Stock Watch: Matthews transforms misfortune into individual triumph

96


Each week on GolfChannel.com, we’ll inspect which players’ stocks and patterns are rising and falling in the realm of golf.

RISING

Tommy Fleetwood (+9%): Winless (yet exceptionally aggressive) for 22 months, the Englishman got off the schneid at the most ideal time. His success in Sun City was worth $2.5 million and now sets up Fleetwood to possibly take the Race to Dubai, on the off chance that he can remain blistering in the season finale.

Brendon Todd (+7%): Everyone adores a rebound story, and Todd’s is superior to most: From top 50 on the planet to the full-swing howls to a potential vocation change to consecutive successes on Tour. His bolt, unrealistically, is facing up once more.

Brandon Matthews (+5%): Because of his caring reaction to a fan with Down Syndrome, Matthews is currently progressively understood for losing on the PGA Tour Latinoamerica than if he’d won. Ideally competition executives observe a child who unmistakably has his needs all together.

Russell Henley (+2%): A tip of the top to Henley, who missed the cut at the Mayakoba after he called eight extra shots on himself for disregarding the one-ball rule. It was an excessively brutal punishment, so perhaps he’s in line for karmic compensation.

Jordan Spieth (+1%): What to get the man who has nearly everything this Christmas season? What about some free world-positioning focuses, as Spieth, down to 43rd on the planet, was skilled a spot in Tiger’s no-cut Hero World Challenge. ‘Tis the period of giving.

FALLING

Abe Ancer (- 1%): To be reasonable, everybody Honest Abe’s age (28) would presumably love to tussle with Woods in a display … however, to really vocalize it? Shades of Stephen Ames, man.

Vaughn Taylor (- 2%): Needing a birdie on the 72nd gap to drive a season finisher, Taylor left his 15- footer short. Ouch.

J-Day (- 3%): Hoping for some energy heading into Royal Melbourne, Day rather shelled out with a second-round 77 in Mexico on his way to a missed cut. It’s looking increasingly more likely that the (swallow) Skins Game win will be the feature of his year.

Euro Tour dramatization (- 4%): Only four players have a numerical opportunity to unseat Bernd Wiesberger as European No. 1, and they all require in any event a runner up finish in Dubai and the Austrian to play horrendously. Good karma with that.
