Exactly, back in the day a good number of golfers were overweight (almost like the Pro Bowlers tour). These days they actually look like athletes. The field today is filled with very good young golfers, which is a tribute to where Tiger has brought the game. (both from a physical as well as monetary standpoint)

Yes, he will.

Next year.

As well he was playing early in the year, I thought he'd win one this year too. There are just too many good players these days and more who seem capable of handling the pressure. It's going to take more than just consistency to win a major. I'm sure Tiger will hit on a major or two over the next few years in which he is at the top of his game and takes home the trophy, but he's not far enough ahead of the field any more to win them with regularity.

Starting to believe if he doesn't win this year, he won't win another.

Yeah. The clock is ticking. I hope he gets it together this year.

That's like saying the top of the Big Ten historically has been stronger than the SEC because Ohio St and Michigan have won more conference championships than anyone in the SEC. In any case, Palmer's last title came in 1964 and Jack's first came in 1962 so they barely overlapped. Watson came in on the back end after the other guys on your list had faded. A comparable list of multiple winners (3+ wins like Casper) in the Tiger era would be Mickelson, Els, Singh, Payne Stewart, and Padraig Harrington. When it's all said in done I'm sure you'll be able to add McElroy to that list.


I see your point, but I don't think (outside of Mickelson) , the others you named are not in the class of those I named. As far as your comparison (BIG to SEC) I think the only way to answer that is like this. When you have two powerhouses like OSU and Mich were for years, even with a deep lineup of other teams it wouldn't matter. Those two would be the perennial champs. That's the way I see it with Tiger and Jack. ....Yes, there may be more good golfers out there today...but those at the top are not good as those at the top when Jack was playing. Therefore, he was facing Hall of Famers in every major event. Those I named are considered among the all-time greats of the PGA......I don't see that many HOFers today, yet.


Tiger changed the way the PGA designs their courses.

He's so strong and muscular that he's forced players to weight train harder.

Tiger is now facing MUCH more physically gifted golfers then Jack ever faced.

Yep. His continuing back problems may end any chance of him catching Jack.
