Tiger vs a more youthful Tiger


CHASKA, Minn. – So if Tiger Woods could separate himself, who would win? The Tiger of 2000-01 who won four consecutive major championships? Or the Tiger of today, winner of 22 of his last 40 PGA Tour events?

Woods answered that question Tuesday.

“I would win now,” he said. “I know how to manage my game a hell of a lot better than I did back then. Just understanding how to get the ball around. I have so many more golf shots now to get me around the golf course. And that's just experience. That's nine more years of learning how to play and how to manage my game around a golf course. And I'll probably say the same thing in nine more years, because I have that much more understanding mentally. Physically, I don't know if I'll be able to hit the ball quite as far, but understanding how to play, that's just years of experience.”
