Tiger trades news conference for Facebook
“Let’s end it at four,” he said. “Plus, I have two little ones to chase around.”
On other topics:
_ He said he has made an albatross twice in his career, but not in competition. One was during a practice round at the Walker Cup in Wales in 1995, the other at Isleworth just two days after watching Mark O'Meara make a 2 on the par-5 seventh hole.
_ His favorite trophy from the majors is the claret jug awarded the British Open champion.
_ Of the next two tournaments, there were more questions about The Players Championship, especially the 70-foot birdie putt he made from the back of the island green on the par-3 17th in the third round of 2001, the only year he won at Sawgrass. Woods said he watched Fred Funk in the group ahead of him four-putt from about the same spot.
“I wasn’t trying to make it,” he said. “I was trying to get it close and not three-putt. I was trying not to lose a shot. I’ll take those accidents.”
As for the best putt he ever made on tour? Woods said it was par putt from just inside 4 feet on the final hole at the 1997 Masters, which he won by 12 shots with a record score of 270 for his first major.
“To set the record, all the history it meant at the time, to have my dad there at the back of the green,” he said. “By far it was the biggest.”
As for his chances of winning?
“I feel like I do, yes,” Woods said. “I feel like if I do the things that we’ve been working on, and get my posture and takeaway dialed in, then yes, I feel like I have a good chance. I’m going to a golf course I like in Charlotte. I’ve won there before. The very next week is a tournament that I’ve also won at. They’re two ball-striking events. You’ve got to hit the ball really well there at those two tournaments to give yourself a chance, and make a few putts at the same time. I’m looking forward to that.”
