Would you rather see older tour vets or young guys win?

As long as the golfer who played the course the best wins I don't really care.       Except Patrick Reed.  I don't want him to win.

Definitely good to see old guys beat these punks! Is like when I crush my nephew at arm wrestling 💪!   Of course he only 9 years old but...

I love the variety of potential winners week in and week out.  I would definitely like to see some Sunday suspense though for sure.   These runaway style victories are a bit anticlimactic.    O

I don't really care who wins.  I'll admit that it's nice to see guys win that haven't won in years, or new guys get their first few wins.  There are some guys that come across as just all-around good guys that I root for and others that come across the opposite that I'd rather not see win.

Firstly a great win last week by Mr Cink, he was very impressive.

 

It’s nice when the more experienced players win, because often the have a story that comes with it. Whether it’s tragedy or loss of form etc. It gives us more insight in to who they are as a person. And can make them more relatable as you have shared part of their journey.

 

They won’t be there forever though. The players I grew up watching are either not playing competitively anymore, on the senior tour or no longer with us. 
 

But I really like some of the younger players, they are fearless on the course but also speak so well off of it. It’s been really refreshing.
 

It’s nice to have both, and amazing that the game still affords us this. But there is nothing wrong with having a few “heel” type characters of any age. There are still a few older players who fall in to this category for me.

 

 Who were your favorite players growing up?

I started to watch golf in 87 so it was Seve & Greg Norman mainly. I then moved on to David Duval.

The player with the lowest score deserves to win. Golf is not as limited by age as other sports. 

I wasn't getting at who "deserves" to win.  I am simply inquiring if someone prefers seeing the vets or younger players win.  And far too often in professional golf does the guy who I feel "deserves" to win actually does that week.

I couldn't have said it any better. Someone needs to figure out how to get him kicked off the tour.

That is really cool. I have not really checked out much of Greg Norman. He is too often talked about for what he did not accomplish rather than what he has accomplished. 

Greg Norman drove the ball farther and straighter than anyone for years.  With an old Eye-O-Matic X100 steel shafted(tipped 2”) persimmon driver and high spin ball the first half of his career.
