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. While fellow golfer Phil Mickelson is ranked World No.2.Tiger Woods was unable explain why his golf career is on a roller coaster ride this season that had won him three events more than any player this year. 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.

While playing his third practice round of the week at Lytham – early Tuesday morning Woods observed that the course would play differently this week than it had in 1996 and 2001 due to heavy rainfall this summer in England. He further commented that the golf course is slower that means that Woods will have  a different game plan than he once applied in the 2006 for the British Open at Hoylake, where he biffed  the course into submission without ever hitting his driver. Tiger Woods won the tournament by five strokes that year. Lee Westwood also spoke at a press conference saying that he would rather prefer to win a major at Royal Lytham & St. Annes, England than winning a major while playing for Ryder Cup.
