The Masters would be a good place for Woods to start. More than just the Masters, he hasn’t won any major since the U.S. Open in 2008. He is stuck on 14 majors and has been for five years, putting him further behind the pace he once set to break Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 professional majors.

Nicklaus has long believed that Woods will break his record. But even the Golden Bear says Tiger better get moving.

“The older he gets and if he doesn’t win, it makes my record move out further,” Nicklaus said. “But I’ve said it _ and I continue to say it _ that I still expect him to break my record. I think he’s just too talented, too driven and too focused on that.

“He’s played very, very well this spring,” Nicklaus added. “I think if he figures it out here, it will be a great boost for him. If he doesn’t figure it out here, after the spring he’s had, I think it will be lot tougher for him.”
