Maybe Jordan Spieth isn’t quite the household name Tiger Woods is yet, but the numbers are telling a completely different story. It seems that as far as stats go, Spieth is the clear winner between the two. He’s won more majors, made more tour wins and has a lower combined major score than Woods. He’s quite the skilled all-rounder and infographics like this that highlight that definitely give off an impression that there is no real contest.
But what really makes a “great” golfer? Is a golfer great because he’s an exceptional player? Because he wins more than the others? Or simply because his reputation precedes him? We wonder if aficionados of the game or far-reaching media networks like ESPN have the final say on a golfer’s inherent worth.
