10 Golfers On Santa’s Naughty List

1 of 11

Santa Clause

Santa Clause

Everyone knows that before Santa Clause loads his sleigh and departs for a night of rooftops and chimneys, he has to first make a list and checks it twice. After all he has to find out who's been naughty and who has been nice during the year, so he can determine who gets a visit on Christmas Eve.

I decided to check in with the old guy to find out who in the world of Professional Golf would not have Santa Clause making a trip down their chimney this Christmas.

Santa indicated that although most of the players on the PGA and European Tours had made the good list and will get a visit from St. Nick, there were a few who found a way onto his naughty list. He was particularly upset with the what happened at Medinah in September, and most of the people on the bad list, had gotten there based on what happened at the Ryder Cup.

There were a few incidents throughout the rest of the season, he did take note of those, and duly added those names to the list.

So as Santa Clause gets the reindeer harnessed up for the long night, the following golfers will not need to leave milk and cookies by the fireplace, and will not hear the bells on their rooftops.

The following golfers will not be seeing Santa Clause on Christmas Eve.
