I've done a fair bit of ranking in the past week, whether it's Dustin Johnson's best shots of the week or Shane Lowry's biggest career moments.

But this ranking is too important and monumental for me to take on alone.

Let's take a look at some of the best beards in golf, in honor of U.S. Open leader Shane Lowry. But I need some help.

So here, presented without comment, are seven of the best beards in golf. It's up to you to rank them.


Our first entrant is Andres Gonzales, the representative for mustache-wearers worldwide:



Next is Boo Weekly, whose beard seems to have aged him several hundred years:


Then we have Graham Delaet, who probably has the most famous beard on the PGA Tour:


A social media favorite would be Andrew "Beef" Johnston, who's beard-game was so strong he was mistaken for Lowry:

Thomas Bjorn brought a beard worthy of the list to the 2014 Ryder Cup, bearing resemblance to another famous beard:

Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram who has the best beard in golf!
