Fate Wins Out Again

Webb Simpson wins the U.S. Open, continuing the Olympic streak of lesser known winners.  Nice guy, nice player, but I was pulling for Jim Furyk, Ernie Els, and Lee Westwood.   But the fates deemed it was Webb’s champioship and that was that.  Just as Bobby Jones always contended.  It is a changing of the guard – Ernie, Jim, Phil, Lee, Vijay, and the “old timers” will never win another major, and the new crew is here to replace them.  Just as Palmer, Nicklaus, Trevino, and Watson faded away, so it is now.  That’s golf.  That’s life.  I just hope Webb can be a true champion, win at least 10 tournaments, and not peter out.  Same for Bubba, Rory and all the other one-hit major winners of the past 5 years.  WIN!!!!
