    There is no measuring stick. Golfers are better due to the technology and information in 2018. If you give golfers 20-30 years ago that same information they may be as good or better than the players of today. We simply don’t know. But you would have to train each of the golfers from different eras the exact same way, with the exact same technology in order to see a difference. But these young guys on tour now had swing coaches from an extremely...

    Yes it does factor into skill. It’s not just training to be bigger, stronger, and faster it’s also the information on things to develop your skills. Especially in a sport like golf. If you gave players from the past the same information and technology as the players from today then it would be easy to debate because they would be on a level playing field. Golf has largely been played on the same courses for a long time so we could just compare...

    It’s both. Players are better now do to the fact that they have more information and technology at their hands than ever before. There are also way more really good players than ever before.

    I’ll definitely give you that, equipment has a lot to do with it, but everyone is playing the same equipment on tour today and the volume of really good players is more than it’s ever been in the past. Yeah would it be cool to see how Jack Nicklaus would have played with a modern Driver, sure. Does it mean he would have won more majors with it? No because everyone else would have still been on the same playing field.

    Every single major sport the players are better today than they were in any prior generation. Even just 10-20 years ago. Baseball is weird because we had the whole steroid era going so who really knows how great those guys were, but I’m not afraid to say it, Mike Trout may be the most talented baseball player to ever walk this earth. I just don’t see how with the information we have available in 2018 we can say that athletes of prior generations...

    Forgot DJ was that old. The reason that no one is dominating majors is because there are so many players capable of winning majors now. We’re just going to have to agree to disagree on the subject. But the idea that players in every other sport are better now than prior generations except in golf is crazy to me.

    JT, DJ, Spieth, Rory, Day, Reed, Koepka, Rahm, Dechambeau, Fleetwood, Rickie. These are just the guys 30 and younger. That doesn’t include guys like Rose, Stenson, Bubba. You won’t find anyone who knows the ins and outs of the golf world who thinks their were better players in the late 90’s early 00’s than there are now. The fact that there are so many great young players now is because of Tiger. Tiger is part of the reason guys like DJ and...

    Tiger won his last major with his B game. Koepka may not ever play better, but that was also Tigers best weekend at a major ever and he still lost.

    There are more elite golfers now than there ever has been before. That’s not an opinion it’s a fact. A lot of these guys are mental freaks.

    Tigers B game in his prime years was equal to most of the players on tours A game. That’s not the case anymore.

    Golf is too difficult of a sport to say just because someone leading after 54 holes and loses means they folded under pressure. They probably just played poorly. Also sometimes someone behind you just plays really well. Brooks had a 4 shot lead on Tiger after 54 holes. If Brooks shoots 69 on Sunday he loses because Tiger shot a 64. 69 isn’t a bad round of golf but sometimes you just have to tip your cap.

    Just because you end up losing doesn’t mean you folded under the pressure.

    Nobody is rooting harder for Tiger than I am, and his A game may still be better than anyone else, but his B game is simply not enough anymore. He needs four rounds of his A game every week to win and he only brought it for 3 days at the PGA.

    They may feel the pressure but it doesn’t bother them. They don’t change their game to accomodate the pressure they feel. They just go out a play golf. Brooks may have well been playing a casual Sunday round with his buddies as opposed to winning the PGA.

    Tiger won majors with his B game before. That’s the biggest difference between Tiger now and Tiger then. He can’t win majors with his B game anymore. Nobody on tour can win majors with their b game.

    If Tiger is going to win another major (and count me as someone who thinks he will) it’s going to be next year. Tiger has Home field advantage in 3 of the 4 tournaments next year. If he’s being honest with himself, 2018 wasn’t about winning anything it was solely about getting in shape and being able to be playing at a high level come 2019 because it should be Tigers year.

    I mean usually when you have a 2 shot lead on everyone in the clubhouse and a 3 shot lead on your playing partner you aren’t pulling Driver on 18. These guys have zero fear. They don’t feel pressure.

    I’m a believer that Tiger will win again. But he’s going to have to adapt. In the old days when you have a lead, you leave the Driver in the bag and just try and par out. These guys pull out Driver every opportunity now no matter the lead. Koepka pulled Driver up 2 shots with everyone in the clubhouse on 18 and busted it 340. That’s what Tiger is up against. His A game now is not better than everyone else’s. His A game is on par with everyone...

    3 under on the front but still. His ballstriking with his irons is back to the level it was in his prime. Arguably the purest ballstriker in the game still. Dude just can’t hit a driver to save his damn life and still doesn’t have the old confidence standing over a putt.

    I think the biggest revelation from The Meg isn’t even anything to do with the movie but rather that Schrute Farms must have really taken off after The Office stopped filming. Dwight is now a billionaire.

    I would assume he would. He was the 3rd back last year and I was pretty impressed with him. The offense they run at Georgia is going to still be run heavy I would assume so he should get plenty of carries. He’s got the best chance of any running back in the SEC this year to win the Heisman IMO.
