Welcome to the waggle.
00:01
My name's Mark Crossfield.
00:02
Let's take a look back at 2015's major year, waggle style.
00:09
(upbeat rock music)
00:13
So 2015 is the year of the Spieth, the major dominator,
00:19
winning The Masters, winning the U.S. Open,
00:21
missing the playoff by one shot in The Open tied 4th,
00:25
and then a 2nd in the U.S. PGA.
00:27
Do you get a better major season than that?
00:30
Don't think so.
00:31
Year of the Spieth, it'll be remembered, for a long time.
00:35
Dustin Johnson, could have so easily been his year again.
00:39
That guy, at the moment,
00:41
must just hate Saturday and Sundays.
00:43
He must wake up in the morning,
00:45
and just pray it's not a weekend.
00:47
(mellow hip-hop beat)
00:55
(tea bag thumps)
01:08
He has all the game, doesn't he?
01:09
He could have won so many majors by now.
01:12
Come on weekends, treat me better!
01:14
Tiger Woods, you can't review anything in golf
01:16
without talking Tiger Woods, really.
01:18
Even though he only made in the cut
01:20
in one of the majors this year,
01:21
I think finishing tied 17th at The Masters,
01:24
missing the cut in the other three.
01:26
If he is contending, it's all anyone ever talks about.
01:30
Even if he's not contending, that's all anyone talks about.
01:33
If we're talking about golf,
01:35
it's all anyone, including me, really ever talks about.
01:39
Tiger Woods, we want you back.
01:40
We don't need you back,
01:42
we just need you around.
01:44
So Ricky Fowler's major year, not been his best,
01:47
missing the cut in one,
01:48
and not really featuring in many of the others.
01:51
He has had a fantastic year, just outside of the majors,
01:56
winning The Players, the 5th major,
01:58
just winning the Deutsche Bank.
01:59
He's had a fantastic season,
02:01
just needs to get that major.
02:03
We all want you to win that major, Ricky.
02:06
So you say I look okay do I, in the orange?
02:08
You think I can pull it off at my age, do you think?
02:10
So 2015, year of the Spieth,
02:12
we still have the Fed Ex Cup going on as we speak.
02:16
Jordan Spieth is not showing the form he has shown
02:19
for the rest of the season.
02:21
But can't wait for 2016,
02:24
more majors, more waggles,
02:26
more fantastic golf reviews like this.
02:30
It doesn't get any better really than this, does it?
02:32
It's kind of as good as it gets.
02:33
Watch the videos, always watch videos,
02:36
follow me wherever I go.
02:39
I love you, Golf Digest.

02:46

02:49
Can't believe they're letting me
02:50
have free run (laughing) on this show.
02:54
Oops.
