Tiger Woods hopes to snap his run of lacklustre performances at the US Open this week, nearly a year after his last PGA Tour victory.
Woods has yet to finish in the top 10 of any tournament since the sport returned after being suspended due to coronavirus, while his last victory came at the Zozo Championship last October when he equalled Sam Snead’s record of 82 PGA Tour wins.
« This year I really haven’t putted as well as I wanted to, and the times I did make a few swing mistakes, I missed it in the wrong spots, » said Woods.
« I’ve compounded mistakes here and there that ended up not making me able to make pars or a birdie run, and consequently I haven’t put myself in contention to win events. »
The 44-year-old has enjoyed one of the more enduring careers in golf, despite four back surgeries that had once put his future in the sport in doubt.
Woods, who has 15 major titles – three short of Jack Nicklaus’ all-time record, said last month that he was looking to clean up his game ahead of the U.S. Open – which was pushed back from June to Sept. 17-20 due to the Covid-19 outbreak.
