Chris:

Is this article about the PGA as a major or a story on Phil?

Check the stats, 93 of the top 100 ranking...what other field can say that?
Majors are determined by field...not by tickets sold!

Keep to subject matter where you have a clue. Majors are not your area of expertise!

The number of tickets sold is certainly an indicator. I would think the public's interest is a factor in what determines a major.

Majors are not determined solely by field. The status of "major" is a nebulous equation, and I'm pretty sure you aren't the sole arbitrator, Robert.

So stick to what you obviously don't know, Robert.

Stick to selling burgers, something you have a remote clue about...it's your best gauge of "majors"...

Chris you think Tiger Woods will win 2 majors! Possibly he might, but the reality is that at this moment his driving is not great.
He won at the British because it doesn't matter where you drive it as long as you are long. From 2nd shot on Tiger is simply the best at the moment.
At the PGA, you need to be able to drive the ball straight. That is where Tiger is suffering and if more major courses were set up like this Tiger would struggle more.

Phil had a wobble Saturday. He still has a great chance. I think Vijay will be tough on Sunday.

Chris/Tim:

From the looks of the crowds at Baltusrol this week, public interest certainly exceeded any of your expectations.

Now, get back to something you gotta' clue about. We don't need senseless forecasts from two-bit writers like you.

The PGA CHAMPIONSHIP continues to lead all majors with top 100 players and gallery!

Better get your ticket early for Medinah next year!

Sole arbitrator? While I guess technically that is correct, that's a pretty amateurish mistake for a "professional" journalist. Try arbiter on for size Tim, it'll make you sound more legit.
