Rick Reilly unerstands golf the way I understand sensitivity, which is to say not at all

Just another reason why I don't care for Rick Reilly. 

The title of his latest column says it all: "Is it possible that Tiger may not end up as the great golfer ever? We're about to find out."

Look, I'm fine with someone doubting if Tiger will be the greatest ever.  I firmly believe he'll surpass Jack's 18 professional majors, but until he does it ... Jack is still the one.

What irks me about Reilly is the "we're about to find out" part.  WTF does that mean? We're going to find out at Bay Hill next week? Like if he doesn't win it, he sucks? Or at the Masters? What exactly does "we're about to find out mean?" Golf is a marathon, not a sprint, d-bag.

Rick, you know when we'll find out ... when Tiger is in his mid-50's, and he's either long surpassed Jack's total (likely), or hasn't passed it, at which point it's doubtful to happen.  That's when we'll know for sure, though my guess is we'll probably know in 5 - 7 years as he blows past Jack's mark.
