Jack Nicklaus on Tiger Woods: 'I still think he'll break my record'
Jack Nicklaus talked about Tiger Woods and the future on Tuesday, he's more optimistic than most.
Jack Nicklause went on Mike & Mike on Tuesday to talk about Tiger Woods and the Masters and, well, I'll just leave this quote right here:
"I feel very bad for Tiger. He's really worked towards my record," Nicklaus said. "I still think he'll break my record.
"As long as he is physically able to do it ... He's 38 years old and he's probably got another 10 years at least of being able to compete -- that's 40 more majors to win five of them. It shouldn't be too difficult."
Wait, shouldn't be too difficult?
It shouldn't be too difficult for Tiger to do what it's taken Phil Mickelson an entire career to do over the next 10 years after a back surgery following a knee surgery?
"But then again, I've always said he's just gotta do it. It's gonna be difficult, but if I said anything different I think I would be a jerk. So I think I better say he will do that ... and I actually believe that."
