    Better than Texas?

    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

    Why Crenshaw over Casper? Casper had 51 Tour wins and 3 majors. Crenshaw with 19 and 2.

    Kansas.

    Tom Watson. Born in Missouri, but played golf at Kansas City CC, which is on the Kansas side of state line. Lives on Overland Park Kansas. Yes this one is Debatable but he is in the Kansas golf HOF.
    Gary Woodland
    Matt Gogel
    Jug McSpadden
    Jim Colbert went to KState, born in NJ. Colbert Hills in Manhattan is his design, I have seen him hanging out there playing golf. Has strong ties with KState.
    Grier Jones. PGA rookie of the year. Solid player back in the 70’s.

    The list of great golfers from Maryland is pretty short. In no particular order -- Donnie Hammond, Fred Funk, Mark Carnevale, Jim Estes. Fortunately, our mountains aren't very tall.

    That would be Brad Faxon, Billy Andrade, and Dana Quigley from the biggest little, Rhode Island. I'm guessing there are a few lesser known but my interest ends here.

    Ohio might be something like:
    Nicklaus, Weiskopf, Harbert, Shute

    Nicklaus and Weiskopf are obvious, but I would argue that there are better choices for the other spots. Pete Dye is from Urbana, and Bill Powell, the first African-American to build and own a golf course, is from Canton. I'd argue they should be on there before Harbert and Shute. I had to google Harbert, and I only knew who Shute was because he was my club's first pro.

    Tony Finau
    Bruce Summerhays
    Daniel Summerhays
    Bob Betley
    Many affiliates via college and such like Johnny Miller, Mike Weir but home grown the list is kinda small with true tour success.
    The club pro list is very strong here though and the success they’ve had nationally in the PGA events.

    LOL, like I said golfers don’t deserve chiseling and Zach would be way more deserving than Fleck, heck amateur legend in his own time Eugene Elliott more deserving than Fleck!

    Love Hayden but Kinnick only on a Mount Rushmore type monument.

    Why Crenshaw over Casper? Casper had 51 Tour wins and 3 majors. Crenshaw with 19 and 2.

    Billy Casper all day every day over Ben. Casper is the most over looked under appreciated great player ever. Full stop.

    By that measure Kathy Whitworth blows away both Casper & Crenshaw; 88 tour wins most of PGA or LPGA. Still love Ben though... Hook 'em Horns!
