How in the world can anyone claim to be serious about golf, and then completely ignore 50+ strong wins when evaluating Tiger's career?

 

This thread has a pretty specific title. Perhaps that's how or at least why they're not talking about them here?

I say "yes" with the caveat that he needs to make love to his putter more often. She is apparently a jealous mistress when it comes to Tiger, and abandons him easily.

I meant in general. This isn't the only place where "18>14" is considered insightful analysis.

One of the PGA wrap-up shows last night had some experts talking about Tiger's dismal last four years, as if his 2009 POY season didn't exist; all they cared about was that he hadn't won any majors since 2008.

Todd Hamilton can have one hot week and win a major. He'll never win POY. I don't understand why people put more thought into picking the best player of the year, than the best player of all time.

Who cares? This thread isn't about POY or regular PGA Tour events. The GOAT thread can include commentary outside of the major talk.

 

And Tiger's said himself several times that the regular events don't mean as much.

 

Stick to the topic, please.

To get back to the topic of the thread:

 

He's playing terribly today but he's still in contention, and always seems to be at the majors.  Yes, he'll win at least five more to pass Jack.

I'm this close || to changing my vote to no.

If I knew he would be tied for the lead after 36 holes in half the majors he plays in for the next five years, I'd place a pretty large wager that he'd ultimately beat Jack. Strange to see him struggle in these third rounds, though. He was playing pretty poorly today, and not just by his standard. I think the delay was about the best thing that could've happened for Tiger.

I say yes, hes gotten himself in contention with a new swing, it's just a matter of time.
