    If daly won it would be a short lived explosion, but if tiger won again it would be hyped all the way until the next major

    I gotta give it to Daly here.

    He's sure done a terrific job of damaging what could end up being one of golfs coolest biographies. This might help mend it a little.

    Daly might get an initial reaction like "he's not done yet" or "guess he likes the PGA" but if Tiger wins, they will be talking about it for months leading up to the US Open & will he beat Jack again. Whenever Tiger wins, the entire golfing world shakes to its core.

    I think Tiger winning would be bigger. Back to back majors, along with all the chasing 82 talk lately, could crash the internet!

    To me Tiger winning the first 2 majors of the season would be a much bigger story than John Daly. I don't expect him to even make the weekend.

    Having already expressed my opinion on the cart issue, I think Daly would be the more controversial story. But a Tiger win would be huge, and for all the reasons everyone has already expressed.

    Oh man...can you imagine if Daly makes it in the Top 10 on Sunday. The cart coverage might be enough to make me forget about the annoying pictures of the Warning sign.

    If John Daly wins "because of a cart" then I guess that settles it..... using a cart significantly increases your chances of playing better golf.

    As proven by your interview with Budget Golf and the Tiger effect, it is Tiger by a mile. If Tiger wins, this brings back the Jack vs Tiger talk, brings up the grand slam talk, and brings hype until
    the US Open.

    Tiger by a wide margin. Grand Slam talk would start, two majors away from Jack, showing that he can maintain his position at the top of the tour.
    Daly would be treated as a novelty. Old guy who made a mess of his life and career wins one more with help of cart.

    I'm confused how Daly is allowed to use a cart in a PGA major. I understand that he is exempt for life as long as he is "willing and able" to compete. Needing the assistance of a cart to me does not meet the "able" part.

    I think the bigger story is just as much winning with a cart as it is Daly.

    Thats kind of what makes it a story, right? Its a big what if. If it was remotely possible or expected, it wouldn't compare to Woods.
