Joe is the sports & outdoors guy. This dude loves all Boston Sports, snowboarding and all that mess.
Lets be honest, the Players should be a major. Biggest money tournament of the year. Consistently draws an A+ field and really just gets golf fans like me jacked up for the Masters only a month away (also coincides with the opening episode of Game Of Thrones, but that’s a subject for another day).
Winner: Dustin Johnson
Cool bro, taking the #1 golfer in the world and the odd on (co)favorite to win the tournament. What can I say? I’m a big DJ guy. He’s been playing super well- winning the WGC Mexico in his last tournament and Top 10 in 4 of his first 5 tournaments this year. Just wait for them to show Paulina running onto the 18th Sunday afternoon to give him the kind of hug a winner deserves
Top 10 Player: Jordan Spieth
I know. I know. I know. He’s sucked as of late. T54 at WGC Mexico, T51 at Genesis the tournament before that one. Definitely has not been on a streak to make anyone think that he’s going to perform better at the Players. However, I got faith in Spieth, and he is going to turn it around, and the Players is his time to get back.
Long Shot: Ian Poulter
T11 in 2018, T2 in 2017. He likes this course. T23 at the Arnie Open, and T2 at the WGC Mexico. I think it comes out firing once again. Don’t @ me when he’s near the top of the leader board come Sunday.
