Woods maintains major-less year still great


JERSEY CITY, N.J. – He said it two weeks ago during the PGA Championship and now Tiger Woods is sticking to the script. Even without a major championship title, he deems this a “great” year.

“By my standards,” contended the five-time 2013 PGA Tour winner, “it's a great year.”

In previous years, Woods has maintained that a season can’t be considered great – for him, at least – unless he wins a major.

It appears that isn’t the case any longer.

“This year's been a great year so far,” he continued. “I've won at two of my favorite venues, plus winning two World Golf Championships and a Players in there. It's been pretty good.”

Great, pretty good. Perhaps it’s splitting hairs.

One thing is for sure, though. When asked whether he’d rather win five times without a major or only once at a major, he doesn’t mince words.

“I think the major, yeah.”
