Brooks out and Ricky in for 2020


Brooks Keopka’s “Major” run may be over for 2020

A take on the season from our PGA Professional Peter Nolan

Brooks Koepka is a beast on the golf course…. Let’s get that straight. His power and accuracy are extraordinary, and his putting has been solid when in front for a few years now. But times change and this year may be a tough one for Brooks to dominate as he has in the past few seasons. The course list for 2020 is the main reason for his struggle as they just don’t fit his bomb and gouge game style.

The Majors this year will visit:

The Masters – Augusta National

US Open – Winged Foot

The Open – Royal St Georges

The US PGA Championship – TPC Harding Park

The course list this year offers a checklist of skills required that lean towards a magical putter, a crisp recovery game, and consistency off the tee. Winning scores at Winged Foot have been +5 (Geoff Ogilvy) and +7 (Hale Irwin) with St Georges varying between -1 (Ben Curtis), and -13 when The Shark (Greg Norman) tore them apart in 1993. It is also worth noting that runners up to Geoff Ogilvy at Winged Foot were Monty, Phil, and Jim Furyk, who are all creative but steady players with short game magic.

The top 5 for me this year to win a Major will be:

Ricky with his hot putter to grab one (at least)

Patrick Cantlay to take the next step and take a Major home (without smiling)

Tiger to grab another Jacket  (please please please)

Dustin Johnsons to return to the top at the PGA (if he stays fit and … healthy)

John Rahm to be around the mark all year (If he doesn’t become the Spanish Patrick Reed)
