Awful lot of hot takes for a new account. You wouldn't be a troll, would you?

I like goats. Just don't think there is one in any sport. To many variables. Great for all us typing warriors though.

This is the day Tiger lost all claim to being the GOAT. He folded like a cheap lawn chair. Ye Yang looked like the Tiger woods of the mid 200s when he hooked his hybrid to 4 feet on 18th. 

 

Here is a recap of the chokejob Tiger had

 

Give credit where its due, AcesAZ called this immediately after the fact

 

 

Tiger Woods was never the same after that. He was embarrassed on the national stage. Exposed as no longer unbeatable after 54 holes.

That Sunday in August of 2009 showed why Tiger is not, and never will be the GOAT

and today is the day you are full of poo-poo ...

Even Homer nods; Woods was one hell of a closer. The loss to Y.E. Yang pales in comparison to the body of Woods' work- 55 wins out of 59 attempts. 

In fact, Woods really only had serious trouble against journeymen and little known players:

  • He had a one shot lead after 54 in the 2000 PGA and barely beat Bob May in a playoff.
  • He had a three shot lead after 54 in the 2005 Masters and beat Chris DiMarco in a playoff. 
  • He beat Rocco Mediate in a playoff at the 2008 US Open after having a one shot lead after 54.
  • You could also consider the 1999 PGA when he best the recently turned pro and 19 year old Sergio Garcia by a stroke after being tied for the 54 lead.

I don't like Woods. I think he's a d--k and I think Nicklaus was better but it's wrong to call him a choker.  And when you look at his performance in the 2019 Masters- down by two after 54 only to best three big names, Koepka, Johnson, and Schauffle- after overcoming all kinds of (mostly self inflicted) travails, Woods' greatness cannot be denied. He is not a choker.

The OP waited 12 years to unleash this hot take. That's some dedication.

🤦‍♂️ Patience is a virtue - or so they say .... but that’s a long stalk.
