CARNOUSTIE – Tiger Woods is taking inspiration from Greg Norman and Tom Watson and believes he’s got time to add to his tally of Claret Jug victories.
Without a major win since the US Open 10 years ago and a tour title since 2013, Woods is just happy to be back at The Open for the first time since 2015.
Four back surgeries since 2014 have left him in a more reflective place about a storied career that - whatever lies ahead - has redefined his sport.
And the three-time Champion Golfer, now 42, insists there is no rush to add to his tally of 14 major titles while admitting this event will likely be his best chance in the years ahead.
Greg Norman, then aged 53, famously finished in a tie for third at Muirfield in 2008 while Tom Watson was second one year later at Turnberry - edged out by Stewart Cink in a play-off just a few weeks before turning 60.
