Wikipedia (the keeper of all knowledge) cites him as one of the best interviewee's of all time on the Jim Rome show (something to do with his use of the phrase "rubber dongers"). Johnny Miller has routinely described him as the best dressed man on Tour. He's had meningitis multiple times and he was invited to kiss Bubba Watson's back side. He plays timeless (outdated) irons.
In spite of such peculiarities, or perhaps partially because of them, Steve Elkington has been seen by many as an embodiment of the golfing lifestyle; a nattily dressed shotmaker who has been known to speak his mind to any/all press outlets.
