Tiger Woods aiming to concentrate on his game and avoid getting bogged down by his lowly ranking prior to US PGA Championship
August 12, 2015
The former world No 1 now ranked 278th in the world was more buoyant in regards to his chances of climbing the ranking to reach the top again before the final Major of his 30s.
Tiger will be swinging to win as he takes on his final Major at the US PGA Championship before he reaches the big 4-0, admitting he’s a little unsure how he’s going to perform.
Woods declared during the 2014 Open Championship that anything except for victory was “unacceptable”, and he was still maintaining at St Andrews in July this year that, “absolutely” he could win, and achieve Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 Majors title.
But the now world No 278, who has lost out on making the cut in his last two Majors, was less belligerent yesterday as he stated it is fun to just “compete”.
The length of time that he will be competing in this PGA Tour season will be decided over the course of his first 36 holes at Whistling Straits.
Woods currently stands at No 186 in the FedEx Cup rankings, with only the top 125 being given a route to qualify for the four post-season events.
