Mucksandgrav who has had a better career? Luke Donald with no major or Todd Hamilton the 1 major wonder? Its all about majors right? Surely it has to be Hamilton
I tried this a couple of pages before you did. Predictably, no one responded. The "majors are the only thing that matters" line of thought is a clear and obvious cherry pick - it's only used as an argument when someone wants to defend Jack Nicklaus.
Ccl. Keep thinking a pga tourament win is equivelent to winning a major.
People aren't saying they are equivalent. They're saying that X# of majors don't completely outweigh Y# of "regular" tournaments when X is like 1/10th of Y. They're also saying that there are several "regular" tournaments which aren't as prestigious as the majors, and don't have as much media pressure surrounding them, but do have stronger fields.
Yes you do. You ignore all other arguments. It is one of many important statistics for sure. Out of all the statistics yeah I guess you can say its the most important however when Tiger is crushing Jack in 9 of 10 statistical categories including more wins in tourneys with harder fields I think that makes up for not having those 4 majors right now (BO would say only 3 behind) when its also inevitable that hes going to get them.
I'm not ignoring all other arguments. I know and understand the argument you're making for Tiger, but IMO, obviously not yours(don't get butt hurt), majors are the biggest factor in this whole deal.
Therefore, when there is someone that hasnt surpassed the other in the most important category, that is enough for me to hold off(for now) on crowning him.
I literally don't understand how Steve Stricker hits the ball as far (relatively) and straight as he does without hinging his wrists at all and sweeping the ball off the fairway instead of taking a divot.
See I think you need to look at major wins in a different light. Why are you overlooking the most important tournaments of the year? I figured you would look at the most difficult tournaments of the year as a pretty useful tool at measuring greatness, as well as a players whole body of work. I think you are putting too much emphasis on Tiger's total wins, streaks, etc. and not enough on the biggest tournaments of the year, but thats just my opinion.
you mean like all the world golf championships Tiglet has won? and the Players? and the world series of golf? etc. etc.
LOL Tiger is GOAT of his ERA Jack GOAT of his era. Now quit comparing apples and oranges.
