  1. 1. What do you think is a bigger deal, getting to play with Tiger or Jordan?

Parents just don't understand.

Twitter user Maddie tweeted the following text exchange with her father after he got to play golf with Tiger Woods and Notah Begay for his birthday.

Maddie was, to put it nicely, not impressed.

Ugh ... dad you're so embarrasing, gosh. Don't you know Tiger is so 2000-and-late .

The picture was taken on Wednesday at the Atunyote Golf Club at the Turning Stone Resort in Verona, N.Y., site of the Notah Begay III Invitational.

The original tweet was mysteriously deleted, but Maddie seems to be reveling in her newfound social media fame.

It's a teeny bopper being like... totally... a teeny bopper and the history you know best is that which you've experienced. Of course Woods is the bigger deal. That's like, the history I, like. totally ... experienced, ya.

Tiger for sure! How often do you get to play with one of the greatest -- arguably the greatest -- of all time? Jordan probably won't get to the point where he's in that conversation, but he'll have a great career just the same. Not only is this guy playing with Tiger, but also with Tiger's friend who once shot 59 in a professional tournament.

From her perspective, Spieth is the hotter deal right now....probably in more ways than just his golf game.  What the heck is wrong with that and why should she be forced to take down her tweet?  I'm so sick of anything that even remotely resembles "political correctness."

From my perspective (like her dad), I'd love to play a round with TW for my birthday.

I think you're unaware of what the definition of, "political correctness," is.

I'd rather play with friends, not Tiger. I'm serious. I'm afraid his hideous swing would work it's way into my game. I have no desire to chunk, and/or shank chip shots.

But pounding morning beers on the course with Spieth would be pretty cool.

The original text was curious because he mentions Notah first. Is Notah Begay a household name to leave off Begay, or not qualify with "a great golfer named Notah Begay." Just Notah! And before Tiger. Like the Notah part would thrill her too. The key point was that he played with Tiger Freakin Woods!!! Holy crap. Maybe he had told her all about it before so context was that she already knew the scoop. Just struck me as funny.

She's a teenager, but not a very nice tweet if you are TW or a fan.  I am not a TW fan but would like to think that if he were paired up with me, and knowing full well I am a beginning golfer he would be nothing less than civil.  Are there other pros I would prefer to be paired with if given my choice?  Sure, but I would still be thrilled to play a round with TW.

Tiger Woods is a great golfer but I don't know how anyone can say "arguably the greatest of all time." You'd have Bobby Jones and Jack Nicklaus long before you even got to Tiger.

This isn't the thread for this discussion, but nobody I've ever met has put Bobby Jones in the GOAT conversation. As for Jack or Tiger: [CONTENTEMBED=/t/2203/jack-or-tiger-whos-the-greatest-golfer layout=block][/CONTENTEMBED]

As for Jack or Tiger:

it's not the first time for this poster that he has thrown saint bobby into the equation, and not the first time he's been asked to post those opinions in the "greatest golfer" thread...

it's safe to say he is not fond of tiger... :-P

I don't think his swing would look hideous up close. I think it would look amazing as would Spieth's. I would play with either. I would be more nervous around Woods though.

You need to get out more. Every list of the greatest golfers of all time has Bobby Jones in the top five. Also, I was responding to another poster above.

As for the comments "he doesn't like Tiger" you might want to think about add "reading comprehension" to your do list for 2016 as I've already stated that Tiger is one of the greatest golfers of all time, just below Jack and Bobby. But don't let facts get in the way of a good attack.

    • Played Pinehurst #4 today.  Wet fairways, but playable.  39/38, 77.  Struck the ball really well, 12 fairways, 11 GIR’s.  16 putts a side.  No birdies! Had many chances, several inside 8 feet!  I had fun!  My 34th round of the year.  I’m taking tomorrow off!
    • The Taconic Pkwy in NY has some tortuous uphill and downhill turns although not a local street, people are passing each other on a road made for 1930s jalopies (I kid you not, the parkway was built in the 20s). It's incidents like these that make me think I was crazy for passing people at 75 mph on one of these turns. I'm going to take those turns a little slower now.
    • I'm sure it's doable.  If it's not already in effect in some places. My old TomTom informed me of radar traps, being over the speed limit, and red light cameras.
    • Have not gone into this thread except initially and now, so I don't know the content but has anybody wondered if he was on the phone ?  Ima tell you, before I banned myself from phone usage in most situations while driving, talking on the phone was about as distracting as anything;  like blowing thru a stoplight without a clue in the world.
