Much like in the business cycle, golfers on the PGA Tour boom and slump. Perhaps it's not over such predictable intervals and without such apparent cause as in the world of commerce, but PGA Tour golfers are apt to find their games a bit frostier, their mechanics a bit mushier and their paychecks a bit smaller at times.
Golfers whose last names are Kuchar, Woods, Scott or Snedeker needn't be concerned about firing up their respective games late in the season, as they're hot enough right now. However, former world No. 1 Luke Donald's game is more like the warm glow of embers than a raging blaze at the moment.
