Tiger Woods was bullish over his prospects heading into this week’s Australian Masters as he prepared for the defence of his last remaining title.
Fronting the media at Victoria Golf Club on Wednesday, the American was well prepped for the inevitable probing on the upheavals in his personal life over the past 12 months.
Asked whether there was a chance this week to apply a full stop to a chain of events that started days after his win in Melbourne a year ago, Woods smiled, and launched into a speech about the course and the strength of the field.
Woods was far more direct with his responses to inquiries about his form, the state of his game and his prospects of defending the 2009 title he won at Kingston Heath.
“I’ve got a pretty good chance of winning events if I play the way I know I can play,” he said.
