Tiger Woods able to take positives away from The Players Championship

Tiger Woods insists he had positives to take out of last week's Players Championship - despite recording his worst ever performance at Sawgrass.

Woods performed with great credit at The Masters last month as he returned from a long lay-off to finish tied-17th.

But the 14-time major winner was well down the field at the weekend, finishing in a tie for 69th place on three over par for the tournament after a closing round of 72.

However, more importantly for him, he was able to complete back to back tournaments for the first time in over 18 months.

"I'm way more comfortable," Woods said.

"We have added a couple little pieces to it. I reverted back a couple times out there over the course of the week, but also I did some really good stuff out there, too, it's going to pay dividends in the end.


"I feel good, physically. We're progressing. It's a matter of putting the pieces together first.

"I mean, look where it was at on the West Coast at the start of the year and to where I'm at now. So let's just keep progressing, keep putting the pieces together, keep chipping away."

The Players Championship was won by Rickie Fowler who beat Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner in a play-off after the three all finished on 12 under par.

Woods is now set to take a short break before what, injury permitting, he hopes will be a busy summer, starting with the Memorial tournament in Ohio next month and then the US Open, the Greenbrier Classic, The Open, and the Quicken Loans National.
