Which tour players smoke cigerettes?  I pretty sure Spencer Levin, but who else?  I saw Nick Price back in late 80s earlier 90s down at Pleasent Valley and he was smoking during the round.  Just curious, thats all

Daly.  Lickliter.  Angel Cabrera quit but I remember the one US Open he won he was basically chain smoking.  A lot of the caddies smoke.  A ton of players use dip or chewing tobacco.

TDO- you know I dig your posts but cmon now, you do not know that in the least...

The last thing I want to do is revisit that cigar thread from last year. Very quickly I will add that while I'm happy they changed the smoking laws in restaurant/bars pretty much everywhere, smoking outdoors, especially on a golf course, us absolutely fine with me..

Signed, Hogans 71. Cigar smoker while playing golf...

smoking is way worse than dipping health-wise.  Spitting is gross I guess.

I would guess Anthony Kim smokes, maybe not cigs though.

DL3 smokes cigars. although have never seen him smoke whilst playing. Hogan used to chain smoke, he even endorsed Lucky Strikes. Palmer, Watson and Nicklaus all used to puff too. Dustin Johnston is one who I think chews tobacco from the current crop of players.

saying a ton dip is a little vague and exaggerated, and no one with a head on their shoulders would ever do it.
