I decided I would start this thread because it seems like we have to be talking about this on a regular basis so I figured why not pool them to one spot. As someone who works with back injuries, the speculation, method of treatments and over analyzing makes me laugh a bit. In my professional opinion, I am surprised that Tiger is playing this weekend if his spasms were debilitating enough. Also just because he has a team of people working on him, doesn't mean that he would heal faster. Sometimes you have to leave it alone and do minimalistic treatments to let it recover. He did carry himself last week like he was having problems. The golf channel and having EVERYONE put their 2 cents in on back injuries is irritating.
In many of the Tiger vs Jack threads, it seems that people are talking past each other, because they mean different things when they say "Greatest of All Time." For example, Golf Channel commentator Brandel Chamblee seems to be in Tiger's camp now, but just a few years ago, he said that he didn't care if Tiger won 25 majors, Jack would still be the greatest -- I assume because of Tiger's off-course escapades. So this poll is an attempt to determine how many people distinguish between the greatest golfer of all time, the best golfer of all time, and the greatest golf career of all time. I hope that those responding will explain why they answered the poll the way they did. Under consideration are three fictional golfers, all playing in the same generation: Abe entered and won the US Amateur. That got him into the following year's Masters, which he also won. The Masters win got him into the other three professional majors, and he won all of those that same year. Still playing nothing but majors, he went on to win all four majors the following year as well, but then, for reasons known only to him, stopped competing. So his career totals were 8 pro wins, all of them majors, in two years. Bob had a brilliant amateur and professional career. He won the US Amateur twice, and won two regular PGA events and one major his first year on tour. He continued to play well every year for 20 years, winning at least twice each year, and winning 0 to three majors each year. He ended his 20-year career with 50 wins, including 15 majors, and several money titles, Vardon Trophies, and Player of the Year awards. Chuck once reached the quarter finals of the US Amateur, turned pro, and got into the US Open via sectional qualifying. He caught lightning in a bottle and won. Over his career he played very erratically, usually missing over a dozen cuts every year, but for some reason the majors brought out the best in him. He only won four non-majors, and zero money titles, Vardons, or POTYs. But although he never won more than one major a year, he ended up winning 25 majors in 30 years. Note: I intended this poll to have four questions --- how many different players do you think could possibly hold the three titles, and then which golfer you would name for each of the three titles. The poll machine only allows three questions, so please add a comment about which golfer you would say had the best career. Thanks.
