    I'd say he's the very best current player by a long margin and second all time to Jack. What he does when he's not playing doesn't matter to me much.

    I don't root for Tiger.  Not because of his personal life or aloofness towards his adoring fans or club throwing temper tantrums.

    I root for anyone else because I always pull for underdogs.  I'd rather see (fill in the blank) get his first major rather than seeing TW get his 15th.  All the better if at Tw's expense.  You go Y.E. Yang.

    Obviously, I am disappointed most of the time.

    He would have to be third then because Nicklaus could not touch Byron Nelson in his prime.

    Thanks andyson,

    Spot on with your comparison of a real golf pro vs Tiger. I am a veteran myself and got chicken skin just watching the video with all those wounded heroes playing golf and healing from their ordeal. Jack Nicklaus is sure a hero to all those vetarans using that American golf course,yet you don't hear him bragging about it. Thanks again for sharing this video with all of us golfers who love the integrity of the game.

    I wonder about his statement...I mean other than Jacks 18 majors, I think he finished 2nd in 20 majors?.

     

    Yes, Nelson was very good, as was Snead, Jones, Palmer...etc...but even if...say anyone eclipses Jacks major wins...is he better than Jack?

     

    \It's not auto racing, but if you gave points to then top ten finishers...hmmnnn;)

     

    But just too difficult to compare "era vs era" players, in any spot...but what makes me think Jack could definitely compete against Byron, was equipment was essentially the same, sans the ballata ball that came later (big factor?...maybe), and with the advent of new equipment since the early 90's or so, that required lengthening course ...you just cant compare ...unless you have computer model...lol.

     

    I say group the top 10 together,,,heck, was Aaron better than Ruth?...Bonds better than Aaron?  Softer balls in the 20's and 30's?

     

    But better pitchers in the 60's and 70's...Roids in the 80's on up!...lol!

     

    What makes us sports fans bicker like 8 YO's!

    Another very important factor when comparing players from different generations is the ball size. It changed from 1.62 to 1.68 I think in the 70's.

    It takes more skill to strike the smaller ball accurately, and of course it has less spin.
