Despite finishing a disappointing 22nd in the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club this weekend, Tiger Woods says he’s “very satisfied” with his overall performance in 2013. Woods didn’t win a major — yay, we get another year of that narrative dominating every conversation! — but did pick up five victories on the season and is likely to win Player of Year honors when the award is handed out next week.
Woods assessed his play after completing his final round in the chase for the 2013 FedEx Cup (won in the end by Henrik Stenson):
I had a number of chances to win some tournaments. I won five, which is, I think, a pretty good year. I’ve done that a few times over the course of my career. I wish I would have been a little more consistent in some of the events, but overall, to add to the win total for the year, it’s always a good thing (Reuters).
There’s certainly some weeks where I was just off. I always wish I could play a little bit more consistent and have a chance each and every time I tee it up. That’s the intent. It doesn’t always work out that way. But overall … I think it’s been a really good year.
After shooting rounds of 73 and 71 on Thursday and Friday at East Lake, Woods was at least able to finish on a high note, shooting a three-under 67 to put him at even par for the tournament.
