The Dan Jenkins crystal ball

    I'm a big Dan Jenkins fan. Came across this 2001 interview in Golf Digest. He was asked how many majors Tiger Woods would win. His answer:

    Two years ago I would have said 10 or 12, but now I put the over-and-under at 24. He already has nine [including three U.S. Amateurs], he's only 25, and he's proved there's nobody even remotely in his class.

    "I never thought I'd ever see a greater shotmaker than Hogan or a greater winner than Nicklaus, but I have. It's Tiger. Not that I still wouldn't want Ben to get the drive in the fairway for me for my life. But Tiger makes all those other slugs out there today look like they don't even know how to play. We're talking about a truly remarkable athlete here. Something the game has never seen. Only two things can stop Tiger--injury or a bad marriage."

    Nailed it.

    Injuries and a bad marriage...but I can't quibble with that call.

    Given who and what Tiger is, the only options were "no marriage" or "bad marriage."
