The top 5 players you look for in a field before watching the event. Sometimes those 5 determine whether or not you'll be watching the tournament.

Mike Weir

Phil Mickelson

Tiger Woods

Fred Couples

Sergio Garcia

That's a very good question because I cannot come up with 5 players.
A few of my favorites have slipped a little like V.J. Singh, Ernie Els, Retief Goosen, Couples, Davis Love; they just don't have the mojo anymore.

Geoff Ogilvy I like to watch
Bubba Watson is fun

For me its:

Tiger Woods (obviously)

Justin Rose (I'm English and he's a similar age, height & build to me)

Luke Donald (love that swing)

Vijay Singh (love that tempo)

John Daly (hope springs eternal)

I always end up with some free time on Saturday and Sunday so I watch some of just about every tournament.
I don't care if Tiger is in the field because, well, I'm getting sort of bored with his greatness.
I want to see some competition.

The guys I really root for are not generally on the "telly" on weekends: Fred Couples, Steve Elkington, Joe Ogilvie, Jerry Kelly, Tommy Armour III

1. Geoff Ogilvy (my favorite golfer)
2. Phil Mickelson (always makes it close)
3. Tiger Woods (all-time best golfer in my opinion)
4. Sergio Garcia (tanks his drives, plus it's fun watching him get frustrated by his putting)
5. Luke Donald (smoothest swing, and he's got my first name )

I'm so addicted to golf that I could care less who is in the field. There are so many players to learn from: Kenny Perry proving that consistency will provide you with a lucrative career, Jerry Kelly and his humor, Mike Weir always playing to his strengths. If I only had to choose five, it would be:

Woody Austin
Boo Weekley
Paul Casey
KJ Choi
Phil Mickelson

1. Tiger Woods (not hard since he's always near the top)
2. Phil (always makes things interesting)
3. Sergio (always been a fan, want him to win a major)
4. Jim Furyk (cool swing, looks like a shark)
5. Snedeker (went to high school near me)

    • I’ve only done it once myself
    • Last time out I did make my first birdie of the year at 3. Hit a PW up hill to a 125 yard flag to 6 inches. Landed it short of the stick with a low trajectory hoping to skip it back to the flag and have it check up. Couldn’t have missed making a 2 my very much. Rest of the day I did my best to Kevin Na some birdie putts. Was feeling it after that shot. At 4 I smoked a driver and then hit a gap wedge from 92 to within 5 feet. I hit what I thought was a great putt and started walking it in.... lipped out on the high side tho. At 11 I hit my 2nd way right but my 3rd within 5 feet at the par 5. Again tried to walk one in only to lip on the high side: guess I should leave the walking in of birds too the pros!
    • Commenting ,just before  taking the shot (especially negative thoughts) affect your golf swing. Man I feel bad for you. It was awful. Action with some new rules should be taken for this. 
    • Well, at least you have the par-4s down!  I had a round a few weeks ago at my home course that would have been my second-ever no sixes (first was not at my home course)... played the par-5s in -1 (all pars and a birdie), but two sixes on par-4s did me in for the challenge.  Thankfully I have the badge from two years ago or so, but it'll be nice to have a few more rounds that fit this. 
    • Day 206.  Stop me if you've heard this one before.  15 minutes after work of 6-iron shots (about a half dozen total balls this time).  Same focus:  setup, backswing pace and length.
