Woods sets sights on Grand Slam
Tiger Woods
Woods believes the best golf of his career may be yet to come
Tiger Woods has issued an ominous warning to his rivals by claiming that he is still improving.

And after winning a record sixth Buick Invitational, the world number one reiterated his belief that a Grand Slam of all four majors is within his grasp.

Woods, who won three of the four majors in 2000, said: "I'm hitting shots that I never could hit before, even in 2000. I'm actually hitting the ball better.

"Do I see it (the Grand Slam) as a possibility? I say 'yes'."

His eight-stroke victory at Torrey Pines sealed Woods's 62nd PGA Tour title, and his 16th in 32 starts since 2006.

The San Diego course will be the venue for this year's US Open, and the future looks bleak for the American's rivals.


Sunday's success was Woods's fourth straight win at Torrey Pines and although the course will be set up differently, the world number one has played at the venue since his youth.

"I still have holes in my game that I need to fix and need to improve on. I just think that what I've been working on, I'm headed in the right direction," Woods added.

"Hopefully my good years are still ahead of me.

"The venues this year, I like all of them but I've liked all the venues before in the past.

"It's just a matter of getting your game coming together at the right time and getting all the right breaks. Hopefully you get lucky at the right times."

Stewart Cink partnered Woods for the last two rounds at Torrey Pines and said: "This is the best I've seen him play.

"The Tiger that we saw a year and two years ago, hitting it sort of all over the place, I think that's a thing of the past."
