    then they went afoul in personal matters.

    Tyson was too limited anyway (too short for a heavyweight)

    Woods may yet salvage his legacy - right now has the most tour wins ever -but it is the majors in golf that matter.

    tiger has 14 majors (2nd all time)

    tiger reached 14 majors quicker than arnold did (at an earlier age

    tiger is 2nd in all time career victories
    which he reached at an earlier age than anyone else

    until he fell apart a little over a year ago tigers winning % was OVER 25% !

    that's 1 out of every 4 tournaments....phenomenal

    and that was over an 11 year period!

    besides his victories tiger had a high % of top 10 finishes....

    when tiger was number 1 for all those years his number was 16.?

    while everyone else was BELOW 9.000

    imagine THAT......number 1 tiger 16.7
    number 2 phil 8.8

    he more than DOUBLED the number of almost EVERY OTHER golfer

    even westwood, the current number 1, has a number under 9.0

    westwood did NOT catch up to tiger...
    tiger FELL (mostly due to not playing for 6 months....when you don't play...you LOSE POINTS) down to their level....

    even the last few months of last season when so many people were declaring tiger to be dead......check his final positioning in those tournaments and you'll see a whole bunch of top 20 finishes....

    even if tiger never wins another tournament what he accomplished over those 11 years was phenomenal...
    outstanding....

    a greater 11 year run than anyone ever had before





    tiger had an 11 year period greater than ANY OTHER GOLFER EVER
    EVER

    Tyson had a very short period of glory.

    Fought mostly chumps.

    Limited by height and reach.

    Foreman would have destoyed him like he did Frazier.
