Dubai Desert Classic Leaderboard, Alvaro Quiros (FSY) from Spain has won the Dubai Desert Classic with a final round Sunday that included a wild hole-in-one triple bogey, Tiger Woods (FSY) to try to win his first tournament in 15 months s is collapsed.
(AFP) – Another week without a win for Tiger Woods, but the fallen star of world golf insists he is still on track and redouble efforts to bring in teachers.
The 35-year U.S. failed to find the vital spark, he was a consultant for the last day of the Dubai Desert Classic, and a tournament he has won a good performance in 2006 and 2008.
Starting the day just a stroke behind the leader, and with the realistic hope of a first tournament victory in 15 months, two bogeys and three soon took the wind from his sails.
Woods recovered the way back with birdies at the rank of the sixth and 11th, but with gusts of wind shook remodeled his swing, bogeys the 12th and 14th ended his challenge.
It came with a three over 75 and a tie for 20th place.
At least that’s an improvement on his tie for 44th place at Torrey Pines, California two weeks ago when he opened his season and Woods remained stubbornly optimistic.
“There were some bright spots this week. Also some glaring examples of what I have to work, which is good. I’ll go to work next week,” he said.
“It’s like anything, all my old feels are out the window when the wind blows, so the thing when you make a change.
“I went through this with Butch (Harmon) and I went through this with Hank (Haney).
“It’s great when the wind does not blow, but when I’m hitting shots and the wind blows, the change of feelings and motives of this new swing, they are exposed.”
Woods has begun to rethink radically its movement under the watchful eye of the Year Canadian coach Sean Foley last amid personal turmoil that beset his marriage and his career.
He has also completed extensive knee surgery he underwent in 2008 following his dramatic U.S. Open victory at Torrey Pines, which kept him sidelined for eight months.
Woods briefly show glimpses of his old form in Dubai, especially with his eagle finish the first round and his bogey-free 66 on Friday.
But when he needed to find another train on the weekend to release a ranking in boots, the game just was not there.
Yet he said that things are improving.
“It was a step in the right direction, no doubt,” he said.
“I improved a lot considering where I was at Torrey Pines a few weeks ago. This is a step in the right direction.
“He is progressing. It is progressing.”
Woods returns to U.S. to continue its preparations for the Masters in early April and should play in the upcoming WCG Matchplay in Arizona at the end of this month.
