Tiger Woods: Legend Has Everthing He Needs to Win PGA Championship
Tiger Woods may have not looked like a golfer capable of winning a major at the Bridgestone Invitational, but he has everything he needs to take home his first victory in almost two years this upcoming weekend. The PGA Championship is the last major of the year meaning its Tiger last shot until 2012 to get closer to breaking Jack Nicklaus’ record. Speaking of Nicklaus, some wisdom the greatest golfer ever shed on the game gives Tiger hope to come out on top next Sunday.
“Confidence is the most important single factor in this game.” Tiger has the confidence needed to take home the PGA Championship trophy. After going one over on the weekend, Woods said he was “absolutely encouraged” by his performance.
There really is no reason for Tiger not to be confident over the performance. It was the first time he had played competitively in months. The tournament was nothing more than a warm up for the final major.
He had his moments and struggles, but in the end, he actually ended up finishing two strokes ahead of Phil Mickelson. According to the Washington Post, Tiger was quoted saying:
“It’s nice for me to get out there in this competitive atmosphere no matter how I was playing just to figure out how to score, because I haven’t been forced to score. At home, playing money games with my buddies is just not the same. Being out here and being forced to have to post a score, hit shots...that’s a different deal.”
Woods played pretty well for just trying how “to figure out how to score.” He probably took a ton of money from his friends while rehabbing and he could win big next weekend as well.
