Same as V.J. Singh. My theory is if you want the hype you have to start with a bang rather than slowly improving over the years. And frankly these players are not the type where you run to see them play. Who wouldn't rather watch Bubba Watson ?

That life's not fair is a truth well illustrated by this situation. It's not hard to understand why Furyk commands little respect, as he is not very marketable; in fact, he is a marketer's nightmare.

You could say that he is the anti-Bubbles: He isn't flashy, doesn't have a beautiful swing, isn't attractive (he's bald, for one thing), isn't particularly long, and he doesn't shoot his mouth off. Don't misunderstand me, these factors don't matter to me, but they do make a difference in a superficial world.

Furyk is a quintessential plodder, a competitor who justs plays "boring" golf and gets the job done.

Oh, I forgot to mention something else that makes him the anti-Bubbles: He wins. The world doesn't care as much about that, though.
