Carlos Alcaraz defeats Casper Ruud to win the US Open final
I have to say, I am so sick of Carlos Alcaraz. He has been fighting his way up the career ladder for years, only to disappoint because he is too much of an underdog.
I am sick of his play being called “average” or “poor”. He is only average because his skillset has yet to evolve.
He was really only good at one hole, a par three, and if he had to do it over again he would do it better.
He was able to finish that hole because he needed to get to the green in one shot – not a fluke, but also not great.
Then after making a par on the par three, he was able to not hit the next three shots.
His game is not about big scoring, you either get to the green a few feet ahead or it is all over.
He is a great competitor with a good mind game but that does not mean I have to like his game. He has been going through the same journey over and over again, only to get the same results.
That he is now even the top seed in the tournament means he has now beat the top few golfers of the top five, making him and his game look average.
The US Open is now at the top of the sport; they have done nothing to encourage young players – they need to make sure they have some of their best players, like Tiger Woods and Bubba Watson.
If you look at the last five top players, all but Woods is in a great relationship with a great person.
I would not be surprised if they would let them play the next two holes together, because that is the only way you do it right.
Carlos Alcaraz will find out this week what it is to play the US Open final with Tiger Woods, but at the same time, he will find out what it is to play in the final with Phil Mickelson.
If he wins, he will be able to retire with the title that only Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy have ever won, and that is a huge honor. He could win the US Open again.
But if he gets the worst score in the history
