Tiger Woods discusses Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles

With planning to host the Hero World Challenge and getting ready for his role as a playing captain at the Presidents Cup, Tiger Woods says he hasn’t had any time to think about 2020.

Woods is in the Bahamas this week to host the Hero, which benefits his foundation. So preparing for win number 83 next year hasn’t exactly been top of mind, he said.

“I have been so busy trying to figure this stuff out. My mind hasn’t crept to 2020,” he said Monday morning during an interview with Lisa Cornwell on Golf Channel.

The Hero marks Woods’ return to competition – albeit a limited field of 18 of the world’s top players – since he won the Zozo Championship in Japan. That win was No. 82, tying Sam Snead for the most in PGA Tour history, and it came just a few weeks after Woods had a surgical procedure on his left knee.

So is 18 majors still attainable?

“I think it is. Obviously I have to do everything right like I did at Augusta. I have to have all the pieces come together,” said Woods, who turns 44 on Dec. 30. “Who knows? I was 14-1 when either leading outright or tied for the lead going into Sunday. I finally broke that slide and came from behind.

“Who knows? I’ve done it different ways. I’ve won tournaments; I’ve done that different ways. And I have finally won a major in different ways. Who knows what the future holds.”
