Best Golfer names


#1

Just saying, wish this guy was still playing…

former head pro at Charlotte CC and Bay Hill. Teammate of Mr Palmer at Wake and #1 on my all name team…


#2

Chip Beck, Wiffy Cox, Dick Mast


#3

To make it better, they hold the Dick Tiddy memorial tourney for kids in Charlotte…Imagine the swag from that …


#4

Lotta great golf names out there or just names that are fun to say
Some of my faves: Johnny Vegas (obvi), Justin Rose, Fleetwood, Rory, Xander, Oosthuizen, Patton Kizzire, Ollie. Bryson DeChambeau is fun to say. I like saying “Patty Reed”, sounds like an irish pub.

But none of these names stack up to Ted Potter Jr. That guy crushes.


#5

Still love Ty Tryon being named after Ty Webb from caddy shack. Still the best golf movie of all time!


#6

I’m a big of “Fat Pat” for Patty Reed.


#7

Fatrick Greed could also be a name used by some…

The Barn Rat. Surely the greatest


#8

Bronson Burgoon.

(Also, been using “Pat Thicc Reed” recently.)


#9

I think my Dick Tiddy trophy is up in my parent’s attic from back in the day


#10

Jazz Janewattananond


#11

No love for Seamus Power?


#12

There’s a kid playing at Ole Miss names Chip Getz.


#13

No love for Dicky Pride yet huh?


#14

Kiradech Aphibarnrat aka the barn rat! He’s a current Thai professional golfer playing on the European Tour and he is a serious player.

Paula Cremer is also good one. Absolutely smashes or ‘creams’ her drives.

Jason Dufner


#15

Who?


#16

Nacho Elvira and Pornanong Phatlum are in the Honorable Mention category.


#17

Johnson Wagner simply for the fact he has two last names for a name.


#18

You just described half the tour…


#19

I’m resurfacing this thread, as I want to make a March Madness-style bracket to determine the ultimate Best Golf Name. Not sure how the seeding will work, I might put some real thought into it or I might just blindly throw the matchups together. Regardless, I guarantee we can get 64 great names, and then I’ll make a post with a shit ton of polls for people to fill out.

Your mission: Toss out any and all golfer names that you love to hear, say, shout in triumph, curse in despair, or mercilessly ridicule

I’ll get it rolling with a few of my favorites in no particular order:
Slugger White
Steve Sands
Spider Miller
Martin Slumbers (aka Marty Sleeps)
Rory McIlroy (simply because of the similarities to Roy McAvoy)
Joost Luiten
Tiger Woods
Cameron Champ
Chez Reavie (obviously pronounced shay ri-vay)
Babe Didrikson Zaharias
Se Ri Pak
Dottie Pepper
