Former world No.1 Tiger Woods has said that he is looking forward to a break from golf and blamed fatigue as the reason for not competing in this week’s $7 million WGC-HSBC tournament at Mission Hills in China.
After a recent busy schedule which has included an exhibition match against Rory McIlroy, Woods decided he needed a break. By his own standards he hasn’t had the best year in golfing terms. He has won tournaments and has always been in contention but the putter has gone a bit cold on him. At times he has looked lost and strained and at times he looks like he’s thriving on the golf course. I for one think a break will do him good.
He will be playing in his own tournament before putting the clubs away until next year. I honestly believe Tiger will be back to No.1 in the world next year. Don’t hold me to that though!
