like: Miguel Angel Jimenez
Dislike: Charlie Rymer (awful commentary)
Tiger - His accomplishments speak for itself. Still rooting for him to catch Jack
IK Kim - Yes she missed a 1-footer, but she showed a lot of class and kept her head up even after the loss. She's cute too...
Yani Tseng - My wife is Taiwanese so she and I cheer for her.
Gary McCord - His inability to STFU during his commentary and his stupid mustache puts him at the top of my list
Phil - When I started playing and watching golf, I couldn't stand listening to Phil because he sounds like he's trying to sell something to you even if it was at a press conference.
Rory Sabbatini - He's a douche...
I am pretty sure the pronunciation has to do with what letter follows the "c." Nothing more, nothing less. Micilroy just sounds odd, macilroy sounds right. Compare it to McIntyre. That is also pronounced with a "mac" and would sound funny with a "mic" ... I don't think it's a coincidence.
I like to watch:
Rory McIlroy (not because he's a good golfer, just because I like how he pronounces his name)
Nick Watney (hometown guy)
There really isn't anybody I dislike. I pretty much always root for everybody except the leader because I'm always hoping for drama.
Tiger Woods - I enjoy watching myself on film from time to time
Rory Mc (can never spell his last name)
Phil Mickelson - Phil the thrill
Henrik Stenson - Ever since that time he took of his clothes...
John Daly - Disgrace to golf
The baby walrus - Another disgrace to golf. The guy is fat as f*ck and doesn't even try half the time.. yet some how shoots good. All in all, he's disgusting to watch.
Tiger- Reminds me of myself. Always fun to watch.
Dufner- Love his style, or lack thereof.
Dustin Johnson- Likeable guy
SERGIO- Takes the cake easily on this one. Can't stand the guy.
John Daly- Was given a gift and seems to take it for granted. He just gets under my skin. Seems to disrespect the game to me.
Miguel Angel Jimenez- I can't justify why I don't like him, and really I don't think that I truly don't like him, I just root against him. Really have no solid reasoning for this one. He just rubs me wrong.
