Re: Tiger Woods vs. Michael Jordan

I'm also just playing devil's advocate. I think Tiger really does dominate his respective sport like no one else playing currently.

I mean if he is leading, he wins. Period. He knows it, the field knows it, the fans know it. It is unbelievable!
One knock on Tiger is that he's not known really for coming back on the final day if he's trailing. And one impressive stat about Nicklaus is not only 18 majors, but 19 second place finishes. I realize that second place is just the first loser, but still that's not bad.

And of course....Kobiashi!

Re: Tiger Woods vs. Michael Jordan

I'm training to defeat him next year. I seriously think I can take him. He shows that you don't have to be a sloppy, fat bitch to win competitive eating contests. Next year, Coney Island will be bathed in TMC-excellence.

Re: Tiger Woods vs. Michael Jordan

I wouldn't sit too close though, because that excellence might get all over you if I eat TOO many dogs.

I can remember Tiger making one ridiculous run on Sunday.

That is from tigerwoods.com. I believe this was the tournament where he nailed that putt on the back 9 from about 20(ish) feet, walked it down and pointed to it as it dropped. I remember thinking that was one of the greatest comebacks I'd ever seen.

However, that is the only comeback along those lines I can remember him making.

TAFKAS, I think Tiger has come back a few times. He has now won 51 tournaments since he turned pro. I read somewhere that he has only played in like 200 or 201 tournaments, so he wins about every 4th tournament he enters. That is a ridiculas stat! Everyone talks about Phil, and Sergio, and Els and other guys like that, but Tiger wins even when he is not playing well, because he is the most mentally tough as well. He truley dominates his sport. Jack won his 18 major at age 46. If Tiger wins one a year from here on out he will be 38 by the time he wins number 18. He could easily win 2 a year at the rate he is going, just because the Master is at the same venue every year.

Don't get me wrong. I think Tiger is truly awesome, really a once in a lifetime player that I'm glad I'm getting a chance to see live.

Actually the pointing at the ball as it was heading in the hole was when he last won the pga championship(2000) vs. the no-namer Bob May. That was great Sunday of golf.

Re: Tiger Woods vs. Michael Jordan

tiger's good, but golf's not exciting, and i'd never go watch someone else play. Jordan's work in the olympics also turned basketball global. you can go to the middle of nowhere in africa and people there will know about Jordan and micheal jackson. so no, tiger isn't even close.

the world is very well aware of tiger woods. tiger woods is just as global as michael jordan or michael jackson. you shouldn't let your opinion of a sport dictate how you think the world views a person. just because you don't like golf doesn't mean that the rest of the world feels the same way.

who said i did? you? look at the polls and stats.

i guarantee the chinese know jordan much better than tiger, since basketball has a huge following there. Golf doesn't the last i checked. America has a trivial % of the world's population, and I think you're guilty of what you're accusing me of :P

Re: Tiger Woods vs. Michael Jordan

first of all, you said you did. your opinion that golf is not exciting is not at all the same as the rest of the world. and if you disagree, show me something concrete, these polls and stats you speak of. i'd like to see you prove that jordan is more popular worldwide than tiger...otherwise it's just simply your opinion.
