Barsby is a forehand player. his FH is great and not at all underrated

Time to bring up Darrell Nodland again, however I don't believe he ever entered Worlds, but was a top contender at USDGC. Now at age 53, rated 1031 in latest update, down 2 points.

Just because you think it's OK to marry your sister, doesn't mean Jay Redding does.

Casey, if I could hit my lines and putt with the same consistency with which you post misinformation... the answer to the OP's question would have to be BogeyNoMore.

At this point, I'm pretty sure you get off spouting BS.

CR Willey mostly runner-up to Climo in Florida events during Climo domination.

So basically, this guy would have won MPO, had he registered for MPO rather than Pro Masters?

Damned impressive.

But if you win your division...aren't you still a World Champion?

Just cuz Sugar Ray Leonard and Marvin Hagler weren't Heavyeeights doesn't mean they didn't win the World's Title.

He would have won MPO by I think it was 6 strokes. He still won his division and received the money and trophy for '88 Master's Worlds Champ.
