Recently read an article talking about each states Mt. Rushmore of musicians. Got me thinking about the same thing for golf. I think Texas roster of Crenshaw, Hogan, Nelson & Trevino w/ Kathy Whitworth & Betsy Rawls on the bench is tough to beat. What's your state have?

    Here are my suggestions for Yorkshire in the UK (North, South, East, and West). I'm going by birth only, just like the old Yorkshire county cricket club rules, otherwise I would have included Colin Montgomery, who was raised in West Yorkshire and went to Leeds (spit) Grammar School.
    Designer: Alistair MacKenzie (West Yorks): Yorkshire-born, Scottish heritage, which should have made him the tightest sod on the planet.
    Player: Danny Willett (South Yorks): His pasty-looking face would be perfect for the white rock of Mt. Rushmore....
    Coach: Pete Cowen (South Yorks): Top-level coach. 'nuff said.
    Caddy: Billy Foster (West Yorkshire): I'd love to play a round with him. Think he played at Bingley St Ives, which is where I hit my first ever golf ball.

    I went for a mix of course designer, player, coach, and caddy, because the sculptures on Mount Rushmore are supposed to represent four different stages in America.
    Have I overlooked anyone?

    Pretty obvious I meant JC. The guy went back-to-back at the Andy Williams-San Diego Open back in the 70's, and that's hard to overlook.

    OK, New Jersey. I don't believe we have any of the top 10 golfers of all time but we have Pine Valley (#1), Baltusrol, Trump Bedminster, Seaview, Ridgewood, and many other great courses.

    Always thought that it was an odd move. And to move to the flatlander part of the state doubly so.ill still take him.

    I'd disagree with the Steve Flesch pick. JB Holmes and Justin Thomas are bigger names to the state. And if we're getting really nitty gritty Gay and Steve were not born in the state...

    I think Hale was around STL in the 80-90's. At least I'm pretty sure his son won some HS/JR events in the area back then.

    Pretty close but I'd argue Crenshaw over Casper cinches it. Of course I'm biased but not even playing the Babe Zaharias, Harvey Penick et al card
