I don't really hate any pro golfers but I have to agree.

V.J. carries himself better then anyone on tour. Like everyone who is in the public eye he has maybe said a thing or two he shouldn't have but who hasn't. He is a gracious loser and winner and a genuine sincere guy. I wish him nothing but the best everytime he plays and admire his work ethic and passion for the game. He is a true professional.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I wouldn't say "hate" but Tiger's caddy has a serious attitude problem. In fact, so does Tiger.

As someone said before golf is about entertainment, not letting out a string of words that would make even me proud while on camera (he leads the tour in fines for dropping the F-bomb on live TV). Everyone gets mad at themselves about the game and we all have the same problem, but keep a lid on it. After all you're on national TV.

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I agree that TW and his caddie might be seen to have an attitude problem, but lets not forget that 'Steve' has a very difficult job to do in ensuring that Tiger can play amongst the chaos. Having such a protective caddie is part of the reason why Tiger has been so successful in recent times. But having said that, he does seem to be a bit heavy handed in his disciplining of spectators and the media. They should not forget that without the media on the course, Tiger would not be earning what he his and golf would not be so popular as it is today.

So now "entertaining" is only "behaving properly, and often like a robot"? I find it "entertaining" when a pro has a temper tantrum.

Besides, golf for Tiger is not about entertainment. It's about winning.

That's a total guess, and has been said by many others before, he's on TV more than anyone else. My experience with Ian Poulter shows that every pro can be an ass under the right circumstances, and I've taken pictures of Tiger, and he sure as heck didn't act that way.

In fairness, his attitude stems from inappropriate behavior. As it does for a lot of pros. Taking pics during his swing is just wrong and his outburst is reactive.

Look what happened two weeks ago. Rod Pampling is putting for a second place check, fedex points, improving his world ranking, etc. What happens? As he's going through his putt some idiot screams "Way to go, Phil." Is that appropriate?

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

First of all I don't hate anyone. That's a big harsh. However, I'm not a fan of Ben Crane. And this isn't entirely fair as the guy has picked up his pace of play but he was so annoying to watch. Also, I plugged him into my fantasy golf lineup a few weeks ago and he withdrew right before his tee time

Second guy who comes to mind is Bubba Watson. Him not allowing any of the TV guys (Maltbie being one that comes to mind) get anywhere near him on the weekend at I think it was the US Open. Plus he just comes across as a jerk.

I think Ian Poulter may now get some honorable mention after a recent thread or two

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

Hate is way to strong a word but the pros I can't stomach are:

Ames-just comes off like a jerk to me
Sabbatini-I loved his talk of going after Tiger but he lost me leaving Tiger's tournament early with cash in hand

Re: Who do you hate the most on tour?

I don't hate any of them but I can't ever find myself rooting for Hefty, err Mickleson. Just don't dig the guy is all.

For me it's Gary Player...who wants to see that in Sports illustrated? But that's not why. I bought a driver from his company. Returned the club. Never got my money back, wrote continuously to the company and later it went out of business. That SOB owes me $168.00. Plus he's an egotistical a hole. Makes me sick every time I see him. Plus he's an ass that had to make sure he beat Jacks record of playing in the most majors even though he should have bowed out gracefully like Jack did.

Brave perspective. Did you really have to dig up a five-year old thread for that?
post #103 of 139
Actually yes! Googled "hate Gary Player" and it lead me to this site. By the looks of it I'm not the only one who hates him.

Next to "in the hole" man, a close second was alleged comedian Matt Griesser in those stupid Sign Boy ads. I quit wearing Footjoys after a couple of seasons of those ads.

I know JJ well from him being a cousin of my best friend growing up. He's pretty damn "aw-shucks" alright and a genuinely nice, generous guy.

 

Edited to add: I didn't realize this thread was so damn old.

I don't hate anyone they just seem arrogant or just get on my nerves for various reasons.

 

Sergio

Zach Johnson

Johnny Miller, and I know he's not actually playing anymore but he is a very annoying golf analyst.

Something about the guy that just irritates me.
Same here. And I don't like his face. Its stupid.

I couldn't agree more. DL-1/3d is a bore.
