For once, knowledge is making me poor!

True!I don't necessarily disagree with that statement, but I feel that you aren't giving Tiger the credit he deserves. If not the best ever, Tiger is most certainly 2nd best of all-time, behind only Jack.
However, coming from a Cowboys fan, how can one ever trust a statement about talent evaluation?
ETA: I think 80% of the people are not able to understand the talent Jack had because they just look at today's accomplishments which are horrendously skewed by the equipment.
Think about what would happen to records if the hoop in the NBA became three feet in diameter. Or if the football field became 5o0yards long instead of 100. Or if the baseball was magnetically attracted to the bat and the fences were 120 feet away instead of 300.
Golf equipment has evolved because there is money in it. Most amateurs buy that new $600 driver every two years, and play a ball that can do unheard of things 50 years ago.
