Is your position that Tiger's run is diminished because of the newer tech?
That wasn't the comment I was arguing. Below is. But, to answer your question, no I don't think Tiger's run is diminished because of the newer tech. Now read below.
Now if someone was trying to compare Tiger and Jack both shooting 64 in their primes on the exact same course and layout, then equipment is a factor. But for the purpose of GOAT discussions, equipment is irrelevant.
To which I responded...
I see that as obtuse, but we all have our opinions
To which you stated...
Feel free to disprove my logic.
To which I specifically asked...
Do you legitimately not see how ignorant that is? I'm not going to explain myself if you aren't serious.
Which led to you backtracking the argument to our first point, which was (in reference to the second quote in this post)...
Refute this. I don't think you can.
Which led to me doing so here... Second post on the page (after yours which is the first, and my first post on the page
Which then led to you firing this comment out of the blue...
I was saying that is type of comparison where equipment becomes a factor. Is it really that hard to follow?
To which two people replied - yes. (BeaverPro and I)...This led to again going back to the first part of the argument, starting the cycle over twice.
This has led to you throwing out the original argument and asking more questions which erroneously don't prove your first argument. Your next question was...
Explain to me how Jack using the same tech as his competition somehow makes Tiger's run less impressive?
Which goes back to an earlier point in the argument (again), to which I stated that it doesn't make Tiger's run less impressive.
Then you stated...
If anything, the newer tech means more people have a shot at winning compared to Jack's era, which would make Tiger's run more impressive. I dint see how you could logically argue against that.
Which is in direct contrast to your early statement saying this about advances in equipment -
It was the best for the time period. Everyone in the field has access to the same equipment, thus the playing field is leveled for superior skill to take over.
Which now goes back to the beginning of our original argument.
Are you intentionally trying to waste my time? And more importantly, does that answer your question?
