The key question in golf is no longer “Can Tiger catch Jack?” Tiger’s best days clearly are behind him. With all his injuries, he’s an older golfer than he is a man, with lots of fairway mileage on him. Tiger reminds me of an old, formerly great golfer who can put a good round or two together but can no longer sustain it in the clutch. Tiger needs to worry more about Rory than he does Jack. The key question, it seems to me, is this: “Is Jack’s record of 18 major victories under more threat now from Tiger, who has 14, or Rory, who has three?” The eye test tells me that Rory now is more likely to catch Jack than Tiger is.
