"The Internet Writer of the Year says four more majors is a tall order even for a man as good as the world No 1"
I'm having a hard time imagining the New York Times touting an award won by their golf writer in a sub-headline, but that's what The Times does for John Hopkins' latest Spike Bar column. Perhaps it's a British thing to be so humble. You know like the Queen and Phillip so modestly giving Barack Obama a signed photograph of themselves, as they do with all visiting dignitaries.
Either way, "The Internet Writer of the Year" is sticking to his guns and suggestions he's not going to wager on Tiger Woods winning more majors than Jack Nicklaus.
No, it was not an April Fool's Day piece, I'm sad to say.
My view is constant on this and always has been. I will not put any money on Woods even equalling Nicklaus's record.
You mean betting on the sport you cover isn't against company policy? Love those Brits!
My money is still on Nicklaus. Woods's injured leg does appear to have recovered but say he attracts another injury, this time to the other leg or to an arm. Say he is injured in a car accident as Ben Hogan was or, dare one say it, physically attacked? What happens then?
Dare, dare. And wow, what an uplifting thought. Perhaps you'd like to detail this more? Are we talking a Monica Seles thing here? How lovely.
And you wonder why Tiger has a boat named Privacy.
