Great win by Tiger and he is now the leader to be Player of the Year with his 3rd win. However, he measures success by winning majors and I think that puts extra pressure on him. I think it clearly affected him in both majors this year - especially in the Open. If he would just treat those like Arnie's or Jack's tourneys I think he could win a few more and come close to Jack's 18. I dont think he will win 5 more though.
Why don't you think he'll catch Jack? I'm curious to hear your answer since you're a fellow golfer as well
Because its not easy to win majors when you get into your 40s. Tiger will face an incredible amount of pressure each major and I think that will be too much in the end to win 5 more. I also think the competition is much stronger now than ever before with some of the young guns ready to win big tourneys.
I am not saying he cant do it. I just think its more likely that he wont. Time will tell.
