Greg Norman says he 'probably' would have beaten Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods is such an object of fascination, both for golfers and golf fans alike.
Norman got to talking about winning and what it's all about and unleashed this gem"
"A lot of people ask how I'd stack up against today's players if I had use of modern equipment. Listen, it's not about the gear. Winning is about what's in your heart and in your head. Equipment dictates how to play the game in an era, but the physical and mental skills are the same. And I had them. I never feared anything or anyone on the course, and I wasn't afraid to fail. So I think I'd do pretty well against Snead, Hogan, Tiger and Phil -- whoever. Tiger's a tough guy, but I was a tough guy on the course, too. I probably would have beat him."
Well, ok, a lot of people beat Tiger Woods. Victor Dubuisson just beat Tiger Woods in a tournament in Turkey. Zach Johnson beat him in California. He's been beat at tournaments by thousands of golfers over the course of his career.
I guess I don't really understand what Norman is saying. Does he think he would have taken Woods down at the majors? Does he think he would be better than Woods if he played today?
The entire article is actually really good but this quote is quite silly, especially without context.
The finish at Bethpage Black on Sunday should be tremendous
Jordan Spieth is out here trying to win golf tournaments and please the masses
Patrick Reed holds a two shot lead over Rickie Fowler and Emiliano Grillo after the second...
Jordan Spieth is not a very good speller
Fowler shot a 4-under 67 but couldn't stop thinking about Hazeltine
Not sure on the math here, but Spieth's general idea makes some sense
