Elway has it, Manning may not.
Tiger has it, Phil may not .
It's when the game is on the line and the pressure the greatest the guys with "It" reach inward for another level of presence and find the zone.
Comparing him to Tiger is stupid, he along with Nicklaus and Jones are on a whole different level to everyone else.
