There is nothing better in sports than an old former star riffing on an aging former superstar. Colin Montgomerie is a European Tour legend (No. 4 all time in wins), and he recently talked Tiger Woods (a lot of Tiger Woods) with Michael Bamberger of Golf.com. The topics were bountiful, and all of them were interesting. It is one thing for those of us in the media to wonder what might have been (and what was) with Woods. It is an entirely other thing for somebody from inside the ropes (really inside the ropes) to let it fly. You should go read the entire piece, but the part that stuck out most to me is that Montgomerie said Woods would have 20 or more majors if golf equipment had not changed.
