    Two snooker players might suggest some bias towards a sport?

    No Ali, no Bolt etc.

    Mentioning Stephen Hendry alongside Pele must be a first.

  13. I dont believe anyone has been more dominant in a sport than Tiger Woods was from 1997-2009. Golf is easily the most competitive sport in the world.

    Any consideration of the best ever sportsman should take into account the range of skills that sport tests, rather than just a person's level of dominance of that sport.

    So golf, darts, snooker - haway man. And I like snooker.

    I’m surprised the current indoor Bowls champion of Britain isn’t on the OP’s list

  19. I agree, so for that reason, anyone who can dominate a sport as complex and challenging as golf deserves to be near the top of any of these lists. ;)

    So Tiger Woods is undoubtedly one of the greatest sportsmen ever.
     
  20. Competitiveness in that sport should play a major factor to. Not many sports when 50 + players have a genuine chance of winning the event like there is in golf
