Tiger Woods Australian Open, Tiger Woods hit seven birdies during his second round to claim the lead at the Australian Open in Sydney.
The 35-year-old American is 9-under par overall, one shot clear of Australian player Peter O’Malley, but he says it could have been better.
“Even though I shot five under today it felt like it could easily have been eight or nine deep,” Woods said.
“It feels good that I am there playing properly. It’s not like I am slashing it all over the place. It could have been pretty low these first two days.”
Woods has not won a tournament since the 2009 Australian Masters. Since then he has dropped from the top of the world rankings to number 58.
His season has been plagued by Achilles and knee injuries, but Woods says he is starting to feel more at ease with his new swing.
“If you look on the video, it is way different. Starting from the grip and the posture, to the takeaway, the clubface, arm angles. It is so different,” he said.
Reporters asked Woods if he believes he can win the four major titles he needs to equal Jack Nicklaus’ record of 14.
“If it happens, it happens, but that is not my goal, said Woods.
“My goal is to win golf tournaments and play to the satisfaction of myself and my family. That, to me, is what it is all about.”
Adam Scott – partnered by Woods’ former caddie Steve Williams – is five shots behind Woods with two rounds remaining.
