GREG NORMAN: I would say with the technology we have today, with the equipment, if you put that in Jack Nicklaus's hands, he'd be a superior golfer than Tiger Woods. You've got to remember the equipment Jack used in those days were balata balls that never went anywhere, you had to smash the hell out of it to get anything out of it, and we played long golf courses then, we played 7,100 yard golf courses. So put the technology that we have nowadays in Nicklaus' hands 30 years ago, he'd eat him for lunch. He'd be hitting the golf ball probably well, he used to hit the golf ball 280, 300 in those days, so just add 25 percent on top of that, and that's what he'd be doing.
Now, Tiger hits the ball a long way, no question, but Tiger never used a balata golf ball, a Mizuno driver, Tiger never used a 1 iron. Those are the things that make a tremendous difference. If you actually go back now and I pull out my driver and hit this golf ball now, you can't hit it. It doesn't go anywhere. You need the technology, the golf ball and the metal and the head and all the technology that goes with it to get the golf ball to do what it does, and that's why I'd say Jack. Apples to apples, equal equipment, everybody would say go the other way, give Tiger a balata golf ball and all of that and let him make the adjustments, I think still Jack would beat him. That's apples to apples.
