If you’re like us, the end of the NCAA tournament leaves a hole in your sports-loving soul.
Luckily, here comes the Masters. But whom to root for? If you're confused, let our Seventeen magazine-inspired personality quiz help find your perfect match! (Or, at least a lukewarm bond with a golfer who might share a characteristic or two.)
How do you like to spend your days off? A. Hanging out with my celebrity significant other and/or tweeting incessantly at him or her.

C. I use it only when I can beat the media to the punch.
D. What’s social media? In my day, we had ice cream socials!
How would you sum up your playing style? A. Athletic and composed. Unless I have a “wisdom tooth problem.”
B. Loose and relaxed. As long as there is some barbecue after the round, I’ll be fine.
C. Isn’t that for the media to determine?
D. I’m just happy to be playing!
If my friends had to describe me in one word, they most likely would say: A. Driven.

B. "Duck Dynasty."
C. "Rock of Love."
D. "Betty White’s Off Their Rockers."

D. It’s probably the same as your dad’s.
Which "Happy Gilmore" character are you most like? A. I would consider myself a mix between Bob Barker, Lee Trevino and the homeless caddie. I can’t be confined to just one character!

I tend to make social plans ... A. Over social media.

B. Heck, I could always use another one.
C. I already have a closet full of them, but I guess I could squeeze in another.
D. My other green jackets are pretty faded; I could use a bright green one.
If you picked ...
Mostly A's: You should root for Rory McIlroy. Your youthful enthusiasm, limitless potential, gregarious nature and relationship with a top female tennis star (right?) make you the perfect fan for Rory. So bust out your Northern Ireland flag and don’t forget to hit the dentist before play gets underway Thursday.
Mostly B's: Bubba Watson is your guy. Your down-home sensibility, social media savvy, silly sense of humor and love of all things redneck put you squarely on #TeamBubba. So play all two of the Golf Boys' songs on repeat and start telling those Jeff Foxworthy jokes. On second thought, for the sake of the rest of us, please keep the "you might be a redneck" jokes to yourself.
Mostly C’s: Really? Someone got this one? Well, you should jump on the Tiger Woods bandwagon. Your intense need for privacy, competitive nature, robotic displays of emotion and occasional off-the-course missteps ... well, basically they make you Tiger Woods. And why wouldn’t you root for someone so like you?
Mostly D’s: Your Internet use at your age is impressive! Because you are most likely old. So Tom Watson is definitely the golfer for you. Your love of late-afternoon dinners, CBS programming and naps makes you the ideal Watson fan. And, perfect for you, he should have an early tee time so you can watch his round while drinking your morning juice of prune.
