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.

Even though he's a bit cocky, he did shoot 65 today and posted an early number to shoot for. I think I've posted him before...

Stenson, really? Never much liked him or Kaymer..just so stoic, though his prayer to the golfing gods for his shot on 14 was quite amusing...let's go with another FedEx cup winner who has seen his fair share of hard times lately...

Brandt Snedecker

Wondering who will make the Ryder Cup, as a goodly portion of the US team is in not so good physical shape. I hope Tiger decides to rest and relax, and it looks like Dufner might be out for the rest of the year....If Kuchar can't make the call, due to the bad back, then I think the US is in some real trouble...

What a great finish to the PGA!! I was actually hoping Phil could somehow pull it out, and he almost tied it on that last chip on 18. But Rory's second shot on 10 was as good as it gets... Another contender this week, who ended up finishing tied for 7th...

The guy finally won a Major (actually the last two Senior Majors, and came in second today in the Senior Open), even though he couldn't do it on the regular tour. He's also finding Americans kinda like him...
