Tiger can only dream about winning 18 majors. Jack had a support team at home that Tiger will never have again. After all who or what can he possibly attract now? As chi-chi said, "Jack became a legend in his spare time". Sevie hit the nail on he head, "Jack beat every body, Tiger has beat nobody. About a year before Tiger's ultimate betrayal was exposed Lee Trevino was asked if Tiger would beat Jack's record, without hesitation he said "not a chance". Lee knew what was going on but the networks wouldn't dare reveal it because at the time Tiger was America's model man. Well guess what, "the chickens have come home to roost".
As Tiger was at his prime he was beating aged ones, new ones and golfers who were comfortable being rich just placing in the top 20 every time they played without all of the publicity.Bruce Lektize (sp) was a genius at it. Shot for shot he probably spent more time at home with a woman he loved and made more money than any other player that was able to keep his card.
Tiger's problem is he is obsessed with beating Jack. Jack was only interested in winning tournaments.That aside the obvious gets in Tiger's way. Tiger has to beat everybody in the field which now consists of too many players that have gone head to head with him and beat him. Just to name a few, he no longer raises the pulse rate of Robert Rock, Justin Rose, Louie, Rory, Phil, Martin, Adam, Patrick Reed. Jordan, Grahme, etc.
Not that the PGA is not doing everything possible to help Tiger as they are now going around the world opening up spots to 6 handicapers (all in the name of diversity mind you).
