This is a ridiculous post.

Tiger is no Pat Perez, or Tommy Bolt, for that matter. I don't see Tiger throwing clubs or using gamesmanship to knock a competitor off his game.

Arnie used to smoke. Jack was deemed a slow player. Hogan rarely spoke a word to his competitors.

None of them were, or are, perfect. But all in all, the criticism of Woods is unwarranted. If this is the best you have, maybe you should choose a different topic.

Oh shut up! You can't remember Arnie, Jack or Hogan...blah, blah, blah..... There weren't microphones behind every blade of grass and up there asses. For that matter, how many of Hogan's exploits were captured on film with audio.

He is who he is...he does what he does. Either enjoy or pick up a new spectator hobby.

Nobody is going to "lap the field" on Augusta National in any Masters' from now on.

Four rounds of par golf will probably take the green jacket. No runaway here.

I looked at the cut line Alex and thought I was looking at an LPGA leader board. How can records be broken if they keep tweaking the damned course? This means that all records held previously need to be trashed every time they change the setup, or the records have no meaning.

One-Putt,

The US Open record is ten under par, but Jim Furyk didn't set it at Winged Foot last year. The point is that records ARE meaningless unless they are set on the same course as the previous records in identical conditions.

The masters' committee decided a few years back that they don't want the modern equipment to turn Augusta National into a pitch and putt course. Looks like they succeeded.

The US Open record is 12 under--2000; Furyk finished at 8 under in '03.

One-Putt,

I stand corrected. Who has the US Open record and where ws it set?

I think the rest of my post is on the mark.

Golf records don't mean much, just as thoroughbred racing "records" have little relevance since races are run on many different surfaces, terrain and under many different conditions. Winning is what counts in both sports.

Alex according to this article there is another factor other than the course setup at Augusta:

US Open record? How soon we forget Pebble Beach and Tiger by 15 strokes over Els.
