    I don’t think what Tiger did to his wife was ok. But I also don’t really get involved in marriages outside my own and maybe direct family. Too many people cheat and lie for me to give it a second thought. He isn’t a woman beater, rapist, murdered, etc. That’s why I don’t hate him.

    Most are pretty cool, like 95% of the guys I’ve met/interacted with. Sergio is one who everyone hates, but is actually super nice. DJ is pretty blah. Not mean or anything, just legit seems to not give a fuck about anything. So doesn’t really interact with people outside his tour obligations. 

     

    Some people don't do media well, but as a viewer, he comes off as a bit of a dullard.

    I was shocked at how small Sergio was when I met him.  That is not a big man for how far he could hit the ball off of the tee at his peak.

    Favorite golfers:
    Freddie Couples
    Rickie Fowler
    Kooch (in honor of my brother)

    Least favorite golfers:
    Tiger
    Patrick Reed

    That's about it as far as least favorite.....

    BTW, I do admire Tiger for this domination over the years and his tenacity to get back to winning a major.  Never thought he would win one again.  I just think he is a pretty crappy human being. 

    That said, I simply do not understand golf 'fans' who only care when Tiger is involved.  I like golf for the sport, not because someone is having a good tournament.  That would be like not watching football anymore because someone like Payton Manning is no longer playing.

    Really? Why?

    I'm guessing because of the whole caddie ordeal a few months ago. Kuch is definitely in my top 10 favorite golfers.

    That's on Sergio, not Kuchar. Golf is a game of honesty and integrity, I don't begrudge Kuchar for not lying to fix Sergio's fuck up.

    Kuchar tried to give him the putt after he hit and and told the rules official that

    And once Sergio angrily backhanded that ball away, nothing could be done.

    Kuchar is the one who called the official over knowing what the ruling would be and then acted "shocked" when they wouldnt let him give him the putt. Sergio was in the wrong but it could have been avoided imo.  It was way more scummy to give the caddy 5k when you win 1.26 million dollars and you already make 40 million in endorsements per year.

    Not to mention that the caddie incident is on the caddie....if you don't like the deal, do not agree to it.

    Like: Woods, Fowler, Day/DeChambeau (sorry, couldn't decide)

    Dislike: Reed, Watson, Thomas

    I like Jason Day, too. His nagging back injury worries me.

    Kuchar does not make $40 mil per year in endorsements.

    I will agree that the caddie incident wasn't the best look for Kuchar, he could've saved himself a bunch of headache by throwing the guy $100k after the win. But, the caddie agreed to the terms going into the tournament.

    He did give him 50k after all the heat
