Sure, there is a difference between the number 50 player in the world and number 150, but its not a significant difference. The number 50 player in the world doesn't have that much better of a chance than the number 150 player in the world to win a tournament. Especially not a major where variance comes into play at a much higher level
So are you trying to make an argument for Tiger being GOAT by saying the fields are far more deeper nowadays. Im guessing if I were to go back and look this would be 100% the opposite of how you felt a few days ago

did you use your "course knowledge" or "instant knowledge" to reach this decision?

lol, i dont have to ask a tour player. the answer is clearly no. There is not as much emphasis put on winning a WGC as there is a major. Fact.

Of course not but your post was worded in a way where you stated there are only 4 majors as if there were 10 WGC Events which is why I replied the way I did.

I would never make the argument for Tiger to be the GOAT because the fields are "deeper" nowadays. Jack had to play against stiff competition week in, week out. Just because the field is deeper and more people have the ability to win doesn't persuade me enough for GOAT status.

What i have always stated since i came on here was that Tiger continuing to win, and surpassing Jack in Majors would solidify his place in history as the GOAT.

Was out there today from 9-2 local time. We followed Rory/Keegan/Dustin for a bit then also the group just behind them Stricker/Sned/Haas for a bit then kind of walked around.

Coolest part of the day was being 10 feet away from Rory when he hit an approach shot. We were down the fairway about where the drives were landing - on the right side, where he was on several holes. His shot plops down 20 feet away from us and the swarm of people was still back on the tee box so my father-in-law and I were planning on staying ahead of the crowd and heading up to the green but instead we walked over to his ball near a tree and had a perfect spot to watch him hit. Was pretty cool seeing the man, the myth, the legend up close. He got up to his ball and let out an obvious sigh before hitting a pretty good approach shot.

Dustin and Keegan were hitting 3w off many tees but Rory was always hitting his driver.

I couldn't believe one hole we saw the tee shots and Stricker out-drove Snedeker and Bill Haas.

Philbert hit his approach on #1 just off the green to the left then chipped it to 3 inches. That was cool to see.

Geoff Ogilvy on #1 hit his approach to like 12-15 feet and for fun I bet my FIL $5 that he'd make it. He missed, then missed the comebacker for a 3-putt bogey and I said "so do I owe you $10 now?"

Ben Crane hit a fairway wood on the very long #17 to literally 3-4 feet. He then took 10 minutes reviewing the putt from all angles and then missed it. lol.

Keegan takes just as long in person as he does on TV.

Oh great were back to the Tiger Crap. We need a fricking rule that this has to go in the Tiger Woods thread. We all know who thinks he is the GOAT and we know whom doesnt.

The fors and against are all stubborn SOB's that will not change their opinion.

Do we have any Mods around here that can instruct folks of the Tiger Thread

Jack was on a different level than most of the field, kind of like your boy Tiger is now. When Tiger is in form, only a select few players can beat him. Jack was the same way in his day. There was only a select few that could compete with him (Arnie, Gary, Watson) Those guys used to battle just as hard as the top players in the world do now.

You're. Stick to math.

I know, to settle the GOAT argument, let's have a spelling contest!

Heres a good question..

Whose legacy would you rather have on tour, a player with 20 worldwide wins and 0 majors or someone with 2 major championships, but only 5 tour wins.

Lol from this thread. GOAT ending to this video.
Glad you linked that vid -- it put this one in my right-hand column. Very informative and revealing about both Tiger's shooting tactics and Brandel's hate:
