The PGA Tour heads to Atlanta for the final event of the 2020-21 campaign.
It's been quite the season, especially when considering at the start of 2021 there were still no fans in attendance. Fast forward eight months, and although things still aren't back to normal, it at least looks that way on the television.
As we look ahead to this week and the years ahead, one thing we should recognize is the insane amount of talent on the PGA Tour. We'll start with Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, and while the first thought that comes to mind is just how good these guys are, there is a total of only four majors among them. Sure, Rahm is very early in his career, but DJ isn't, and JT has been around a while now. These golfers have immense talent, yet there just aren't enough majors to go around with the likes of Bryson DeChambeau, Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka out there as well. You have to wonder if anyone in this era will even get to five majors. Koepka needs only one more and Rahm seems destined for a number north of that, but nothing is set in stone. A couple years without a major and suddenly the pressure mounts. Who would have thought in 2014 that Rory McIlroy would still be in search of his fifth major in 2022?
