Masters champion Bubba Watson played alongside Tiger Woods
for the first two days of the U.S. Open. Based on what he saw at The
Olympic Club, Watson believes Woods can at least tie Jack Nicklaus' mark
of 18 major victories.
"He just hasn't won a major, but he's playing pretty good and he's
going to be back," Watson said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning." "He's
definitely going to win again."
Woods, 36, has insisted he has at least a
decade to add the four majors to catch Nicklaus, who won his last major
at age 46 in the 1986 Masters. Watson agrees with Woods' view.
"You know, if he stays healthy, I think for sure," he said, "because
he's still got 10 years to get to where Jack was. So, he's got 10 years
to produce four more victories."
Woods has two PGA Tour wins this season, at the Arnold Palmer
Invitational in March and the Memorial Tournament earlier this month,
but has failed to capitalize on the momentum from both in ensuing
majors. He shot 8 over on the weekend at the U.S. Open to go from a tie
for first to a T-21 finish. At The Masters in April, Woods finished in a
tie for 40th place.
Thanks for sharing!!!! Bubba Watson speaks the truth!!!!
BUBBA YOU ARE A TRUE BAGDAD GUY.
Most players believe Tiger is surely on his way back to winning majors. Like us they are just holding their breath. Even Feinstein said on Morning Drive today said that he'll gather more major victories while he's holding back judgement on whether he'll dominate like before or if he'll topple Jack's record of 18. I got the opinion that deep down, our "friends" at GC believe it is just a matter of time. Once Tiger wins his next major the rest will happen :-))))
ya' betcha :-))))
