- Tiger Woods has said his game hasn't been as sharp since winning his 15th Major at the 2019 Masters.
- Can Tiger contend at 2019's final major? And which grand slam event best suits his game at this point in his career?
Meeting with the assembled media in the Open Championship interview room on Tuesday, Tiger Woods admitted that winning the Masters this year took a lot out of him and his game isn’t nearly as sharp as he’d like it to be right now.
“I still need to shape the golf ball a little bit better than I am right now,” he said, acknowledging that he’ll need to improve upon flighting the ball for expected winds throughout this week at Royal Portrush.
At least he knows he can do it.
During last year’s Open Championship at Carnoustie, Woods shared the lead on the back-nine, eventually finishing in a share of sixth place, his first top-10 at a major championship in a half-decade.
As he prepares to embark on the year’s final major at Royal Portrush, his last major start as a 43-year-old, let’s examine where Tiger has the best – and worst – chances of claiming his 16th major title and beyond.
