An anonymous tour pro survey of 103 players, including 21 major champions, has revealed answers to prying questions like who's the slowest on tour and who they wouldn’t help in a fight
An anonymous tour pro survey of 103 players, including 21 major champions, has revealed answers to prying questions like who they wouldn’t help in a fight and whether the PGA Tour should reveal players who have been fined and suspended.
Other questions also covered whether Rory McIlroy would win the 2015 US Masters, and if Tiger Woods would land another major before he retires.
In the ESPN.com poll, 29 claimed Kevin Na is the player who most deserves a slow play penalty, with Ben Crane taking second place in the poll with 25 votes.
When asked “Should the PGA stop testing for marijuana use?”, 40 respondents said yes the tour should move in line with recent legalisiation of the drug in some American states.
But perhaps the question that is drawing the most attention from the poll is, “______ is in a fight in the parking lot. I’m not going to help him.”
Who is the least likely person to get help in a brawl on tour? That would be Bubba Watson, who received an impressive 23 of the 103 votes. Patrick Reed took home second in the vote on this one.
The recent Dustin Johnson injury-suspension scandal took the media by storm, and the players voting in the tour pro survey agreed more clarity is needed. To the question “Should the PGA Tour announce fines and suspensions?” 59 voted they should, against the 35 who said they shouldn’t, with nine choosing not to answer.
Interestingly, the voting pros didn’t vote in favour of Tiger Woods winning another major, or Rory McIlroy winning his Grand Slam in 2015.
Oh, and incase you were wondering, Ian Poulter was voted the best person to go car shopping with.
