How about using your column to admire and educate about Byron Nelson instead of taking it as a chance whine about Tiger Woods.

As for good old Lord Byron streak, total bullshit, his competitors where Q-school rejects. Even Phil the way he is playing would have won 11.

I disagree that Tiger shouldn't have said that; he's just telling the truth. Byron did something amazing, and Tiger has said that there was no way he can break it.

The year of Byron's streak: 1945. Can anyone else think of something major that was going on that year? Oh ya, a World War where most of the young men in America were shipped off to fight overseas. Byron didn't go because he had hemophilia. Fields were weaker, he admits that.

Tiger has also said Byron is the "greatest ambassador to golf the game's ever known".

I'll let this (which is nothing in the first place) slide.

Tiger Woods went to great lengths to say many wonderful, kind and personal comments about Mr. Nelson. He paid him many public compliments, expressed appreciation for what Mr. Nelson did for him (TW), for golf and for his extensive charitable efforts.

To only select one (very accurate) comment that you found to be somewhat ungracious, without any balance for the many positive things he said, appears to be rather poor form on your part and perhaps is a reflection more about you than anything negative you offered about Mr. Woods or Mr. Nicklaus for that matter.

Thanks TW. Say what you mean. I respect that about a man!

Sorry to intrude with facts, but Tiger does NOT consider his streak as continuing. He said it ended when he lost two weeks ago at Wentworth.

How can any jump on Tiger for mispeaking when he has set a standard for his great play and conduct on and off the course. The White press and those who read it have tried to pin something on Tiger but he is much to intelligent to give them anything other than the most idiotic things- (he swore and the camera caught it-should we have him barred from golf?). The great black golfers such as Teddy Rhodes,Charley Sifford,et al, were not allowed to play for years on the PGA tour 'cause they were Black. Where were the critics then
This is the cruel way of our world-We look for winners so we can turn them into losers,The Dum-Dum who wanted to take a swipe at "Liberals" in his rant should save it for the KKK meetings he goes to.

'When asked about his winning streak - which Tiger claims is still alive at five because he lost European events and it's a PGA Tour streak (this is a gripe for another day).....

Dont bother for that day. It's not even that complicated.
Tiger Woods on his streak:

"It ended two weeks ago," Woods said.
"I'm going for six in a row on our tour, But not six in a row tournament-wise, because I've played two since then and lost both."

It doesn't matter what the fields are like.
How did Nelson score during his run? Can
any Tiger Woods apologist recall offhand?
How about 19 straight rounds under 70 on
courses that were about as rough as today's
typical muni. A stroke average of nearly 68
without today's forgiving equipment?
Does that move you bozos in any way?

In stroke play, you play the course, idiots.

"In stroke play, you play the course, idiots."

You are playing against everyone else. You can beat the course and still lose in stroke play.

Nelson's achievement was brilliant, no denying that. But, remember; a 30 handicapper could win a golf tournament with no one else playing it, so obviously it's not just "playing the course".
