Stupid press quesions – Nicklaus on Tiger breaking his major record

Time for another edition of “stupid golf press questions.”

Media scribes and blogs all over are going nuts and Tweeting their little fingers to the bone.  “Jack says Tiger will break his major record.  Jack says Tiger will break his major record….”  Rinse. Repeat. Retweet. Yawn.

Jack Nicklaus has said many times over the years that he thinks Tiger Woods will break his major tournament victory record.  Personally I think that major record is seriously in doubt right now based on how Tiger is playing.

But what kind of answer did the media expect yesterday when they asked Jack at the Honda for the trillionth time if he thought Tiger would break his major record?  Of course Jack is going to say yes.  Imagine for a minute if he said no!?!?!  If he said no, he’d be contradicting himself and the media would go completely apesh!t.

So everyone calm down, stop Tweeting and blogging this headline as if it is some sort of huge breaking news.  Set your mouse down and back away from the computer….

    Am sick off hearing about “TW” for now, his game is junk, and he will be the first one to tell you that. But, till he gets back to form, and he will. Lets talk about what is going on at the top right now. We don not have an american player in the top 3. To me that is what we need to be talking about. We need to put some pressure on the american players to step up.
    Just MHO.

    I don’t see how Tiger can return to his previous form, EVER. His life has completely changed and it will never just be all about golf for him again. His run was amazing, but don’t expect it to happen again.

    Where can I donate to assist Japan?
    I’m so sad about what took place in Japan with the earthquake and tsunami and I really need to help all of them by donation.

    Does any person know a website or anything which you could donate to support Japan?
