That's Tiger talking and it translates to, Doug, I think you've crossed under one too many airport metal detectors. Our beloved AP writer's unrequited love of the game led him to dig up a stat that reveals Tiger has had 50 different runner-up finishers in his PGA Tour victories.
The milestone even caught Woods by surprise, based on the fact he said nothing for a few seconds and even then had little to offer except for, "Where do you come up with that?"
Alright Doug, I admit it's amazing (and on behalf of everyone, I thank you for not quoting some player saying how it speaks to the extraordinary depth on the PGA Tour!).
But I thought this bit from Geoff Ogilvy later in the piece was more interesting:
"Here's a better stat," Ogilvy said. "Who's won the most times with him in the field?"
No surprise there, either - Singh with 13 victories, followed by Mickelson at nine.
Now, it doesn't always work both ways, because Woods has been a runner-up 20 times on the PGA Tour. He has been second to Singh and Mickelson three times apiece, with Lefty winning the tiebreaker.
