About This Quiz

The history of golfing is as rich as that of any sport, filled with memorable eccentrics, startling talents and heartbreaking struggles. But if you've spent any time on the links (or watching the Golf Channel), you already know this! You've heard about legendary players like Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods, Bobby Jones and Jack Nicklaus. (Perhaps you've even read their biographies.) Through your studies, you've learned that each of these players has an amazing story, and you may have even wondered what it would be like to play a round in their cleats.

Some of these golfers overcame strong odds to become champions, while others dealt with adversity later in their careers. If you're curious about which of these players you'd get along with in real life, this is the quiz for you! We want to celebrate golf's greats by helping you figure out which one you're the most like. We're going to ask you about your favorite drink, putting game, dream caddy and favorite golf movie. By the end of the quiz, we'll be able to tell you whether you're a total Tiger Woods or Jack Nicklaus all over again!
