    Bit of time on my hands today so let’s do some golf season predictions for 2021.

    Obviously the pga season started 2 weeks ago but the european tour starts this week with the big Abu Dhabi championships.
    Massive year ahead in golf with all the majors, Ryder cup, solheim cup and even the Olympics so plenty to mull over.

    So let’s get to some questions;

    Race to Dubai winner 2021:
    FedEx cup winner:

    Majors:
    Irish open winner:
    Masters winner:
    The Open winner:

    Does an Irish player win a major in 2021?
    Does Rory win a major and how many?
    How many majors does DJ win?
    Do we have a 1st time winner and who?

    Will An Irish lady make the solheim cup team?

    Ryder cup:
    How many Irish players on the European Ryder cup team?
    Who wins the Ryder cup?
    Does Tiger make the US team as a player?
    Name 5 players from either team which will be rookies?
    Name 4 “big” names to miss out on selection?

    Who wins the gold medal in Japan?

    Random:
    Do either rickie or Speith win again this year?
    What player makes a big jump in world rankings (like outside the top 100 to top 50 or 30)
    Does Bryson’s head explode with all his ****e talk??

    Race to Dubai winner 2021: Hatton
    FedEx cup winner: DJ

    Majors:
    Irish open winner: Rasmus Højgaard
    Masters winner: DJ
    The Open winner: Oosthuizen

    Does an Irish player win a major in 2021? No
    Does Rory win a major and how many? No, but I don't think he's done winning majors long term
    How many majors does DJ win? 1
    Do we have a 1st time winner and who? Yes, Harris English or Xander. I would say Rahm or Hatton but both need to sort out their attitude so I don't think either is ready just yet.

    Will An Irish lady make the solheim cup team? No

    Ryder cup:
    How many Irish players on the European Ryder cup team? Rory is a lock to qualify. Shane should get in, but I'd wager he'll be a pick
    Who wins the Ryder cup? USA comfortably
    Does Tiger make the US team as a player? I'd love to see it but no chance
    Name 5 players from either team which will be rookies? Wolff/Hovland/Morikawa/Wiesberger/Mcintyre
    Name 4 “big” names to miss out on selection? Fowler/Rose/Spieth/Stenson

    Who wins the gold medal in Japan? Morikawa

    Random:
    Do either rickie or Speith win again this year? Based on how they've played the last 18 months I think there's a far better chance of both falling outside the top 100. Would love to see both win though!
    What player makes a big jump in world rankings (like outside the top 100 to top 50 or 30)? Takumi Kanaya
    Does Bryson’s head explode with all his ****e talk?? I certainly hope so
