Tiger Woods Believes His Game Is Coming Together
Tiger Woods’ poor showing in the Open Championship again raised questions about his current form. A player of his stature will always carry big expectations regardless of form, and will always be expected to turn things around.
Woods is still hoping to gain something from this years PGA Tour season. He has been recovering from back surgery and on top of that, he has been working on a swing change. Despite the difficulties Tiger is still upbeat which is only natural for such a great former champion. Being positive is what helps to make the best champions.
It might be expected that Woods would be spending every spare minute of every day practicing, when in fact he has been playing soccer with his kids. Being the golf superstar that he is, there is still family life to consider.
Time is fast running out for Tiger Woods to salvage what he describes as a “frustrating” PGA Tour season after three missed cuts, a withdrawal and just one top-25 finish in eight starts.
The former world number has plummeted to a mind-boggling 266th in the rankings, making him ineligible for next week’s elite WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio where he has triumphed a record eight times.
Woods attributes his woes to a “perfect storm” of trying to work through the latest swing change of his career while still recovering from back surgery, but he said on Tuesday things were “starting to come together”.
“I didn’t think that it would take this long because I thought I would have my short game earlier,” Woods told reporters at Robert Trent Jones GC in Gainesville, Virginia where he is hosting this week’s Quicken Loans National.
“You can cover up a lot of different things when you’re chipping and putting well. I didn’t have it at the beginning of the year … so that process of scoring has taken a lot longer because of that. But things are starting to come together.”
Woods admitted, though, that not all of his time was spent pondering golf. In fact, the 14-time major winner revealed that he spends a lot of his time playing football with his kids.
