Tiger Woods Seems Optimistic About Future Prospects

Publish date:

Tiger Woods has been in a pretty bad slump over the last few years. His chase to beat Jack Nicklaus' record, something everyone used to follow very closely, isn't even really discussed anymore.

Woods remains optimistic, though. Recently he told USA TODAY that he's heading into the right direction now:

"I'm headed in the right direction," Woods said at a press conference for the AT&T, a tournament that benefits his foundation.

"...I've been through this before. I remember I had a pretty good year in 2000. And I didn't win for a couple months. And the word 'slump' came about....

I think that's the nature of the new media business. You've got to be able to stand out somehow to get eyes going to your site or to your medium, and I think that's one of the reasons why there's the criticism that there is."'

Woods' next match is in the Memorial Tournament.
