TIGER WOODS

Golf World (UK) - - US OPEN -

Best US Open fin­ish: 1st, 2000, ’02, ’08 Fin­ish in 2004: T17

What hope of Tiger com­plet­ing his res­ur­rec­tion with ma­jor num­ber 15? His per­for­mances of late have been en­cour­ag­ing and he’s cur­rently fifth in SG: To­tal this year and ninth in scor­ing av­er­age with 69.88. Tiger strug­gled to a T17 at Shinnecock in 2004 when he was No. 1 in the world, but the course will look quite dif­fer­ent now. His driv­ing showed signs of im­prove­ment at the Valspar Cham­pi­onship and Bay Hill, but he’ll cer­tainly need to find more fair­ways than the 52 per cent he’s found so far this year if he’s to con­tend. He’s ob­vi­ously stronger than he was a year ago, but prob­a­bly not strong enough to chal­lenge for the US Open out of the rough.
