I presume the "Jack" in the second sentence is Nicklaus, not Fleck.  If Fleck was all-around good at everything, he'd have won more than two tournaments.
Lee Trevino was doing that before Tiger was even born: https://books.google.com/books?id=IdsZUwS63KwC&pg=PA95&lpg=PA95&dq=%22lee+trevino%22+%22solid+ball%22&source=bl&ots=V-0YTBtnP9&sig=NXXgDNFkccQKEXgkn4pzf2OrdyI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CB4Q6AEwAGoVChMI4P7lq5KOxwIVhho-Ch1XywKm#v=onepage&q=%22lee%20trevino%22%20%22solid%20ball%22&f=false   
Among other difficulties with Jack's theory, is that the "equipment advances" of his era seem trivial compared to what had come before:  wooden balls to featheries to gutta percha to rubber core.  And similarly with golf clubs.   And why does it have to have a levelling effect?  Couldn't the advantage go to the few players best able to adapt to the new equipment?  Isn't that basically what Hogan did?  Developed a swing that wouldn't have worked with wood-shafted clubs...
Anybody remember Julius Boros?  He wasn't a soft hitter, either.  But slow on the backswing ...
 The problem with this is, Jack said this in 1996, just before a superstar took over golf.
Note to Ian Baker-Finch:   Ryo is one syllable.  He's not a Spanish river.
I know that, and you know that, but does Gary Player know that?
Yes, it's undoubtably more lucrative to caddy for Bubba than for Allenby.
 So, with all the black basketball players in the USA, winning Olympics and the like, why isn't basketball popular in Africa?  Such African teams as do exist are completely unsuccessful internationally. And basketball is a lot cheaper to play than golf.
What if they retire and make a comeback?
