Name a professional golfer whose first name begins with the first letter of the previous last name.

PGA,LPGA,Nike and amateurs in major tournaments are fine.

I'll start with Vijay Singh.

I guess I must be...I just really enjoy Sunday at the Masters, no matter how it turns out (watching it live in 86, when Jack won for the sixth time was like as good as it gets)....I think it is the best tourney to watch, better than the US Open...

So, let's go with three time Masters champ...

Boring? I didn't think so. No great comebacks, but it is always a pleasure watching someone NOT choke, which is what Bubba managed to do! I think having Tiger in the field, normally prowling near the top, has spoiled us.
