The PGA Tour had a standout contender this week as the player easiest to root for.
And that is none other than Brian Morris, the 54-year-old professional who has been battling terminal brain cancer for two years.
He got an sponsor exemption this week to peg it up at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Club.
Morris is the head professional at Bermuda's Ocean View Golf Course and has so far had 32 chemotherapy treatments.

"We all know we're gonna go," Morris told the PGA Tour official website.
"But to be told you're gonna go you tend to focus on it.
"Not that I'm afraid, it's just that I don't want to.
"You worry about leaving your kids behind, your wife behind, you don't want to go.
"So when I'm on the golf course for that four hours, you don't think about that.
"It's all about what shot you're gonna hit next and honestly I think it's been a saviour for me, my outlet is golf".

Morris told the official website he thought he initially had vertigo before his diagnosis.
Now, he said, he is "a year past my expiration date" and he's happy with that and finds tranquility in golf.
Morris golf a huge cheer when he pegged up his first tee shot.
When play was suspended because of bad light Morris was 15-over par through 15 holes.
Play earlier had to be halted because of the brutal winds.
