So much for Tiger Woods proving that he could finally come back in the fourth round at a major. Instead of Woods winning his 15th major and moving one step closer to Jack Nicklaus‘ record, he faltered in the fourth round of the British Open (shot +3). Still, Woods will be just fine moving forward.
Despite the fact that Woods hasn’t won a major in a very, very long time–especially for his standards–he will win again. Woods has had a great season and he did finish tied for sixth place in this year’s Open, which is not too bad.
He was in contention going into the final round, but he blew it.
Regardless, he is still easily one of the best golfers in the world and that will be the case for a very long time. He just needs to learn how to put everything together for four straight rounds in a major, which is not always the easiest thing in the world to do. However, Woods has won 14 majors to this point and he certainly has the ability to win a few more.
Woods is not slowing down whatsoever, which is a big reason why he is usually picked to win any and all tournaments that he plays in. Once he finally does capture his 15th major, the golf world is in trouble.
He will go down as one of the most dominating players in the history of golf and sports for that matter. However, there is still a lot left in the tank.
He just needs to get the mental side of his game going in the final round and the rest will be history.
Don’t think that this weekend is a sign of bad things to come for Woods–like him never winning a major again–because that is not going to be the case.
