Jack Nicklaus Becomes Only Man In World To Think Tiger Will Still Break His Major Record


It seems the older Jack NIcklaus has got, the better his quotes have become. Think of it like your old granddad that has got to the point that he doesn't care what anyone in the room thinks, and he will comment on the size of your girlfriend's chest while everyone is enjoying Thanksgiving dinner.

But Nicklaus said something on Wednesday that really surprised me. Nicklaus said he thinks that Tiger Woods will still break his major championship record, and is fairly surprised the fifth golfer in the world hasn't bounced back yet.

"I still think he'll break my record," Nicklaus said Wednesday before playing a round in the Honda Classic pro-am. "I'm surprised that he has not bounced back by now. He's got such a great work ethic. He's so determined to what he wants to do."

“He got maybe off the track, but I think he’s really a principled kid,” Nicklaus said. “Did he have some wayward … ? Yes. But are we all perfect? No.”


I think for the game of golf, Tiger bouncing back and knocking out a few more majors would be great, but it seems nearly impossible now that Woods could get to 19. He's at 14 now, so Tiger would have to win five more before his career ends. At age 35, that means Tiger probably has seven solid years left of actually being a factor in every major (sure, Nicklaus won at 46, but the game has changed now), so he'd have to win a major in five of his next seven seasons, which seems extremely difficult considering the talent golf has right now.

Think about it like this - since 2006, we've had just one golfer win multiple majors in a single season (Padraig Harrington) and have had eight different major winners in the last eight majors played. It isn't as easy to get hot and reel off a couple in a row anymore. Too many guys are too good, and Tiger is now in a place where he will have to bring his A+ game to the big four to even contend. Sad, but true.

So, yes, Tiger still has a chance to do it, but I just don't see it, which is crazy to think since we were all so convinced back in the early 2000s.

Also, any chance Nicklaus is tossing a little jinx at our man? "Sure, no chance he isn't going to break my record, he has to, it's his destiny" while he snickers to himself?

Tiger finished t-4 in two majors last year with maybe his C game. Not sure he really needs his A+ game to win a major. Older players are contending more often now, and he's still ahead of Jack's pace. Not saying he will, but it's definitely still doable.

I love the prognosticating - have you won the power ball yet?.
Golf is a fickle game and as Westwood says golf form is fickle. People keep harping on there are so many good players around now, so Woods cannot win majors. Show me the good players who are winning majors, name them. There are no more certainities of these good players winning majors as well as Woods winning majors. It is all mere speculations.It is funny that you are dismissing the greatness of Phil, Ernie, Goosen ,Vijay, Furyk, Paddy etc. The good players trying to make their mark cannot yet be mentioned in the same breath until they fulfil their potential, and only time will tell.
