‘It’s Rigged’: Golf World Reacts as 30 ‘Nicest Guys’ on the PGA Tour Are Revealed

Golf is a gentleman’s game, and fans consider golfers nice guys. However, nice is subjective, especially this year with the rise of the rival LIV Golf Invitational league. For some people, players competing on the PGA Tour are nice guys, and LIV Golf players are villains, while for others, it’s the other way around.

However, Golf Digest recently interviewed over 120 golfers, caddies, and other staff present on the golf course. They asked specific questions and got the rankings of the top 30 nice guys on the PGA Tour. Moreover, their criteria were only for the current PGA Tour golfers and not any other league players.
