Woods not fazed by form

Tiger Woods is confident he is set to turn his form around and start winning tournaments this year (Woods 13/2 Masters outright).

Woods made a disappointing start to the year after missing the second cut at the Farmers Insurance Open before only managing a share of 41st at the Dubai Desert Classic.

After a four-week break Woods also struggled in the opening two rounds at the ongoing Honda Classic, carding a one-over-par 71 followed by a one-under 69.

However the world number one showed a huge improvement on Saturday, shooting up the leaderboard with a five-under-par 65 in the third round.

And speaking after the round, Woods said it was his best of the year so far and is now much more confident about getting back on track to win trophies (Woods 15/8 to win exactly one major in 2014).

“Played well today, felt a lot better,” said Woods. “Yesterday I didn’t hit the ball very well. Today I struck the ball well and made some putts (but) I missed my share as well. I just had a good feel (on the greens).”

The 14-time major champion added: “It’s going to turn around. We are all going to have hot spells and we’re going to have cold spells, especially the longer we stay out here. I’ve had situations where it just seems like no matter what you do, you play, nothing really goes your way.”
