Bjorn predicts Tiger dominance for years to come

Thomas Bjorn, the Danish player who beat Tiger Woods in a final-round showdown in Dubai, thinks the American star will win 30 major titles.

''You might beat him on any given day or over 72 holes, but over a whole season or a whole career you can't beat him,'' Bjorn said today as he prepared for the Volvo PGA.

''He's the sort of guy who comes along once in 100 years in any sport. ... I think he can win 30 majors. I think he's going to beat Jack Nicklaus' record.''

Woods has won the last four majors for a total of six. Nicklaus won a record 18 professional majors.

Bjorn, who topped Woods in the Dubai Desert Classic in March, tied for second in the British Open last year, and was third in the PGA Championship.

''I know how a player feels when you are right in there in a major,'' Bjorn said. ''The look in his eyes is ... it's just different. He puts on a completely different face when he plays a major than when he plays any other tournament.

''He's just so focused. He just goes out there with one purpose and he goes straight for it. He hits every golf shot like his life is depending on it.''

''He's worked hard for it, but you can only work so hard and become so good. Your talent is what takes you beyond all things that have been achieved before and his talent is unbelievable.

''They said Sergio Garcia would challenge him, but I don't think he's going to go past Tiger Woods. I don't think Sergio is as good as Tiger. I don't think anybody thinks Sergio is as good as Tiger.''
