Most of the big name players probably fly on private jets.

Tiger Woods uses netjets BBJ, G-V, & G-IVSP (TRW Ventures)

Phil Mickelson has his own G-II N800PM

Greg Norman a G-V N1GN

Arnold Palmer a C750 N1AP

David Duval uses flexjet LJ31 & CL604

Vijay Singh uses execjet C750

Nick Price a G-III N57NP

These are just to name a few.

My uncle, David Munce is Glen Day's caddy, and sometimes they charter a business turboprop (King Air or similar), but they mostly fly AAmerican AAirlines First Class.

No borrowing a bbj for Tiger. He owns a share in it from execjet! Must be nice to be able to pick a bbj one day or change your mind and use the G-V he own a share of.

I believe Tiger at one time also owned or leased a Citation X (750).

Hopefully none fly like Payne Stewart...

What a terrible tragedy that was, the Pinehurst golf community is still reeling from that hit, mention his name and you are almost sure to elicit some local's teary-eyed memory of Payne. What a great golfer and an even better person. God bless.
