Nah, Tiger's was more impressive. Clubs and balls have come a long way in 18 years. More than enough to compensate for the extra yardage.

Oh okay I guess that's why so many people have done it with all this new technology then? :roll:

So Jordan Spieth used luck and super technology to shoot 18 under at Augusta. Got it.

You know there are years where the conditions are ripe for low scores and some that aren't. Look at 2010 and 2011 for lots of low numbers. Then 2007 for contrast.

Nicklaus and Floyd went -17 in the 60s and 70s.

It wasn't the -18 number that was so unbelieveable about the 1997 Masters. It was the margin of victory.

Someone will hit -20 at some point.

Yeah I mean he should just give the damn jacket back at this point. It's the only right thing to do.

Lol. No one is saying he didn't deserve the win. Just saying he wasn't as dominant as tiger was that year, and the -18 look completely different when you compare them to what the field was doing.

I think all majors should just be Tiger vs Rory because it is like totally super gay when someone else wins. Everybody else with a tour card can just fuck off and go play Bluebonnet Hill.

Could feed a herd of cattle with the ridiculous straw man arguments going on back and forth here.

Perhaps it is just possible that both of these guys had great victories that do not require trying to figure out which one is better. Do they give an extra green jacket winning asinine message board discussions?

Without these things this board would be hurting for traffic even more than it already is.

Tiger won by 12 shots and permanently changed the game.

He wasn't just better than everyone else in every facet of the game, and it wasn't just man against boys. It was as if he was playing a completely different game.

Caught some of Rory's Persicope of his plane ride back across the pond with his mates. Lots of drunkeness. This (Periscope) has the potential for some gold.

Yeah, this Periscope thing........oh man, the possibilities.......this is trouble. The things I've watched over the last couple of days.......just pointless, yet awesome.

You don't get to be #1 on the PGA Tour in putting by rolling in a couple 20-25 footers.


There was a another good example of what I don't like today. On 18 he's trailing by one and then throws his club down on the approach. You really don't do that in the situation and context that he did it. But he's just a little whiny cry-baby so we've come to expect it. OK fine. But then we also have to listen about how mature and composed he is. When he is not.

Now the U.S. Open pool.

Same format as Masters, cut 1 per day...draft 1 additional after Sat.. All 4 final scores count. $30 per shot.

There's a multiplier for having the winner but that's random and unpredictable so what really matters for these purposes is having the 3 lowest combined scores for the tournament.

Teams are listed in their serpentine draft order, and players listed on teams in order they were selected.

Please rank these from 1 to 4:

A
Justin Rose
Dustin Johnson
Henrik Stenson
Patrick Reed
Brooks Koepka
Francesco Molinari

B
Rory McIlroy
Jason Day
Matt Kuchar
Martin Kaymer
Brandt Snedeker
Lee Westwood

C
Jordan Spieth
Adam Scott
Hideki Matsuyama
Jimmy Walker
Billy Horschel
Jim Furyk

D
Phil Mickelson
Rickie Fowler
Sergio Garcia
Bubba Watson
Jamie Donaldson
Ryan Moore
