That's about as wrong as a take can be.
He's top ten all time for wins on the PGA Tour, and only 18 players have bettered his 4 major wins.
It's fair to say that at times in his career he's failed in the clutch, sadly he doesn't always produce his best golf at the end of tournaments. But he always plays to win, no doubt about it in my mind.
