A tournament win is on the line. A made putt will seal the deal. Who do you trust the most?

It’s a phenomenal question that’s not easily answered. For help, we reached out to PGA.com’s Facebook fans, who provided more than 800 comments.

Here are seven -- in no particular order – of the most popular answers we received, along with videos of these golfers demonstrating their poise in the most pressure-packed situations.

Note: We received several historical answers, but limited this exercise to active golfers -- and one special twist.

If we have to pick out of the tour right now?... Probably Jordan Spieth even though his putting has been shotty lately. If I could choose anyone, most definitely Tiger in his prime #mambamentality -- Garrett Butler
