Fowler wins a major every night he goes home to Allison
This is true. In my prior hypothetical I failed to figure in the "you get paid millions to play golf and do bad commercials and you have a smokin' hot wife at home so who really gives a **** if you win a Major because you've won life" effect.

A long career? Yes. But a successful career is more what I'm saying.

Would you rather by Bryson and have a great run where you win 3-4 Majors over a 2-3 year period, or be Rickie Fowler who will play professional until he's 50 but never win ****?

Not sure there's a right or wrong answer, but I guess I don't blame Bryson for just going for it.
If I’m a true competitor I want the majors. Rickie is a good golfer but at this point I don’t think he ever wins one. People are remembered for winning majors and why not go for it while you can.

I feel like Rickie should’ve been winning at least one around 2015 when he won the players but he could never quite get there in the big ones. Nothing wrong with a long and successful career never winning a major though.

To finish T5 or better in every 2014 major.. That had to hurt

I like JT, Scheffler, Cantlay, Xander, and Finau. Brooks coming off an injury layoff concerns me. Spieth is too inconsistent mentally even though he just won this past weekend. Bryson isn't accurate enough to win at Augusta.

I like Rahm, Cantlay, Hovland, Cam Smith and Paul Casey. I put a unit on each to finish top 10 and a unit on Rahm and Cantlay to win.

I don’t think Spieth can win, but I bet he’s right around 3 or 4 shots off the winner.

Watching some of the practice round coverage on ESPN today and the greens look like they are going to be firm and quick. Now maybe the expected rain will change that a bit but for now I think it's going to be a tough go.
