This is, of course, very true. But the video is still pretty fascinating. I was particularly intrigued by Jason Day's admission that if he hadn't read a book about Tiger Woods when he was 14, he wouldn't be where he is today.

And how much of Tiger's success do we attribute to his form and his desire to be fit when others around him were getting rounder instead of rounding into shape? Probably not enough, according to these guys.

So maybe there isn't a Tiger in the next generation, but I bet golf as a whole is better off because of the generation that he inspired. And that will be passed down long after he leaves.

As Brandt Snedeker said:

"Tiger Woods doesn't have a rival, but it pushes everybody to get a little bit better."
