I know I'm talking out of my ass but I can't help but feel that today's players, at least depth-wise, are much better than that generation's...

There's definitely more depth now simply from there being more people with access to the game, but it's very hard to compare generations in golf - different equipment, different conditions, different techniques, etc.  The advantages the modern player has (all built on the back of guys in the 50's and 60's) has greatly increased the perceived talent, but I think the same players who were great then would be great now and vice versa.  Talent is talent.

Yeah, I think the top 5 or 10 from every generation could compete, provided the equipment was leveled. But I think today's 10 through 100 would destroy every other generation.

Watch Jacklin's speech at the end, the part where he gets distracted by the plane in the sky is hilarious. SQUIRREL!!
