PGA Tour Draft: Who is your dream team?
Posted 11 July 2012 - 04:38 PM
What if Tim Finchem, the PGA Tour’s current commissioner, decided that it was time to change things up in the world of golf? What if he decided to make professional golf a team sport, and that all current professional players would be entered into a draft pool? Imagine that you’re the manager of the golf team that has the rights to the first overall pick in this new “PGA Tour Draft.” Who do you pick?
There would be lots of factors to consider when trying to select the best golfer:
Skill – you would want to select the player with one of the best skill sets; a golfer that has all the tools of the trade – driving for distance and accuracy, a good short game, a great Golf IQ, etc.
Age – since this is the beginning of a new league, it would be ideal to select a player that is still in his prime
Character – a player that has good character, stays out of trouble on/off the course, gets along with other golfers would be a great pick
Expected Salary – you also want to get a good deal, the best golfer for the cheapest price
Overall Team Impact – a combination of all the above factors
Taking into consideration these five factors, it’s time to make your selection. Who’s it going to be? Do you take the player that has had the most previous success in Tiger Woods? Or do you take a player like Rory McIlroy who has the most potential upside? Fan favorite Phil Mickelson would be a popular pick among golf fans, and help draw a loyal fan base to your team. Now it’s your turn to be the manager, and you’re team is on the clock. Who’s going to be your pick? Let us know on Twitter @TheRopeIt or by using the hashtag #GolfDynasty.

All-Time? I'm taking Tiger Woods, and it's nowhere near close. The man is to golf what Jordan was to basketball. If he were 3-5 years younger, now, I'd take him now. He's got 10 good years left in him, and while that's a long time to make money, it's not as long as golf careers are.
Matter of fact, I'm changing my original thought right now. Give me Tiger Woods. He still has time to win plenty. He's his own brand, and no one on the planet sells more golf equipment than he does. Look at what OTHER OEM's are doing. He puts an AD DI in play, and they're now using either a made-for variation or offering it at an upcharge. That's other OEM's. Nike is right there at the top in club sales with TMag, Titleist, and Callaway. It's because of Tiger Woods. Tiger still has the talent to compete and win on tour (as he's already shown this year). Yep, give me Tiger Woods, he has everything going for him.
