Tiger Woods: I Can Still Succeed



STILL AMBITIOUS: Tiger Woods

GOLFER TIGER Woods has reiterated his belief that he can still be a successful competitor despite a dreadful 2015. The former world No. 1 has fallen to 414 in the rankings but still feels he could do a job for the American Ryder Cup team in Minnesota next year.

Woods, 39, has not won a major since 2008 when he lifted the US Open trophy and his last trophy was a PGA Tour victory over two years ago.

On his personal website, he said: “It was a tough year physically and took a toll on my body. I had to battle through a swing pattern change and get that organised, because it was awful at the beginning of the year.”

He added: “The frustrating part was not being able to build on it throughout the year. To finally have it switch and turn in the last event I played at the Wyndham Championship, and then lo and behold, I can't physically do it anymore.

"I've had two back surgeries since then, so it's been a roller-coaster ride the entire year, from being down to some pretty darn good highs.”

The most-successful golfer in history believes he can regain his competitive status throughout the next decade with his 40th birthday next week.

Woods explained: “The thing I'm looking forward to most about 2016 is getting back out there again. I've missed it, and would like to do it pain-free.

“I haven't done that in what seems like a long time. I've had it in spurts the last few years and have done some pretty good things but I'd like to have sustained health.”
