  1. All Final Round Masters Rounds from 1968 Onward

    Found these on the Masters website: 1958: http://www.masters.com/en_US/watch/2017-04-03/49cd0d2-00c045f8f7b.html 1960: http://www.masters.com/en_US/watch/2017-04-03/49cd0d2-00c04686113.html 1962: http://www.masters.com/en_US/watch/2017-04-03/49cd0d2-00c04aa3de7.html 1964: http://www.masters.com/en_US/watch/2017-04-03/570ff1b9d23885397fecb3ecc852f55e.html Looks like the first three are pretty short, but the 1964 one is about 75 minutes.
  2. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Hogan would not have won more majors if you gave that entire generation better equipment. He was an incredible ballstriker, so the shitty equipment of that time period actually HELPED him separate from other people on the leaderboard who did not have the same ballstriking ability.
  3. All Final Round Masters Rounds from 1968 Onward

    I am really glad they posted them. Pretty awesome.
  4. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    If you gave Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and Lee Trevino today's technology, they would have beaten Nicklaus more often. Those three guys had a lower ball flight. Nicklaus had an advantage because of his natural ability to hit very high, soft long iron shots. Pretty much nobody else in golf could do that. Now we have hybrid clubs and Pro V1 balls that allow even the 500th best guy on the planet to hit those same kind of high, soft approach shots from long yardage. Tiger had a big advantage in the 1990's before that technology came along in the early 2000's. It has leveled the playing field in a big way and it would have done the same with Jack's generation of players.
  5. Poll: Definition of GOAT

    Brock wasn't there, you weren't there, and I wasn't there. That's what I'll say. Nelson's results were incredible. And I stand by my statement that he had more natural talent than Hogan, who has admitted this himself in the past. Hogan had to work extremely hard on his golf swing. At one point struggled so much with a hook that he almost quit the game entirely. Now here's some questions. Do you believe Hogan would still win 9 majors if Nelson didn't retire early? Do you believe Nelson would have stayed at 5 majors if he didn't retire early?
  6. Poll: Definition of GOAT

    How do you explain his scoring average? It was very similar to Tiger in 2000. Easier course setups?
  7. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Just looked at Immelman's results in 2008 when he beat Tiger at The Masters. Talk about getting hot at the right moment... FBR Open (Phoenix) - Missed Cut Northern Trust Open (Riviera) - Missed Cut WGC Match Play - T17 Honda Classic - Missed Cut PODS Champ (Valspar) - T65 Bay Hill - T48 WGC-Doral - T40 Houston Open - Missed Cut The Masters - WIN Talk about putting it together out of nowhere, LOL.
  8. 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational Discussion Thread

    Haha, my prediction about Rory sort of came true. The guy is very streaky. Sounds like Brad Faxon helped him a lot with his putting before this tournament started. Hopefully they will keep working together. Rory is very tough to beat when he starts putting like he is this week. If anything his ballstriking is a little bit off this week or he would probably be running away from the field. He has gained over 7.5 shots on the field with the putter.
  9. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Let me get this straight. You are arguing that a guy with 34 wins on the hardest Tour in the world against modern fields, including 3 majors, is not a great player. He's in the Hall of Fame and the supposed studs today would be damn lucky to end up with a similar career. DJ is still a long way from Vijay's total career performance. Singh was a late bloomer too. First win on Tour at age 30. First major at age 35.
  10. 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational Discussion Thread

    Excellent iron shot by Rory at the 18th. Should be able to make that 3 footer to post -10. He has a great chance to win tomorrow.
  11. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    You said he has never been great. 2004 was great. The guys today would love to have that season.
  12. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Vijay won 9 times in 2004 including a major and you said he's never been great. None of the current players have had a season like that. He also won over 30 times on the Tour including 3 majors as a late bloomer. Pretty damn good career.
  13. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    If you read Brock's post above, they didn't even have those international qualifying events until 2004. So it's NOT a classic example in the sense of comparing it to Jack's era. It's extra competition that the players of the last 20 years have had to deal with.
  14. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Perfect example of the lack of competition in the previous eras.
  15. Jack vs. Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?

    Michael Campbell's win at the 2005 U.S. Open is a good example. If you go back 30 years from that, he would NOT have been in the field as an international guy. Tiger finished 2nd to him.
