KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. (WCIV)-- At any golf tournament, Tiger Woods is always the star attraction, but even more so when we are talking about a major.
He has 14 to date, but hasn't won since 2008...And his quest to surpass Jack Nicklaus' total of 18... In his mind is still well within reach.
"Well I figure it's going to take a career. It's going to take a long time. Jack didn't finish his until he was 46, so if you go by that time table I've got 10 more years. 40 more majors is a lot, so I've got plenty of time," said Woods Monday.
But in tiger's world, it's been a long time since he won his last major, the 2008 U.S. Open to be exact.
"I played in 3 major Championships and didn't win any of them, so that's the goal. I was there at the U.S. Open after two days and I was right there with a chance at the British open. So, things have progressed…but still. I'm not winning major Championships, and that doesn't feel very good," Woods admitted.
His health is no longer in question. For the first time in a long time he's at 100 percent.
"Being healthy and being able to play and practice properly and implement things Sean wants me to do, this is the way I can hit the golf ball, this is the way I can play. It's nice to be able to do the things I know I can do," said Tiger.
Fourteen majors, 4 PGA championship titles. This is the stage that Tiger Woods wants, to be at his best.
"To me it's a chance to be able to make history… to go out the next day, win a tournament; you're a part of history. So that, to me, is exciting."
Tiger Woods, ready to raise the roof this weekend, just as long as the storm clouds and the rain stays away.
