Hungry Tiger not ready to be pensioned off just yet

HOPEFUL: Tiger Woods

AN OPTIMISTIC Tiger Woods is adamant that he’s not “done” and can still break Jack Nicklaus’s 18 majors record. The most recent of Woods’ 14 majors was the US Open in 2008. This week he is at St Andrews for the Open Championship but the American has not won a trophy since 2006.

Through his strong grit and determination, Woods is giving his critics food for thought. According to the Guardian, when asked whether surpassing Nicklaus’s record was too big a challenge, the former world no.1 exclaimed “Not at all. I’m still young.”

Woods seemed even more confident when asked if he thought about quitting golf, when he underwent nerve surgery in early 2014, consequently causing him to have a significant dip in form.

“I don’t have an AAP (Association of American Retired People) card yet, I’m a long way from that”, the four-time Masters winner said.

Of the Open's famous St Andrew's course he enthused: “It’s the home of golf. To me it’s brilliant, how you can play it in so many different ways.”
