I wouldn't forget about Mickelson. He is the only player talented enough to make it hard for Tiger to break the record. He can be absolutely brilliant, then horrible. But, last year he matched Woods stroke for stroke, and finally beat him head to head in a tournament, I forget which tournament. In the last copuple of years he has 3 majors, and has been ranked 2nd for awhile now. He won't ever be better or even as good as Tiger, but he can make things difficult for him. Hefty lefty will win his share of tournaments.
