Golfer Supremacy Rankings: Justin Timberlake another American golf success story?
When we were just precocious children, we here at the Golfer Supremacy Rankings did what any children in our position would do - we ranked golfers.
That’s because we’ve had a dream since Day One - to be part of the most important golf rankings system in the known universe. And because we’re Americans, we were able to make that happen. And with 2007 seeing Americans at the top of golf, it’s apparent that the golf dreams of Yanks from Justin Timberlake to Nick Watney to Mancil Davis can be achieved.
Golfer Supremacy Rankings
1. Justin Timberlake
Comments: Timberlake - who once left TravelGolf.com’s Chris Baldwin shrieking like a love-struck teen after an interview - has let it be known that he’d like to compete someday on the PGA Tour. At 26, Timberlake has a six handicap and is a member at Sherwood Country Club in Los Angeles. While playing full time is not an option, Timberlake is hoping to play in at least one or two PGA Tour events in the next four years.
Time will tell if Timberlake will succeed in his lofty goal, but one comment attributed to him proves once and for all that golf is the greatest sport in the history of the planet:
“Golf gives you something to look forward to the next day,” said the mega-rich pop star who has been connected with Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel, among others.
2. Nick Watney
Comments: With a name like Nick Watney, English golf fans had to have woken up to the idea that one of their own boys had taken home the Zurich Classic. But no, despite the English-sounding name, Watney is all American, and continues a great run by U.S. golfers on the 2007 PGA Tour. At 25, Watney pocketed a cool $1.1 million for his first career victory, and joins the likes of Zach Johnson, Paul Goydos, Charley Hoffman, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Charles Howell III, Mark Wilson, Mark Calcavecchia, Fred Funk and Boo Weekley as Americans who have won on the PGA Tour thus far this year. Americans have thus far won 12 of the Pga Tour’s first 17 events.
3. Phil Mickelson
Comments: The new team becomes official at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship, where Mickelson will join forces with Butch Harmon in an attempt to once and for all demolish the Tiger Woods empire. While it will be interesting to see if Tiger’s ex-coach can take Lefty to the promised land, we’re forced to agree with ESPN’s Jason Sobel:
All of which means what happens next for the Mickelson-Harmon team will become overblown and overdone. This much is certain: Should Mickelson find success in coming months, Harmon will receive too much of the credit. Should he fail to win, Harmon will receive too much of the blame.
Either way, everyone will be talking about it.
Random Factoid: Mancil Davis scored his 51st career hole in one recently. And not the putt-putt variety, either. The real thing. Davis - who will go to your event and talk about his four-dozen-plus aces for a fee - owns the PGA record for holes in one, scoring his last on a 154-yard par 3. Ironically, Davis has admitted that he’d give it all up if he could be a pop star and hook up with girls like Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johansson and Jessica Biel, among others.
