Brandel Chamblee went on the golf podcast Sub Par this week and was asked whether he still believed Tiger Woods was the biggest underachiever in golf history. Chamblee proudly said yes, citing a few two-year stretches where Tiger under-performed and suggested that he should have won 10 more majors.

Just as a reminder, Tiger Woods has won 14 Major Championships, the second most of all-time. To suggest he somehow left 10 out there like they were grocery store circulars that he didn't grab out of his mailbox is just silly.

Chamblee originally said this in August 2018. For a counterpoint, let's go to Brandel Chamblee in a September 2018 appearance on CNBC where he calls Tiger, "the surest bet in the history of the game."

"Nobody has ever played golf like Tiger Woods. Nobody's ever handled pressure like Tiger Woods. Nobody's ever won by a wider margin than Tiger Woods."

It's hard to know who is right, but it's probably not the guy who said Tiger Woods would never be a top player again.

Mad-dy shack! Jon Rahm slams club in anger despite having seven-shot lead .
CBS broadcaster and golf legend Nick Faldo was critical of Rahm for the outburst. Nick Faldo sayin “CHILL, DUDE!” after Rahm slammed his club was a tv moment I needed pic.twitter.com/31EIY5dFUk — Chris Vernon (@ChrisVernonShow) July 19, 2020 Rahm was coming off a bogey on the 10th hole, so you can understand why he was unhappy with that stretch of play. Still, an inability to control his emotions when things are going poorly has plagued him in the past.Of course, this is the same Rahm who once ripped into himself over a beautiful shot at the Masters.
