A) Jason Day or Stenson - I like Jason Day's swing and hes a cool guy in general.  He plays a high draw which is what I aspire to play and he's got a well rounded game when he's on.  Stenson is up there too because of his 3 wood, iron play and unbelievable ball striking

B) Tiger - no explanation needed

Current: Don't really have a stand out favorite player. i like the young guns... especially JT. also a big fan of Henrik Stenson

All time: Tiger. I would like to see another top player show the same attitude towards golf that he did... I feel like a few players have similar talent levels that he did, mostly DJ and Rory, but they don't have the same composure/ferocity/killer instinct. Spieth is probably the closest as far as mentality goes.

Difficult to say.  If we are talking about contemporary persons...I'd say Stacy Lewis.  Don't know why I find myself pulling for her...but I do.  Going way back...how can you not like Byron Nelson?  There are just too many; and I've never met any of them.

1. Jordan Speith: his mental strength and putting are what he does best

2. Seve Ballesteros: he showed great charisma on the course and it is amazing watching him play in the ryder cup back in the 80s

1.  Would probably have to be Spieth.  Young kid with a very mature makeup.  There are a few things I could pick on him about but I think he's great for the game of golf.  Came right when Tiger was on his way out.

2.  I have to say Tiger.  He and I are close in age and I watched him start to dominate as my game was getting better and better.  I only wish he could soften his fall from the top but I don't see it happening.  My second is Davis Love III.  In my early years he was the guy I always wanted to watch...I loved his swing and still do today.  Plus he's a great embodiment of what you want to see out of golfers today.  Very classy and respectful.

1. Spieth. We are similar in age, he's not afraid to show his emotions on the course, good family guy, etc. Close 2nd is Dustin Johnson. We have almost identical body types so I like watching his swing, he just hits the ball 50-80 yds further than me :whistle:

2. Tiger. Some of my earliest memories of watching golf were watching Tiger dominate in the early 2000s. I still enjoy watching highlights from him on YouTube.

Speith - when his putter is on, he's unbelievable.

Nicklaus Palmer Hogan Jones - the most successful player of all time IF you consider how short his career was, and he helped found and build Augusta National and The Masters, there is no greater tournament still!

    • I was thinking “liquid metal” was what someone meant to be “hot melt”.
    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’ 
    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox.
