Each week, the editors of PGA.com post a question on the PGA.com Facebook fan page to create a discussion for our, 'A Quick Nine,' feature. The best answers we receive from our readers are then used to write the story. We decided to have a little fun here at PGA.com for Election Day. On Tuesday, we asked our friends in PGA.com Facebook Nation: If all professional golfers (past and present) were running for President, who would get your vote and why? As usual, you all delivered. We received hundreds of nominations and the results are in... It's a draw! Take a look at some of the best answers we received below and you'll understand why this was a deadlock. 9. Jason Dufner. I was a little surprised when I saw Dufner's name on this list... until I read PGA.com Facebook friend Brett Kaehne's explanation. Now it makes perfect sense. Facebook fan quote: - “Jason Dufner, best negotiating face ever.” -- Brett Kaehne 8. Fred Couples. Something tells me if Fred Couples were president, we wouldn't have a whole lot to worry about. Everyone wants to be Fred Couples. He's that cool. Facebook fan quotes: - “Freddy Couples. Because if he was president everything would be run as smooth as his swing and suits would be traded in the White House for slacks comfortable shirts and loafers!"-- Eric Newill - “Freddy Couples, he's just a smooth awesome guy!"-- Tony Miller 7. Phil Mickelson. Take about a man of the people. Have you ever seem Mickelson in person at a golf tournament? His interaction with the fans is second to none. He works the crowd like a politician! Facebook fan quotes: - “Does this really need to have an answer? Mickelson would be the best President. He's fair, honest, humble, caring. Now don't go making me send him a letter, begging him to become our next President."-- Lyn Hall - “Phil Mickelson and his caddy Bones. They stick together. Whether they make the right or wrong decision they still can share a laugh at the end of the day!"-- Edward Byczek - “Mickelson for sure because Mickelson is my maiden name... gotta go with Phil!"-- Cheryl Thornton - “Phil Mickelson -- he's fair-minded, can keep his cool, and has family values!"-- Tina Johnson Baker 6. Tom Watson. A five-time winner of the British Open, it's safe to say Watson's strong-suit would be foreign relations. Facebook fan quotes: - “TomWatson. Class from top to bottom."-- Eric Walker - “Tom Watson, always a class act! And, a straight shooter!"-- Gary Lazetera 5. Ben Hogan. A straight-shooter -- on and off the golf course -- Mr. Hogan wouldn't mess around. He'd get things done. Facebook fan quotes: - “Hogan... He'd tell it to ya straight. Conservative-minded and he'd work hard to get stuff done!"-- Anthony Malafronte - “Hogan. A hard worker from humble beginnings."-- Greyson Flowers - “Ben Hogan. He didn't talk much and when he did, people listened. He worked hard and it showed with victories. He led by example. It wasn't what he said he would do, it was what he did. He's a legend and his values and work ethic have stood the test of time. He is someone that I will learn from and respect until I play my last round."-- Patrick Bowman Nebraska Section PGA | 8700 Executive Woods Dr., Ste 100 | Lincoln, NE 68512 | Ph: (402) 489-7760 | Fx: (402) 489-1785 | www.nebraskapga.com
