    I was watching the Golf channel yesterday and Tiger looked as good as he ever did while practicing.

    Actually Jack got booed until Arnold got old.

    No one in the History of Golf had the following that Arnold Palmer had.

    Arnies Army.

    Jack did take the reigns over Palmer.

    The rivalry also existed off the course. Jack never could too this day could compete in the business World as well as Palmer.

    I could not stand Tom Watson. Always a pain in Jacks side. Like a little robot. Getting in the way of Jacks right to win every tournament. I don't think Tom ever had a really bad day of golf

    I am pretty sure I saw that US open in 82. You could tell Jack felt sorry for Tom and let him have one.

    It was the best Tournment Ive ever seen on TV. I remember watching it Nicklaus had 5 birdies on the front nine. For a while in the telecast they actually didnt show Watson, I think the 40' putt on 14 was tape delayed.

    A buddy of mine was watching it with me, he was a Nicklaus Fan, he literally fell out of his chair when Watson sank the chip on 17.
