If he retired today would you say he is the best? I just get the feeling that people put him as the best all time because of what he will probably do. Everyone think he will break all the major (events as well as in terms of big) records but he hasn't yet.
Yes, he is, right now, the greatest golfer of all time. If he were to retire before breaking the all-time majors record, how can you hold it against him? He has won more majors in a shorter amount of time than anyone in history. His domination of the competition is what makes him the best. Sure, Jack may have more majors, but throughout a really prolonged career. Tiger has done what no one else has in a shorter amount of time.
