Yes, I still remember a American friend told me before, when I asked "Why Tiger can play so good?". He says " The different is the pressure between Tiger and other ". Million dollar to the winner is allot for avg pro player. Tiger already has many millions in his Bank account .. It is not the money he is looking for . He just want to win ... lol!

Actually I was thinking, Tiger was trained to win...that's why viewership of PGA went down when his affair and injury took centre stage, but now that's he's winning again, viewership went up again. Just like Michael Jordan when he led the Bulls to NBA title, the viewership also very high back then.

Thanks for that post, Pak Slicer51. It read like a John Grisham novel, I enjoyed it.

....

You r welcome bro Lee, I just mainly copy & paste but it nice to see someone down so much and manage to pick it up again. It is not east at all. Tiger is not young, I hope to see better younger player that can match his record soon in my life time.
Honestly I doubt so, people like tiger come out once every 20-30 years, Nickalaus waited almost 20 years to see Tiger.

Err... I feel that its a diff era thing. At Jack's time, maybe not many players to compete with him.
If Tiger dun play well or retire, there r so many good players competing now and in future.

And for some of the records/stats, I really doubt that anyone will be able to break them in the next 30 years.

Just to mention a few :

1. 74 pga win(at the moment)
2. Achieved No. 1 world ranking in his 42nd week as a professional and became the youngest-ever No. 1 golfer (21 years, 24 weeks)
3. 281 consecutive weeks(5years 21 weeks) in the top spot and 623(1 week to 12 years) weeks total

There many more records he holds... He is really amazing...

Even Tiger's era...so many players were commented to be his biggest challenger in the next 10 years, I can name at least 10, but non really appeared or only for a short period and that's it. This show he and jack were the most dominating player in their each respective era. Also Jack's era, there's no offical world ranking. During those 2 years in the wilderness, no one had come out to be that dominating as well. That's why he's special.....I think he already attain Legendary status already whether or not he break Jack's record on the major, but I would like to see him break it.

I agreed with the viewership went up when he start winning but for me, it is most to see whether he will pull a miracle shot during his round, when everyone though it is impossible. That's already worth for me in staying up to watch him play. Smile
