Jack Nicklaus and Other Golfers on Tiger Woods

  • Published: 24 June 2015
  • Jack Nicklaus has never veered from one simple opinion: Tiger Woods is going to break his major championship record.

    He has said so repeatedly. In the mid-2000s, when Woods was collecting major championships like dust, it seemed obvious – back then just about everybody thought Woods would not only set the record but would blow past Nicklaus’ 18 majors and put it miles and miles in his rear-view mirror. How many could he win? Twenty-five? Thirty? More? It all seemed possible.
    But then things began to slow down. Woods badly hurt his knee. He came back and did the unthinkable – lost a head-to-head fourth-round duel with Y.E. Yang. Then, there was the tabloid fiasco, the apology, the sluggish play, the swing changes, the constant injuries.
    All along the way, though, Jack Nicklaus continued to insist that Woods will break his record.
    And he does so still.

    What!!!!!!!! No way was jacks opposition better then tigers opposition! Tiger has made EVERYONE BETTER! Hands down! I think the top ten players of today would all been number #1 in the 60s and 70s I don't think jack would make the same comment now, this interview was twenty years ago.

        All of jacks majors were played on same courses..they never redesigned or lengthen any of his wins in his entire career..tigers had to play pretty much new tracks every year. Jack in this era would've never won 18..at best 2-5

          Yes! Tom Watson was the only older golfer that said why are they changing golf courses for Tiger. They never did that for Jack when Jack was winning ...

        82 wins in the modern area. End of story. TW best ever. If the duct tape and screws hold him together he might get a few more.

          The true mark for the greatest golfer is not majors. Tiger is chasing the wrong idea. The real true and only mark of the greatest golfer ever is a combination of your character, integrity, also your skill . Tigers daddy gave him the wrong dream. He goofed that up cheating on Elin. Plus multiple others. Jack will always be the best no matter what. Jack is every bit of what tiger lacks. Tiger is a lousy role model. Jack has already earned the BEST ever title for here to eternity. WELL DONE JACK!

            When you can't beat Tiger how about talk bad about him just to make yourself feel great instead beat Tiger in golf OMG 🤔never mind forgot you didn't make it to top 20 when Tiger was the leader on the boards. 🙄

              I get what your saying but jack was like 700 when they were playing the same tournaments, I think tiger is the greatest ever but it’s not as easy to say with that argument

            Ok let’s get it right jack has 18 majors , 19 runner up in majors , and 43 top 3’s in majors so that’s being a dominant player for 20 years ⛳️⛳️👍👍absolute winning machine

              WINNING IS THE ONLY THING THAT MATTERS CHUMP. Shows TRASH depth in the field too.Tiger has more PGA WINS period than Jack and a higher win % in majors than Jack. TIger >>>> Jack

            Sorry Jack and all his 55-65 year old fans, but the PGA Roster in Tigers generation, it’s much more concentrated with highly skilled players than Jack’s Era. It’s simply fact.

              I think Jack is the best ever! Longevity, most majors, senior opens, large family, design etc. he's the best ever, I love Tiger but thats how I feel.

              Reading the comments people are harping about equipment and skill etc. I have watched golf for over 40 years and I can tell you this, Tiger has a better short game overall. Jack never holed out so many chip and flop shots that Tiger has. Also, I know people will have a crack, but in reality, when Jack played, there were probably 20 to 30 guys who could win, now it is 70 to 80 who can win.

              And people forget, the courses on average are much longer and tougher now than in Jacks time. For instance, the length at Augusta National has constantly evolved, and in the last 20 years the course has gone from 6,985 yards to the current 7,475 yards. That is basically another Par 4 added to the course. And In 1999, a second cut of fairway was introduced, and In 2002, the course had lengthened nine holes, adding 285 yards, and made numerous fairway and bunker changes. Also the trees are twice as tall now compared to Jacks time.

              So now, hazards are more in play so the players have to think more about whether they use a driver or use an Iron. Course management is really needed these days. Heck, even the course I play at has been lengthened and toughened up to account for the young payers smashing the ball. But we will never know who is the best because they never played against each other. One last point, #1 rankings since being introduced in 1986 -

              1. Bernhard Langer - 3

              2. Seve Ballesteros - 61

              3. Greg Norman - 331

              4. Nick Faldo - 97

              5. Ian Woosnam - 50

              6. Fred Couples - 16

              7. Nick Price - 44

              8. Tom Lehman - 1

              9. Tiger Woods - 683

              10. Ernie Els - 9

              11. David Duval - 15

              12. Vijay Singh - 32

              13. Lee Westwood - 22

              14. Martin Kaymer - 8

              15. Luke Donald - 56

              16. Rory McIlroy - 95

              17. Adam Scott - 11

              18. Jordan Spieth - 26

              19. Jason Day - 51

              20. Dustin Johnson - 81

              21. Justin Thomas - 4

              22. Justin Rose - 1

              23. Brooks Koepka - 1

              Greg Norman at 331 weeks and 2 Majors, Tiger at 683 and 15 Majors. Jack is not on the list as he won his last major in 1986 which was his last on Tour before joining the Champions Tour. Also Jack won 73, and Tiger has 81 and still going.

              Overall, I rate Jack as one of the best, but I think Tiger would have the edge on him. IMHO


                Greg Choke Norman should not be in this conversation fuck adam scott - badley along with Norman cant even sit on Tigers toilet !! the fuck you wish you could all 3 players who aint reached half of tigers wins let alone majors put together = tigers wins .................. facts untill Tiger passes Jack he owns the crown time will tell and we all shall see .... so see you guys the day tiger passes if and if he doesnt then he doesnt who cares about norman badley or fuckboy scott they dont matter today or tomorrow

                I would like to point out that the competition that Tiger had to face was less than Mr. Nicklaus did. I have played golf and watched the game for over 30 years and the bunch at Tigers time was more compact (only a handful of players won majors) and at the of Mr. Nicklaus there were about 20 players who won majors. And I am not even talking about the equipment that both players had to work with. It's more science now than at the time of Mr. Nicklaus. The Legend lives with Mr. Nicklaus still but Tiger has everything to be a Legend in his own right. My respect for the way he won the Masters. Brilliant.

                    @Rudy Gabo Thats why he's the ....GOAT. Most Vardon trophies won, the unbreakable Cut streak (a la Favres iron man streak), Most PGA Player of the year awards, most tournaments won, most WEC Championships won. GOAT. GOAT GOAT.

                    Tiger Woods won 3 consecutive U.S. Junior Titles, followed by 3 consecutive U.S. Amateur Titles. No one will ever break these records EVER.

                      Like Jack said ...he still have to do it ! Golf is the most difficult sport i ever played ..an automatic win based on talent or anything else is non excisistent ...you have to work really hard and even than its not a guarantee !

                        The thing about then and now is in Jack's day there were only four or five elite. In tiger's era when he first came out there was tiger then everyone else. Now there are twenty or more players that could win on any give weak on any given course. Now you put tiger back in the equation. The great thing is tiger 2.0 is a better person and is more at ease with himself. If he can stay healthy golf just got the infusion it needed. This should be fun.

                          You are right. I remember old videos of Jack and Arnold talking about they only had to worry about beating 2-3 guys in a tournament

                        The reason the opposition Tiger faced in his prime wasn’t full of major champions, was because Tiger dominated and won everything for like 7 years. Jack never dominated Golf like Tiger did, he was just consistently winning a major every season for his whole career, so there where still other guys winning too.

                        If you are talking about talent, then there is no doubt in my mind that prime Tiger was a much better player than Nicklaus, he was a much better player than anyone ever. Winning US Opens and Masters by like 15 shots, is something no one else could do.

                        Nicklaus definately had the edge in terms of consistancy and longevity in his career. Obviously Tiger has had his problems, a lot of them self inflicted, and some like the injuries just down to bad luck.

                        So you could say Nicklaus has had the better career, but in terms of talent there is no doubt Tiger has way more talent IMO

                          @Daniel McConnell The high amount of 2nd place finishes suggests a SERIOUS lack of depth. They had to Tiger Proof golf courses to stop him from killing Jacks record.

Great golfer, but he never faced these fierce, in shape, no fear competitors. Sorry...Tiger is the GOAT. He changed golf. Forced people to become fit of body and mind. No other has done that. Today he showed it again. Simply the GOAT

                          To me, Tiger is the greatest golfer ever. Maybe not the best, but he's the Michael Jordan of golf. People who don't know anything about golf know who Tiger Woods is. People who don't give a crap about golf know who Tiger Woods is. When you say the word "golf" to somebody, one of their first thoughts is going to be Tiger Woods. You can't say the same about Jack. If you ask somebody who doesn't care about golf who Jack Nicklaus is, they probably won't know. So, Tiger may not be the best, but he's the greatest.

                            @Heisenberg-SchrodingerEmc2 that's your opinion. They had to change golf courses coz of him??? Had nothing to do with golf ball and club technology? You know that Jack Nicklaus once said to Lee Trevino " if he knew that they will keep a record of winning majors , he would have tried harder in quite few of them".

                            He IS the best. MORE CUTS made than Jack, more PGA Player of the Year Awards (golfs MVP), more Vardon Trophies (lowest scoring average), etc etc. TIger has, BY FAR, won a far higher % of majors he's entered in. Jack is great, but peak Tiger would make him look like everybody else.

                            @K H I don't know them personally, but what I have seen on video, for me personally Jack is by far the greatest. Just check out the so called tiger roar at the 16th hole at the last masters, than watch the BEAR roar at the 16th 1986 masters. You will spot the difference immediately. The players on that masters said, everytime Jack was putting or even hitting a shot, they were hold back their shots coz of the roar that was coming. I was watching the hole masters this time and couldn't see that with tiger. There was roars but not on that scale.

                            @Jolic Ante Your logic is flawed. Tiger is a phenom for the ages. He brought people of all ages into the game like no one else. You don't believe me, check out the Nike and Taylor Made and general tee time sales after this latest Masters win... Nicklaus was a phenomenal golfer, period. Golf is not about conduct on and off the field.
                            Personally, I wouldn't hang out with either of these guys. Tiger seems self-absorbed and so does Nicklaus. Nicklaus seems miserable to me and he's doing the whole "kids hospital" thing as a image booster.

                            Jack has not only won the most majors in over 3 decades 18 in all 2 more as Amateur he also had more second and third places than anyone that played the game. So Tiger was very good but he is getting to old and inconsistent to catch Jack now.

                              Tiger 3 straight Junior Amateurs, 3 straight Amateurs titles...6 STRAIGHT. .GOATTTT by farrr. Look at the Vardon trophies for goodness sakes. The CUT record. Lol. I find it laughable people think Jack was better. They don't play golf. Woods short game alone is miles better and Woods is THE GREATEST IRON PLAYER EVER. Bar none.

                              NO player except for MAYBE Bobby Jones could make the shot Woods in the Bell Canadian Open. GOAT

                              The field Tiger had to beat to get 15 majors. Jack would be lucky to win 10 in the same era. Why do you think no other single player today can even win 8 majors???. And to do the TIGER SLAM. Forget it Tiger woods doesnt even need 18.

                              At 81 wins and 15 majors with the tigerslam And 650 plus weeks as world number 1. He is the greatest player that ever lived

                              @Terry JP LOL would you bet your life on it? :) Tiger is the gold Mozart. 3 wins in his last 13 months. ONLY one player on tour has more. GOAT.

                              your right he ain't no tiger woods. Jack has 3 more Major wins then woods. It is 2019, woods will NEVER get 3 more Majors. Period.

                              Jack knows better than I. The idea of who has done or will do what when is a distraction from what they are doing now. It's going to be interesting to see how Tiger navigates his return against these great young players, many of whom have taken his cue on physical conditioning which gave him an edge in his prime.

                                  Jack swing was not the best?It gained him 18 majors which means it was very good,not as stylist as today players that your opinion, in his prime it looked magnificent,cheek out his 1 iron shots in majors nothing more pure in the game of golf ,I doubt if Tiger even carries a 1 iron,as for his putting style,it a style that won him plenty why change it for good looks?Will tiger beat Jacks record ,in my opinion not likely may win another major but yet to win a pga tournament,as for all the records being held by black men,which sound like you have a dog in this fight,how many swimming records?How many tennis records? Boxing ever heard of the guys from Mexico? or the big Russian that held the heavy weight title for a few years.

                                The level of competition in the Wood era is way deeper than in Jack's there were 5 or 6 greats with Jack in Tiger's world there were 20 from all over the world Tiger without ever winning another major is the best EVER!!!!!!!

                                  Tiger woods is certainly one of the top players ever,but to suggest that Jacks opponents was some what less talented than tiger's is not quite correct, tiger had a few player and very few, that where absolute champions to beat,Jack had a plenty. Lets start with Arnie seven majors,winner of 95 tournament ranked sixth all time,how many player has Tiger beat that has that record?Gary player, nine majors,165 tour wins,how may of tiger opponent can get close to that? Lee Trevino, Six majors,92 tour wins ,ranked 8th all time, Tom Watson,eight majors,second at the age of sixty in the British open 2009,I'm pretty sure tiger was playing in 2009,you see it not about quantity it about quality, the guys Jack had to beat where a very consistently talented group of players,honorary mentioned to Casper, Miller ,Floyd

                                I don't care what yall say, Jack played in a less developed game against guys that were not as athletic. Both Jack and Tiger are great players, but Tiger changed the game.

                                  Actually Palmer changed the game to what it is today,and if you do not belief that these guys where not athletic,have a look at Palmer as a young man,check out Jack athletic school record and many say Slamming Sammy could have excelled at any sport he turn his hand to.

                                    @Robert M Tigers short game DWARFS Jacks. I honestly think the relativistic nature of the sport makes these comparisons futile; however, I bet my life if you polled every PGA golfer active and retired, they would put Tiger over Jack. The DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY of the shots Tiger Woods has hit DWARS anything I have seen from the golden bear. Tiger, imo, is precipitously better than Jack. And if Majors are the SOLE criteria for GOAT then why even have these debates? Just list the most major winners and who ever has more wins. It's silly. Tournaments count. Performances count. DOMINANCE counts. Tiger is the best ever. Period.

                                    More vardon trophies, Jack played 5 countries (max), Tiger is playing 80 countries. LOL at the irrational nostaligia.

                                    In Tiger's 2018 return he started something like 300th in the world rankings...And 6th in the British open and 2nd and if 2 putts went in maybe PGA champion...he will win a major again.
                                    Even if he doesn't he is still statistically and by all accounts: either the greatest player ever or the second greatest ever ...I prefer to say he is tied with Jack as the two best ever by a mile.

                                    Well said, and I think the Tiger Slam is even more of an accomplishment than than a single season Grand slam if its ever achieved.

                                    The Tiger Slam went from the 2nd major of 2000 which I think was the US Open and was won with his winning of the Masters in Augusta in 2001, meaning he had to be in Major winning form for about 10 months.

                                    In the grand slam, if it's ever done, it's a case of peaking and maintaining major winning form from April to August (I believe, off the top of my head) in whatever given year.

                                    So Grand Slam: peaking for 4-5 months

                                    Tiger Slam: peaking for 10-11 months

                                    Case closed.

                                    Thats just bunk Randall Martin.If you were to have a debate on who the greatest player I think Tiger is probably greatest golfer of all time but its ridiculous to compare different generations for Greatness when it's all said and done. The generation of Tiger and all the all time greats is not even close to who Nicklaus had to compete against. Take the top 15 greatest of all time and ask yourself how many were competing against Jack and how many competing against Tiger. Trevino, Palmer, Casper, Floyd, Watson, Player all in their prime in Jack's era.

                                    Maybe the depth of second level is deeper with Tiger but so what. But as I said I would still vote for Tiger as greatest but ask me tomorrow and i probably say it's Jack.

                                  Nicklaus tries to straddle the fence regarding Tiger...and to protect his own REPUTATION...he will never say anything bad about Tiger. He knows...as does everyone else....that Tiger is finished. At least Gary Player has the GUTS to say it like it is-----Tiger will NEVER win another MAJOR....and possibly may never win another PRO tournament.....ever. Too many SWING COACHES...and WEIGHT LIFTING....ruined Tiger's swing...and destroyed his knees and his lower back. Especially....the very last coach that Tiger had-----totally destroyed his swing. Tiger is finished....and don't expect to see him on the Senior Tour, either.

Today you have to beat 25 players who would beat every other old time player. Its a completely different game now.

                                    J. Mad why does everyone keep saying this? It’s golf. You play against the course. The course difficulty hasn’t changed. Not only that, the equipment is 10 times better today than it was then. I’m not saying one is better than the other but I just hate the “competition was nothing back then” argument. Such nonsense.

                                    Really? Name any player in Tiger's era the caliber of Palmer, Player, Seve, Watson, Johnny Miller, Trevino. Maybe Phil and that is it and Phil wasn't clutch back then.

                                  Nicklaus is a great man and a great golfer. I would question his idea that he faced tougher competition though, modern golf not only has an incredible deep field but most are in tip top shape. I think Jack has selective memory on that one.

                                    @Richard Woods is the GOAT. A lot of people are in denial. I bet my life savings if you asked every pro player active and retired, Tiger would be ranked #1 ahead of Jack.

                                    I Luv Jack but he's high - the reason he makes that statement is b/c they had a handful of all time greats during his tenure but what Jack omits or maybe doesn't realize is that when Jack played there were ONLY a handful of players talented enough to win a Major
                                    There are at Least 5X as many Great golfers who could win majors today - that's why So many Win
                                    It's like the World Series of Poker - back to back top 10 finishes today w/ 50K Great players is WAY more impressive than a guy winning repeat Titles in the 70's against a field of a Hundred w/ only about 20 Top players
                                    Tigers Woods is Easily the Greatest Golfer of All Time & other than Michael Jordan who I would consider Tigers Equal in Intensity but is Not as Great as Tiger - but Tiger might be the GOAT or all American Sports
                                    And for some context - Tiger's 2000 US Open where he finishes 15 Shots ahead of the field - breaking the old Record of 13 shots - that's ALL 4 Majors - was set in 1862!~!~!~!
                                    Let that Sink in
                                    Tiger's 4 day performance at Pebble Beach in the 2000 US Open where tied the ALL Time US Open record score of -12 but 2nd place was +3
                                    The ONLY thing that compares w/ those 4 days by Woods - NOT in Golf - but in ALL of American Sports History is Secretariat winning the Triple Crown in 1973 at a time when the last Triple Crown Winner was 25 years earlier in 1948 & experts believed the Triple Crown could Never be Won again b/c the field was So deep
                                    not only does Secretariat win the Triple Crown but he Dominates the field setting ALL time Historical Speed / Time records in EVERY Triple Crown race - the Kentucky Derby, The Preakness & the Belmont
                                    And ALL 3 Records STILL stand today in 2019! We've ALL seen the Insane Belmont Win - which is considered the Greatest race of ANY Horse in All of Thoroughbred history - where the track announcer yells "Secretariat is moving like a Tremendous Machine!"
                                    And indeed that race was unprecedented & Still is but what many people don't realize is the Preakness & Kentucky wins were just as impressive
                                    At the Preakness the Super Horse Secretariat makes a move on the 1st turn that is considered the Most astonishing feat in thoroughbred history where in under 200 yards Secretariat goes from last to 1st around a hair pin turn
                                    Watching it even now it Still seems Not possible b/c No horse Before or Since can do what that horse did
                                    Since the 1st Kentucky Derby run 145 years ago in 1875 Only 3 Horses have Ever ran the 1 & 1/2 mile race in Under 2 min flat - Monarchos in 2001 ran 159.97, Sham in 1973 ran prob 159.80 & Secretariat also in 1973 Still holds the record at 159.40
                                    Think about that - in 1973 Sham - ran (what would have been) the Fastest Kentucky Derby in History and LOST
                                    There have been so many great Sports Super Stars in history but I can't think of Any individual who demonstrated the Consistent Dominance of Woods & Super Horse Secretariat is the Only athlete I can think to compare

                                    You cant compare plain and simple ! Did Jack had the same materials Tiger have ? The courses are completely different ..when you compare you need to put everthing at the same level wich is impossible ...so who’s the best ...in this era Tiger is and Jack was in his ...there is no Goat in any sport !
