Even though I am pretty terrible at it I like to make predictions so I thought I would put together a post about some things I predict will happen in 2012.
New England Patriots to Win the Super Bowl
I was going to pick the Green Bay Packers here but since they went out with a bang last night against the New York Giants I don’t see how the Patriots would not win the Super Bowl this year. Sure the San Francisco 49ers were great against the New Orleans Saints but I don’t think they will manage to beat the Patriots, no matter how good their defense may be.
Tiger Woods to Flop (Again)
After Tiger Woods managed to win the Chevron World Challenge at the end of the 2011 PGA Tour season there is once again an enormous hype surrounding the previous world number one and it seems everyone is expecting him to win the PGA Money List this season. I am of another opinion however and I think Tiger will continue to play the poor golf we have got used to post scandal.
I predict that Tiger won’t win a major this year and he won’t finish in the top 5 on the PGA Money List.
Webb Simpson to Win the PGA Tour Money List
Since Tiger Woods will have another terrible season the door is wide open for someone else to win the PGA Tour Money List this year. Webb Simpson finished second on the PGA Money List last year but this year I think he will improve that and claim the number one spot. It’s hard to find a more consistent performer on the PGA Tour than Webb Simpson and consistency is exactly what you need in order to finish high up on the money list.
Brendon de Jonge to Win a PGA Tour Event
Brendon de Jonge is far from what I would call a solid player but when he is playing well he can put together a string of very low scoring rounds and it’s only a matter of time before he claims his first win on the PGA Tour. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he manages to win at least one PGA Tour event during 2012.
Marcus Nilsson to Continue Playing Crap Golf
If there is one thing I am sure about it’s my own inability to improve as a golfer. I don’t think 2012 will be the year where I finally manage to get all aspects of my game to fall into place and I predict yet another year of playing poor golf. I will however start taking some lessons to try and improve my game so that I will give Stefan a run for his money this year but I would be very surprised if I manage to get good enough to beat him on a consistent basis.
