Got Woods, Mickelson and Nicklaus because people have actually heard of them. Got Johnson, Jones, Thompson and Green because they have common last names. Gave up. Saw that I missed Palmer, Mcllroy, Hogan and Couples... the only ones I'd heard of that I didn't guess.

I've definitely heard of Hogan. I listed him among the ones I'd heard of but forgot. Fuzzy Zoeller I also remember being in the news, didn't notice his last name before. Snead and Player I don't recall ever having heard of before. Snead sounds vaguely familiar but that may be because I used to have some neighbors named Snead.

Got Woods, Nicklaus and Palmer on basis of having heard of them. Common last names: Johnson, Jones, Green, Hamilton (I think I was thinking of Formula1) and Graham. So 10 total.

Am not sure which is toughest; having to redo this quiz every time it's reset. The winners from the 50s and 60s (bar the big 3 and a couple of others) are just not in my memory bank. Or perhaps the ladies tennis champions or all of the winners in each of the Oscar categories or another one that peevs me when I see it has been reset is the most followed twitter accounts...

I got 26 this time. Good for 1 point up until next year when this is updated. And some of that was cheating reading through the comments...
