Tiger Woods, with sterling displays at this years Majors, proved he has plenty of gas left in his competitive tank. mintbet.com are offering 5/1 that the 42-year-old will grab major victory No. 15 next season. Be quick as when its gone its gone.
Next year’s rota has been historically kind to Woods. Along with four green jackets, Woods has won twice at Pebble Beach, which is hosting the U.S. Open (including his record-setting performance at the 2000 U.S. Open), and won the 2002. U.S. Open at Bethpage Black, which will be the site of the PGA Championship. Royal Portush has not hosted the Open Championship since 1951 but should also be well suited to Woods game.The good thing is that Woods has won three Open Championships, and has more than 20 years of experience playing links golf, which he enjoys more than any other kind, as he’s able to shape shots and play more on the ground than in the air.
The fact that just over a year ago Woods wasn’t even fit to hit chip shots makes his accomplishments this season even more spectacular. Only missed short putts prevented him from runner-up finishes at both of the final two majors.
We’ll never see the Tiger Woods of old again, but this version is ready to compete. He showed it repeatedly this year on the biggest stages. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise if he adds to his already legendary major victory total next year.
