The other 3 are obviously all great golfers, but this is a classic case of "what have you done for me lately?" Rose and Scott have one major each. Phil is obviously fantastic, but he does tend to disappear for long stretches. Tiger is so much more consistent.
Tiger obviously isn't as good as he once was, but he's still the best golfer in the world and the stats back that up. It's only a matter of time before he wins another major.
All that being said, and being a big fan of tiger on the course (can't stand him off the course), it's still quite amazing to me how he's performing on the weekend in majors recently. It's really hard to get used to. I do wonder if he happens to pull one off in the near future if he'll gone on a nice little run. Similar to what Duval did once he finally one for the first time.
What have you done for me lately is kinda my point.
What Tiger has done on the weekend in the majors has been shocking. It used to be once he had the lead on Sunday he wasn't giving it back. Last Sunday not only did he give it back but it looked like he didn't want it.
I do think there is a block right now for Tiger. What is causing that I have no idea. You point to Duval and his impressive run over the course of a couple of years. The one difference I see is he started that as a 26 year old, Tiger is now 37. As each major passes Tiger gets a little big older and a younger field continues to get tougher and tougher.
