This could/should be Nikko. Unfortunately there’s a difference between being passionate and letting that fire show and creating situations that make people uncomfortable.

He had some strong finishes in some big events this year, I’d like to see him consistently in the running to shake things up a bit.

Pro side just has way too few players for this. Let's revisit this thread in 10 years.

If Randy Savage played DG we'd be on TV.

We'd also hate going to the local course to get a round in.

Things are completely fine. The culture isn't too PC. It's filled with people who are easily butthurt on BOTH sides.

Can't make a bad joke? Butthurt. Can't deal with another persons opinion? Butthurt.

Destin is the number 1 seller these days.

Can you imagine playing doubles against a tag team of Macho Man and Hulk Hogan while Miss Elizabeth caddied?

Not quite the same, but I remember almost 20 years ago, watching Scott Stokely at the USDGC, and being struck with how easygoing and friendly he seemed, compared to Climo, etc. Perhaps it was just that day, and he wasn't normally like that.

But it seemed like a good combination for a fan favorite, had there been more fans: fun-loving and an amazing talent (distance, in his case); a tendency to be almost, but not quite at the top, so someone to root for; and humor (his video for an autism fundraiser a few years ago was hilarious).

Simon seems like the latest with similar temperament and skills.

We've got lots of characters on tour. Don't be upset if they reel it in and act as professional as they can during the interviews.

Those interviews are about the only real exposure people get outside of social media.

They would lose to Ricky and Paul setting up this scene the following year.

I was thinking the same, but don't follow the top pros, and particularly the videos, close enough to know. His trick shot videos are attention-getters, though, making him seem like an outside-the-standard-box player.
