Tiger Woods just won the PGA Championship today. He has 13 major titles, just five behind the Golden Bear, Jack Nicklaus. Woods is barely 10 years in to his professional career, Nicklaus won 18 major titles over 25 years. With all due respect to Jack, his days of being known as the best are coming to an end.
I think Tiger is on a trajectory to become the greatest athlete of the modern era. For the sake of discussion, thinking about the past 10 years, who has been a better athlete than Tiger Woods? Lance Armstrong is surely worth noting. Roger Federer is no slouch. Do they touch Tiger? I don't think so. Who does?
