Woods: I can beat Nick­laus’ record

Fiji Sun - - Sport - Tiger Woods.

Wash­ing­ton: Tiger Woods says he still be­lieves he will sur­pass the record 18 ma­jor ti­tles won by Jack Nick­laus, even though the for­mer world num­ber one has been side­lined from com­pe­ti­tion for more than a year due to a chronic back in­jury. Now aged 40, Woods is in the twi­light of his golf­ing ca­reer and has been stalled on 14 ma­jor vic­to­ries since his re­mark­able tri­umph at the 2008 US Open but he ex­pressed con­fi­dence about his play­ing fu­ture in a Pub­lic Broad­cast­ing Ser­vice in­ter­view. Ac­cord­ing to an ex­cerpt of an in­ter­view with tele­vi­sion talk show host Char­lie Rose, when asked if he be­lieved he would end up with more than 18 ma­jor ti­tles, Woods replied: “Cor­rect”. When Rose fol­lowed up with: “And if you don’t, you will say?”, Woods re­sponded: “I didn’t get there.” Reuters
