Tiger Still Hunting Nicklaus

Tiger Woods insists he can still overhaul Jack Nicklaus’ 18-major record despite admitting his participation at the Open Championship is still in doubt.

Woods has not hit a single shot for almost seven weeks due to injury after aggravated knee and Achilles injuries at the Players Championship.

And although Woods will not compete at Royal St George’s unless he is 100 per cent, the 14-time major winner believes there is no reason why he should give up his bid to pass Nicklaus.

“Absolutely not,” said Woods. “He won when he was 46, right?

“I’ve still got some time and on top of that we’re about the same pace I believe in years on Tour and majors won. I feel pretty confident of what my future holds and very excited about it. I’m 35, I’m not 65 – I’ve still got some years ahead of me.”
