The New Seve? Jack Isn’t Convinced.

The New Seve? Jack Isn’t Convinced.

Let's Not Get Carried Away Just Yet..

Over the weekend, Victor Dubuisson claimed the runner’s up spot in the WGC Accenture Match Play in Arizona, and in doing so, all but cemented his place in Paul McGinley’s European Ryder Cup Team. However, this is why PG’s Jack thinks Victor Dubuisson will let the European team down at Gleneagles. Take it away Jack..

Dubuisson_mediumI have nothing against Victor Dubuisson, and his rise through the rankings has been seriously impressive. However, I was almost disappointed to see Victor Dubuisson play so well this week in the desert, purely because in doing so, he has secured his place in the 2014 Ryder Cup team, SEVEN months in advance. No matter how impressive he looked in Arizona, the problem is, he’s a flair player. He has a couple of major swing issues, namely the linkage between his arms and body, which, in my opinion, will lead to inconsistent results.

During the final against Jason Day, the Frenchman was considered a “Houdini”, “the next Seve”. All because, twice in a row, he managed to hit a miraculous recovery short game shot from cactus. Well let’s face it, any time your golf club has to pass through desert, plants and tree roots to get to the ball; the outcome of where the ball ends up is very much in the lap of the gods. Let’s look instead at the fact that in the closing holes, when the pressure really mounted, he couldn’t manage to keep his golf ball in Arizona. What will he be like in golf’s most pressure packed environment, the Ryder Cup?

He is young, clearly incredibly talented, with many big tournaments ahead of him, but I fear we will see him fall away through the mid part of this season, and be a real weak link come September. Of course, I hope I’m wrong!
