Tiger Woods On The Prowl For A 2010 Win

Tiger Woods, arguably the most talented and accomplished golfer the sport has ever seen, had what he terms a “very painful” year in 2010. Not only has he gone the year without a PGA win, his first since joining the tour, but he has endured a painful divorce while the world watched.

It’s now down to the final tournament of the season and Tiger is on the prowl. He’s hunting his first, and potentially only, win for 2010 in the Chevron World Challenge. The tournament will be held in California at Sherwood Country Club and hosted by the former number one champion himself.

With all of the personal turmoil Woods had faced at the end of last year, he took a five month hiatus from competition to work on himself and, interestingly enough, his swing. He has been working diligently with new swing coach Sean Foley to reconstruct his swing.

So far, the changes and personal drama have made him less of a formidable competitor, yet signs of the Tiger the world once stood in awe of have made appearances every now then. He mentioned in a press conference that he is finally coming to grips with the swing changes he’s made and hopes to put several holes of a hot streak together for 72 holes in the not too distant future.

Woods is currently ranked second in the world behind Lee Westwood. He is just barely ahead of Martin Kaymer.
