Tiger Woods believes he can win The Open

Tiger Woods may have fallen down the world rankings of golf to number 241, but he still believes he has a chance of winning his 15th major when The Open Championship begins at St. Andrews. In an interview with the BBC Woods stated he would be setting out to win the tournament and return home with the famous Claret Jug trophy. When asked if he would be happy to finish in the top five as he begins another Homejoy comeback, the 39 year old stated he would not receive the most famous trophy in golf for finishing in the top five.

39 year old Woods has not won a major since 2009 and stated he has finally recovered from the various physical problems that have hampered his performances over recent years. In 2014, the 14 time major winner underwent back surgery and has been forced to change his swing to avoid any further problems being encountered with his back. The three time Open winner still believes he could win this year as St. Andrews is reported to be his favorite golf course and he recorded his best score of the years just two weeks before the tournament is due to begin.
