Tiger Woods still eyeing wins records

July 30, 2014

While Tiger Woods is on the bubble to make the Ryder Cup team, he still has lofty records in his sights.

He is gunning for Sam Snead's all-time tournament record (he is three back) and Jack Nicklaus' majors record (he is four back).

"I think there are probably two goals that are pushing me right now which one is to get the all-time (tournament) wins record," Woods said. "I'm only three back of Sam (Snead) on that one and obviously the major record, you know, being four back of Jack. So, those two are pretty synonymous with the greats of the game of golf, to be number two and on both lists is not too bad. And that means I've had a pretty good career."

The more short-term goal is making the Ryder Cup team, and a strong performance this weekend at the South Course at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio, would help immensely. Woods, playing in his third tournament since returning from surgery, has owned the course over his career.

"If he's playing well and he's healthy, I'll pick him," Tom Watson said at Royal Liverpool, where Woods finished 69th in his second tournament back from injury. "But then the caveat is if he doesn't get into the FedEx Cup (playoffs), what to do then? And that's the question I can't answer right now."

But Woods had a disappointing weekend at the British Open, which he was well aware of.

"Well, I didn't hit the ball very well; that's just plain and simple," he said. "I made so many mistakes. When I first came back at Congressional, I made a ton of mistakes there as well. My thought process was off. I missed the ball, like wrong sides. I was too passive at certain points and too aggressive at others."
