Bubba Returns to Win: A Bright Mind
Bubba took a very Well deserved triumph in Riviera. His talent was clear and it was very entertaining to see the trajectory of his shots and the angles with which he attacked the field - from tee to green.
Bubba's talent can not be questioned, the lines and angles that the visuals in the field are unique. What are your ups and downs?
Dr. Edward Hallowell in this Golf Digest note suggested Bubba take a treatment for his attention deficit disorder (ADHD) seriously. .
Dr. Hallowell says, "Having ADHD is like having a Ferrari engine in mind, but with bicycle brakes." It is very clear what your mind can do, but in the same way those bicycle brakes are your number one enemies sometimes.
Now, let's look at the curious case of the year of your decision to play a ball in base color available (pink and green!):
- December 2016: Bubba closes the year with the # 10 position in the world ranking
- January 2017: Bubba signs a multi-year contract with Volvik - a ball best known for its popularity in "Long Driving" competitions and with popularity in Asia. (Virtually NOBODY uses that ball on the PGA Tour)
- December 2017: Bubba closes the year at position # 89
- January 2018: Bubba returns to play the Prov1x WITHOUT a contract
- February 2018: Bubba wins the Genesis Open
The best free ad of the Titleist PROV1x? I leave them at half a meter for the tap-in.
Summary of Latinos
Abraham Ancer (T68). Good start of the tournament, he passed the cut but loosened the weekend. Friday was his best day, which makes clear his potential:
- 64% of fairways right
- 44% of GIR
- 3.56 in strokes won with the putter (strokes gained putting)
Jhonattan Vegas, Fabián Gómez and Camilo Villegas did not beat the cut.
European Tour - NBO Oman Open
Joost Luiten took the win and confirmed his good moment. Interesting to see how the candidates for the Ryder Cup are taking shape. I keep betting on Europe.
The Paraguayan Fabrizio Zanotti finished tied for 7th place. The statistics of Fabri in this 2018 (Greetings to Hernán Rey!):
