And before he won his 15th Major Tiger said Jack was GOAT.
Tiger Woods says Jack Nicklaus the best of all time | Golf Channel
Tiger Woods has given a lot of people reason to believe he is the best golfer of all time. The 14-time major winner, however, said Friday he is second on the list.
I didn’t read what Rory said as being against BDC at all. He was wondering how someone could overpower the golf course the way that he did, I think the headline was misleading. Bryson, whether people agree or not, is trying new things and afaik doing it completely legally. People have a right to challenge whether that is good for the game or not, but I didn’t think Rory was criticizing him personally. Just saying he’s taken advantage of things that others haven’t.
I don’t think bad of him for doing his science stuff, I just don’t like his attitude sometimes. That headline article looks like it’s trying cause a controversy that really isn’t there
My 2 cents on Bryson's strokes gained ranking.
1. Give Bryson an additional stroke for the quality of field. The depth of today's tour is so much better than 40-50 years ago.
2. Give Bryson a quarter stroke for playing in the last pairing. None of the other 3 rounds above him came from the final group. Heck, Miller and Palmer both finished almost an hour before the final pairings. Nicklaus was in the second to last group. Having all eyes on you from shot 1 is just harder than playing under the radar for the first several holes.
3. Take away half a stroke for not playing in front of fans. Psychologically, I think this was a big deal for the players. And for someone as touchy as Bryson, I think being able to execute his gameplan without getting rattled or (potentially) heckled by fans was a big help.
Add it up and the intangibles vault him ahead of Nicklaus but keep him firmly behind Palmer and Miller.
Very scientific analysis I know.....
