Tiger Woods unable to explain the ups and downs of his golf career

Tiger Woods has finally lost the title of world’s best paid athlete and also dropped to third spot.

The three times champion openly admitted that the depth in golf is greater now than ever before and that meant that more golfers have a chance to win a major. Winning a major is much difficult as seen from the fact that the last 15 majors had fifteen different winners.

Tiger Woods will tee off on Thursday at 4:26 a.m. EST in the British Open at the Royal Lytham & St. Annes Golf Club where he will get another chance to pick up his 15th major championship. He has not won a major since 2008 U.S Open at Torrey Pines but he says that he is not anxious of winning another title. Tiger Woods fondly remembers the events when he played at Royal Lytham & St. Annes golf course way back in 1996 and in 2001. He scored T21 in 1996 and at that time was considered as a low amateur but he scored T25 when he played for the Open Championship in the year-2001. While playing for the 1996 Open Championships, Tiger Woods realized that he is now ready for the PGA tour.
