    Tiger Woods is the best golfer in the history of golf. And it's not even close.

    Re: Tiger is Amazing!!!

    This guy is so clutch. It was a little funny, the announcers were talking about how Bryant should get ready cause there is more than a 90% chance its goin to extra holes. Not a couple minutes after, Tiger sinks a 20 footer for birdie to win it. This guy is almost unhuman.

    Re: Tiger is Amazing!!!

    I remember a few years back Tiger changed his golf swing from a very upright swing to a more around the body swing and everyone wondered if he would ever get back to his 'glory' days in his late teens when he won the masters by 18 shots. Well I think now that he has won his sixth straight tourney its pretty apparent that he is back and will be the dominate force for a while. He doesn't have the purest swing but he is so fit that it makes up for it. Don't get me wrong he has a very nice swing, wouldn't mind copying it for this summer!!!

    Tiger is the best golfer to ever walk the face of the earth IMHO.

    I won't argue with that. Especially since he does it ALL by himself.

    Re: Tiger is Amazing!!!

    When he was winning by double digit strokes, from 99-02, he was more amazing. What he's doing now is absolutely incredible though. He's just not beating the pants off of people like he was during those years. The fact that he's still winning might be an even greater testament to how good this guy really is.

    Enjoy watching him. There isn't another athlete even remotely as dominant as Tiger in any other sport, and I have a hard time believing that there ever will be.

    Re: Tiger is Amazing!!!

    He isn't beating guys into submission as much anymore because the field behind him has gotten so much deeper. In that stretch of 98-02 there were only a handful of players that could compete with him. And if he was on and they were a little off it would get real ugly. Today, the gap from #3 in the World Golf Rankings (Phil is #2 and 4 points ahead of #3) to #80 is only 4 points. That is incredible, and it shows that there are a lot players that on any given week (when Tiger takes isn't playing) can straight up hit the rock. Bart Bryant showed it today and I take my hat off to the way he stood up to Tiger and played a hell of a round.

    And yes he is the most incredible athlete I have ever seen. If you didn't know he is a three handicap left-handed!! Not to mention he can ball and is a crazy beast in the weight room.

    I totally agree. You have to compare people against who their competition is, though. You can say that everyone else got better, or that Tiger got worse, but he was clearly more dominant in 98-02 than he is today.

    That being said, what he's doing today is arguably a more impressive feat, considering that his competition IS so much better than it was then, and his advantage in length off the tee has been somewhat mitigated by advances in equipment.

    I had no doubts that he would make it. You could just tell. He is the best by far.

    You don't need the biggest drives when you have pin-point accuracy with your irons.
