Re: 2013 Golf Season Thread
Jack is still the greatest of all-time, but I'll gladly put Tiger at #2. Jack has the most majors, the most runner-up finishes in majors, and he was playing against stronger competition than Tiger has played against.
The funny thing to me is people trying to compare 2013 Tiger and 2013 Phil. That it's even being debated about who the player of the year is, is laughable, IMO. Take away Phil's back nine at the British Open, and he isn't even in the discussion. Tiger has won far more tournaments this year, won a lot more money, has a huge lead in Fed Ex points, and Tiger doesn't play in all those smaller events Phil plays in. If you're going to give the POY award based on one 9-hole stretch in one tournament, even if it's a major, then the award isn't worth having.
