The Good Guys of the PGA Tour
By mustang6560 on 8/6/13
Steve Stricker is Mr. Good Guy.
GolfDigest recently published its "Top Good Guys" list, which formally ranked the good guys on the PGA Tour.
The good-iest of good guys is semi-retired Wisconsinite Steve Stricker. Brandt Snedeker, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, and Graeme McDowell round out the top five. The next five include Joe Durant, Adam Scott, Bo Van Pelt, Rory McIlroy, and Zach Johnson. Despite buying dinner for 60 strangers, Bubba Watson didn't crack the top 30. I guess his act of kindness was a day late and a dollar short.
Is anyone else not surprised that only four of the top 10 good guys have won a major championship and only one (Rory) has more than one?

These lists are a bunch of drivel.
Public image rating, who cares? Advertisers?
Someone actually came up with a metric to measure how good of a person a player is huh. That is soulless and wrong. Who the hell thinks that way. This GD crap is especially lousy lately. I mean, this GD magazine, it's barely fit for pooping on. GD editors with their inane GD stories. Am I right or am I wrong here.
About the Bubba thing, trying to win fans by buying them a burrito is pretty pathetic and insecure. Most golf fans are tired of his "S" and I think he's starting to catch on to that.
Jimmy crack corn...
geez beef. i'll say your right. Bubba though did something nice, no need to try and analyze why he did it.
Beef, I'm going to play Dyker Beach Park again sometime Sept 19 thru 22, I'll spring for a Burrito for you if you want to play?
Banker, you need to learn how to question everything IMO. If I walked into a chopotle and happened to see a person there who was picking up everyone's tab I might say, How nice. But the fact that this little 'gesture' been blasted out on twitter and the internet makes me wonder. Why would you assume that something like that is done purely out of niceness. What do you base that on? Watson is a guy who makes a good portion of his living off his public image (which took a pretty good hit after those antics at the Traveler's). IMO it is healthy to question such things--try to see behind the facade.
Falcon, we'll see. I might be playing in a tournament at that time.
Scott Shields says:
Follow the lead of CNN and quit asking questions. If something is in writing it's the truth and there is no other information to be found other than what is provided.
I'm w/ Beef... the gesture is nice, but the motive behind it was likely a good way to get some good pub.
Motive, haa - this a murder investigation?
Whatever, I think Gerry owes me a beer & a burger for beating my man oosthuizen at the Masters. (He missed the putt - you gotta make the putt to glamorize the shot. Nothing's changing my mind on that. My friends have already tried.)
*meant to say cheap way to get some good pub.
Matt McGee says:
Someone made a list of nice people. That should make everyone wary, if not downright angry. The motives behind the list should be questioned extensively and, if they are not adequately moral and ethical, the list writer should be banned from both golf and computer keyboards forever. The method used to formulate the list should be submitted to ivy-league universities for the closest scrutiny. If it is found lacking, a public apology should be issued by Golf Digest, and a refund should be issued for whatever percentage of the issue this article comprised.
What do they think they're doing? Publishing a magazine for entertainment purposes? Sheesh.
Torleif Sorenson says:
At least this is better than Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person in the World" meltdowns before MSNBC canned him. I'm beginning to think he has alcohol issues.
McG: Right on man.
Good guys dont finish first.....the winners are too busy working on thier game to be nice
