  1. 1. Tiger or Jack: Who's the greatest golfer?

    • Tiger Woods is the man
      1629
    • Jack Nicklaus is my favorite
      817

Blah, blah, blah, something about hard work, putting food on the table, grinding, etc.  Ergo, Jack had tougher competition. :-P

Hello, Mr. Golfingdad? This is [insert newspaper/magazine/website title here]. You're hired.

OR, maybe you should read the thread title and not go off topic?

In defense of @Gunther , the thread title does not state "Who's the greatest golfer".....

I wasn't alive at jack's prime so I go with tiger being the greatest golfer, also tiger can rip it further, has a better short game, and he's a built athlete, what else is their to say?

However the very first post says this so it does appear the intent was to start a conversation about that.

Thanks, I was going to make that point but you beat me too it.  Although why the point even has to be made in a thread with 266 pages of context discussing who is the greatest golfer is beyond me.

And if we are talking about which golfer is the best person, I doubt that either Jack or Tiger would be in the top 2.

Well, duh.  That would obviously be Jordan Spieth. :-P

I wouldn't say that. I don't care about how many it's how he did it. Tiger in his prime was incomparable.

Actually, I more or less agree with that. Here's the thing. Both these guys have won the career grand slam THRICE. They are tied. Nicklaus picked off a few more, but it was such a different era of competition. Even if you just look at the difference in world population then and now, Woods had so many more people to contend with. Finally if you factor in short game, which is a huge part of golf, at least the way I see it, the more complete player is Woods.

Jordan Spieth will be the NEW greatest golfer of all time..move over Jack and Tiger

Mwah, a bit early to make that statement imo.

I find this thread funny to read after joining TST last year.  To read the threads from 2006 before "The fall of Tiger".  Now to see what those same posts might read could be quite different; especially after seeing Tiger's short game woes from February.  You cannot doubt Tiger's talent but what makes a golf great.  Is it his wins or what he has meant to the game and the people around the sport.  To answer your question, Jack, IMO, is better of the two choices you gave us.  However, after watching the Arnie 3 hrs series, Arnold Palmer has done more for this sport than anyone else - maybe more than anyone else ever will.  Greatest in my opinion is what legacy you leave behind and there is none better than Arnold Palmer at this point.

Arnie has a 10 year head start on Jack who has a 30 year head start on Tiger.  Their stories are far from finished.

And, has already been pointed out this thread is about the greatest golfer , not the best person.  If we want to talk about best person, none of the three is even in the running, IMO.

To be the "greatest" at anything takes more than talent..it takes character too. Character is not something Tiger ever had! His dad is rolling over in his grave in disgust!

    • I’m a fan of the M2… always be one of TM’s best heads.  BUT. Doea the other Titleist driver’s hosel adapter fit the TS4 and vice versa??  If it does you can use the proforce in both heads etc…. 
    • Yup. Have to agree. Can't give up 40+ on the road and expect to win. Would have like to see OSU take more chances down the field. Hats off to Michigan though they were simply better today. It's Georgia's national championship to lose now IMO, I don't think there's any offense left in the playoff picture that will challenge Georgia's defense.
    • Too much so, yes. The body is responsible for the AROUND. The arms are responsible for the UP.
    • Figured since I have this, I may as well post it.   Even though it’s not a good video. Can’t get back far enough.    driver swing is quite a bit more flat.  Probably too much sway rather than turn.    But, I’m really working on speed, and this summer I averaged 278 off the tee with driver and hit 61% fairways.     So, I just don’t think it’s my biggest concern.  I do want to be longer, though.      
    • Day 119: Worked on backswing cupped wrist feel and also transition priority piece. Decided to get the feel of head position change (I call it Rory-ing) first, before working on clubface. I will be playing 18 tomorrow and will pay attention to ball flight to see how I need to adjust palmar flexion amount. Also did pitching/chipping drills from covid-19 practice plan days 6/7.
