The Tiger Slam with the PLAYERS mixed in there (5 biggest events in a row) has a strong case for greatest peak as well. 15 shot win in a major. I don't think we will see that one happen again. of course they haven't the rest of the world will still recovering from a world war . Who cared about sports back then aside from Americans. lol
  2. > @Golfnutgalen said: > > @Christosterone said: > > Look at Lord Byron’s win list.... > > He was absurdly dominate and retired at the height of his power... > > I'm a big fan of Nelson as well, unfortunately so many dismiss him because of his wins in the WWII era and the fact he "only" has 5 majors. Hogan's major record is impossible to dismiss, but Nelson was indeed the better player before his retirement especially in the majors: > > ![](https://i.imgur.com/RbeIAau.png "") > > **I took out 1944** here because Nelson won 8 times that year while Hogan and Snead hardly played just to give them the benefit of doubt. That was not the case in 1945 when Snead played a full schedule and Hogan played a ton late in the year. In all that season Nelson played 30 events, Snead 28, and Hogan 18. > > Also, up to 1947 Nelson had 6 second place finishes in those majors! Snead had 5 as well and Hogan had 2. > You should had taken out the whole decade. Geez playing against the weakest fields ever while Europeans are stuck at home getting bombed. Imo golf really started to level out internationally the 80's
  3. I'd be angry is I was an Aussie and he did not play! He does better in the presidents cup so I think he will pick himself
  4. > @links242 said: > Rory all class. Easy to root for. lol - the same idiot who said The Open and US Open are not important to him - Then says winning 2019 Open at Northern Ireland will be the most important open he can ever win The Olympics is a meaningless event he will never play in - then changes his tune for 2020 I could go on...but Rory is an idiot
  5. > @Golfnutgalen said: > Weird putting round actually. Made a ton of 10-30 footers and missed about 5 putts inside 8 feet. > > Also, YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is nothing weird about that. This is how Tiger has been putting for well over a decade. Look up the stats he makes more putts in 15f - 20 ft range t putts than under 5ft - 10ft range. He lost his nerve ever since 2009 and does not overthinks the makeable putts.
  6. > @Scotty1140 said: > > @Lamb said: > > He is 100% right. Brooks is leagues above Rory. Without a doubt Rory is the most overrated golfer ever and just someone who the media try to force down unto everyone. Rorys rivalry is with the Tommy Fleetwoods and Jason Days of this world. > > Brooks has been playing better golf in the bigger events than Rory the last couple of years. No one can argue otherwise. But to say Rory is the most overrated golfer ever is just plain stupid. > > Just look at the career resumes Chris posted. McIlroy’s is clearly better. > Take away Rorys good stretch 2012 - 2014 and you have an average top golfer. He got on a hot run just like Speith and he is just another top 30 player nothing outstanding.
  7. He is 100% right. Brooks is leagues above Rory. Without a doubt Rory is the most overrated golfer ever and just someone who the media try to force down unto everyone. Rorys rivalry is with the Tommy Fleetwoods and Jason Days of this world.
  8. Don't care what anyone says but you have to be incredibly stupid to use an online coach without seeing them first. No way on earth you will get real value for money. It's just utter stupidity. Golf is supposed to be one of the hardest sports and yet the only sport you are supposed to teach online? Gtfo! It's just bs internet marketing that gullible people have been sucked into. Your instructor had to physically see you for you to get real value for money. And even then no way on earth GG is worth what he is charging in person. It's utter madness but then again it's the power of social media or should I say the herd mentality. of today's society.
  9. They are no good just like many so called instructors.
  10. Hi Kurt just seen this thread I have too have Haglunds deformity and going for surgery however after reading numerous reviews of the type of surgery you had, opted out because recovery is a real nightmare and many patients have said they never got full recovery. So now the real work is recovering. Further research led me to a more preffered method which is non invasive. I am not sure if you had seen this? Surgeon I spoke to said I will be back on my feet in 3 weeks. his channel http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4O3NFjspWs
