Now that we know who has won this year’s Majors, it’s time to wonder about those who haven’t won. The Times Online has a list of the top ten, with commentary. Their picks, from ten to one: K.J. Choi, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Robert Allenby, Stuart Appleby, Chris DiMarco, Luke Donald, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia and Colin Montgomerie.
Colin won’t get off that list. And—as much as I like him—I think its unlikely that Chris DiMarco will either.
A more interesting question might be to try to predict the next first-time winner. For that list, I’d have—in no particular order—Allenby, Appleby, Choi, Scott, Donald, Charles Howell, Trevor Immelman, Hunter Mahan, Ken Duke and Anthony Kim. I really believe that a couple of these under 30 guys are poised for a breakthrough.
I can see Howell winning at Augusta, in his hometown. I honestly don’t think that Garcia will ever win—unless its by accident. He’s a head case.
