As most know, Jack holds the most prestigious record in golf - 19 second place finishes in majors.
Jordan now has 3 runner-ups, while Jack only had 1 at the same age. Can anything stop Jordan from becoming the GOAT?
here's what jack and co had to say about that:
I was shaking my head when this inevitable thread popped up. But why do they? It finally occurred to me that we love witnessing greatness. I caught the tail end of Jack, saw all of Tiger, kept hoping with Phil.
While I would love to see it I just don't think JS will be as good as Tiger or Jack. He does know how to win though. You can have all the talent in the world but you probably won't have that intangible. Look at DJ he has sooo much talent but he has to have his A game to win. It seems Jordan never has his A game and he wins.
The comparisons to Tiger Woods/Jack Nicklaus, given his age, are inevitable.
Hopefully Jordan is smart and doesn't make the following mistakes:
1. switch equipment, particularly a switch that includes the golf ball
2. listen to any teacher on the planet that wants him to rebuild his golf swing... ever
3. put his personal life before his golf for at least 10 years (sorry girlfriend, peace out)
If he can follow those 3 simple rules... he can make a run at accomplishing some seriously rare things in golf that are among only a handful of players.
