LYTHAM ST. ANNES, England – Tiger Woods believes it’s more difficult to win a major now than it was 10 years ago, but he’s not worried about it and says he doesn’t feel pressure to collect major No. 15 soon.
“The fields are deeper, there’s no doubt,” Woods said Tuesday at the British Open. “I think that there are more guys now have a chance to win major championships than ever before, and I think that will just continue to be that way.
“The cut is no longer 13, 14 shots. It's sometimes under 10 shots between guys making the cut and the leader. So that goes to show you the depth of the field that everything is getting a little bit closer.”
But Woods contends that he’s not worried about when the next major victory will come, not feeling pressure and isn’t concerned with anything other than to perfect the most recent swing changes.
“I think that if I continue putting myself there enough times then I'll win major championships,” Woods said. “I figure if I'm healthy, then I can prepare properly for major championships and I can get myself there.”
