What does winning the last one have to do with winning the one you're playing now?
That's why I didn't like Tiger. I don't remember seeing Jack throw a club.. I was just explaining why I didn't like him is all. Didn't mean anything by it. I also didn't like Bobby Bonilla.

I don't know if Nicklaus ever threw a club, but he was one serious ass, humorless fuck on the golf course.

If you didn't like Tiger Woods and you don't like Spieth, you probably wouldn't have liked Nicklaus.

Nevertheless-they are the three youngest golfers in history to have won three different major championships at the time they won them.

So maybe there is a correlation.

I don't like when guys do that but I admit I slam clubs and cuss when I get pissed on the course (I don't throw them though) so I guess I'm hypocritical in that regard. I used to love Tiger growing up but he really started to rub me the wrong way circa 2005. He just became such an unlikable tool, a robot in press conferences and interviews, kind of a dick to the fans, never showed much of a personality or human side, etc. Still the best I've ever seen though (jack was before my time).

I sure I'm not the only one who doesn't like 100% of the pro's. Anyway, Speith is sometimes just a big baby.. I just don't understanding the throwing of the club.. I was a big Jack fan.. Maybe I wouldn't be if he golfed today, don't know. My favorites are like Kuch, The Big Easy, ViJay Singh etc.. Nothing personal.

Oh I'm glad you let me know that it isn't personal that you like certain millionaire golfers more than other millionaire golfers, all of whom have security staff to keep regular people-like us-away from them, otherwise my feelings might of been kind of hurt.

You just seem to be taken this kind of oddly because I don't like a guy .. We all have reasons why we don't like people.. Should I like Tiger just because he was a great golfer? He was a slug.

I don't think I'm taking this oddly at all.

Winning is winning no matter how liked or not liked a player is by somebody.

If Kuchar had won he would no longer be considered the best player on the tour to have never won a major, just like Mickelson was for a long time and more recently Sergio Garcia was for a long time, and the golf world would be celebrating that just like the golf world celebrated that when Mickelson finally won a major and Sergio Garcia finally won a major.

But he didn't.

And now Speight is in a position to make history and Kuchar is still the best player on the tour to have never won a major championship.

Winning is winning. That's it.

I think you're confusing something. What does winning have to do with rooting for a player or liking said player? Or am I suppose to like all the guys who win majors? I never aid he wasn't good.. He's just not one of my favorite players.. Like the New England Patriots.

I like the players who play the game. I think Spieth is in that camp. Miguel Angel Jiminez (a favorite) is as well. Gotta prop JS for lunaring that drive on 13 and then recovering for a bogey followed by birdie-eagle-birdie. Audubon was getting jealous.

Technically don't they all play the game?
