Woods convinced of success

Tiger Woods is convinced that he will soon return to the winner’s enclosure as he prepares for another tussle with Rory McIlroy at this week’s WGC Cadillac Championship (Woods 15/2 – Cadillac Championship Outright).

The 36-year-old has steadily improved over the past few months and has begun to show glimpses of the form that has brought him 14 majors to date in a stellar career.

And it all clicked into place on Sunday during his final round at the Honda Classic, as the former world number one carded a superb 62 to post a 10-under par clubhouse score before waiting to see how the Northern Irishman responded.

McIlroy duly rose to the challenge, keeping his two-shot lead over Woods over the closing holes, and playing the par-five 18th with skill to take the title and claim top spot in the world rankings.

Despite failing to win the event, Woods remains upbeat about his return to form and believes that he will be lifting a few more trophies in the not too distant future.

“Each tournament I’ve progressed, I’ve gotten better,” he said. “And it’s just a matter of time before I put it all together for an entire tournament.”

Woods and McIlroy will square off in Doral this week before the year’s first major and the American star is clearly looking to peak going into the Augusta show-piece (Woods 11/2 jt-fav Masters Outright).

“I’m thrilled at the fact that each and every week, my game has gotten better and that’s the whole idea heading in to April,” he added.
