Simple challenge.. How far can get you get down the official world golf rankings before you see a name you're unfamiliar with?

http://www.owgr.com/ranking

I only made it to #37.. Matt Wallace, thought I'd get past 100!

yeah i don't know who Matt Wallace is either. I feel like they should do some "uncle drew" style prank where they bring him to a course in a costume and he shoots like 63 with some chumps

I don't know Lucas Bjjerragaaaard either.

I always thought Eddie Pepperell would be a good name for like James Bond's butler, or something like that.

There's a french dude named Alexander Levy. I feel like it should be Alexandre Levie with accents on both e's

That's where I got to as well. Shugo Imahira was my next stop.

Given time differences here in NZ, I watch a lot of Euro Tour. Thought I'd do better.

You guys really need to watch the Euro Tour. Matt Wallace won 3 times last year and was unlucky to miss out on RC selection.

And he has a sweet swing!  I believe he is coached by the hirsute one - Robert Rock.

Wait, y’all probably don’t know who that is either...

I had to do it twice because as soon as I saw boring Justin Rose there at number 1, I fell asleep.

Thereafter, Shugo at #60 did it for me as well.

It wonder how far any of us would get with the Ladies top 100...

Shugo Imahira was the leader on the Japanese Order of Merit in 2018. He got a Special Invite to play in The Masters and also has a spot in the 2019 British Open.

John Catlin at #113 would be the first one I can't remember the face. He's an American that won three times on the Asian Tour last year.

Wait, now that I've done my research and know who he is, how much further down the list do I need to go?
swing is irrelevant, score is everything

just say NO.... to practice swings

Thats where I made it to, as well. Outside of the Nordea Masters, he hasn't really had many made cuts or high finishes on the Euro Tour, so I guess I'm not shocked to have not really heard the name much.
