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

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.
