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.

Here we go again, another group of experts. Now it's golf. For those of you who don't think Tiger Woods is the best golfer of all time right now, your an idiot. Whom are we to believe 95% of the PGA tour past and present who state he's already the best or you old time hackers who can't live with the fact your old and forgotten. The only ones who seem to not want to admit it and have difficulties supporting their reasons, are Nicholas and Faldo. Why Faldo, he was never even in the same zip code as Tiger, Nicholas, Arnie etc. Anyhow, wake up and enjoy watching the best golfer you will ever see. Oiler fans had the opportunity to watch the best hockey player ever to lace up and they didn't even sell out the arena during the Stanley cup finals back in the day.

I can do without all the F-Bombs and the club throwing and the acting but you can't deny he is the best right now, not all time YET.

Mike

where do you get Tiger doesn't value every win. He has repeatedly said that the record he thinks is the most impressive is not The 18 majores but the 60+ pga victories by I think Snead. His ultimate goal. He is well on his way to be the best ever and I beleive he has far stiffer competition than the past greats because its not just the rich are exposed to the game now and its not just a pastime for the rich but a competitive sport for the Nations now. If anyone doesn't show respect for all facets of the game, its Tiger. He shows respect for the game, the competitiors, the fans, the children, Family. Its hard to knock this guy.

Like Gretzky, Tiger is thee best in his field. Both owe a lot to their fathers. SAD that Tiger's Dad didn't live to see this latest win.

Woods is the best golfer of his time at least. Maybe the best golfer we have ever seen.

That's not to say someone else couldn't come along later and do better.

He's sort of the Wayne Gretzky of golf.

He is the best NOW and will continue to be the best for as long as he plays.

Hey Billie Bob, the fact is he won, WTF cares if he was wincing in pain. Maybe if Rocco did'nt act like the life of the party and put his head down to win, he would have.

Jack wanted to win all tournies. Majors were special, but each win he valued. Once Tiger learns to value each win with the respect, it deserves, MAYBE he can be called the best ever, but certainly not yet.
Mike, 2008-06-16 22:09:16

Yup, if not just based on talent alone than also because he's clutch damn near every time he needs to be.
Dave, 2008-06-16 21:16:59

Tiger is simply the best of all time, with less attended tournies, a higher win percentage always against the best talent in the world. Unlike other golfers who cherry pick their events. Bad knee or not, a W is a W. 'nuff said.

jack and arnie will both tell you that Tiger is the best ever....so will anyone else who knows anything about golf
