There is not a lot more that can be said about 2 of the most successful golfers of all time: Tiger Woods and Rory Mcilroy. They are the only golfers to win The Silver Medal and The Gold Medal at The Open Championship and have joined only one other golfer, Jack Nicklaus, in winning three majors by the age of 25. So how do they compare to each other?
At the time of this writing, Mcilroy is 25 years old and is currently ranked first in the world. Woods is 38 and currently ranked tenth. Turning back the clock, Woods was ranked first in June 1997 when he was 21 years old – one tally for Woods. The point here is that you can compare achievements when Woods was the age Mcilroy is now or you can just compare total accomplishments by each golfer. Either way, no one can argue that we are looking at two of the best golfers in the history of the game with Rory Mcilroy on his way to potentially become one of the highest money-makers in terms of sports deals and endorsements as long as stays on the right path.
