Tiger Woods is confident about the swing changes he has made and is looking to get some form back ahead of the US Open.
The American has plummeted down the world rankings due to a poor run of results and lack of tournament appearances over the past year, dropping from 32 at the end of 2014 to 172.
Injuries have been a massive problem and a back issue forced the 39-year-old out of contention for a wildcard pick for the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles back in September last year.
The 14-time major winner has had to change certain aspects of his swing and there have been signs of improvement, with a tie for 17th at the Masters this season a particular highlight.
With the US Open getting under way on June 18, there is little time to fine-tune his game in time for the second major, but Woods is hopeful of rediscovering his form.
“I feel very good about the changes we’ve made and we’ve just implemented a couple new things but it’s still evolving,” he said. “It’s about peaking at the right time. I want to be able to start playing again, being in contention with a chance to win.”
Woods last won a major back in 2008 at the US Open but the American will need to produce a brilliant performance at the difficult Chambers Bay, the host course for the event.
