Lol, Scheffler has back to back top-20s in Masters and a win. World number 1. Semi prodigy the way Thomas was. Yet, he may be heard from here or there again, lol. Can’t make this shit up. Talk about not following the game.

Yep just like Thomas,  never good enough to hold court on the whole tour for more then one or two seasons.  As soon as Scheffler gets done with the hot roll,  he is maybe 20th on tour by 2024

So you think Thomas is done winning? What does this even mean? Is Brooks a flash in the pan, he’s like 16th in OWGR. Bryson 19 and Spieth 20. They all must be flash in the pans lol. 

Look, winning is hard AF on tour. I would be more surprised if he won again this year. But that doesn’t mean he is a flash in the pan. He will be around for years to come and contending.

Scheffler has played in 6 PGA tournaments since mid February….he’s won 4 of the 6


I’ve been following PGA pretty good since the mid 80’s….that’s about as rare as rare can be

And all 4 have been legit fields. Phoenix this year was loaded compared to normal. Then Bay Hill, WGC, Masters.

I do remember Mark O’Meara winning Pebble, another tournament, Masters and  the Open in 1997.

Molinari also won 3 out of 5 with a runner up and top-10 or something. But one was a euro win (but a big one). 

But Scheffler is still the stuff of Tiger, as far as I can recall.

I mean he’s won 4 out of 6 PGA events. I mean I’m not crazy to say none of us will ever see that again

But I am pretty sure I’ve seen this before a few times already, and I’m 34. David Duval won…and then again…and again. And then again early the next season. I’d confidently it was at least 4/6. 

No way Tiger didn’t do it at least once.

Vijay would almost be a mathematical impossibility to not have done this or better in his ridiculous 2004.

Rory in 14 and 19 had to come close if not doing it. 

Scheffler is on a tear, but this isn’t some out of world thing we are watching. Although, the 4 fields he has beaten probably rival the best stretch ever (with acknowledgment to the WGC being match play.)

Salvaging a 5 on #18 Saturday was huge.  Then the chip-in on #3 and the clutch 8-10 footers on 11 and 12, were amazing.  His chipping and putting were a thing of beauty.

Assuming you're right for likely the first time, what a horror to be the 20th best in the entire world at anything.

What, you're not surprised everyone can't be Tiger or Jack? Shouldn't someone like that come along every year... 2 at the most?

I expect Jim Nance to say one day, “Faldo, what do you know?  You were just a flash in the pan.”
