SINGAPORE - Tiger Woods believes he's ready to return to top form after shaking off injuries that have undermined his performance for the last two years.

The former world No. 1 says that he has been practicing frequently and getting his playing instincts back.

"The last couple of years, I haven't really played as well as I'd like," Woods said Thursday during a one-day stopover in Singapore. "I made some changes in my swing, and I've obviously been hurt, and that kind of added to it.

"Now I'm healthy, playing again, playing more and playing consistently."

Woods hasn't won a tournament since 2009 and has fallen out of the top 50 for the first time since he was a 20-year-old rookie in 1996. Woods played at the Frys.com Open last month and tied for 30th. He is scheduled to play in the Australian Open on Nov. 10-13.

Woods chalked up his recent struggles to the "cyclical" nature of a golfer's career.

"You look at everyone's career; you have these ebbs and flows," he said. "We don't play well all the time."
