I have no idea if he'll win another major, or how many. But I don't think it's because he doesn't have what it takes or because the other guys are just as good. In any given week, he's still the single player most likely to win. It's just REALLY hard to win in professional golf these days......laregely because of the impact he's had on the game.
I guess I don't see Tiger as the best player in the world. Right now if I had to I would take a handful of guys over him right now. I don't think I would say Rory is the 3rd best player in the world right now. Would you?
Tiger still is a very good golfer. He still is one of the best golfers in the world. But right now he reminds me of a Davis Love III type player. Very good but struggling to come though in the majors.
