  4. This beef was about removing a leaf. Maybe Watson was attacking becuase he was ASSuming something based on Gary's reputation. It's time to let it go when the only two other players in the field said it was okay by them. The point of it all is was just trying to put some perspective to all those posts decrying "classless" Phil for inappropriately attacking "poor old" Tom Watson, when Watson himself would never hesitate to call someone out regardless of the circumstances or implications.
  5. Sorry, but I corrected post while you were responding to say they saw nothing wrong in what Player did.
  6. Yeah, um only he didn't. Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus were part of that Skins game foursome and saw nothing wrong in what Player did (removing a leaf from behind his ball). No skins were won on the hole as Watson, Player and Nicklaus all ended up with pars. And there was no other field to protect. Watson was just being an over competitive, dictitorial a-hole, making an accusation without thinking of the implications. Player to this day, says it still hurt him greatly.
  7. My guess is a lot of these guys just don't like Phil and have no knowledge of Watson the player or person. If you want to talk about speaking out of turn or throwing someone under the bus, how about poor little grandpa Watson accusing golfing Legend Gary Player of cheating in a ceremonial, made for TV, Skins Game? Talk about hurting someone, Gary still carries the wounds from that one.

    Rory has no star power

    Okay, here you go. The post is about Rory having a lack of star power and the general consenus (except for you and maybe one or two others) is prolific winning bring star power. To this end Zipazoid made a very representative reference to a tubby Jack Nicklaus in his early days coming up against the very charismatic Arnold Palmer and his army and being called Fat Jack etc. In the end Jack became widely popular because of his numerous big victories, not because of how he looked or where he was from. There, doubtless you will still balk, but that's it and I'm done.

    Rory has no star power

    Yeah you missed a lot and it's not worth explaining to you.

    Rory has no star power

    +1 For the extremely accurate and apt historical analogy.

  13. I can only go by what Rory said. On Saturday night, the very next thing out of his mouth after answering the question about what it would mean to win the Open, was THE MASTERS. Rory most likely could care less about the FedEx Cup.
  14. I say Rory. I think he will do it right off the bat next year. As soon as he holed out on 18 yesterday, that became all he is thinking about. I don't think Tiger will get to 15th until his career is on the wain. I believe it will come in one last hurrah like Jack in 1986.

    Will Tiger Surpass Jack's Major Total (2014 Edition)

    I will add to this that Tiger in his prime was an incredibly agressive putter in the mold of Palmer and Watson and once that ability left those two, they were done winning majors.
