Woods op­ti­mistic of ‘great things’ for 2018

The National - News - - SPORT -

Tiger Woods, be­low, says he hopes to achieve “some­thing big” in the next phase of his play­ing ca­reer as he tar­gets tour­na­ment suc­cess in the new year. A promis­ing re­turn to ac­tion at the Hero World Chal­lenge in the Ba­hamas four weeks ago in­di­cated the 14-time ma­jor win­ner may be­come a ti­tle con­tender again in the au­tumn of his ca­reer. Woods, who turns 42 on Satur­day, had started just three events since Au­gust 2015 be­fore launch­ing his lat­est come­back af­ter spinal fu­sion surgery. Fol­low­ing four back op­er­a­tions in the space of three years, Woods is guarded about how his body will hold up to week-to-week golf on the PGA Tour. But he ap­pears to have grounds for op­ti­mism as he looks ahead to 2018, and back on the past 12 months. “It’s been a year filled with ups and downs, but I am very op­ti­mistic about 2018 and look­ing for­ward to great things on and off the golf course,” he wrote on his per­sonal web­site.
