How would you subjectively rank US golfers right now?

OK bit of a daft idea this one but lets have your top 5 current American golfers at the moment,. Purely subjective, based on talent, potential and overall "like-ablity"

1 Tiger 
2 Snedeker
3 Phil
4 Bubba
5 Dufner

My choices are pretty much the rankings atm but they all offer something in their personalities that I like. 

Tiger has the whole "can he beat Jack?" thing going on and let's face it he's the best talent in golf for the last 15 years.
Snedeker just seems like a nice guy and plays refreshingly fast and consistently well
Phil is Phil - gung ho and on his day better than anyone
Bubba is a goof but a daft one who never had a lesson and does everything his own way
Dufner is just solid, and seemingly unphaseable - and that cooky waggle

JPX 825 5 hybrid

You really need to get out more Pete. :shock: I like Rickie Fowler. He has his own style and seems his own man. I think he will mature into the best US golfer of his generation

I don't think I've really sat and studied this to great length, but......

I really enjoy it when Tiger turns on something special.  I don't care about his past or personal life.  When he turns it on, it's special.

I also like Snedeker.  I think the way he just gets over the ball and hits it is great.  Even his short, snatchy putting stroke is great.  And that's coming from the very methodical golfer I am.

To the other extreme, I really hate watching and waiting, and waiting, and waiting for Bradley to take a shot.  Stop, start, stop, start, spin the club, spin it again.  FFS man, is there any need!

I agree about Bradley. he really is painful to watch. If any club golfer was that slow he'd be hung, drawn and quartered!!.
I agree about Jason Dufner. I like the guy and he has the right stuff to win majors. he's also gone out of his way to play outside the States a lot, which I think makes you a much better player, not just throwing darts at the greens all the time.
