How many majors will Tiger win? (please read carefully)

26 posts in this topic

I made a comment to a friend that it would've been very interesting to have tracked public opinion on how many majors we expected Tiger to win over the years, from back when he first turned pro, to when he was dominating (I had him as high as 26 or 28 at one point), and how it has fluctuated since. Obviously we can't go back and do that, but we can start tracking it going forward.

I'm proposing to start tracking this going forward, immediately after each major. Ideally, I'd like to have a) decent sample size and b) consistency in the sample over time. With that in mind, only respond to this thread if you are willing to be in it for the long haul. I'll create a Google form for future surveys.

So...how many majors will Tiger win?

Just give a number. No ranges or conditions. Feel free to PM me instead if you want. Lurkers can email me at canjimdunk@gmail.com . I am canvassing other sources as well in order to get some breadth in the sample.

Tiger isn't and won't ever be as good as his prime (which was completely dominant).  Add in the fact that the tour is full of young talent and getting deeper every year while Tiger ages, and I don't think he catches Nicklaus.  That being said, I think at some point he picks up another Major along the way.

Would have been more interesting to start this 10+ years ago.  Can't promise I will always remember to respond, so feel free to PM

Six years from now and 24 majors later Tiger will have captured 5 more majors for a total 19 majors.

Assuming he completely learns the rules or finds a caddy to know them AND he doesn't have some idiot rules official telling him not to worry then I think he wins a couple more but falls short of the record.

He will win 19 . . . after he breaks the record he will spend most of his time on Privacy II the latest yacht in his flotilla.

    • I started playing when I was 3 or 4yrs old, I don't really know.  But I was breaking 90 by age 14.  
    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
