Golf-Major wins are what really count, says Woods

World number one Tiger Woods, winner of nine of his last ten tournaments, said on Wednesday that despite all his recent wins it is victories in majors that count when a player’s career is recalled.

Woods picked up his 64th PGA Tour win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday and can move above Ben Hogan in the all-time rankings with victory in the WGC-CA Championship starting on Thursday.

But already his mind has turned towards next month’s U.S Masters at Augusta.

“This week is a new week and I’m trying to get this one and make sure my game is right for Augusta. As I’ve always said, you want to peak four times a year and I want everything going positively that way,” said Woods after practice on the Blue Monster course at the Doral Golf resort in Miami.
