I'm not a big golf fan but, over the years, I have kept up with the happenings on the mens tour. The Woods vs. Nicklaus comparison is a tough one to make because these two excellent golfers are from different eras. During the hey-day of Nicklaus, he had a great rivalry with Arnie Palmer. Fans and members of the sports media were always offering their opinions concerning which of the two was the best. But, these days, it seems as if everyone agrees that Woods is head and shoulders above all of the other PGA golfers. He is automatically expected to win every tournament that he plays. The fact that no one, including Woods, can realistically be expected to "win em all" doesn't detract from the fact that fans expect him to do so. As magnificent as Nicklaus was, he had so many other great golfers to contend with, such as Palmer, Trevino, Player,Watson, etc. that he was not automatically considered to be the favorite in every tournament. One thing's for certain, Woods and Nicklaus are two of the greatest golfers of all time, perhaps running 1-2 in whatever order you choose.
