    IMO -'86.

    2019 a whisker behind as far as comebacks go.

    A few other Masters would still be my favorites over 2019.

    This was special and beyond The Masters special, so like '86 in that regard.

    Just hard to compare and always a matter of opinion.

    2019, Jack was playing well when he won 86 masters. Was in top 30 in world ranking

    Today was a great win for Tiger, but Sunday 1986 was the better comeback win imo. Jack shot 65 that day, 30 on the back nine, to win.

    If winning was easy, losers would do it.

    He was down in the rankings precisely because he wasn't playing well at all.

    And rankings a bit different then.

    Close, considering Tiger was very close to never being able to play again let alone win a major, but '86 for me by a whisker...probably because I'm old.

    1. To overcome both the physical and personal issues that Tiger has faced over the past decade shows just how much determination he has. Falling so far from grace would have ended most people.

    On what is the greater achievement, I would say Tiger. On the actual tournaments, that was a great Masters, but don't think it would compare to 1986 in terms of most exciting final rounds.

    If Moli got to -15 and Tiger shot 67 again, I would say 2019, but as far as drama and heroics, '86 is still more unbelievable.

    Oh, btw, I'm a millenial(1yo in '86), Tiger super-fanboy posting this, so take it as you like.

    Today had the potential, but '86 was more exciting. I'm thrilled that Tiger won, but at the same time disappointed that not a single one of the superstars on today's leaderboard was able to post a really good number. I'd never have bet that Tiger could win shooting 70 given the generally soft conditions. Definitely a case of "weak sauce" by the contenders, but with few exceptions that's been the case in many of his wins.

    Still, all credit in the world to him for overcoming adversity and coming back from a very dark place. Good for the game for sure...

    Good points, and Jack wasn't exactly in the final group in '86.

    Arguments both ways and no wrong answer - so personal.

    **** it hurts sitting on a picket fence.

    Still '86!

    If he lost it somehow it would be magnified MUCH more than a Jack L. Even with the bad health and other issues he's overcome, a 2nd today and he would get RIPPED by many of the jack fans (not all of them).

    He would get ripped by anti-Tigerites on here and elsewhere.

    Nicklaus fans are classy, historians of the game.

    And we would NEVER rip anyone for finishing 2nd at a major! ;)

    Jack was 46 and in some kind of a slump but did not have to battle any physical injuries..
    Tiger is 43 recovering from 4 back surgeries and 3 other procedures plus past personal demons..
    I would choose Tiger by a slim margin..

    Tiger for me.

    Something to consider...

    Factor in the worldwide media blitz Tiger deals with in 2019. The added substantial pressure because the overall viewing audience is 100x bigger. If he lost it somehow it would be magnified MUCH more than a Jack L. Even with the bad health and other issues he's overcome, a 2nd today and he would get RIPPED by many of the jack fans (not all of them).

    Dudes whole life was destroyed not long ago in every regard. Outside of Jack being older and playing amazing out of the blue, in '86 he simply wasn't dealing with the motherload of hate/pressure and several other factors that Tiger wakes up to. A writer or two writing Jack off pre '86 is childs play compared to the criticism of TW.

    Ive written this before, today and again. It's the biggest day in golf history to me all things considered. There has never been a day more people have known who won a golf tournament. ITS EVERYWHERE!

    Hate to say it... but all that was Tiger induced, one way or another.. The guy hugged the most important figure in his life after his victory today - Mark Steinberg.

  • RobertBaronRobertBaron Members Posts: 769 ✭✭

    Had Tiger not won the TC and contended in 2 majors last year, I’d give it to Tiger. But those factors kind of take a bit of the surprise value out of it.
