Woods hunting for best form

PROGRESS: Woods

TIGER WOODS was delighted at his showing at the Honda Classic on Sunday (March 4) and believes it is only a matter of time before he wins on the PGA Tour.

The 14-time major champion finished two strokes behind Rory McIlroy, whose win made him world number one, and Woods hit an eight-under 62- his best final round score.

It was also his lowest score since when he got a 62 in the third round of the BMW Championship, which was his last PGA Tour victory.

The 36-year-old admitted he was a happy man after his performance:

"I've been close to shooting this score, or scores like this and it was just a matter of time before things all fell in to place.

"I think I just need the time. I switched coaches and I got hurt for most of last year, and I started putting the pieces together.

He continued: "Overall, my finishes have been pretty good since Australia on. And it was just a matter of keep building, keep sticking with it, the process.

"Each tournament I've progressed, I've gotten better. And it's just a matter of time before I put it all together for an entire tournament."

Woods’ next contest is the WGC Cadillac Championship in Doral, Florida, next week and he also added that he had high hopes for the Masters in April:

“I'm thrilled at the fact that each and every week, my game has gotten better. Each tournament it's gotten better, and that's the whole idea heading in to April."
