Hovland is the most consistent of the 3 he hardly misses a fairway, needs some work on his short game but he's consistently making cuts and usually in the top 15. He would be my pick. Ricky can get hot and win one but so far he hasn't played very well this year. Wolff is really streaky he easily could have won on Sunday but he missed some easy putts and he made a couple of amazing putts. I think if he just pars the 1st hole Sunday he would have won but he made a bogey and it got to his head.
Hovland is definitely the most consistent and will make the most money and earn the highest ranking in the short term over the next few years.
But, Wolff seems to have the highest ceiling needed to win a major if he hit a hot streak at the right time.
Fowler can win but he’s had chances over the last several years but never closed.
The best part is it could be any of the 3 really. The last few years there had been 1 OSU golfer that has had a chance. Now, we have 3. Seems like 1 will be in it just about every weekend. It was Wolff last weekend, Hovland this weekend.
Hovland, no doubt. He has the perfect game for major golf, he just needs to tighten up the short game a bit. Wolff will be a guy who contends 4-5 times a year and misses a bunch of cuts. Hovland will be the superior pro. I love Rickie but I think he’s got a lower ceiling than both Hovvy and Wolff, plus he married Allison Stokke...I would practice less.
Hovland needs to stop yucking it up with his fellow competitors and take a page from Tiger’s book, and develop a killer instinct. He had a great opportunity this weekend and Morikawa seemed more focused.
