I've always liked Kevin Na's game. It seems most relatable to me. we both have a slightly faster swing tempo and he's probably not that much longer than me so he's coming into a lot of greens with the middle and longer part of his bag. I know that's absurd to suggest because he's clearly a world class golfer and I'm not but obviously i'm going to struggle to relate more to someone like Brooks or DJ that have the firepower to just overpower a lot of courses.

honorable mention would include Kuchar for me as well but his swing is just so much flatter than mine and putting styles are totally different as well.

Is there a player you can most relate to that you enjoy watching?

    Btw Paul I remember you being a bit smoother than Na. He's got a lot of herky jerky stuff going on, weird follow through too.

    I always thought Nick Watney was a tall skinny dude with a smooth swing who didn't try to crush it.

    Ben Hogan. I love a properly struck golf shot and what can be done with a ball in the air. I like the semi-science of swing mechanics.

    I don't get excited about anything from 60 yards in, and putting sucks.

    Definitely Phil. Can hit some miracle recovery shots but also hit a tee shot 7 fairways over.

    Sergio or Adam Scott. Living in the Northeast I hit a ton of balls but can't work on my short game 5 months a year. And I already don't have the softest hands to begin with. So my rounds feature a lot of greens, many missed putts , failures to get up and down....often leading to spitting in the cup.

    One notable difference, I am better looking than Adam Scott

    I believe all that except spitting in the cup. No Canadian would ever be able to do that. Just too nice ! Lol.

    Anybody who hits a ton of greens , gets compliments on tempo and swing , has control of the ball and can’t buy a putt.

    A pro that doesn't practice, doesn't care about his swing, doesn't look for the "latest and greatest" in equipment, never hits a fairway and holes putts and chips from everywhere.

    I don't think such a pro exists.

    Haha you took mine

    Although I still play more than most of wrx not as much as I want. And winters are usually rehab or surgery.

    I thought AK got a lot of hype for the birdie fests and choked down grip. But his swing was very repeatable and thought free.

    Probably Kevin Na because we both have the ability to record a 16 on a single hole.

    I’d say Phil, I put it all over the place except the fairway off the tee and (sometimes) can scrape by after that to save the hole, other times I think I’m Phil and flop it over the green.
