Woods eyes majors after successful return

A four-under final round of 68 from Tiger Woods at the Hero World Challenge has him bullish about the future; including a shot at the majors.

Woods finished the week with rounds of 69, 68, 75 and 68 placing him tied for ninth position in the star-studded 18-man field he hosts to benefit the Tiger Woods Foundation.

“Overall I’m very pleased. I showed some good signs; I hit some really good shots out there. A bright future." Woods said.

“I knew I was going to be able to play all four rounds, that wasn’t going to be an issue,”

“The issue was how my scoring was going to be, how was my feel? How am I going to get used to the adrenaline in my system, because it’s the first time in a while.

“That took a little bit of time,”

“I was still scratchy with my irons; I drove it pretty good, made some good putts.

“We’re going to sit down, try to figure out the best way to build my schedule for the majors,” Woods said. “Play enough, but don’t play too much.”

Rickie Fowler won the event by four strokes.
