Greatest Current U.S Golfer *Hint...Not Who You Think It Is.

Tom and Arnie and Jack and Tiger, that's who you're thinking...I know it.  As the fourth of July dawns many of us will think about this country in terms of BBQ, Beer and Fireworks.  As golfers, many of us will go to our clubs or local muni's and play in Flag Tournaments or Firework Scrambles.  I'd like to do the opposite right now and shine a light on a tour...
