    Rory McIlroy
    Bryson DeChambeau
    Brooks Koepka
    Justin Thomas

    There are more, but these guys are well known on the tour.

    I hope she has a 'happily ever after'. There were plenty of on-line creeps who made her life difficult.
    Also, Bubba Watson is well past Young Lion - plus not playing so well anymore

    Little known fact: Rickie Fowler's grandfather is Japanese.

    OK, but he crafted the Shot of the Century at the 2012 Masters!

    Shot of the century, IMHO, was by Tiger Woods at Torrey Pines back around 2001 on the 15th hole. Hit it on the green from the right rough - about 15 feet from the pin. Doesn't sound like much but the shot was so hard from where he was you had to be a pro golfer to understand how great his shot was.

    I must defer to you, but hooking a wedge 45 yards onto the green seems the more outrageous of the two.

    Not even comparable to what Tiger did.

    I've always thought Phil's 2nd shot at 13 at the 2010 Masters was the best shot ever.

    don't forget Sarazen's double eagle in the '35 Masters, but then I'm prejudiced because I was there to see it, like hundreds of thousands of others.
