Ricky Barnes believes Tiger Woods will return to golf next year “pissed off” and ready to win.

Ricky Barnes believes Tiger Woods will return to golf next year “pissed off” and ready to win.

Speaking to a US reporter at the recently held ADT Skills Challenge, an exhibition event that is only being televised on New Year’s Day, Barnes was asked about the youth revival in 2010 and how a player like Woods is likely to respond to the challenge next year.

“I think everything’s maybe going to start mellowing out in his life on and off the golf course and the guy’s way too good, way too talented and way too determined to go a year and not win, so I’m sure, if anything, this is probably the most pissed off as he’s been after a full season,” he said.

Woods certainly did have a disappointing year, with no wins on the course, and plenty of losses off it, but his game is showing signs of resurgence, and Barnes, like Woods’ caddie Steve Williams, believes the former world No. 1 is close to turning it all around.
