Golf Australia Express : September 2014
Y OU won’t believe us, but we’d planned this Hunter Mahan feature about a week before The Barclays. As a FedEx Cup talking point, Mahan made both plenty of sense and no sense at all. Here was a player whose consistency — not just year in and year out on the PGA Tour, but when the big bucks were up for grabs at the season’s final fling of tournaments — was utterly metronomic. Only one player had never missed a single FedEx Cup event. Mahan. And only one player had played every single FedEx Cup event yet remained winless in the series. People love a winner, so there was no dozen roses or box of chockies for this American. vWhile lesser players like Heath Slocum and Charley Hoffman were counted among FedEx Cup tournament winners over its seven- year history, Mahan’s name was absent from any kind of honour roll. Then he roared home with three straight back nine birdies to win the first event of this year’s Playoffs, and suddenly the magnitude of Mahan’s dependability came sharply into focus. Never missing The Barclays, where 125 players are invited, is hardly astoundingly impressive. Similarly at the Deutsche Bank Championship, where the top 100 get through, you don’t have to be a world-beater to scrape a gig. Chop another 30 at the BMW Championship and you’re starting to get warm.
