Is Tiger Woods the greatest golfer ever?
Mon, June 16, 2008

With a throbbing knee and a pounding heart, Tiger Woods made one last improbable escape Monday to win the U.S. Open in a 19-hole playoff over Rocco Mediate, his 14th career major and maybe the most amazing of them all.

One shot behind after a collapse no one saw coming, Woods birdied the 18th hole to force sudden death at Torrey Pines against a 45-year-old with a creaky back who simply wouldn't go away.

The Masters is everything to the golfer. He wanted to win and desided to win at all cost. That is truly a heart of a Champion. you never know unless you give it your all. And even if you loose and gave it your all at least you tried your very best. All Athletes, fighters etc go through this. Tiger Woods is no different. Even if he didn't win he gave it his all and he knew that. Why do you think I gave him the Rocky Balbora Award for? If you ever watch Rocky expecially Rocky 4 or Rocky Balbora woth Oscar De la Hoya you can see why he did it.

Or even More simple cause he had the desire to win. Taht was what made him tie and win at the final round. nothing else. All Athletes, fighters etc know this. They just don't give away Green Jackets or gold Medals or World championships for nothing?

M Johnson, You can't be serious. Maybe Tiger regards his mental health higher than his physical. Everthought of that. A hurt leg means a limp for life, a hurt mind is scared for life. Haven't heard of people commiting suicide because there leg is hurt. Sonds and movies are written about people who have been haunted for life due to one failure. Do you know they can fix his leg. They haven't figured out how to fix minds yet. Your the only person i have heard of that takes that mindset. Bet Rocco would have sacrificed that much to win. By the way ACL's are pretty easy to fix, so are fractured tibias. He just relaxes for a year now.

Exactly how many people listen to doctors orders. Lose weight, rehab, don't smoke, change your diet, excersize, rest etc. Ya Tiger is the only one. What ever.

What is the message to the younger genearation? winat all cost, never mind your health. It must be an ego thing it can't be for money.Against his Doctors advice he has now possible ruined his leg for life and your Reporters consider him a hero.You should be ashamed,Why not call it what it is,a stupid mistake for the sake of his Ego

I'm impress that he played while hurt. It shows how determined he was to win for everybody. Thats tough. I should know cause I too had that injury and it sucks.

Tiger Woods defiently gets the Rocky Balbora award.

Again I may not know much about golf of care for it ((Unless it's Hot Sholf golf))but to play thought that pain and have a heart of a champion, To prove everybody wrong. Thats tough, Way to Go Tiger...you earned my respect.

Well I guess his case just got stronger. Never heard of any golfer playing with a stress fracture in there leg abd torn cartiledge, let alone winning a major at the same time. Only ever hear of legends in basketball, hockey or football playing through pain like that. Bet Rocco wishes tiger would have listened to his doctors. i don't think there is a question he is the greatest golfer of all time andthis just solidified it.

Shayne, you're a conundrum. The question is "Is Tiger Woods the greatest golfer ever?" What does the equipment have to do with it, the length of the course, the fact he practises or plays 100% of the time. All these things together prove he's the best golfer of all time. I'm sure there were golfers who were aristocrats (rich socialites) who did nothing but golf, they weren't the best. Why have you not brought up the fact Tiger's competition is much stiffer week after week than Jack or Arnies was. Jack and Arnie have both attested to this. To paraphrase others, Europeans were not in the league (association) in the numbers they are now. Oh, and please identify what other job, Arnie or Jack did.

B Lo, while I may be an idiot, we said the same thing. So what does that make you? That's correct, an even bigger idiot. By the way at which point did I comment on anyone's grammar, before you answer that, idiot, remember there are numerous Pete/Peters on this site.
Disgruntledfan, 2008-06-18 11:37:52

I don't really care for golf but Tiger Woods is a great golfer. Almost as good as Jack Nicolous and Lee Travino
