This fun article contains an accompanying picture showing PGA Tour players in ‘Bond Mode’ that makes us shout YES!

Josh Sens from GOLF Magazine used the poll conducted by the European Tour to ask who would make the best Bond, and then added his own take to it. 

I think we’ll all agree that Jordan Spieth, “energetic, smooth and icy under pressure” could be Bond, but several choices by Sens for Bond and for Bond Villain raised my eyebrows. For example, which list would you add John Daly to?

Don’t miss Bond Villain Number 8 – Hilarious!

In honor of the new James Bond film, Spectre, which is set for cinematic release this Friday, the European tour conducted a poll to determine which player would make the best Bond. Henrik Stenson got the nod. But we think he should have to earn the role. Here are six other golfers who would make dashing 007s, along with another eight who fit the part for Bond villains.

1. Jordan Spieth

Energetic, smooth and icy under pressure, he’s everything Her Majesty could ask for. If only he’d stop pestering Q to design him a driver that can give him another 25 yards.

2. Phil Mickelson

Baccarat? Please. This left-handed Bond with an aw-shucks grin that melts women and men alike gets his rush from NFL spreads. In the climactic scene at the Caesars Palace sports book, he and gold-toothed casino magnate Johnny Bling place a billion-dollar head-to-head wager on the outcome of the Super Bowl. Bond prevails, then celebrates by signing autographs on the cashier line. As the credits roll, he nods sheepishly at the camera and flashes a thumbs-up.

3. Ian Poulter

Like 007, he’s never better when serving Queen and country, but that’s not where the similarities end. He’s also fond of fast cars, fancy clothes and extravagant gadgets, which have helped him out of some tight spots but haven’t been much use in stroke-play events.

4. Nick Faldo

His name is Bond. Sir James Bond. And he’ll implore Jim Nantz to repeat it on the air again and again. Bonus points for being exceedingly British.

5. Tiger Woods

In Tiger’s first turn at the role, 007 sets off in search of his mysterious doppelganger, who went missing in action sometime around 2008.

OK, not really. But directors love him for his Deniro-esque ability to work at different weights.
