I hear a lot of complaining when I write about Tiger Woods. I hear a lot of complaining when I write about Rory McIlroy. So I wrote a piece yesterday about seven other golfers, “By Popular Demand: Crickets and Tumbleweeds.” True to form, few bothered to comment on it or even read it. (Though we did get some great feedback from the guy at Golf Analytics, a very pleasant surprise.)
I learned my lesson. Today, I’m going to give golf fans what they want: the Big Dogs — Rory and Tiger. The Ulsterman and the Big Cat. Let’s settle it once and for all… Who is the best? (If the formatting of the table is jumbled, you can try this one.)
Won pro tourney as a teenager? YES no
Lowest score at U.S. Open? YES no
Most under par at U.S. Open? YES no
Current consecutive years with win? 7 0
Favorite to beat Jack’s major record? YES no

* Lanny H is projecting that this year’s Irish Open will be stronger than this year’s Quicken Loans tourney.
The clear winner is Rory McIlroy! Congratulations!
