Downbeat Woods taking another break

Golf fans could have another long wait before discovering where and when Tiger Woods will play next.

Golf fans will have to wait again before discovering where and when Tiger Woods plays next.
Woods finished joint fourth at The Masters last night on his return from a traumatic lay-off of nearly five months following a sex scandal.
And after Phil Mickelson’s success, Woods said: “I’m going to take a little time off and kind of re-evaluate things.”
The world number one’s first appearance post-Augusta last year was the Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, and the same event is on April 29-May 2.
It is expected he will play either there or at the following week’s Players Championship at the US Tour’s Sawgrass headquarters in Florida.
With total uncertainty about how he would fare and how he would be received after such a break – especially given the circumstances – onlookers will consider fourth at Augusta a superb achievement.
But Woods thinks differently. He said: “I finished fourth. Not what I wanted. I wanted to win this tournament, but as the week wore on I kept hitting the ball worse.
“I only enter events to win and I didn’t get it done. I didn’t hit the ball good enough and I made too many mistakes around the greens.”
Yet Woods still equalled a Masters record. Only two other players in the tournament’s history have also had four eagles in one week.
Two of his came yesterday when he holed his approach to the seventh and then made a 15-footer on the 15th, but three bogeys in the first five bogeys left him too much ground to make up.
