Tiger Woods believes he is starting to get back to his best after enjoying three good rounds at the Quicken Loans National last week.
The former world number one shot rounds of 68, 66 and 68 at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in Virginia with only a disappointing round of 74 ending his hopes of challenging for the title.
Woods now believes his game is moving in the right direction as he looks ahead to the US PGA Championship later this month.
Troy Merritt was the surprise winner of the Quicken Loans National, claiming his maiden PGA Tour title in some style. However, it was Woods who made most of the headlines as the countdown to the USPGA Championship, which gets underway on August 13th at Whistling Straits, gathers pace.
"I started off well and really hit the ball well and, looking at the whole week in general, felt like I made some big strides," he said.
"My short game is starting to come back to where it used to be. Everything is kind of trending in the correct direction now.
"This is much better, much, much, much better to have a round like Sunday. I hit the ball really well and I didn't really miss a shot on the front nine. It was a very solid round. It was a mixed bag as far as results but the fact I had total control of the golf ball was nice."
