Ok...watching the Open with a bit of time on my hands...and this may well have been done before on here, but I had a cursory glance and couldn't find anything...if you were to build the perfect player, whose characteristics and components of their game would you like to have as your own? Now, I fully expect that some of you will answer "Tiger" for everything. That's ok...but probably makes for really crap reading. So maybe try to be a little imaginative.

 

So I'll start us off...and to be honest, whilst I was thinking about this in concept...this will be pretty much off the top of my head in execution. Much like my golf game, I suspect. So here goes :

 

Driver : Koepka

Fairway metals / hybrids : Stenson

Irons : McIlroy

Wedges : Z Johnson

Bunkers : Poulter

Putting : Fowler

 

Have a crack.

Driver: Greg Norman

Fairway woods: ?

Irons: Tiger

Wedges: Phil

Bunkers: Donald

Putting: Stricker

 

Rory still has the occasional horrid left which means it's Tiger for me.

You got me re-thinking on 2.

 

Phil for the wedges, and I was thinking Donald for bunkers as well. Poulter got over the line when I followed him around on the last day of the world cup last year. Tyrell the spud was his partner...the number of shitt lies that he left Poulter in bunkers was gobsmacking. And fortunately for them, he was friggen awesome. But Donald was my first thought.
