Our Favorite Tour Player Not Who you Think


Second most-asked question – after the standard “Do Tiger and Phil like each other?” – is who is our favorite Tour player? And the answer always surprises.
Truth is, financially-secure golf professionals have little in common with fiancially-challenged golf writers, and our favorites are usually players your off-the-shelf golf fan has never rooted for.
Thus we cheered Patrick Sheehan’s victory last week on the Nationwide Tour – a good things happening to good people kind of deal. Sheehan was at his best last year at The Barclays following a non-descript 70 in Round 3. Most players sulk after a tough round, but all Sheehan wanted to do was play golf.
“I can’t wait to get home next week to play,” he smiled. “I just love to play.”
