You Figure It Out: A pop quiz for my readers

Consider, from a recent Bob Harig article at ESPN:

[Golf] loves the stars, loves those who dominate.  With Woods and Mickelson possibly out of the picture, who will do that?

Rory McIlroy is the obvious candidate, and he’s done more than anyone can ask to fill the void. He’s won four of his past 12 tournaments and has had four other runner-up efforts during that period, which dates to the Open Championship. He’ll go for the career Grand Slam at the Masters and will undoubtedly capture the attention of fans beyond golf.

But the Northern Irishman won’t make his U.S. debut for another three weeks at the Honda Classic. He hasn’t played in America since the end of September at the Tour Championship.

True golf fans follow his worldwide exploits, but do the casual observers?

Okay, what’s the problem with Harig’s line of reasoning here?

    Casual fans probably don’t know how dominant Rory has been as a golfer….The media/sponsors are the one pushing who is ‘THE STAR’…In the NBA it’s Lebron James, and they don’t let you forget it…….Casual fans SEE what the networks/touraments are pushing but not much else……..A casual fan would STILL tell you that Tiger Woods is the main golfer on the planet, and not much else…..

    I’d agree with the above.
