Woods resolves swing issues

by Michelle Fortune , 01 May 2012

Tiger Woods has worked hard on the ball-striking problems which affected him during The Masters and he believes he has resolved the issue as he prepares for the Wells Fargo Championship in Quail Hollow.

Woods had been expected to challenge for the Green Jacket following his victory in the Arnold Palmer Invitational but the former world number struggled with his swing throughout the tournament and finished with a five-over total of 293.

He has spent the last few weeks working on the problem and he is confident he will not have the same issue when he returns to action in North Carolina.

"At the Masters, I was kind of struggling with my ball-striking a little bit," Woods told fans during a question and answer video session on his website.

"Sean and I fixed it. It had to do with my posture. My setup wasn't quite right, as well as my takeaway so we worked on that. I just needed to do hundreds of (repetitions). I'm getting dialled in."

Having looked a shadow of his former self for so long, Woods appeared to have regained his form when winning at Bay Hill only for him to take a step back at Augusta.

He has worked hard on his game in the past fortnight and the 14-times major champion is feeling in optimistic mood ahead of the Wells Fargo Championship.

"I feel like I do, yes," Woods replied when asked if he was in with a chance of winning this week.

"I feel like if I can do the things that we've been working on, and get my posture and my takeaway dialled in, then yes, I have a good chance.

"I'm going to a golf course I like in Charlotte. I've won there before. The very next week is a tournament that I've also won at (The Players at Sawgrass)."
