Ron Sirak makes a compelling argument that we have reached an age of parity on the PGA Tour.
And the point to remember here, the reason all this parity is not a bad thing even if it does reflect a degree of mediocrity, is to remember that there remains a scramble to determine who’s No. 4. Tiger Woods is, well, Tiger Woods—the best of his generation and a contender as best ever. Mickelson has gone from “will he ever win a major” to “can he match the Tiger Slam” in a mere 25 months. Vijay is Vijay. And Appleby is, at least for now, the best player not named Woods or Mickelson. It’s a product of which even Pete Rozelle would be proud.
