What will Tiger Woods' latest comeback to the PGA Tour yield? According to Johnny Miller, we should expect plenty of hardware.
Woods announced Wednesday that he plans to return to competition next month at the Safeway Open. Miller serves as tournament host for the event, which will mark the opening of the new 2016-17 season. He believes that Silverado Country Club is an ideal venue for Woods to hit his first competitive shot since August 2015, and a layout where the 14-time major champ can leave his driver in the bag.
"His iron game has been great. There's nothing wrong with his iron game," Miller said on "Morning Drive." "If his driver, forget maybe trying to kill the ball off the tee. If he can just put it in play and let his irons do the talking, obviously he's a great putter and a phenomenal competitor."
Woods' most recent win came at the 2013 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and it put him three behind Sam Snead's PGA Tour record of 82 career wins. Miller, who won on Tour at age 46, believes that Woods has the firepower to sail past Snead's mark if healthy, and could potentially add to his wide array of records.
"If he's going to come back and play some kind of a schedule, you cannot count Tiger Woods out. Talent always comes to the surface if you give it a chance," Miller said. "They always say a great fighter, a boxer, always has at least one more great fight in him, and I think he has more than one great fight. I really pick him to win six or eight tournaments in the second career, at least. That's my feeling."
