Woods Finishes Comfortable Joint Third
On the last day of The Open Championship, current world number two, Tiger Woods, finished the competition in a very comfortable joint third place.
Although the finish helped Woods climb up the rankings, he has stated that he his more interested in winning majors than climbing the rankings.
In search of his fifteenth major win (and his first since 2008), Woods stated at the end of The Open:
‘It’s part of golf. We all go through these phases – some people it lasts entire careers, others are a little bit shorter. Even the greatest players to ever play have all gone through little stretches like this.’
Things could have gone better for Woods and the master did look quite confident until the 6th hole on the last day where he found himself stuck in a rather troublesome bunker; in the end finishing the hole on a double bogey, resulting in an uphill battle to win the championship. Tiger eventually finished the championship on 227, -3 under par.
With that in mind, Woods will now be eyeing up the trophy at at Kiawah Island on August 9-12 on the US PGA Championship, though it is feared that most eyes will be back in Britain – at the Olympics.
