Woods can win a record 83rd time on the PGA Tour
Tiger Woods says there is "no reason" why he can't make PGA Tour history this week with a win at his first race event since February.
The 44-year-old hunts in the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio for an 83rd PGA Tour victory that would overshadow Sam Snead's number 82, 1965.
"I'd like to say I'm going to win the event," said Woods, who has won the tournament a record five times.
"That is my intention to enter, that is my intention to enter every event."
Woods, who matched Snead & # 39; s record by winning the Zozo Championship in Japan last October, added, "Whether that comes out Sunday, hopefully that will be the case.
"There's no reason I can't do it this week. "
Master Champion Woods missed tournaments prior to coronavirus elimination by golf to treat back problems.
During his last Tour February event – the Genesis Invitational – he finished last among the players to make the cut.
The 15-time big winner played in a charity event during the official coronavirus stop, but has since opted to compete in PGA Tour events behind closed doors.
"I just felt it was better to be at home and safe," said the American . "I am used to playing with a lot of people around me and it not only endangers myself, but also my friends and family.
" That's something I looked at and said: & # 39; I'm really not quite comfortable with that whole idea, let's see how it turns out first. "
If Woods attends Muirfield Village Golf Club from Thursday, he will do so without the usual crowd of cameras and spectators following his movements at events.
He admits that he is intrigued by fanless events and went to see how golf can feel in the near future.
" In order not to let anyone scream, nobody to scream, no energy, the social detachment, no handshakes, there is nothing to feed our energy, "said Woods.
" It's just a silent and different world. "
