World number one means absolutely nothing.

Majors are what counts.

Do you think Donald would be happy if he spent the next decade at number one but didn't win a major?
Report rustyboy June 15, 2012 9:09 PM BST
With the $$$ being there that long would bring? Probably. You'd have to extend the question and ask whether he'd swap all that money for a major. Maybe he would. I wouldn't. Majors are just another tournament.

i am from the camp that anyone can have a good week and win a major, but not everyone can be good enough to be world number 1. a lot less people have been world number 1 than have won majors

Todd Hamilton agrees with you :D

Tiger said a decade ago '' Majors are how we keep score ''.

Does Woosnam look back on being number one for a few months?

Or his US masters win?

Majors are surely what its all about.

I think that's a fair point, but the game has changed a lot now. Each tournament involves more money than majors ever used to (probably combined) - Paul Lawrie won something like £250,000 back in 1999. That's a 3rd-4th place on a tour event these days... There's obvious prestige in the majors though.

Donald is actually that straight. Its a bit of a myth. What he is, is superb from 100 yards in. He has the best short game

rusty the huge increases in prize money are down to one man.

The problem with Luke is the lack of muscle on a tough plan I'm paying to my cost.....

As someone said earlier he is not straight,infact he sprays it left and right.

However his short game is the best in the world.

Majors is how we judge greatness, he was got a a big fat zero, he will retire a very rich man but in the grand scheme of things he wont be remembered as a great golfer if he wins no majors.

These are the tournaments where you have to prove if you have what it takes.

Best analogy I can think of is poker players who play predominantly cash and those who are mainly tournament players.

The best in both fields are very content but would also of course gladly take success in the other form on the (fewer) occasions they compete in them.
