    well this is a pro player discussion, and tiger is certainly a pro player, but I think it might be more appropriate to post this in "odds and ends"...Not a huge golfer myself, but from some clips of insane shots I've seen of Tiger hitting, I won't argue w/ ya.

    He was great all week. He hardly played a bad shot and was so consistent, he was just at ease with himself and his game.

    He knew exactly what he was doing and as far as I was concerned it was as good as over after the first round, when Tiger's in contention he doesn't give it away. He did exactly what he needed to do, the scary thing was that it appeared that he romped home in 3rd gear so if anyone had of challenged he would of just stepped it up to another level and pulled away again.

    I'm sure his Dad was watching him today, he would of loved the manor in which Tiger won this one

    yeah it was really inspired. a nice gift to his dad. its nice that in my lifetime i could witness historic players like jordan, woods... and in our sport: sampras, agassi, graf, seles, federer in the making... all really inspired athletes.

    Can't really argue that!

    I hope Tiger goes on to win the the last major of the year as well! To be honest, I don't see anyone beating him there if he's on.

    Seems to me that its the same for golf and tennis. Tiger isn't the best ever until he passes Nicklaus. Granted, golf doesn't have the "open era" debates that tennis has. But in the end it comes down to the slams. And Jack has 18 of 'em.

  10. can't argue about it either...when jack was winning his 18 or so majors, golf hadn't exploded into what it is today..i might even say Tiger is more dominate than anyone at any sport, ever...now that's an arguement!

    Tiger Woods, the best ever

    I would agree that Tiger Woods is the best golfer of all time. Jack Nicholas would up there as one of the best but when its all said and done Tiger Woods is the best, plain and simple.

    i think he will surpass nicklaus. he already set so many records and one of them is having so many majors at his age.
