Woods tipped to win again in 2017

Veteran pro, Notah Begay III, strongly believes that his good friend, Tiger Woods, will get back to winning ways in 2017.

Woods finished 15th out of an 18-man field on his return to action at the Hero World Challenge at the beginning of December and is hoping to get back to his best this year.

"I expect him to have at least one win next year, based upon what I've seen," Begay told the New York Times. "It's just a matter of getting some more competitive rounds."
 
Woods struggled off the tee on his return to action but his short game looked in great shape, something that Begay certainly took notice of.

"For him to go out and make more birdies than anybody else in the field after being on the shelf for 15 months was quite remarkable," Begay added. "He's seeing some definite returns on the time that he's put in with regard to his recovery."

Woods, 41, is expected to be in action next at the Genesis Open from February 16-19 but, depending on how his body feels, he could opt to play sooner than that.
