There are several golf fans out there who think that Tiger Woods is the greatest of all-time. Lindsey Vonn is one of them.
After Tiger coasted to a victory at the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio, Vonn took to Twitter to declare that her boyfriend, who just earned his 79th PGA tour title, was the greatest golfer to ever step into the tee box.
Of course, if we’re counting titles here then we have to note that Tiger is still a few PGA tour wins shy of the all-time mark. Sam Snead still holds that record with 82.
There’s also another number that Woods hasn’t quite reached yet: 18.
Tiger Woods has won 14 Major Championships in his career and there’s a chance that he could win number 15 next week. But that’s still a few wins shy of Jack Nicklaus who won 18 major championship titles. According to the Golf Channel, no one should declare Tiger Woods the “Greatest Of All Time” until he surpasses Nicklaus.
That may take a few years but Tiger has already won a few “greatest” titles. The Golf Channel has dubbed Tiger the most commanding, the most dominant, and the most consistent. But the greatest of all time? Nope, not yet.
So proud!!!! #79 #GOAT

Do you agree with Lindsey Vonn? Is Tiger Woods the greatest to ever play the game of golf? Will he surpass Jack Nicklaus for most Major Championship wins?
