"He’s lost that sort of force field of invincibility around him," McDowell said. "The aura is not as strong. He's still Tiger Woods, still the greatest player ever in my opinion. I don't remember the first time I played with him but there was a real ‘wow’ factor. He was playing a different sport than me. But guys get older, stuff happens. ... (Younger players) are not out there believing he is unbeatable because the positive press that happened for 10 years has been replaced with some negativity. And there are so many great young players now, it’s not just one-offs (of a player here or there). There are 10s and 20s of these guys. There's a belief level now that you can be 19, 20, 21 and capable of doing it at the biggest level."
