I tend to agree a little bit with the premise of the article, but I strongly disagree that Jack is the best golfer of all time. Jack has 4 more majors, but that's really the only thing he has on Tiger. All of Tiger's win percentages are better and at his rate he'll blow away Jack's record.
I think we'd all love to see Tiger and Jack play against each other in their prime. Obviously, that won't happen. But, what I believe would happen is Tiger would beat Jack 60% to 40% due to his short game. Tiger has arguably the best short game of all-time, where Jack wasn't even class. This is why Tiger can win when his swing is off, and the reason he's only missed a few cuts in his career. And this is the main reason why Tiger is the better overall golfer than Jack.
To switch notes, I can't wait for this tournament to start. I always look forward to it like no other, and with all this Tiger drama it's going to be a crazy week.
