Donald Ross, Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Old Tom Morris 

Nicklaus and Palmer would be under construction and Tiger would be scheduled next.

My four would be:

Bobby Jones:  As arguably the founding father of modern golf in America, he deserves a spot.

Arnold Palmer:  Beyond being the quintessential ambassador of golf, he was the original "brand" in the sport.  He turned that umbrella in to hundred of millions of dollars.

Jack Nicklaus:  In his era, no one had the influence that Jack had on the game.  It is hard to say if Jack or Arnie had more influence on the explosion of golf courses built in the 60's and 70's, but I know of a dozen 9 hole munis close to where I grew up that are all gone.

Tiger Woods:  He is simply the greatest to play the game.  He changed the way it was played and brought millions to the sport.  Today he is "the" brand worldwide.  I would not be surprised if one day he becomes the logo.
