Who is the most popular golfer in the world? (And who is overrated?!)

Who is the most popular golfer in the world? (And who is overrated?!)

We know who the best golfers in the world are thanks to the rankings but who really cares about that?

Who do we like the best? Who is the most popular with the fans whether it be their game, style, personality of a mixture. Who do you want to go and see or have a knock with?

The only way to find out is to ask you guys...

So what we'll do is run a tournament of polls over the weekend. We'll chuck the Top 16 players in the world in there and then 16 others who we think might stand a chance. 

Eight groups of four with two going through to last 16 before they play each other all the way to the final to determine who is the man (or woman!)

The people will decide and you know all the players will be watching!

Supposedly super cool and marketable but is Fowler popular with you guys?
