About This Quiz

Can you tell Sam Snead from Ben Hogan, or Annika Sorenstam from Nancy Lopez? Sure, everyone knows who Tiger Woods is, but could you recognize this legendary golfer from just a single image? Step up to the green and prove your pro golfer IQ with this quiz!

Anyone can swing a golf club or score under par at the putt-putt course, but it takes significant skill to keep up with the world's best golfers. These pros not only have the physical talent and finesse required to sink a shot, but also maintain a mental toughness to remain in the zone through 18 holes. There's a reason why Tiger is such a legend - in a sport that typically takes years to master, skewing the average age upward - a young pro like Tiger or Michelle Wie is an extreme rarity. 

Of course, you don't need to be a phenom or devote an entire lifetime to golf to reap the benefits and joy of the sport. A 2016 study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine estimates that even recreational golfers can burn 500 calories playing a typical game. Players also enjoy improved cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic health, along with social and mental health benefits. Above all, despite its many challenges, the game offers plenty of fun.

Think you know everything there is to know about the best players in the game? Take our quiz to find out!
