Did anyone hear him and Stephen A Smith blabbering on about how Tiger is done and golf has no more dominant players? First of all, Tiger has more wins than any player on tour this year, he has a 2nd place finish and has two 3rd place finishes. If thats not domination through a little more than half of a season, I don't know what could be. Tiger is on pace to win 6 tournaments, thats domination if you ask me.
Then he comes with these ridiculous arguments that Tiger can't putt within 5 feet anymore. Tiger is 10th on the PGA Tour in putts from 3-5 feet and 24th overall from within 5 feet. He is 12th in total putting and 21st in strokes gained putting.
Then Skip says Tiger is afraid to hit a driver. Tiger is 3rd on the PGA Tour in total driving, he is 40th in driving percentage for drives 300+ yards which basically measures Tiger's driver since Tiger hits his drives over 300 yards.
Then he says Tiger isn't a good ball striker, Tiger is 18th in greens in regulation. Everyone seems to point out that from 100-125 yards that Tiger isn't so good, but he is at the top categories from 150+ yards.
I already knew that Skip is not too bright, but this guy is such a joke. He has absolutely no clue what he is talking about for anything. I really wonder how he keeps a job. He never can back up his statements with facts, he just makes random statements to upset people.
I would not get upset about anything skip has to say. Stephen A. doesn't know that much about golf, so he could not challenge skip on anything. This is what happens when someone is on that show who knows what they're talking about:
It seems skip is only on the show for controversy.
You really know how to hurt a guy, Paul! You appear to have lost your formerly lovable sense of humor. Why so tense? You really need to lighten up. After all, we're not curing cancer here...or solving the world's monetary problems...we're talking golf which, the last time I checked, is a game. I'm inclined to think that, if all of the contributors to this forum actually played the game of golf, all of this pettiness would be greatly diminished.
In today's 24 hour sports media world, debate and controversy seem to be the name of the game. Skip takes many positions that I disagree with and some that I agree with. In February for Black History month, Skip stated the most important and memorable sports accomplishment in his lifetime was Tiger's win at the 1997 Masters. In his opinion, it had dominance and significant social impact. While Skip takes a mostly negative view of Tiger these days, Colin Cowherd on another ESPN show is a big Tiger supporter.
Something to remember, because someone doesn't play golf at the highest levels, play to single digit handicap, or say nice things about Tiger all the time, does not make their opinions and positions worng. The real fact is disagreeing with me makes them worng.
