He even changed his name from his birth name, Chad Johnson to Chad Ochocinco because of his love for his football number but later changed it back to the original. On Twitter, he at times posts about his favorite comedy movies or things about video games such as challenging some of his followers to beat him in game of Fifa or Madden. Quite humorous!
@IanJamesPoulter: In fact, golf is lucky to have a man like him. He is really talented and staying powerful to consistently compete at the major tournaments, but as if that’s not enough, he has the personality to appeal to the public.

A perfect star to follow as he loves tweeting about his family, favorite sport teams and of course his wing.

He is also humble outside the arena but insistent on the ice, playing hard while indisputably enjoying each and every moment.

His excitement will blow your mind with funny English at times and his tweets are always honest.
