    Your most likely first time major winner for 2019

    In 2018, with Patrick Reed winning the Masters and Francesco Molinari doing the same at The Open Championship we had 2 first time winners. Neither one would have probably been on many "most likely" lists heading into the beginning of the year, which shows how futile this question really is but here we go-

    Who are your most likely first time major winners for the new year? As a little bonus, in the spirit of 2018, let's pick a North American plus someone from outside our neck of the woods.

    and THP, thank you so much - cannot wait to carry on THE REAL Tradition Unlike Any Other:
    The Freaking #grandaddy2019 !!!

    __________
    In my 2020 ???? Bag
    Drive: Probably something long, forgiving, and dead sexy.
    FW: Driver's baby brother?
    Hybrid: Rocket launcher from all lies, jailbreak goodness.
    Irons: Something from the mad scientists in Doc Hock's R&D labs.
    Wedges: OH PLEASE OH PLEASE LET THEM BE FORGED
    Putter: Whatever the hell Luke and Sean tell me to use.
    Ball: This could be interesting.



    Huge thanks to THP and for the incredible irons and shafts from #shaftup 3 - fitting and build by the amazing Danny Le. Game and life changing experience.

    Fleetwood was the first name that came to mind as well; looks like he'll be a popular pick. Love his swing

    I love the way he goes after the ball and the lightness in his attitude. Listened to a lot of interviews with him last year and hes quickly become my favorite player.

    Rickie Fowler, but I don't think it happens until The Open championship. I also think he'll be the only first time major winner this year.

    If I'm going to take a flier on a euro, I'll take Rahm. He's gaining experience at Augusta, and Bethpage might be a good fit for his game.

    Finau was the first name to come to mind for me. For a player outside of the US I think I give the nod to Fleetwood.
