Patience The Key For Tiger
The World's number one golfer, Tiger Woods, has insisted that being patience with regards to his form is the key to his return to the heights he reached in his career before the scandals of his infidelity were revealed.
Woods is considered one of the greatest, if not the very greatest, golfer of all time and has dominated the sport since breaking onto the seen by winning the Masters in 1997, going on to win a further 13 majors since then.
Things have not been so rosy for Woods in the last year though, with the extent of Woods' marital infidelity being revealed to the World.
The story that Woods had cheated on his wife on hundreds of occasions broke at the end of last year, and the American has not won a tournament since, in fact you have to go back as far as September last year in order to find his last tournament victory, in the BMW Championship.
Woods is adamant though, that fans will see him back to his best soon and that he is being patient with himself and his performances.
"I've been through stretches when I haven't won and it's a matter of putting the pieces together and being patient, it's not something that happens overnight," he said.
"I'm not one of those players who plays really badly and then really well.
"You start seeing trends and I've started to put things together and I am very excited."
The 14-time major winner readily admits he is putting poorly, something he puts down to speed.
He explained: "It has been off all year. I've three putted quite a few times which I don't do normally so I've had to go back to basics and practise a bit more.
"I haven't worked on it as much as I should have the last couple of years so I've had to go back to that."
Woods is currently 9/2 favourite with bodog to win the WGC Bridgestone Invitational, with bet365 offering 4/1 and bwin 17/4.
