Don't write off Woods

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

HOYLAKE, England - United States Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson insists Tiger Woods shouldn't be written off just yet as the former world No.1 looks to get back on track at the British Open.

Woods will be making only his second appearance since back surgery in March when he takes to the course at Royal Liverpool this week.

The last of Woods' 14 Majors came at the 2008 US Open and, while the Hoylake links is to his liking after he lifted the last of his three Claret Jugs there eight years ago, he is still struggling to regain the sort of form which saw him dominate the sport for over a decade.

Woods' assertion that he had arrived in Hoylake to win this week has drawn ridicule from some quarters.
