For the first time in television history, a network (CBS) displayed during a golf telecast a graphic not designed to glorify Tiger Woods.  Here’s the skinny:

Most 1st and 2nd place finishes prior to age 22:

Jordan Spieth: 10
Tiger Woods:   7
Sergio Garcia: 6

A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.  Let us hope this astonishing development marks a return to honest golf coverage, the likes of which we have not seen in two decades.

Hats off to CBS!

    Tiger had 24 wins and 4 majors at 25. If Jordan gets to those number by the time he’s 25 then we’ll talk.

      Heh. Yeah, no talking about Jordan for four more years. LOL.

      Dude, go follow hockey or something, okay?

      • Speedy says:

        Lanny, I fear you’re talking more about TW, than anyone. Tigerphobic? LOL

      • lannyh says:

        No. I talk about bad media coverage, and the media ruins the coverage by obsessing over Woods. The purpose of the website is to call the media for that. It’s silly for you to claim otherwise. If the world had refused to talk about the Nazis, we’d all be speaking German now.

      Who cares? They’re all still chasing Nicklaus.

    • Ken says:

      I wish the Tiger fans would practice what they preach. I’ve read many comments from them saying to wait until Spieth or McIlroy get 14 majors, then talk to them about how great they are.

      Call us when Woods gets to 19 majors and then we’ll suffer through your “he’s the GOAT” arguments.

      • Jaybird says:

        Personally, I’ve made a distinction based on what I actually saw (i.e. never saw Nicklaus). Tiger had the greatest 10 year stretch of golf we’ve ever seen. Jack had the greatest career in golf. They are both among the 4 best players in golf history (Snead and Hogan are the other two).

      • Ken says:

        My favorite Nicklaus stat is that in the 40 majors played in the 1970s, he had 35 top ten finishes, 21 of which were top 3. 35 out of 40 top tens!

        I don’t think that Woods had a decade quite like that. From the British Open in 1998 thru the 2008 US Open, he had 27 top ten finishes and 20 in the top 3 in those 40 majors.

      • Jaybird says:

        Top 10’s are good but averaging better than 5 wins a year for ten years is unheard of.

      • lannyh says:

        How about seven Tour de Frances in a row?

      • Ken says:

        Nicklaus averaged 4 wins per year from turning pro in 1962 thru 1978.

      • Jaybird says:

        Nicklaus averaging 4 wins over 16 years is part of the reason I said Nicklaus had the better career. But, TW having better than 5 wins per season over 10 years is why I said he had the best 10 year stretch I’ve seen. When TW won #14 in 2008 he was something like 4 ahead of Jack’s pace. Obviously we see how that turned out but at the time….it was historic. The other thing I, personally, factor is 79 vs 73.

    Tiger had 121 women in one stretch. Match that, Jack!
