DON'T BE SILLY...woods is at best honorable mention (even if he isn't)...he NEVER competed against the caliber of players like the previous 2/3 generations.....if so, he maybe would have 1/2 majors....bump NELSON,HOGAN,SNEAD,PLAYER UP and toss 'em up for placement.....ANY of these golfers playing one on one with woods would blow him away..his listing is an insult

Well, I disagree regarding Woods BUT, there is no way anyone can compare how well one player from one generation would do against another player in a different generation. It is impossible.

Morals and ethics do count Woods is pretty low. Nicklaus is the greatest hands down.

The top 5 would be the 5 with the career grand slam: Sarazan, Player, Nicklaus, Hogan, and Woods.
