Thank you or perfectly illustrating the mind-set that eschews critical thinking and looking at the whole career in favor of elevating one statistic over anything else. And yet I will BET that you never considered Walter Hagen to be the GOAT when Jack only had 10 majors.
I think that there is a discussion in Hagen having 11 majors > Jack at 19 or Tiger at 14.
the discussion is along the lines of Hagen played won on the pro tour from 1914-1936; the Masters did not begin until 1934 and there were 8 majors that were not played from 1915-1919 due to the war to end all wars. So in the 16 years of his prime (when he won majors) there were 40 majors that were held and Hagen didn't play in 5 of them (I'm guessing due to travel). So he won 16 out of 35 majors - translate that into today with 4 majors and schedules/air travel to the British and for 16 years @ 4 majors per year and winning 30+ % you get the equivalent of 20 modern majors.
I figure that is as strong a mathematical "proof" as the earlier posts about strength of competition.
And for what it is worth, by the time this argument is settled, there will be a younger superstar that will drive a whole new generation to prove that the young star and tour are the greatest ever.
