Quick hit - WGC Firestone

Everyone talks about Tiger eclipsing Jack's record in the majors as the standard to which he'll be held as the possible best player of all time. I can't deny that that it is the sole consideration - it is. If Tiger does not win 19 majors, he will not be considered the best player of all time. But, the one number I've really been focused on and interested in other than that ever since Tiger started dominating is 82. Tiger will no doubt surpass Sam Snead's record 82 PGA tour wins, and he could still do it this year. I can't wait for it, and it's going to be a momentous occasion. Tiger will probably scare 100 tour wins by the time he's done (which is just staggering to think about) and while Jack's record is the ultimate milestone, Tiger's owning of the PGA tour win record, and possibly setting a number that NO ONE will ever get close to, is just of incredible importance and a singular historic achievement.
