Curtis Strange, ESPN: The last three years I read and hear about how he's lost intimidation factor, and he did probably because the players had gained on him, because the players had gotten so much better, and they have a little bit, and he'll never get it back. And I always disagreed because he's still the better player of everybody. He's still better than Rory, he's still better than Westwood when he was playing. He was still not the best player because he was going through some changes and personal issues and just wasn't playing as well, but if he ever started playing decent, I think they would know, and I really think it's like that now. ... You know he's not going to give you much. He might give you something because he might drive it in trouble, but he's going to make a lot of birdies and a lot of putts and handle the pressure. And I really think that the intimidation factor is not completely back, but it's growing in that direction.
