Favorite Player

13 posts in this topic

I've been an avid fan of golf for several years now. I love playing and watching as most of you do and enjoy joining in the conversations. When I started watching golf, I didn't want to like Tiger Woods, but through his amazing playing, he somehow won me over anyways. Another favorite of mine is Bubba Watson. Watson makes shots that not many would dare attempt. Last year a 40yrd hook to win te masters, the year before that, his 2nd shot was a driver off the ground that he sliced around a corner to make eagle on a par 5. Who is your favorite player and why?

Steve Stricker because he's a class act and is an amazing putter.  I always like to cheer for the guys who are from Wisconsin and right now Stricker is the best of the bunch.

Stricker is always well mannered and I do respect that.

I'm not sure I have a favorite, there's pretty much something I like about all of them, except Sergio.

Haha, Westwood pisses me off with his arrogance.

Fowler.Probably because we have the same interest's off the course.

Fowler really has it figured out, he makes millions in Sponcors without even winning. But yes, I like Fpwler too and would to see him on the Ryder Cup next time around.

Oosthuizen is something to watch when he's playing well, and has the best swing in the game IMO.  He doesnt plan in enough American events though.

Nothing compares to watching a tournament when Tiger is in the hunt and playing well.  Even if you hate him, you cant deny it.

Not even sure I have a favorite but they're a ton I like.  I like Rickie Fowler because he seems to go to the beat of his own drum, doesn't care about all the people who bag on him for the way he dresses, and is very interactive with his fan base, seems like a genuinely good guy.  I like Dustin Johnson because he's an actual athlete (can make a full swing on a balance ball, and can dunk a basketball pretty damn good as well)  Nick Watney is another guy I like, read somewhere that he had Butch Harmon blasting rap music during one of his golf lessons.  Also a huge fan of John Daly, and have a ton of respect for Tiger and Phil as well.

El Tigre. Started playing golf in junior high after seeing him win the 1997 Masters. Ended up playing on the golf team in high school and still love playing to this day. Probably wouldn't be a golfer today if I hadn't been drawn to the game by Tiger. I played basketball and baseball as a kid.

Tiger just because.

As for the rest, I respect a ton of guys. Stricker, Watney, DJ, Fowler, Kuchar, KJ, Ernie.

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
