Despite not winning any major championships this year, Tiger Woods had quite the successful PGA Tour season in 2013.
Tiger completed his final round at the Tour Championship at East Lake Country Club on Saturday with a 3-under 67, all but assuring him a second place finish in the FedEx Cup and a $3 million payday.
Woods will finish 2013 as the world #1 – he won 5 tournaments this year, but still remains stuck at 14 majors victories in his career, four behind Jack Nicklaus’ 18.
Tiger spoke to ESPN.com’s Bob Harig about his year.
“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, at the end of the day, to add to the win total for the year, it’s always a good thing.”
More often than not it seemed, Tiger was in the chase at nearly every tournament this year. While he continued to fade at majors, I believe we started to see the Woods of old on several occasions. Will that progress and turn into a major victory in 2014? Time will tell, but Tiger knows he has some things to work on to get back to that point.
“We’re going to take the week off and kind of recoup and recover, get ready for the Presidents Cup, and then basically assess the year and what we need to work on in the off season,” Woods said. “I’ve got a couple of tournaments that I’m playing in that I could try and make some improvements, try and work on some things for next year.”
