Anonymous surveys are always fun, especially in the world of golf in which few players will say anything negative against a competitor.

ESPN.com surveyed 103 tour pros early in the 2015 season, 21 of whom were major champions, and gathered their thoughts on myriad topics. The players came from 20 different countries.

Not all players answered every question.

What did we learn? Among other things, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson isn’t the most popular player on tour.

The results included:

Will Rory win complete the career Grand Slam this week? Yes 28, No 72

Will Tiger finish his career with 14 majors? Yes 64, No 38

Should the PGA Tour announce fines and suspensions? Yes 59, No 35

Should players who miss the cut get a stipend? Yes 28, No 72

_____ is in a fight in the parking lot. You’re not helping him: Bubba Watson 23 percent, Patrick Reed 11, Rory Sabbatini 9, Robert Allenby 9

Which pro needs to get the first slow play penalty in 20 years? Kevin Na 29, Ben Crane 26

Should the PGA Tour stop testing for marijuana? Yes 40, No 62

What do you fly the majority of the time, commercial or private? Commercial 75, Private 16
