I doubt the $10 mil prize means anything to Tiger or Phil. It's about playing best in front of the live audience against each other. Phil seems less driven than Tiger.

Tiger played well. Not being a Golfer, I think he played fantastic. I am a bit tired of the hype associated with the FedEx Cup. During each match/tournament, on TV, they continue to talk about projections. If Tiger/Phil/Stricker wins the projection is... the FedEx Cup is meant to make money. Ten mill for the winner but what are the sponsors going to make; can we count that high. It is not about how many of the playoffs Tiger or Phil play in, it is how much money do the the backers lose by either one not playing; how much can they make off the best players in the world. For the sponsors its about how much they can make off the players. For the players its about winning, period. I have more respect for Tiger and Phil for playing to win than I do for the sponsors and media trying to make money like NASCAR. Golf is not NASCAR and if it ever resembles NASCAR I for one will stop watching it. I want to also mention the lack of respect there seems to be for Jim Furyck. I believe he is actually number 2 not Mickleson. But all you here is Tiger and Phil being the two best players in the world. Furyck deserves more respect; he has played injured just like Phil but noone makes excuses for his missing a cut or playing poorly. I have never known Johnny Miller to interview another player by cell phone during a tournament on TV. What is that all about? If Phil wanted to be apart of the BMW he should have played. Tiger wasn't interviewed by phone when he didn't play but Phil did. That was really poor taste by Johnny Miller and NBC.

Phil made the call, not Johnny. Golf is a serious head game. The vast majority of us "golfers" have the skills and knowledge to play the game until we let our heads in. I think Phil was doing some gamesmanship, ie, playing head games. Hope it doesn't backfire.

M Thomas--------- Here is a possible reason for all the hype with Phil/Tiger. Tiger was number one seed going in the the four tournaments. Didn't show for the first tournament. Phil was top seed going into last weeks tournament. Didn't show. The number one and two seeds don't show---makes for something that the announcers will talk about, whether its important or not. No talk about Furyck because he hasn't really done anything. Also, Mickelson has been number two in the world rankings for at least two weeks that I know of.

There is no substance, when you get down to it, none that can be taken seriously anyways. You come across as a bitter ex junkie, I don't know, maybe you are back on the pipe. You used to have some coherency involved with your ranting, some legitimate points! But now, I'm really not sure what you think you are accomplishing by the way you portray yourself on here. Again, it doesn't matter do any of us on here it's the people around you, I can't imagine how they must feel if this is truly who you are.

60 wins is pretty incredible, not only because of the years played but the tourniment to wins ratio is amazing.

Yep, it sure is. He has won 26% of the PGA tournaments that he has entered. This does not count all the victories he has had worldwide and non PGA sponsored events in the US. Quite an accomplishment and he, as some experts say, hasn't entered his prime or just starting to enter his prime. So, I would guess there is more to come. lol

I have always admired Tigers play. I do not, however, think that he gives as much back too golf/PGA as he should. Except for the kids. If Tiger wants to break Jack's record then he needs the PGA as much as the PGA needs him. Somebody elsewhere said that Tiger does not need the PGA at all. He can lose his card and still play the four majors on exemptions. This person was quickly told that if he then beat Jack's record it would be OFFICIAL since Tiger would not be a member of the PGA. I don't think Tiger would go for that.

I'm the one who said that about Tiger playing on exemptions and I hold to that. Anyone who plays in a PGA sanctioned event is eligible for whatever that brings, including all records, ie, scores and victories. The winners are the winners.

No, it wasn't you Mike. I'm not sure his record would be entered into the record as most wins(majors) by a PGA member. It wouls show him as the most wins by a Non-PGA member. I don't think he would like that. Anyway, I am probably wrong but, what the hell, I am an old man and coming to the end of the trail.

Well, hopefully I will be around to see. I figure with a little luck I will be here for around 15 more years. Tiger should have it wrapped way before then.

I think his greatest asset was taught to him by his father: Golf if a "gentleman's" game and his father taught him to act accordingly. There have been many negative things written and said about him, but he always takes the high road and does not respond in kind. Win or lose, he is a gentleman.
