I agree I have changed my opinion of Reed , even Mclory , Rose , Rahm would not compete in Europe..I bet if Rory had won a major he would have travelled to Dubai though as one major win would put a player near top of rankings

Been an odd year. I feel those who have actually played well on the European Tour haven't collected the correct points to reflect that. You can basically win either a major or a WG tournament and be in pole position to win something that you have barely took part in.
Things need to change moving forward as that would have been embarrassing if PR had won the Race to Dubai.

I love it when people with small men syndrome put comments like this on. They obviously don’t understand how much skill is needed in this game, so much more than sports like rugby and football. They earn millions of pounds and if they have the skill, good luck to them. Would you turn the millions of pounds down if you were good at any sport. Small man syndrome can be treated I think. Hehehe

Great results all round, Westwood has had a very consistent year and deserves to win R2D, especially considering he really helped support the tour a lot when it restarted in the summer. Hope he can still keep it going for a few more years at least

Also great to see Fitzpatrick win today too, seems like a lovely chap and I really think he has what it takes to win a Major soon

Fitzpatrick, whilst having the other qualities you highlight, doesn't really hit it long. He knows that on this course, a low ball trajectory enables him to run it on so that his numbers this week are better than usual. He really is a top golfer but, unless the PGA actually wake up to what is happening with big hitters, players like Fitzy won't get all the wins their and effort talent deserves.

Westwood has been a great player over four decades. Great attitude and work ethic. Is playing the game for fun as others his age have fallen away. His putting has improved tremendously of late which is a factor in his success this year. If he can putt out of his skin next year he’s a great chance in one of the majors to complete his career! He’s not keen on playing Ryder Cup - been there done it!

With the press, once you have a history of any sort, that's all they tend to think about when they look for material to fill up their articles. And unfortunately, Patrick Reed has generated for himself quite a lot of negative history. It's a very difficult impasse to break unless one side is willing to do something to change the situation.

I posted that I think Westwood is a far better golf player than Harrington despite what they have won with regards to Majors.

A truly outstanding achievement at 47 when the depth of talent in the pro ranks is the deepest in history. Chuffed to bits for him.

Fitzpatrick, whilst having the other qualities you highlight, doesn't really hit it long. He knows that on this course, a low ball trajectory enables him to run it on so that his numbers this week are better than usual. He really is a top golfer but, unless the PGA actually wake up to what is happening with big hitters, players like Fitzy won't get all the wins their and effort talent deserves.
