after an abysmal chip effort.....at ryder cup....on last hole....hunter choked huge.
i have done it...most of us have..although he is a pro and its not supposed to happen.
but on pga tour .com i was reading a article by a guy about hunter putting a choker title behind him and he talks about how good hunter played at pebble.

played well at pebble overall...but choking behind him> guess writer turned tv off before the 18th hole........

yeah he played well...until...yeah...u guessed it...until the final hole? did this writer miss yet another last hole...with slight chance to win....by hunter who drove the green in stunning fashion in two...only to take three putts from just a few feet away from hole?
not to mention a virtual tap in for the second putt...which he missed.

nice guy.....felt for him when he cried at ryder...but i wouldnt want this guy to be someone i depend on for a crucial hole......mcdowell? yes. tiger? yes. but hunter?
r u kiddin?

Are you talking about the 2008 Ryder Cup where he lead the US scoring?

Come on, he's a strong finisher. A mishap on a big stage does entangle someone with a bad stigmatism, but he's far from the choker.

What about the rest of the "could have but didn't"s who have more haunting ghosts in their closets? ... I for one disagree.

Not a fan of his sunglasses though.

nope....i have put milli vanilli and 1984 behind me as well...i guess you missed it but the ryder cup was held just a few short months ago.......:p
i am talking about what have you done for me lately...not a time machine. i have seen him in the past six mths in only two crucial last hole situations and he has choked on em both.
his chip at ryder cup and his putts at pebble combined are about 30 feet, yet he took 7 shots to hole em both.

Seriously?? Mahan was out of it before the start of the last round, he got himself into the tournament by shooting -6 on Sunday. The 3 putt on 18 was untimely but anyone who has watched golf played at Pebble over the years they know that is a difficult pin placement and not easy to 2 putt. As far as the chip in the Ryder Cup, that was unfortunate and seeing his reaction afterwards . . . he was crushed. I am sure that everyone who has played golf has done that, I felt bad for the guy. Right now I would not have Woods hit a putt to win anything, McDowell yes!

This is all you need for this thread. Hunter closed the deal Marino usually can't find the course when in contention in the final round.

Hmmm, one of the younger superstars on the PGA tour and he does not meet your criteria for perfection.

Did you happen to see somebody named Tiger Woods = World #3 golfer choke on the final day in his last 2 tournies and dunk a short iron into the water on 18 in Dubai, missing his yardage ( back of green and spin it back) by some 20 -25 yards


He choked in the President's Cup on 18 against Weir

5 iron in the drink on sunday at Augusta losing to Zach Johnson

He could not seal the deal at Sherwood last year

etc etc does he too have a history of choking?


World #2 golfer also dunked it on 18 at Dubai

Phil failed to whole his wedge to tie a few weeks ago

PGA Tour is full of chokers it seems:rolleyes:

When was the last time Phil had a good final round??? Augusta... other then that I can't remember to many times he broke par on Sunday over the last year.

Phil missed 2 short putts on 17 and 18 on Sunday at Pebble... longest was 5'. Choke???

Up until a few years ago, when the stars finally aligned, Phil Mickelson was known as the BIGGEST choke on tour. He still shows flashes of that and I don't think I have to remind anyone of them, so to put him in this category seems more than fair.

You don't think, with his talent and all the opportunities he has thrown away, that if Mickelson was "clutch" he'd have more career titles and majors?!?!

nope.......one time does not make a choker.......two times in a row in crucial scenarios was my point.........phil has not played well on sundays lately..that is not choking. you need to look it up for definition...choking is being in a high pressure situation and folding like a cheap suit....playing poorly overally is not choking......
can you really defend his chip though? it literally went like five feet? it was worse than the high handicappers at most courses...he didnt even get it on the green.
choke.

I'm guessing you're the one who turned off the tv... for the record, his first putt was from 45 feet 11 inches and the return putt was from 4 feet 5 inches.... but maybe that's just a gimme for you! :cool:

Every golfer makes bad shots.
Just because one happens at a critical time doesn't mean that was a choke and the others were not.
How many Americans made multiple poor shots in the Ryder Cup and could have made the difference and it wouldn't have even been up to Hunter to keep it going on 17?
If anything, the others were worse.

come on he is only 18th in the world

sits 6th in the Fed Ex Cup race

what basis can you use to say that and not agree that he is a choker :rofl:

Mahan is not a choker, but I think he lacks the little extra mental fortitude that would seperate himself from a good golfer to be a great golfer at this juncture of his career.

This whole post is somewhat of a joke!! I understand that sharkhark is just trying to stir things up, and by now understands that you are alone on this ship!!!
Obviously, you didn't see Mahan stripe his drive and thread a 3 wood on to the green! obviously you don't understand that a guy like Hunter only cares about winning and once he missed the eagle putt, in his mind he had lost!
3 wins, do you remember him "stuffing it" on 18 to win the travelers and lets try to remember the WGC Bridgestone last year..... 64 last round!! beat Tiger by 30 shots!!
So we are hang this "choking" hat on one chip..... that he had to make! close meant nothing! Wow!

ps....ok...he is a good golfer...never said he wasnt...i said he is now a choker. present tense. i find it funny in all the posts supporting him...nobody seems willing to even mention the ryder cup..no joke...look threw them...all talk about years past...not currently.
so he didnt choke at the ryder? his chip didnt make the green....it dribbled weakly like my urine flow after my last colonoscopy........

It's amazing how people forget what they know about golf when they decide they want to throw the word "choke" around.

Players make bad shots. Players have bad rounds. Last week Hunter had a bad round and couldn't get it back -- that happens to a lot of players.

Last week doesn't qualify as a choke; it qualifies as a bad round -- from a guy who has also gone low in final rounds, it should be noted. Perhaps two bad chips in critical situations qualify someone as a "choker," I don't know ... but I do know that Mahan is an atrocious chipper anyway.

I'm not sure what provoked this irrational hatred of Mahan, who as far as I know is a pretty decent guy. Is this because of some obsession with being "right," (or appearing to be right)? I wouldn't have expected that, but the "I will be here" comment is rather strange. I can't fathom what the source of this apparent hatred is.

Unless ones knows what Hunter was thinking/feeling when a poor shot(s) was made, no one here is qualified to classify him as a choker, which at best, is a very demeaning term.

As you inferred, there is a mindset that must be developed in order to consistently win coming down the stretch. Going back in time, Tom Watson and Payne Stewart were two players who frequently got into contention, but played mediocre golf near the end. That is, until they mentally broke through that barrier and went on to do very well after that. I would love to see Hunter make the original poster, eat his words this year.

hatred? huh? I think the guy is a choke artist.....cannot handle pressure...long stretch from hatred...last i heard he doesnt kick puppies in his spare time.
but to say one round does not make a choker...huh?
I jumped on back in this thread to stir it up again...when he choked for what must be the 4th or 5th time in the final round in recent past.
i guess by your argument nobody can be labelled a choker....everyone can just play and not be labelled...i am sorry...we all get reps....
when you need a guy to make a crucial putt....gmac...knocks in those two to beat tiger last yr....
....kind of funny i use him as an example...as he is the one who played when choker mahan started this trend of good play...but final round defeat.

well he had that chance recently at pebble....and folded...had that chance a couple weeks ago...and faded once again from the lead..like i have said before he is good enough to keep winning....just needs something like a 15 stroke lead or thereabouts...to be able to withstand the dropped shots in a final round.:rofl:

Okay, perhaps it's more fair to say that you're obsessed with, well, something. I'm not sure what ... but you're the one who said you're going to keep on coming back to the board to slam him.


but to say one round does not make a choker...huh?Huh yourself. I didn't say you said one round made him a choker. Boy, for someone who just accused another poster (in another thread) of not being able to read complete sentences, this is a bit ironic. Read what I said and comprehend it; it was straightforward. Don't make me explain it to you.

I jumped on back in this thread to stir it up again...when he choked for what must be the 4th or 5th time in the final round in recent past.Fourth or fifth time in the recent past? Name those other three or four times, please.


i guess by your argument nobody can be labelled a choker....everyone can just play and not be labelled...i am sorry...we all get reps....
What I'm saying is that armchair critics love to use the word "choker" to label people they don't know, when they have absolutely no idea whether it was nerves or simply failed mechanics that cause problems. As someone who golfs, you should know better than to assume that every failure is a result of choking. Sometimes people hit bad shots. Sometimes people have bad rounds. It's not choking, just because you feel the need to judge someone.

I'm not sure why Hunter Mahan upsets you so much, but you seem to get very upset when he plays, and even moreso when someone disagrees with your snap judgments. Relax a little.

Moments after Rickie Fowler gave the Americans a chance to win the Ryder Cup, Hunter Mahan flubbed it away.

Mahan succumbed to the pressure on the 17th hole Monday, chunking a chip to hand Europe a 14.5-13.5 victory in this year’s international golf showdown. Mahan’s inability to come through in the clutch looked even worse after the 21-year-old Fowler had birdied the final three holes of his round to earn a half-point and keep the U.S. in contention into the final match.

Hate to break it to you, it wouldn't have mattered if Hunter holed the chip. GMac was unstoppable that day.

3 up after 13, 1 up on 15, huge birdie on 16 to go 2 up, I don't see how you can even THINK Mahan had a chance :rofl:

Even if Mahan holed the chip, he has to basically eagle 18 to get it back to AS to retain the cup. Or did that little fact escape your mind?

I still find it unbelievable to blame Mahan alone for that loss when figjam didn't win ONE match until Monday.

Him, Fowler and Furyk were three guys to play 3 matches last year. Mahan and Fowler both scored only 1 point out of 3 possible points. Furyk was 0.5. I don't think Fowler did anything more than Mahan; Furyk simply didn't do **** :rofl:

i love gmac & he is greeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaat
of course he had almost zippo shot at it....but he had to at least putt short grass to have a shot....by choke tee shot he left it short he left zippo opp & by chip still short of short grass he blew it sooooooooooooo bad........

i am well aware of almost zero shot at it.......but you have to try you have to try

Mar 21, 2011, 09:31 PM
Tell Phil and Furyk to try harder next time and bring home more than 1.5 points combined between the two of em.

LMAO @ you have to try. It wouldn't matter, he needed to win the last two holes. The chance of him dropping it on GMac (w/o the Irishman responding) was probably nil considering GMac just made a bomb on the last hole.

The only problem with Hunter is that he really doesn't have an A+ short game and in fact for a pro it might only be considered a C. The rest of his game is almost flawless IMHO. Yes he might hit the odd bad shot under pressure, but he is one magnificent ball striker and will be a star on the PGA and world stage for a long time. The more "your there" the easier it becomes to relax. He will still be under great pressure in the majors and president/ryder cups, but he will succeed much more then he fails. You can take that to the bank!!!

sharkhark,
i want to ask you a question.
I notice you're from hailfax.

Why is it that people from the Maritimes have to let everybody know that they're from the Maritimes by having those big ugly NFLD stickers on their car windows???
