Top 10 Best Players Who Have NOT Won a Major

April 13, 2007 -

“He who signs the checks” has asked “He who is not smarter than you” to write a blog for “Those who are smarter than I”. First, however, “He who is not smarter than you” legal advisors Dewey, Shankem and Duff have told me to write the following disclaimer. Any one who reproduces, rebroadcasts, or uses any of the nonsense from this blog ASL emoticon shall be sentenced to a minimum of forty days and forty nights doing “drill from hell”. Secondly, if “those who are smarter than I” do not derive any joy, pleasure, satisfaction, relaxation, or humor from this blog ASL emoticon they will be sentenced to working in Bunkers in Arizona for the months of June, July and August. Something ” he who signs the checks” is familiar with doing for “he who is not smarter than you”. With that disclaimer out of the way, I shall now proceed.

We are all looking for guidance for our golf games. Some spiritual enlightenment that will take our game to the next level. I think that true enlightenment came in the advice the Dalai Lama gave to Carl Spackler when he told Carl “goongalagoonga”. The problem is “he who is not smarter than you” has no idea what the Dalai meant. I am hoping “those who are smarter than I” can lend some help.

Finally, of the following, who do you think is the best player not to have won a major, and who will be the first to win one. “He who is not smarter than you” has more than likely left someone off the list. Feel free to add to the list:

1. Adam Scott
2. Sergio Garcia
3. Padraig Harrington
4. Trevor Immelman
5. Henrik Stenson
6. Luke Donald
7. Aaron Baddeley
8. Charles Howell III
9. Debbie Samsing
10. Kelly Ewing

Thank you all for being a part of the Bird Golf School Family, and let us look to have a little fun together with this bloody blog (whatever)

    I would have voted for Sergio Garcia because he is cute and wears the best clothes after Tiger.

    However, after he spit in the cup, I don’t think he deserves to win. He should grow up.

  2. golfguru says:

    You are absolutely right, Carol. He should grow up, and contrary to popular belief it is not his putter that is holding him back. He still has some swing issues to deal with

  3. Ted says:

    Have to disagree with you golfguru on the swing issues of Garcia. Since 2003-2006, Garcia has ranked 78th, 4th, 1st, and 37th in greens hit in regulation. His putting average over the same time has been 175th, 129th, 196th, and 158th. This year he is ranked 131st in greens in regulation and 51st in putting. He has only played in 6 events, probably not enough for a true reading. Garcia just needs to grow up and perhaps take a putting lesson from a Bird instructor!

    Great post, Ted! Maybe, Sergio should try using PeakVison Sports sunglasses; they would make him see the greens more clearly; OR….if ever there was a player that needed to use Clear Key more than Sergio it would be his girlfriend’s Dad (Greg Norman)!

    Lorena Ochoa. This lady has IMMENSE talent but has had quite a lot of trouble “closing”. Perhaps it is that she carries the weight of a nation on her back which heightens the “pressure” that SHE feels; but she is devolping “Normanesque” (to be avioded at all costs) qualities.

  6. Jim Shutiak says:

    How about that great swing master and unorthodox Canadian Moe Norman? In the 50’s he put three tee shots in a six inch circle out in the middle of the fairway over 260 yards out in a closest grouping three tee shot competition. Moe had the smoothest swing I have EVER seen. The guy could work miracles.

  7. Jay says:

    JIM; You speak the truth. Moe was perhaps the best ball striker….of all time! Jack Nicklaus said that he was, so there would not be a better endorsement than that. Also, Moe was friends with Carey Mumford, who had the chance to play and observe him on several occasions (there is an article that Carey wrote about the first time he played with Moe, on our website, under “articles”, and named “Golf With Moe”).

  8. keygolf says:

    Jim, I’m likely biased when it comes to Moe, since it appears that I saw him quite differently from the majority of observers. But one thing that might interest you is that I once asked him what he thought about when he was making his shots. He quickly replied, “I am puuuuuuure energy.” And then he told me that he also applied a visual image of Niagara Falls going over the rim in slow motion. I found that out long after I discovered the clear key, but Moe was doing that before I found it. Neither of us knew about the other at that juncture. He was the most unforgettable person I ever met.

  9. admin says:

    Great Blog, Doc; thank you. I think that our readers would love to hear more stories about Moe, if you have the time. Without a doubt, one of the great characters of our grand pursuit (although very misunderstood), and certainly one of the best, if not the very best, ball strikers of all time. The fact that you were one of the very few people who he allowed to get close to him, would provide invaluable insights into this remarkable man.
