He is not the best there ever was. He still has a way to go to get to Jack's records and will never get close to Bobby Jones records and no one ever will.
Bobby Jones was allowed to play in 21 majors. He won 13 and finished 2nd 5 times. So in the 21 majors he played he finised first or 2nd 18 times. That is a record no one will ever match. He would be so far ahead of Jack or Tiger if he was allowed to play more. And he is the only golfer to win the grand slam in one year.
Jack has 18 wins 19 seconds, 11 thirds and 73 top 10's. He also went 9 consecutive majors without finishing worse than 6th. Tiger has not gone more than 6. Jacks overall competition was better than Tigers as well (that is a concensus of pro golfers, comentators and sports writers).
Tiger has a very impressive record. Nothing to be coughed at or anything. He has 14 wins, 5 seconds and 4 thirds. But that is still a long way from Jacks record of wins or top 3's. Tiger will also never have the sportsmanship or the demeanor of a gentleman that Jack had.
