Will the Tiger beat the Bear in the long run?
I don't think you would have found too many doubters on this question three years ago, but then...when Tiger was down in my neck of the woods (no pun intended) back in December 2009 on route to a superb victory in our "Australia Masters," his World got turned upside down. All from his doing of course.
I'm the same age as Tiger and was doing a Professional Trainee-ship when he won the US Masters in 1997 by 18 shots (you played well Tom Kite - Masters Runner up)! I have enjoyed watching, learning and being inspired by him over the years. When he won by 15 at Pebble in 2000, then at St Andrews by half a dozen or so then the British Open at Royal Liverpool where he won by 5 (won two years in a row by that number).
Nowadays I admire his skills, but I realize he is not "the Messiah" he wants was, but a just a genius when it comes to playing golf.
Things have changed and I don't think he will dominate like he used to, and will he win 5 more majors to break Jack's record?
Yeah I think he might just get there over the next 10 years. 19 or 20 I think he can do it. It will be close.
What do you guys think?
PS US Open 2008 was the last year he won a major.
