Golf Legends Share the Lead at Bridgestone (Updated)
UpGoing into the final round at the Bridgestone Invitational the legends in question, Vijay Singh and Phil Mikelson, share the lead with one of England's' top golfers, Lee Westwood. And Stuart Appleby is right behind them. So nothing is certain this Sunday morning.
But what I want to know goes beyond Akron, OH...beyond this particular World Golf Championship event, to something more... visceral: which one of these two golfers is the most "popular"?
To some the answer might seem obvious. A friend of mine suggested that Phil would come out on top because "he's an American and he has a hot wife". And as trite as that may sound, maybe it's reason enough for some to choose Mickelson. However, I've encountered a fair number of Mickelson detractors over the years, and I know I'm not alone in my unwavering admiration for fabulous Fijian, Vijay Singh.
These two players are decidedly polarizing, and it's well known that they're not the best of friends. So, I want to know, once and for all, what you think. Not of their golf ability per se, I want to know which one you like better, it's as simple and as complicated as that. That's what I mean by visceral, so please vote, I want to get tot the bottom of this.
Update: Congratulations Vijay!!!
