POM is kinda like NCAA basketball polls midway in the season.
But, I remember at end of 2008, they asked Tiger who he voted for, on the player of the year. Without hesitation, he said Paddrick because he won two majors versus Tiger's one. As you remember, Tiger also had more wins that year; but in his mind, the majors were more important.
Tiger seems to believe that Jack's record of 18 majors is more significant than Sam's record of 83 wins. That's more than 4:1 ratio of greater importance for majors.
After his API win, someone asked him, if this win was a big deal (maybe not the exact words). Tiger said, "well it's not a major".
Given this, how do you think Tiger would vote? I'm remaining on the sidelines because I'm biased and unreliable.
The more prevalent question is: which was a greater accomplishment?
Bobby Jones' calender grand slam or the Tiger slam?
