Few athletes in American history have ever been as victimized by the system as Hawkins was.

Half of the current Top 10 golfers in the PGA Tour today are Americans, including #1 Dustin Johnson and #3 Jordan Spieth. But while they are excellent golfers, none of them possess the star quality of Woods or Palmer that makes us watch TV on Sundays. Golf is still looking for its next American superstar and until then, it’s going to be in the back end of the Top 10.
