Who'd You Rather Be Right Now - Tiger or Jordan

Who would you rather be right now:



Tiger: 14 Major wins, 79 PGA Tour wins, $750 million in the bank after a public divorce, the past is the past - not so good future in terms of overall health to compete

Jordan: 3 Major wins, 11 PGA Tour wins, $30 million in the bank, steady girlfriend, whole world in front of him



The last point states it all... but nothing is guaranteed for Jordan at this point, whereas for Eldrick, the writing's on the wall. But would you take a guaranteed legacy with all those wins vs. a potential career being stellar?
The average WRX'er drives it 342, and hits a 7-iron 220.*

    It would be more fun to be Jordan but more satisfying to be Tiger.

    Either man could retire right now and be set for life.



    Tiger Woods, even in his non competitive condidtion, commands every room he enters. +1 for him



    Jordan is 23 and who wouldn't want to be 23 again? +1



    Probably Tiger to be quite honest. He could never play again and stil have the rest of his life to jet set and yacht around like a goofball.

    Enough with this rigatoni. That's for my brother in Anthony in RI.

    Competitors would rather be in the game than on the sidelines. I strongly suspect Tiger would rather be Jordan right now. I certainly would rather be winning the Open today over anything Tiger could do or afford.

    With two sets of twins running around the house? No way. The answer is Jordan because he's young, rich, healthy, and childless.

    Jordan, obviously. He can still play golf
  • SoMoneyMuchWinSoMoneyMuchWin Members Posts: 30
    Jordan for sure. He's still young and doing great things. Tiger is a hurting old man both physically and psychologically, albeit a legend.

    Jordan is 23, and sooner or later the money and fame will get to him. And we have no idea how he'll handle it.



    When Rory was this age doing this we were asking similar questions.

    Tiger's legacy is tainted by all the off course stuff. I have lost most of the respect I had for him. I don't think I will lose respect for Spieth for the same reasons. Heck, a case could be made that I would rather take Matt Kucher's career over 99% of the tour. Here is a guy who is happy, well off and a family man. But he does wear Sketchers...

    Spieth is just about 16 years younger than Woods. When money becomes the object in sports it becomes just a job. For great players in sports like golf and tennis it's about the chase to greatness and not money. I think when you are playing for yourself the mentality is different than when you are playing for a team. Tiger is done with the chase now and Spieth is just beginning the hunt. I'd rather be Spieth.
