It’s baaaack... and it’s a doozy. For this year’s edition of our always-revealing GOLF.com Anonymous Pro Survey, we protected the identity of 52 card-carrying PGA Tour players so they could speak candidly about the hottest topics of the day.
In return, they gave us their unfettered takes on everything from Tiger Woods (yes, he’ll win more majors) and Donald Trump (still popular), to driver testing (inadequate), backstopping (is it cheating?), best and worst Tour venues (sorry, TPC San Antonio), and favorite and least favorite playing partners (scroll down!). They even told us who is the most famous person in their contacts (looking at you, MJ).
Polling was conducted at the Safeway Open, in September. Over five days, we asked each player 46 questions. Among the respondents: 30 Tour winners, three major winners and 15 players who have made a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup team.
The mic is now theirs…
HOW MANY TIMES LAST SEASON DID YOU WITNESS A PLAYER KNOWINGLY BREAK A RULE AND TRY TO GET AWAY WITH IT?

Four times: 0%
Five times: 2%
“A few. More than you think. Always a hazard drop.”
“Zero this year, but last few years about five.”
“In person or on TV?”
