Can you show me these stats? I'd be interested to see them. Because I've never heard any analyst claim that Woods' long game is better than his short game.

#1 last year in strokes gained - approach shots, #2 in strokes gained - outside 100 yards, #2 in strokes gained - tee to green.

Woods' short game has been the model of inconsistency for 3 years ... up one month, down another, genius one day, below average Touring Pro the next... While others reach their mature prime around Woods' age, Tiger prime seems past...

Including majors.

Yeah I guess your right tmac20. I suppose Adam Scott's beautiful swing has produced 19 pga& Euro tour wins combined and one major. When's his prime? Or did I miss it?

I never said Scott was better than Tiger Woods. Woods was the best player of all time in my opinion. But it wasn't because of his swing. It's because he's a winner and can perform better under pressure than anyone else in the game. He can get up and down when it matters, and sink unbelievable putts when it matters. But Adam Scott has a better swing.

Scott's swing might look better but it obviously doesn't work as well. His swing is like the Monet of swings. It looks good from a distance but the closer you look you realize its just not that special.

Scott's swing looks great from any distance. It has been his putting that has held him back from winning a lot of tournaments, not his long game.

OK, I see you don't want a serious discussion. Have a good evening.
