    No idea as not following him closely. However, he is undoubtedly the greatest sportsman of our times.

    Nah. Arguably. Federer, Bolt, Phelps & Schmacher all have at least as good cases.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    The gap between Woods and the next competitor based on what Woods has achieved at his age is Bradmanesque.

    Same can be said for Bolt though, no sportsman is dominating like him at the moment.

    Also Scumacher's 91 wins in Formula one to the next best of 51 is pretty Bradmanesque.

    Schumacher won more because there were more Grand Prixs in his era. If you compare the number of years a player has been world champion, it is not Bradmanesque.

    Bolt has a fair case mounting for him but I would wait for a bit more time and more races with consistent speeds before I put him in the same category as Woods.

    Not when you look at the facts.
    Bradman 29 centuries in 52 tests, no one is even close to that
    Schumacher 91 wins in 250 races, Fangio 24 wins in 51 races and others such as Senna and Prost have similar winning strike rates to Schumacher, he just has them for longjevity.

    Yeah point taken, although Scumacher does have a suginificantly better win ratio than Senna and Prost. He is only beaten by Ascari and Fangio, who was pretty much always in a championship winning car and that is of course always a big issue when comparing drivers.

    Not going to argue that he was anything like as dominant as Bradman in terms of being just that much better than anyone else but his records still dominate the sport in a somewhat similar way.

    Not really. Federer is only 28 and has won 15 GS titles; Sampras was 31 when he won his 14th. Jack Nicklaus had won 12 majors by the time he was Woods's age too. Tiger's ahead, but not by that much.

    He's got Jack by miles in off-course hole in ones though.

    If Woods is an athlete then so is Phil Taylor and if that is the case then he doesnt compare to 'The Power'

    There's slightly more physical activity involved in golf than darts.
