Also Simon Hobday, never played with him but watched him on the range a few times.

For non tour Pros, Mike Bennett of 'Stack and Tilt' fame takes some beating. Had a days Clinic with him a few years back and it was quite breath taking

The easily most aestethic swing I have seen is that of frenchman Raphael Jacquelin. It looks even better live than on TV. Stenson was something of a disappointment.

Favorite: Fred couples...so fluid, almost an art.

Played a round with Jerry Anderson in the early 90's (won the '84 European Masters) and he ho hummed a 65 for the day.

I went to The Memorial back in 86 and remember being impressed by virtually everyone.........but watching Tom Weiskopf hitting balls was a thing to behold..........majestic is the word that comes to mind!
They're all REALLY good!

Both were pretty impressive.
Wish I had the opportunity to see Ben Hogan .

One guy who’s actually phenomenal and I’ve seen him and DJ a bunch of bunch of times at the Canadian Open. I’d say he’s better would be Graham Delaet, but he also had a short game worse than many scratch golfers I know. Not sure if he’ll ever get that worked out.

Been to quite a few events so I've seen just about everyone to vary degrees. (I've never seen Tiger in person. hope he qualifies for the Match Play!)
A few who stand/stood out:
Boo Weekley (watch him hit irons on the range if you get a chance)
Vijay (his warm up includes hitting 75-100 yard shots with one hand better than most can do with two)
Rory driver, DJ driver - hard to stand out against the elite of the elite, but they do.
Ian Woosnam - saw him the year he won the masters, 1991. followed him for 9 holes and he hit the pin twice

Now I recognize my dad was probably being very "in the moment" and that Jack was a lot older at the time, so I took that with a grain of salt. But my dad went to way more events at the time than I did, and the way he phrased it, in his mind he was convinced.
Since I was an adult and started going to the API each year, I was surprised by Jason Days ball flight in 2016. Even higher than I anticipated it would be. Rory struck it pretty well when I was watching as well.

Tiger’s drives sound different and would get up into the stratosphere!
