A GOLF BLOGGER SENT ME an invitation to FanIQ, which included a form to complete. One of the questions: Who is your favorite golfer?
I had to choose from a limited list that included Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Padraig Harrington and more. I was stumped. I admire many, even like some, but favorite?
There was just one woman golfer on the list − Annika Sorenstam. So I picked Annika. (I had to pick someone to get through the form.)
But I would have picked Lorena Ochoa had she been on the list. I think Lorena is an outstanding golfer and terrific person, a great ambassador for the women's game. None of the men inspire that kind of allegiance or likeability for me (although I do follow the men's game much more than the women's game).
Who is your favorite pro golfer? And why?
