More majors will come, says Tiger Woods

As he stalks Jack Nicklaus's benchmark 18 majors, the resurgent Tiger Woods insists he feels no anxiety about eclipsing the greatest record in golf.

Woods has been stalled on 14 majors since courageously winning the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines virtually on one leg before undergoing reconstructive knee surgery and then suffering through his infamous sex scandal.

During his four-year drought, the past 15 majors have produced 15 different champion.

However, Woods says he's unconcerned that his perceived absence has opened the door for others and threatens to leave him stranded four shy of Nicklaus's magical mark.

"No, no. I just try and put myself there. I think that if I continue putting myself there enough times, then I'll win major championships," the world No.4 said ahead of the British Open starting on Thursday at Royal Lytham and St Annes.

"First of all, I had to go through that whole process of just getting healthy again. Being banged up and missing major championships because of it in a couple-year stretch there wasn't a whole lot of fun.

"I missed four majors there just because I was injured. I figure if I'm healthy, then I can prepare properly for major championships and I can get myself there."

Even at less than 100 per cent, the American has had his chances during the leanest period of his celebrated career.

He had five top-six finishes in eight majors in 2009-10 and tied fourth at last year's Masters after hitting the lead at the turn at Augusta.

Last month, the 36-year-old looked set to finally end his barren run when he claimed the outright lead at the halfway mark at the US Open.

The former world No.1 - who can return to the top of the rankings on Sunday - knows he's close, but admits it's a lot more difficult to land majors now than 10 or 15 years ago.

"The fields are deeper, there's no doubt," said Woods, who has won a tour-best three times in the US this year.

"And we're having to shoot some pretty low scores in general. You need to have a hot week at the right time. That's what it comes down to.

"I think that there are more guys now who have a chance to win major championships than ever before, and I think that will just continue to be that way.

"What do we have, 15 (different winners) in a row I think it is now. And it just goes to show you the depth of the field.

"And 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."
