Golf Year in Review 2015

By all standards, 2015 was an exciting year for golf.

Jordan Spieth captured the first two majors (Masters and U.S. Open), then challenged for the Modern Day Grand Slam by finishing 4th at the British Open and 2nd at the PGA Championship.

His three other PGA Tour victories clinched the #1 world ranking and set the stage for another charge in 2016.

Jason Day played stellar golf in capturing the PGA Championship, and Zach Johnson prevailed at the British Open at St. Andrews for his second major championship.

Tiger Woods fell to 414th in the world rankings and pretty much kissed off chances of catching Jack Nicklaus’s record of 18 professional major championships. Tiger’s return is “indefinite” by his own admission, but don’t write him totally off yet. Remember how he overcame the “chip yips” of early 2015?

Dustin Johnson continues to put himself in contention in the majors, only to find another way to come up short – or in case of the U.S. Open, long with his eagle effort on the 72nd hole.

Rory McIlroy was missing in action throughout 2015, and Bubba Watson is always interesting. P

hil the Thrill seems to be looking forward to the Champions Tour, but can still be considered a threat in any event if his putting gets hot.
