Tiger Woods says he knows he can still win at the highest level after rounding off a hugely encouraging December at the PNC Championship alongside his teenage son Charlie Woods

Team Woods carded a final round of 11-under 61 at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club in Naples, Florida to reach a 19-under par total. 

That included as many as nine birdies and an eagle and although it was much improved from their opening 64 they ended up finishing six strokes behind the champions. 

Bernhard Langer and his son Jason went on a birdie tear, reaching 25-under with a final round of 13-under 59. 

That represented the fifth time Langer won the hit-and-giggle PGA Tour event. 

As for Woods, the 47-year-old also competed at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas earlier in the month.

At the time, it represented his first start since having surgery on his right ankle after hobbling out of the 2023 Masters

In Albany, he indicated he was targeting playing at least once a month in 2024. That hasn't changed. 

"After the Bahamas, we were in the gym on Monday," he told reporters. "So we have been going after it."

Asked if he still believed he could win again, Woods replied: "I think that given the fact that if I'm able to practice and do the things that I know I can do, and prepare, I know that I can still do it.

"I can still hit the golf ball. It's just a matter of prepping and get enough reps in and get enough work in and being right physically, and endurance capability of it.

"I haven't had the leg good enough where I've been able to compete and play a lot of rounds. I've had a lot of procedures over the years, and that's just part of it.

"I know if I can practice, I know I can still do it. I can still hit the golf ball. I can still chip. I can still putt.

"Granted it's also putting it all together for 72 holes. That's the challenging part of it."

Woods will now turn his attention to helping the Tour's policy board ratify the 6 June framework agreement with LIV Golf's financiers. 

Recent reports suggest the policy board has narrowed down its list of potential investors to SSG. 

The Saudi Arabian PIF are still part of the negotiations, according to Woods.
