This may have been done before now, but I thought it would be fun to hear from all the posters as to their favorite players over the years. I actually never saw two of mine play in person or on live TV, but I've read volumes about their careers. Here are mine in order. Who are your favorites?
1. Ben Hogan
2. Seve Ballesteros
3. Ben Crenshaw
4. Walter Hagen
5. Payne Stewart

Don't really have anyone else. Those are in order who I have gotten into. There are some other folks I like, but none as much as I like these guys.

I was only a casual golf fan until ~5 years ago so a lot of younger players for me. I'm recently hooked on the LPGA and Lydia Ko knocked Matt Wolff out of my top 5.

1) Tiger Woods
2) Rory McIlroy
3) Colin Morikawa
4) Lydia Ko
5) Victor Hovland

Nah. I mean 1 vs 2 isn’t close, but I acknowledge and respect what all five of those people did for the game in their era. Even if some of them wound up being a jerk course designer haha
