Don't mean to devalue his wins as certainly Charl is playing great golf right now. Any double digit win is impressive. He's dialed in for sure and when healthy is potentially a top 10 player.

I think there is some merit to both sides.  On the one hand the back to back wins means he's playing solid golf, regardless of the field.  Of course the OP seemed to be making a big deal about the margin of victory, which isn't very impressive considering the weak fields.

I'm not sure that's a good point... Both the US and British Opens are opens and really anybody can get into them if they qualify. On the other hand, Tiger's tournament only allows a "select number" in (18?). Does that mean that his tournament means more than either the British or US Open? Obviously the major means more.

 

You are right that it's not his fault that it's a weaker field, but that doesn't really matter... the fact is that it IS a weaker field and so it doesn't have as much meaning. As I said earlier, it's awesome that he won, he's playing great golf right now, but 2 wins in a row now is not the same as 2 in a row during the regular season.
