 62-64 at the weekend to get into a playoff. Rory's definitely capable of that when he's playing well, he can tear up courses.

    He needs to ask DJ what he did to improve his wedges and copy it!

    I'm embarrassed if I miss a green from 100 yards it's pathetic st that level from the fairway. Approach shots are absolutely terrible for that level.

    Re: Rory signs with TaylorMade - breaking news

    Massive difference between him and woods is tiger would probably trade all his millions to win more majors

    Rory is happy to just take the deals and let the money come in.
