Nick­laus still back­ing Tiger

Townsville Bulletin - - Bizfi Nd -

TIGER Woods has not won in nearly 16 months but golf le­gend Jack Nick­laus said he still be­lieved Woods would break his all­time mark of 18 ma­jor crowns. ‘‘ I still think he will break my record,’’ Nick­laus said be­fore the PGA Honda Clas­sic pro-am. Woods has not won since a sex scan­dal erupted around the 14-time ma­jor cham­pion in late 2009, cost­ing him ma­jor spon­sors and his mar­riage to Elin Norde­gren. ‘‘ He got maybe off the track, but I think he’s re­ally a prin­ci­pled kid,’’ Nick­laus said. ‘‘ Are we all per­fect? No.’’
