    Re: Hunter Mahan Nice Guy but Choker

    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!!!

      Hunter Mahan and the greatest choke artists of all time





      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.
      he may be a choker in your eyes, but unless you are a card holder on the PGA, he's accomplished more than what you will ever accomplish in your lifetime. don't be a IDIOT

      Also, thank you.
      A while ago, i used to say the same things about a young lady from hawaii on the LPGA. You now make me realize how stupid i sounded.

            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???

                Actually, he's from Ontario and just recently moved to Halifax.

                Not sure what that has to do with Hunter Mahan though.

                    Sharky is from your home Ontario.

                    Those people who bare those stickers are extremely proud of where they come from. Not sure why it offends you (it sounds that way). Its a totally different world down there, the people are very friendly and wear their hearts on their sleeve, what you see is what you get. No matter where a Newfoundlander resides, NFLD is always Home. If you need a little help, you get an army. They will take strangers into their homes in time of need, feed them and clothe them, and make them 'honourary Newfies'. Its not just where they are from, its a way of life and its in their blood.

                    Quick question and I'll stop the threadjack....do you get equally offended when people fly the flags of their home countries (Spain, Italy, France...etc...) when its World Cup time?

                    On to Hunter....great win, and the guy had to come through a really tough field of top ranked players. I'll admit I was rooting for Rory, but it was a very deserving win!

                      I would like to see Mahan to become a dominant player for me to take interest in watching him; his personality and bland life story alone ain't doing it.

                        Bland life story? Strong amateur career. Making millions on a game. Multiple winner on tour. Plays with emotion but hides it well during competition. Married to HIS ideal girl.

                            Well that NOME putter sure gave him some life though....

                            He didn't have to scramble and chip though.

                            He looks to be in better shape and swinging consistent I must say.

                              I appreciate the swagger of both McIlroy and Westy, and they both back them up; they give me rooting interest. Same can be said about Tiger and Phil. IP, AK and RF have a lot of swagger but can't really back it up.

                              In tier-1 events, he has never been considered a favorite; I think that speaks volume. His wins are mostly unexpected.

                              As I said in my post, I would like to see him emerging from his peers so that I care more when I watch him play.

                              As far as making millions, married to a trophy wife, and winning several times, there are a shrewd of players like that on tour that are equally bland.

                                OK I uess I worded it wrong. I was pretty mad because I checked his President Cup MP results as well as Jim Furyk who had gone 5 for 5 V his 4 and 1, so I pick Jim instead of Hunter - Killed my picks among others.
