Brad Faxon reveals his top 10 putters of all time (with one staggering inclusion)
Eight-time winner on the PGA Tour, Brad Faxon has revealed his top 10 putters of all time in a post sure to provoke some strong opinions.
Faxon is widely considered to be one of the best putters to play the game and has turned his hand to helping pros on the greens in recent times – all of which make his list even more compelling.
The 59-year-old revealed his top 10 (and those who just missed out) on social media with the caption ‘Hope this doesn’t get me in trouble…’, with the most stunning inclusion being Rory McIlroy at number 10.

— Brad Faxon (@BradFaxon) May 5, 2021
1.Tiger Woods – ‘Made every putt he had to’
2. Ben Crenshaw – ‘Looked the best doing it’
3. Seve Ballesteros – ‘Looked second best to Ben’
4. Tom Watson – ‘Who can forget ’82 at Pebble?’
5. Bobby Locke – ‘Loved to hook ’em in’
6. Jack Nicklaus – ‘Hope this doesn’t insult him’
7. Jose Maria Olazabal – ‘So intense and simple’
8. Billy Casper – ‘A lot like Locke’
9. Bobby Jones – ’13 majors!!’
10. Rory McIlroy – ‘Call me crazy’
Runners up: Langer, P. Thomson, Player, Donald Roberts, Hogan Kite, Day, Pavin, Stockton.
It’s worth noting that McIlroy and Faxon have a working relationship together, which likely aids the Ulsterman here. McIlroy has finished 97th or worse for Strokes Gained: Putting in 4 of the past 5 years.
Other notables missing from the list include Jordan Spieth and Steve Stricker, while Inbee Park would surely have received a mention had the list included LPGA stars.
What do you think of Faxon’s picks, WRXers? Let us know who you would include in the comments!
Report: Premier Golf League resurfaces with several top pros offered lucrative deals
The Premier Golf League is back on, according to a report from the Telegraph UK, with some of the biggest names in the game receiving formal offers in the region of $30 million to join the breakaway Saudi backed league.
Per the report, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott, Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, and Justin Rose have all received offers between $30-$50 million to join the breakaway tour, which hopes to begin in 2022.
The proposed league would feature a Formula 1 style format, with 40-48 players playing an 18-event schedule in tournaments worldwide for lucrative purses culminating with a season-ending team championship.
The team concept format would see 10-12 players signed to teams and include managers, signings, and transfers.
Per Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has since told players at this week’s Wells Fargo that any player joining a breakaway tour will face immediate suspension and possible expulsion from the PGA Tour.
According to multiple sources @PGATOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan told players Tuesday night at @WellsFargoGolf that any player joining the Saudi-backed golf league will face immediate suspension and possible expulsion from the PGA Tour. Monahan taking this threat seriously.

A source of the Telegraph told the publication:
“This will all kick off in the next few weeks. It will be fascinating to hear how aggressive Monahan is with his language. The Saudis believe the tour can’t expel members and it could end up in a big legal fight.”
The PGA Tour’s ‘Player Impact Program’ had been seen as a push to quash any temptation for players to join a breakaway tour in future, but it appears that it has not had the desired effect.
Last year, Rory McIlroy stated that he would not join a Premier Golf League and hinted that Tiger Woods would also snub the potential breakaway tour.
Ian Poulter posts spiky response after being included on PGA Tour’s slow list
Though hardly considered a slow player, Ian Poulter has received a warning from the tour over his pace of play, and it has provoked the Englishman into issuing a cheeky reply on Instagram.
Poulter posted the message he received from the tour on social media, which revealed that he is currently over the pace of play limit of 45 seconds per shot by .569 of a second.
In addition, the 45-year-old let his feelings be known about the warning, comparing himself to a Formula 1 car, while also cheekily apologizing to his playing partners this week if he happens to be .569 of a second slow.
“I apologize to whomever I am playing with this week. This is the first time ever I have been told I’m .569 of a second slow. Sounds like some F1 cars. If I play out of turn then I am sorry. If I’m ready I am hitting.”
The PGA Tour’s Pace of play Observation list is a confidential list updated on a weekly rolling basis.
Per the new rules, those on the list will be monitored during rounds and after their first bad time, players receive a warning, followed by a one-stroke penalty and a fine for their second and subsequent bad times.
