Tiger Woods out to impress at The Players Championship

Tiger Woods is aiming to build momentum for the season with a positive showing this week in The Players Championship at Sawgrass.

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

He hasn’t played competitively since Augusta but will be in action for the tournament dubbed ‘the fifth major’.

The American believes this will be the moment where his season starts to gather some momentum.

His world ranking meant he was not eligible for the WGC Cadillac Matchplay Championship last week but he can now look forward to a run of tournaments.

“We made a couple little swing tweaks since then (Augusta) to keep improving, to keep working on it, to keep getting it better, so that part is still a little bit fresh,” Woods said.

“I’m going to start playing a little bit more now since I’m in some of these events now, not like last week. I’m able to start playing a regular schedule now and start getting after it.”

Woods admits there are still things he needs to iron out, but feels his short game is now ready to contend at the top level again.

“Some of the swing changes we’ve made are a little bit fresh, so that’s going to take a little bit more time,” he added.

“But I’m very happy with my short game and where it’s at and the way I’m putting, the way I’m feeling.”
