Tiger talks about his swing struggles
Tiger Woods admitted his frustration with his swing struggles this year in an e-mail newsletter sent on Tuesday but said two late-season victories have boosted his confidence for greater success in 2005.
Woods won in Japan last month and at the World Challenge event he hosts earlier this month against 15 elite rivals. But it came after a PGA season where his only victory came in the World Golf Championships Match Play event.
"It is frustrating when you can do it at home with your buddies but it doesn't carry over to tournaments," Woods wrote. "Obviously there's a lot more pressure, but you just have to keep working at it.
"I've been down this road before with swing changes. I did it with (swing coach) Butch Harmon and now I'm doing it with Hank Haney. The last time it took me two years to get it right. That's just part of the process."
Woods, whose stock answer of being just a little off the mark quickly became laughable as struggles continued, said he never sunk into despair over his re-working of the swing.
