PGA POLL: It was once Phil, then Sergio, now...

Many of the biggest names have tried, many times, with no luck. Which guy is next? Those I've listed have been around for awhile, with Hideki being the newest of the bunch, but a proven big name for long enough to be deserving. I think Lee Westwood's chances have dwindled to practically nothing, though at one point in time a few years back, he was probably the biggest name who was expected to win, but never did. John Rahm hasn't been at it long enough, so I can't include him. I expect him to do so soon though. If not, in the next few years, he will probably be looked at as the biggest name to never win.

What say you? Pick 3 guys you think had the most promise at winning a major by now, but haven't.

(I actually had Jimmie Walker on the list until I realized he won one a few years back.) Probably should'a put JB Holmes on there too, but, too late.

Watching John Ram yesterday I got the feeling he will win Masters someday. I don't know what I am talking about though.

Kuchar, Fowler, Casey. I believe they all came in 2nd, some multiple times... Rickie was real close yesterday with that last putt on 18 (and the pressure that Reed must have felt to 2-putt from a ways above the hole).
I'm gonna go low this time...

I have to go with Rham being the next 1st time major winner.

I don't conform to your stipulations Doug.

Ok fine I'll take Rickie from that list but I won't like it.

I am no Rickie fan, I think his ability to win is highly overrated, yet I think he will get his. He doesn't get too high or too low, in fact he is probably the flattest flatliner out there and that will eventually put him in the right place at the right time. He seems content with decent finishes, and also not too bothered by the disappointments. Yesterday post-round he was asked repeatedly about the disappointment but kept talking up the positives. His attitude excludes him from the truly elite, but I think it will also serve him well over the course of a long career. By serve him well I mean he will earn respectable money on the course, and of course give himself lots of opportunities to win FedEx cups and what not.

Kuchar has been a top 20 type player a long time. Probably lost his chance last year.

Westwood has been an elite player for at least two long periods. Seems like a really nice guy but doesn't seem to have the "it" factor to have won a major.

Rickie is an obvious choice. Matsuyama and Rahm haven't been elite long enough in my opinion. I'm not sure I consider the rest of the group elite although I think one could make a case for Casey IMO.
