Harley Actually Makes Some Sense

Avid NetworkedGolfer reader Chris Harley said during the British Open that the reason Tiger wins so many majors is that he manhandles the par 5s like no one else. Though it's not a completely original statement, it's totally on-target, and I thought it right to give Harley props for this observation. I stated that tight, tree-lined venues are what really give Tiger trouble. This is true to a certain extent, but the par 5 theory holds more water.

After the PGA Championship, Tiger's record in majors goes like this:

70 / 16 / 1
71 / 6 / 1
72 / 17 / 10
Total 40 / 12

Thanks to Chris for showing me the light. Comments?
