Golf Australia Express : GA Express 224
THE NEW BREED HOW good can some of the PGA Tour’s rising stars be? Justin Thomas already answered part of that question by winning the year-opening Tournament of Champions and the Sony Open, with the 23-year-old now having won three of his last five events and roaring to the top of the FedEx Cup rankings. But he’s not the only one. Mark it down now: 22-year-old Spaniard Jon Rahm will win this year, having already rocketed from 551st in the world to 135th after joining the PGA Tour halfway through last season. And then there’s Bryson Dechambeau, who discovered last year that professional golf isn’t always as easy at it looks, but unquestionably has the talent to do big things in 2017. And then there’s our own next batch of stars, with Cameron Davis having already turned pro and Curtis Luck and Brett Coletta likely to follow suit pretty soon. HOW LOW CAN LYDIA GO? EVEN with Ariya Jutanugarn hitting women’s golf like the Tassie Devil in 2016 and others, too, having very strong years, there’s still daylight, then some daylight, and then a little more daylight between Lydia Ko and the rest of the LPGA Tour (going by the rankings, anyway). And that’s even with an end to the season that was somewhat lacklustre, by Ko’s lofty (if brief) standards. Ko didn’t win after mid-July and finished no better than fifth after her tie for 40th at the Women’s British Open. She begins 2017 with a new coach, caddie and clubs, and if she rides out a full season this year, there’ll be no touching her. What comes after daylight?
