Stock Market for Golfers - Who is up and Who is down?

The stocks of PGA Tour players and Courses as reported by The Golf Channel.

 Each week on, we’ll examine which players’ stocks and trends are rising and falling in the world of golf.


DJ (+9%): It’s not an exaggeration: This guy can be a world-beater … if he wants it. Hopefully Johnson truly has turned the corner in his career and in his personal life, because he’s a remarkable talent and a joy to watch.

Inbee (+7%): Her HSBC title was more than just a big-time win against her two chief rivals. Park looked them in the eye and beat them, straight up, a victory that will supply her not just with confidence but also a psychological edge.

LPGA (+5%): Week-in, week-out the ladies are producing the kind of storylines that a marketing department can only dreamabout. If the top three players in the world played in the same group on Sunday in a PGA Tour event, well, our heads would explode.

Bubba (+3%): His inward 39 cost him a chance at another boldfaced title, but all signs point to Watson being locked in as the Masters favorite.



Rory (-1%): OK, so it’s probably not a great sign that we spent more time last week talking about his club fling than his golf game. Only one start remains before Augusta.

Tim Finchem (-4%): Seems Phil is a powerful persuader, because that was a rare gaffe from the PGA Tour commish, admitting that he “whiffed” when he green-lighted the PGA’s plan to exclude the fall events from Ryder Cup qualifying. With an improved relationship between the two organizations, we’d expect a points-structure change with the health of the Tour at stake.

Tour transparency (-5%): On the telecast and in the media tent afterward, it was an awkward tap dance for everyone involved with DJ winning a big event only a month after returning from a suspicious leave of absence. Blame the PGA Tour’s ridiculous policy of not disclosing player discipline.

Trump National Doral (-8%): In the past few years, can you recall a regular PGA Tour venue being so roundly (and publicly) criticized by normally p.r.-conscious Tour types? Nope.
