re: What percentage chance would you give Tiger to beat the Nicklaus record?
I doubt that he stays healthy, that will be the biggest problem.

re: What percentage chance would you give Tiger to beat the Nicklaus record?
2% at best. I doubt he ever wins another major, and his knee at this point is a ticking time bomb. It's already heavily reconstructed, and now you're asking an older body to handle the insane force he puts on it.

Solely based on this prediction and the source, he might win 10 more

NorthTiger nailed it...

...it is all about TW’s driver. Valspar is a dibble and dunk course for the pros.

If Tiger has a reliable driver in the bad, he has a shot.

There have been 14 majors won by guys older than 42 and another 8 at 42.

Julius Boros is the only one with 2 among them.

re: What percentage chance would you give Tiger to beat the Nicklaus record?
He needs 4, which would be a Hall of Fame career for anyone else. It will be pretty tough. Time and age aren’t on his side plus the field is tougher now than it was 10-15 years ago.

That said, I think just winning one will be the hardest for him. There will be so much pressure when he finds himself in contention. However, if he gets that monkey off his back and wins one, then all bets are off. He’s looked better the last few weeks than he has in years so maybe he’s not done yet.

Would be one of, if not the best comeback story of all time. If anyone could pull it off it would be Tiger Woods.

He won't beat the record, it's too late. But he'll get 1 more Masters before he's done.

re: What percentage chance would you give Tiger to beat the Nicklaus record?
If he stays healthy and gets one this year I’d go with 5-10 percent. Physically (minus the injuries ) he’s not a normal guy in his 40s. He just needs to get one and get it mentally off his chest that he can do it.

Zero.

Today's new wave of really good players all hit it as far or further than Tiger when he's on.

Just too many good young players these days. Now if Tiger had Phil's short game he'd have a chance.

Let’s see how he does at Augusta where he has to be long and accurate with a driver.



He needs to worry about his putting as well.

He missed way too many at Valspar.

Tiger is facing time. If he can win this year's Masters I'd say 50% chance he gets four more.

Yea, the distance is there for Tiger. He needs to stop trying to kill it off the tee, his power is back (fat chance this happens I know, but it would help tremendously).

Where Tiger will be able to win or lose will be his approach shots. Most of this past tournament he was on, and it scored showed. Sunday, his irons were just off. They have been just as inconsistent if not more than his drive recently. The driver will always bee a little wild for Tiger, always has. If he can tighten up his approach game, he has a good shot at winning a few.

That's nice. He hit it hard once.

Did he hit it 400 yards? No. I went and looked do you know where Tiger is on driving average thus year? 42nd

That 129 is not far above Dustin Johnson's average for last year. And he's not the highest average speed of guys on tour. He's 13th in driving distance. Dustin has a better short game too.

Those young kids are racking it out there far enough to be hitting irons into 550 yard par 5's a lot. They're good with those irons, and there's a bunch of them.
