VIDEO GALLERY: Tour Players and Their Favorite Music
Tiger Woods: Hootie and the Blowfish

Padraig Harrington: Eminem

Hunter Mahan: The Clash
As you probably guessed from the “Oh, Oh, Oh” music video where he raided David Lee Roth’s closet, Mahan likes to rock. In an interview with The New York Times, Mahan name-checked Linkin Park, Florence and the Machine and The Clash as favorite bands.
