Tiger Woods Sets Sights On PGA Tour Record
Tiger Woods believes there is no reason he can’t set PGA history by securing a record breaking 83rd tour win as he prepares for the Memorial Tournament this week.
The 44-year-old golfing legend is currently tied with the great Sam Snead on 82 tour wins and is hopeful he can break the long standing record as he gets set to take part in the tournament in Dublin, Ohio.
On the subject of breaking the record Woods stated;
“I would like to say that I’m going to win the event,”
“That’s my intent coming in, that’s my intent going into every event.”
Woods, who’s last win came at the Zozo Championship in Japan last October, added:
“Whether that plays out come Sunday, hopefully that will be the case.
“There’s no reason why I can’t do it again this week.”
On the subject of returning to action following the lengthy enforced break, due to the coronavirus pandemic, Woods added;
“I just felt it was better to stay at home and be safe,”
“I’m used to playing with lots of people around me and that puts not only myself in danger but my friends and family.
“That’s something that I looked at and said, ‘I’m really not quite comfortable with that whole idea, let’s see how it plays out first’.”
On the subject of the PGA Tour betting on the Memorial event, Woods finds himself some way down in the betting.
