Tiger Woods earned his third top-5 finish of a year final week during a Quicken Loans National, that held a eye of Golf Channel’s Brandel Chamblee.
“This was some of a best he’s driven a golf ball, during D.C., all year,” Chamblee pronounced on Golf Channel Podcast. “So if he shows adult during Carnoustie and drives it even a small bit better, well, afterwards we demeanour during a PGA Championship and we think, well, there are usually only a few people that can kick him when he’s personification his best golf. I’m assured of that. The universe rankings in no approach right now tell we who he is as a player. He’s distant improved than those universe rankings.”
Woods, now slotted 67th in a universe ranking, has changed adult from 650th after finishing 15th during a Hero World Challenge in December. Chamblee says he’s seen signs of a aged Woods, though he still has a ways to go.
“Tiger has shown an inability to be versatile with his tee shots and an inability to finish off rounds, though we consider everybody expects him to get over that,” Chamblee said. “It’s roughly like he’s putting a pieces of a nonplus behind together again as many mentally as he is physically or technically.”
The Open Championship starts in dual weeks during famed and heartless Carnoustie, deliberate a many formidable on a Open Championship slate. Chamblee expects Woods to contend in majors, and presumably win more, though maybe not during Carnoustie.
“We all design him to do it during some point,” Chamblee said. “I don’t know that it’ll be Carnoustie, since Carnoustie is really intimidating and that’s where he’s seemed to have stumbled a small bit, underneath intimidating circumstances. But it’s going to happen, and it’s going to occur someday this year.”
Chamblee thinks a PGA Championship during Bellerive will be a some-more gentle mark for Woods to potentially acquire his 15th vital win.
“It’s going to be gloomy prohibited there, some-more like it was in D.C., and a conditions will be softer, that we consider will make Tiger Woods a small some-more comfortable,” Chamblee said.
In 11 starts this year, Woods has missed only dual cuts, while branch in 7 top-25 finishes.
