The Outlook

What a strange – and quiet — decline it’s been for Holmes. Two years ago, he recorded a pair of top-four finishes in majors. Last year, he made the cut in all four of them. This year? He’s yet to qualify for any of the first three. I suppose just playing in this one should be considered a win, but it’s clearly been an underachieving campaign for the former Ryder Cup team member.
