Woods won't dominate golf again, says Faldo

LONDON - Tiger Woods' chances of surpassing Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 major titles were ruined by his extra-marital affairs, according to British golfing great Nick Faldo.

Woods, 37, appeared to be closing in on Nicklaus' mark after winning 14 majors but he is yet to prevail at a major championship since revelations about his private life emerged nearly three years ago.

The American took a four-month break from the sport after admitting to the affairs, but he has failed to recapture his early-career form since making his return.

Asked about Woods' chances of catching up with Nicklaus, Faldo said: "I think it's slim. I would lean towards no."
