I don't have a favorite. Just like watching good golf. I would say I currently root for Ricky lately. But I would also like to see Rory get another major as well.

Jason Day, Hovland, Westwood, Hatton and Cam Smith are some of my favorites.  I should probably throw an American in there too so I'll add Fred Couples and Steve Stricker!

On the LPGA side it would be Danielle Kang or Minjee Lee.

Big fan of Max Homa! He’s pure comedy and I love how his swing looks so effortless. My money is for him to win a major in 2024!

Have a few that are on the older side like Adam Scott(sweetest swing ever) and Rickie Fowler who has overcome a long period of poor play with dignity and grace. Newer(younger) guys I root for would be Hovland and Tom Kim.

Probably like JT the best. It is probably more I like as much. Know these Guys & Ladies are good; real good!!

Do not like Mickelson as think it is time he moved on & shut up!! Norman has to be there with Mickelson as IMO Norman has bit off the Hand that Feed him!! 

The PGA Players & LPGA Players deserve to be Highlighted!! Pleasure to watch both.

With the new playoffs did your favorite guy make the top 70 or are they on the outside looking in?

Thankfully yes! I am rooting for Scottie as well as he is local for me and an all around nice guy.

i like quite a few of the players, probably my top 3 would be Rickie Fowler,  Rory and Scottie Scheffler.  I have recently spent more time following Sheffler and I like him quite a bit, well grounded young man who just gets it done.

For me it's Scottie Scheffler by a mile.  Love how he plays and, more, who he is.  My two girls (9, 7) even pull for him and ask about him.  Stewart Cink is #2 for me - I'm a GT guy and I also like his character.  After that, a few that are particularly interesting to me are: Bryson, Finau, Zalatoris, Cam Smith, Cam Young.  Matt Kuchar again since I'm a GT guy.  From previous eras, I loved David Duval and also pulled for Fred Couples and Jim Furyk ... I might even throw Phil in the previous era category of my fandom.

Damn this is a tough one.  I'd have to go with Brooksie I love the confidence and killer instinct he has.  Also a little bias since I know he was a baseball player.  But there are so many talented players.  Golf is in a great place.

I will break it down a couple different ways.   For young guys, #1 is DeChambeau.  Ever since he jacked that ball across the water at the Bay Hill I just love watching him.  For older guy around my age who I like watching on the Senior Tour, its Miguel Angel Jimenez.  One guy who I really liked watching who I think played well in some events, but then partied too hard, and has pretty much disappeared was Kiradech Aphibarnrat.

Tony Finau is one of my favorite golfers in the game right now. He’s a classy guy with an underdog story that I always find myself rooting for. 
The more Ricky Fowler has struggled over the past few years, and watching him push through the worst of his game to starting to find his groove again, the more I like him too. Still a humble guy, but you can tell how hard he’s had to work. Both guys are inspiring

Hard to say who my favorite player is as I love watching Rahm, Scheffler, and Fowler. The one rookie I like really watching is Sam Bennett.

Current: Tyrrell Hatton - can't get over the commentary. Joel Dahmen is a close second for the same reason -- if I were to follow someone on the course at a tournament, I'd pick either of these two over any of the bigger stars. 

Up & Comer: Brandon Matthews - this full video is great, but the 3:55 and 4:48 marks show what makes him fun to track (one is his interview, the other his competitor's):  

 

Former notables: (1) Steve Marino - big Monday qualifier guy, once shot 59 on a mini tour, and was a great guy when I met him. Fun to watch / pull for. (2) Camilo Villegas. Downside is he's a Gator, but I liked him before I went to FSU... he's actually the reason I discovered/met Marino -- won the opportunity to caddy for him (which was huge as my favorite golfer at the time) on Wednesday of the '07 Pebble Pro-Am, and Marino was paired up with us.

Fairway: :taylormade-small: Stealth2 Plus, 15* (adjusted to 14.25*) w/ Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 7X

Irons:  :titleist-small: U505 1 Iron (16*), T200 "Utility Build" 3 and 4 irons, all with Graphite Design Tour AD-IZ 95 X Flex, :titleist-small: T100S 5-9 with Nippon Pro Modus 120 X Flex (2021 MGS Test). These things are monsters. 

Wedges:  :vokey-small: SM9 46.10, 54.12, and 58.08, all with custom etchings & KBS Tour Masters-themed shafts, X-flex (CHA Post)

Putter: Total headcase and Putter Ho. Down to two main options in the rotation (one mallet, one blade), but have 4-5 by the basement putting green that might make it in the bag at some point this year... Mallet: :L.A.B.: Mezz XL 36" Orange; Blade: :L.A.B.: Link.1 w/Accra White shaft & :garsen: grip

I share the same pick in Victor Hovland, he's always smiling & seems to be a really good dude! Plus, super talented and I think it's just a matter of time before he gets his 1st major, already been so close several times.

Love the game, try to get out a couple times a week. Been at it for about 25yrs...still waiting to get better

I like Rory a lot.  Not primarily for his golf (he disappoints me alot but that is my problem) but for his character.  I am starting to like Tiger more as well.  Once again, because of the character he has displayed recently (not so much in the past).

I like to watch Jordan Spieth. I can relate to his game and like his conversation with his caddy. All time golfer for me is Fred Couples. I like his swing and demeanor. The man always looks cool even under pressure or on a Ryder Cup stage.

I'm a Rory guy myself. Love his swing, his power, his interviews etc. Just seems like a solid dude.

It's also not easy to live up to the expectations that come with being a child prodigy, and despite not winning a major in a long time, I think he has (and still hopefully has a long career and some majors left in him)
