Favourites Mickelson-Seems to have a great attitude and very gracious. Just fun. Poulter- Love his up and at'em approach just wish he was like in Majors not just Ryder Cup Copules- laid back much like Mickelson and cool for a guy in his fifties Dislike Sabbatini- Self explanatory V Singh- See above Tiger- I love watching winners who dominate but I'm not over keen on him and he has a flaky reputation with others but its hard on him being a global star. Demands on his time etc..

It is hard to know how these guys are just seeing them on TV. Seve was always the cocky swashbuckler on TV and in interviews. I was following him at a tournament once and wound up by accident walking with him from green to the next tee. It was the middle of his round but he was smiling and gracious and even approachable. I wasn't after an autograph or anything, just by chance wound up on the same path, and it was like walking to the next tee with your best golf buddy.

Favorites are Tiger, Phil, and Snedeker Can't stand Cameron Tringale-thinks he is clever, but just a douche. Bubba- pissy all the time. Ugh cut that hair. Ben Crane- dude you are not funny. They should all look at how Nick Faldo conducted himself. True gentleman/champion.

That is interesting because back when he was playing Faldo had a reputation as a bit of a jerk.

I like .. Rose Poulter as a Brit, we all like rose and poulter, and I'm really hoping they can perform in the Ryder cup! And I also like jiminez! He's pretty cool! I like watching tiger, bubba and Phil just to see glimpses of pure brilliance occasionally! I don't really hate any golfers, the only golfers I don't like are those who's clothing offends or bores me! I like style on a golf course! Fowlers hats always offend me! I hate them! But he redeemed himself recently with his Stewart tribute! Although the hat still made me gag!

I'm not a Brit, but I like both Rose and Poulter.

PGA Dislikes: Would be Sabbatini, and/or Perez.

PGA Likes: Non really stand out. I do wish Daly would have had a better career. Even though he's not a player, I have to give "Fluff" an honorable mention.

Champions' Likes; Tommy Watson, and Freddie Couples. No dislikes on that tour.

For some reason, Tom Watson really rubs me the wrong way. To me, he comes off holier than thou, sanctimonious almost. He irks me to no end. And Tiger is the bees knees.

This was mine last year, I have since changed my mindset to...who would I want to follow around the course?

I'm now going with

McDowell

Tiger

Miguel Jimenez

Least favorites stay the same. Though I hate Sergio and Schwartzel less....Poulter is still lame and I'd love to see him miss the Ryder Cup.

    • Let us know how it goes. 
    • Cost and time.   THanks..have to give it a try..just trying to get back into my set without investing $$ for the time being..TY!
    • From yesterday's round. Approach to the green was a little long, and my ball was sitting on the back fringe. Large pile of coyote shit between the hole and my ball. The putt was right to left breaking so luckily my line was maybe 2-3 feet to the right of the turd, and there wasn't much chance of rolling into it, unless I hit a terribly offline putt, or got unlucky with a deflection off a bump in the fringe (which is quite beat up where my ball came to rest).
    • You're not supposed to change your vote. 😛 The problem with that is that the "shotgun pattern" doesn't account for the putts that go in. Yes, the distributions of both get larger. Bobby should have studied probability more. A putt going toward the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. Both result in a miss. A putt that is missing the hole, if mis-directed, can go left or right. One may result in a make, the other is still a miss. Bumps (if large enough to deflect the ball a little over an inch or so, and if close enough to the hole for a miss to become a make) have a negative outcome 100% of the time when the ball is going in, and a positive outcome 50% of the time when the ball is going to miss. Or to put it in absolute terms, every bump on a ball that would be going in the middle has a negative outcome - it steers the ball farther away from the center of the hole, and every bump that steers the ball on a putt that's missing has a 50% chance of "helping" by steering it in the right direction. Nope. You can join Bobby Jones in the statistics/probability class. 🙂 These bumps aren't knocking the ball feet farther away. They're not tees randomly stuck in the ground. They're just bumps on a putting green. That's the kind of road you can lead yourself down when you don't just look at it logically. 😄 To the majority of you getting this one wrong… Let's make an extreme example. You have one putter that makes 80% of his putts, and another that makes 50%. The gap is 30% or 0.3 strokes (1.2 versus 1.5). You introduce enough randomness that 25% of the putts that were going to go in miss and 5% of the putts that were going to miss go in. The gap is now: 0.8 * .75 + 0.2 * .05 = 61%. 0.5 * .75 + 0.5 * .05 = 40% What was a 30% gap is now a 19% gap. The gap narrows. The good putter is punished, even though he's punished at the same "rates" as the bad putter, at a higher "value" because he hits more putts that would have gone in, while the bad putter hits more putts that could potentially only be directed in. To put it another way, there's a larger possible "negative" adjustment or change for the good putter and a larger possible "positive" adjustment or change for the bad putter. This is true in pretty much* all cases: the more luck plays a role, the less skill plays a role. * I'm a "never say never or always" kinda guy. I can't think of a time when an increase in randomness or luck also increases or at least doesn't reduce skill, but again… see the first sentence here in this asterisk.
    • Why? On 40 foot putts, they both don’t have much of a chance.  It’s the putts inside 15 feet that have the highest Separation Value.  So if a great putter makes 5 of 10 putts at 8 feet (tour average) on tour greens and he missed 1 or 2 more on crappy greens, his percentage changes more. The bad putter is missing more of those anyway, even on good greens.
