    14 Majors, 71 PGA victories, and a golfer who dominates his profession!!! There have been countless clutch performances when discussing Tiger Woods as the best ever, but is he better than Muhammad Ali, Michael Jordan, Jerry Rice....I think he is...Tiger Woods (like Jordan) has revolutionized golf....without him golf would be struggly in this recent economy....Tiger's presence exudes something that we've never seen before....DOMINATION...he has dominated golf for just over 10 years and he seem to reinvent himself overtime. The next 10 yrs will be interesting to see what happens...All I know is he's the best clutch performer I've ever seen...Hopefully we ALL get to see some more great performances from MR. WOODS.

    I hardly class a golfer as an "athlete" - "sportsman" possibly.....

    Tiger Woods has done wonders for golf, but he's no Jim Thorpe.

    Golfers are not athletes. Best golfer ever, yes. But if Golf is athletic, then I am superman.

    I think he has no personality either not like some of the real Legends of Sport like George Best, Ali and Shergar. Who was Shergar, the best racehorse ever and it counts as an athlete, watch the little colt win his last race before the IRA kidnapped him.

    I guess if you only think of strength and speed then maybe not the best ever but if you consider mental stamina and physical endurance I bet he is a lot further ahead than Alli. And way more popular and with Alli does a big mouth count as personality.

    At one time I thought it might be Carl Lewis, then Michael Jordan, but now, after seeing Usain Bolt run, I have to go with him as the greatest athlete of all time.

    Its hard to put the label of best athlete on someone because each sport requires different skills.  Wayne Gretzky is the best athlete in my book though.

    Kinda hard for me to name a Best Athlete right off the top.  But the Best Boxer of all time, inch for inch, pound for pound and without the least sliver of a doubt, is Muhammed Ali.
