I would put Jack #1 overall but I don't buy the stronger competition argument. What Tiger had done is phenomenal when you take into consideration golf's growth as well as the added conditioning each and every player takes serious.
I have often wondered this. What would Phil's legacy have been had he not come to prominence when Tiger was at his prime. Phil will go down as a great golfer, but if he wasn't going head to head with Tiger he may be an all time great up there with the likes of Hogan.
