Golf’s Greatest Generation is now an entire generation of players.
In honor of the milestone, we asked the people behind some of golf’s greatest players to reflect on the past and the future.
We asked golfers like Rory McIlroy, the most successful player in history and the most-popular player in golf history, who had a lot to say.1.
Jim Courier “I’ve always loved the game and it was just something I was always interested in.
I had this great time at school and then I decided I wanted to play golf.

When I started playing golf, I was kind of a little boy.

It started with golf, and I went on to be on the Tour, the Ryder Cup, the US Open and the Masters.”
Jason Day “I played in college and I didn
