Jenkins' best

Saturday, August 15, 2009

CHASKA, Minn. – Longtime author and golf writer Dan Jenkins – covering his 201st major – gives his top 5 players of all-time:

“I’ll have (Ben) Hogan No. 1,” he said. “I never saw him play, but how do you leave out (Bobby) Jones? Hogan, Jones, Byron Nelson, Sam Snead, Tiger (Woods), (Jack) Nicklaus. That would be five or six. ... Right now, until Tiger beats Jack, he’s going to stay in the middle. But if he ever passes Jack, he’ll move up. Nobody is ever going to top Hogan for me. Greatest shotmaker who ever lived.”
