I have watched Gary gain valuable experience the past year leading up to his first major win at Pebble Beach last Sunday. First, last year at Bellerive with the 36 hole lead and being paired with Tiger in the final round leading to his first top 10 in a major. Next, following up with another top 10 at the PGA last month at Bethpage. I believe this gave him the confidence to win his first major. What I noticed last week was that how calm, cool and collected he was coming down the stretch to deliver shots like he did on 16, 18 and the amazing chip on 17 that will be talked about for years to come. Doing all of this with a player that has won 4 of the last 9 majors breathing down his neck.
Gary has always been known for his ball striking ability, but it has not gone unnoticed how hard he has worked on his short game to improve it. All of his hard work has rounded out his game to make him more of a complete player. A player that now in my opinion that has vaulted himself to one of the best in the world. The question has been asked all week, will he win another major? My answer is yes. The lid is off the jar, and I think he will win multiple majors. Don’t count him out in Northern Ireland next month, he has had success playing over there.
