Luke Donald - When he's on his game he can take on the best of them

G Mac - Proves you dont have to hit the ball a mile to win

Ian Poulter - Speaks his mind and for most brits is a national treasure (Ryder Cup legend)

Least faves:

Keegan Bradley - Just something about him, and he's too tall for his swing :-D

Jason Dufner - The chewing tobacco gets on my nerves

Patrick Reed - bit of a nob

Rickie - Seems like a relatable fun guy to be around. PLus i've been following this kid since OKC days.

Rory/ Tiger- based on pure shotmaking and swing, much like Tiger of old.

The Johnsons - Both DJ and Zach are likable to me. Not to bad on the course either.


Webb Simpson - Seems like a closet dbag to me..

Reed - Something about him bothers the heck out of me.

Rickie Fowler - Contradicting myself but it pains me not to see him win more when he has a hot run of holes.

Jordan Spieth, his game is so consistent - a bit unreal how consistent he is

Phil Mickelson, exciting to watch when he's on his game

Dustin Johnson, always like to see him do well

Kevin Na, honourable mention ever since he took that 16, or whatever it was, and how well he handled it.


Keegan Bradley, just hard to watch this guy.

Rory Sabbatini, seems like a complete rag bag

Ben Crane, so slow and those golf buddies videos or whatever they are, don't help

I do not remember who I had in my least favorite group, but if he wasn't already there, Keegan Bradley has moved straight to the top of that list.  Not just because he showed his ass in the incident with Jimenez in the match play.  But because afterwards he claimed he was the victim of gamesmanship.  What a douche!  Pat Bradley must be cringing.

Mine has changed over the year.


1) Brandt Snedeker: Love this guy. All class and a true human being.

2) Jordan Spieth: Just like Sneds, a true class individual for a guy his age. Humble and respectful and a heck of a player.

3) Phil Mickelson: Always have loved Phil. Always will.

Honorable Mention: Rory McIlroy. Never was a huge Rory fan, but slowly becoming more and more of one. He's matured a lot the last year and becoming much more humble and he's good for the game.

Least favorite:

1) Keegan Bradley. Last week he showed his true colors.

2) Chesson Hadley: Was at the Valspar earlier this year and this guy is a jerk. It makes me hate that stupid snap thing he does even more.

3) Ian Poulter: I don't think I have to explain why. The name speaks for itself.

Honorable Mention: Patrick Reed. He's gone from #1 most hated to Honorable Mention, which I guess is a move in the right direction. Ryder Cup put him in a more positive light, but still not a fan of him. Just don't have the hate for him like I used to.

Rory Mcilroy love the ease in his game Phil Mickelson plays the game his way Jimenez just a great character with a unique game Others Tiger because it's Tiger Cabrera read above for Jimenez Poulter on a charge Dislike Reed just too obnoxious Bradley ditto Sabbatini & Bubba like Watson's game but hear bad things about these two.

I've had some friends volunteer at the Canadian Open for several years whenever it's at Glen Abbey, so I've heard a few 'behind-the-scenes' stories.  Nothing salacious or anything --- my friends haven't encountered any real jerk behaviour, just the majority of players are business-like and focused on their golf.  That said, Jimmy Walker and Jason Day are reportedly both very nice guys who went out of their way to be kind to any volunteer they encountered.  With this in mind, I was pleased to see them both win so many tournaments; karma pays off!

Three current favourites...

* Jason Day.  The Canadian Open stories clinched it, he's great in my books.

* Justin Rose.  Nice guy, great player!

* Miguel Angel Jimenez.  Duh.

Three all-time favourites....

* Mike Weir.  How can any Canadian golf fan not have Mike up there?  The 2003 Masters may have been the single most exciting final round I've ever watched.

* Ernie Els.  A class act all the way.

* Greg Norman.  All that success yet still in many ways an underdog favourite.  If only he'd won a couple more majors!

Three current least-favourites...

* Bubba Watson.  Seems like a jerk.

* Patrick Reed.  Forget top five, Reed made my top three!  Or bottom three?
* Stewart Cink.  The all-time party pooper of a major championship win.

Three all-time least favourites...

* Tom Watson.  It may seem odd to put Watson here when I bashed Cink win earlier, but even I was pulling for Watson to win that Open, it would've been an incredible story.  Watson the person, however, just seems like a humourless old scold. No surprise he crashed out as the Ryder Cup captain.

* Nick Faldo.  The king of the #humblebrag.  Faldo tries to be self-deprecating in such a phony way that it just makes him seem more arrogant.  The sooner CBS gets this guy out of the announce booth the better.

* Hal Sutton.  Gives off a real jerk vibe.  Had gotten married and divorced again since I started writing this post.

    • I'm pretty anal retentive about having first/last name for all my contacts. I have a lot of work related contacts from when I worked as a consultant, so I like to make sure the company field is filled out. If I need additional context for a contact, I will put it in parentheses with their first name, e.g., Todd (electrician), or Mike (golf), etc.
    • I think it’s funny as f’’   No surprise you guys don’t get it lol
    • Today went better.  Range session before the round went well.  Decided to go with a slightly stronger grip with the left hand.  Putting practice went well too. Just working to trust the speed, so I can work on the line more.  Can’t say that I fully trusted it today, but it still went better. First hole is a par 5 that’s pretty wide open, the only hole really that you could go almost anywhere… and I tested that out well. Hit my driver about 60yds right of the fairway.  Managed to put 2iron just short of the green, in the bunker.  Hit to a couple feet for a birdie.  Managed to birdie the next 2 holes as well. After that drive and the previous days experiments, it was going to be 2iron the rest of the day. The 4th hole is 450yds.  There is OB left and penalty area right.  Hit 2 iron down the middle, left me at 200yds in. The remaining par 5’s 10 and 18 (both around 500yds), I hit two 2 irons to be on or right next to the green.  Got birdies out of them.  Ended day with 6 birdies.  But, I missed a GIR on 4 holes, had one 3 putt, and thus 5 bogies.  Day was a -1, 70.  This leaves me right in the middle of the pack going into the final day tomorrow. I want to try and get my driver working in the morning, but I may just end up doing 2iron again all day.  I know I can get birdies, I just have to try and reduce the mistakes.
    • I'm a "Mrs. Carey Barzeski" even for my wife type of person. A few people have the nickname field filled out, and many have avatars/profile pics. If they're a Dr., that is their title, and I just have to remember whether they identify as male or female. 😄
