Tiger Woods feeling 'very comfortable' when in contention

Tiger Woods has responded to Jack Nicklaus saying he “needs to learn to win again” by explaining he's felt “really comfortable” while in contention recently.

The 14-time major champion has not tasted victory since 2013, with his last major win coming in 2008, but he has been knocking at the door since his comeback, posting a runner-up finish at the Valspar Championship.


"I think this understanding of what it takes to finish it off and get a W. I’ve been on runs where it came pretty easy, getting Ws, and other stretches where it was very difficult," he said.

"This is a little different because I’m coming back off not really playing for a while, and I remember the feelings (of) when I was at Valspar. I had a chance to win there, get second and it really felt comfortable. The last few times I had a chance I was up there on the board and I felt very comfortable.”

Woods plays today at the Memorial Tournament, hosted by Nicklaus.
