Golf Australia Express : GA Express 215
F RESH off that widely criticised and 'truly disastrous' season that saw him win twice, finish in the top 10 every third time he teed it up, and collect a paltry $5.5 million in prizemoney, Jordan Spieth has no doubt spent the offseason wondering how he’ll ever pick up the pieces. If that’s a disappointing year, wait for the bounceback. Spieth only needs to improve by a small margin and he might win four or five times in the 2016/17. It wouldn’t be a shock to see him reclaim the world No.1 ranking at some point during the season. SPIETH UNSHEATHED T HIS time last year, Bryson Dechambeau was outside the world’s top 1600 before heading Down Under and vaulting inside the top 800 after tieing for second at the Australian Masters. This year he’ll start the season knocking on the door of the top 100, and it won’t be long before he’s entrenched deep inside it. He’s among the most talented youngsters on Tour, he’s just had his first professional win (albeit on the web.com Tour) to claim his first PGA Tour card, and he’s got a bit of x-factor. We’re tipping a maiden PGA win this season. BRACE FOR BRYSON I T’S hardly going out on a limb to suggest that Rory McIlroy will hoist another major trophy in 2017, given he just won the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup. But let’s not forget he missed the cut at the PGA Championship and US Open, with inconsistency continuing to dog him throughout the season. But after winning the season-ending event, as well as the Deutsche Bank Championship, the Northern Irishman is back in the major conversation. There could be a major in his immediate future. MAJOR SUCCESS FOR MCILROY F RESH off their Ryder Cup success and with a newfound team chemistry, the United States will rightly be expecting big things at the Presidents Cup, to be played in New Jersey at Liberty National Country Club. While there’s a good argument to say that the International team will put up sterner resistance than Europe, with Jason Day and Adam Scott to lead an experienced lineup, the home side should still have too much depth and will triumph by a couple of points.
