Wasn't a big fan of Jeff Overton until his reaction at the Ryder Cup....

 

 

So American. It's so hilarious it's awesome. :D

Id have to add him to my list too.  I absolutely cant stand him.  For me though its more that he's a drunk and a loser but the golf media still worships him and so badly wants him to win on tour that everytime he has a good round they proclaim, "HE'S BACK!!!" and then he puts up an 85.

Tiger

David Duval, cant stand him.

Hunter Mahan- I hate those stupid sunglasses.

Tiger- had enough of the his club slamming and bad attitude after bad shots.

 

Thats about it.

Daly - just a train wreck. He gets such a free pass and so many apologists.
Mickelson - just comes off as fake to me


As for the "I don't like Tiger because he cheats on his wife...." crowd, well if that is the criteria than you'd probably hate about 75% of the PGA. Just sayin'......b1_ohmy.gif

So you are defending Tiger's behavior and saying he should get a pass?

Nope no free pass; just consistency and not hypocricy.   If marital infidelity is the basis for not liking him (or any pro golfer for that matter), then you probably won't like many of the pro golfers.   Statistics (infidelity by married men at 50%+), logic (stands to reason that pro golfers, with money and lots of travel time have an even higher rate) and common sense (the "boys will be boys" culture" in the PGA) strongly suggest that those guys we are watching on TV play the game we love also have girlfriends in various cities.   That's why when people take the moral high ground with respect to Tiger.   He got caught, but I don't think his morals with respect to marriage and fidelity are all that different than most of the guys he plays with.

For cheating on his wife?  Yeah-I'd say that's between him and his family.  I don't particularly care for Tiger, but that's because of the spitting, cursing, club-throwing, pissy attitude, and general lack of charisma.  If you're going to hate a man or woman because of infidelity, then stop watching movies, TV, professional sports, amateur sports, listening to music, reading books, looking at paintings or any other work of art, etc.

Phil Mickelson

Ian Poulter

I'm astounded at how much of this is "I can't stand his sunglasses," or "I hate those pants" etc.  The "Mickelson seems fake" thing is weird too.  Because he's enthusiastic, friendly, and happy?  He's crazy rich and plays golf for a living.  And he's really good, despite his questionable decisions.  If there were no Tiger Mickelson would be the greatest golfer of the last 20 or 25 years.  Maybe he should start spitting or cursing frequently.

 

Whatever-I do know I'm rooting for Fowler and Poulter now. wink.png

post #105 of 147

Don't really have any super strong negative feeling towards any of them because they are all living the dream. But, if it came down to the wire I would rather see someone other than Sabbatini or Fowler win.

Widely known on tour that Mickelson had (i say that b/c i don't know if he still does) a HUGE gambling problem. Just saying, appearances aren't always as they seem.

I've heard that.  Not sure why it makes him seem fake.  Is Michael Jordan a fake?

Speaking of spit takes. Now I need to get some paper towels (and a new coffee).
