You get it got to the top twenty on the money list that is making a couple million bucks and to put 253 immigrant. I'll giving Stevie is kicking themselves for. Breaking up put tiger is he doing okay without a series. -- My guess as the tigers closer to the 6% in the 8% in the cheap bastard that he has right. I think tiger's world you guys that actually just phases. Caddies street salary for the year it doesn't do the percentage. That a god. -- in trouble with the facts originally did did he talk about that golf digest interview talked about how much tiger paid him all that -- historically it. That's true plus. I think when anybody gets more popular you know you remember what started to recover. Yes yeah I don't know him on our show delegated that. He hated that went. It puts Armas started doing -- -- grip and stuff like you know Joseph Cobb commercials until its value or Eagles they were but I always go competent and Connecticut. Yeah what I want to this letting them -- didn't -- on national public course legitimate. While. You played with Jim and I'll pay is tiger playing better than ever is that just hours and week. We can't can we say that to me because he's -- looks like. The favorite to win against her and win every week right now among overstating it to say he's playing as well as ever. You know I wouldn't you know it got -- I have this big got about whether he's gonna get to eighteen and under direct. Remember way back when in 1997 when tiger came out on the. World stage and started saying I'm playing good but I don't have my a game and you know he's still winning and. You know years ago Davis Love and I -- -- tiger and that's what this is 1996. Feet one in Las Vegas into the defeating Davis in the playoffs and. 877 little Italy police if you -- sense of what this since he beat everybody not gonna have many friends and -- kind of smiled and I don't really care but I have anything that is sort of feature. I got girlfriends. -- it is so. John doesn't think he'll make it to eighteen points does its fourteen point Ortiz right personnel that we know -- -- hijacked so for more active Jack as a -- yeah it was yeah. Yeah no but I think you know he's he's playing so well right now and you put him I think you the last few years when he said this. This troubles -- been with chipping and putting more than that then how he took the ball you know he's got a ball -- the fairway everything done. Now he's playing this kind of controlled state because it make these practice swings like these trying to get a cut it held every time. And I don't I don't think he's as best he's ever been but I I think he's good enough that he could win. When this masters easily. I've -- your liking your -- a little more these days I think you're a little nervous. Yeah they don't know I got like. How old -- how many more years is -- he's 37. Well Jack what have more at 4610 more years or less. I think easily you know but I think he's so motivated to get to this state he could play Italy fifty -- and you know one of the most impressive. Record tiger hasn't nearly one he won bay hill for the eighth time you -- Torrey Pines to the eight I'm. And you know Sam Snead had that record before -- when the Greensboro terminate has but he didn't win. Is eight GE O toll was 52. You know tiger is thirty like cities.

A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history.
