Tiger Woods seems to be picking himself up in his athletic abilities although he still has a long way to go.
On Monday, CBS Sports pointed out how the golfer played at the 2015 Greenbrier Classic where he had his first bogey-free round since 2013. He also managed to not let the golf club swing out of his hands unlike what happened at the U.S. Open this year.
After shooting a bogey-free 67 on Sunday, Woods said, "I played really well today. I hit the ball the best I've hit in a long, long time, made absolutely nothing. I had full control over all the clubs."
Despite his improvement, Woods knows that there is still time to pull through to get back to where he used to be.
"People looking for the one quick fix and the very next day go out and play golf, it doesn't work that way," he said. "It takes time. It takes time to build it. I'm very pleased with what I've been able to do, and consequently I'm in this position now."
Woods, who just got out of a relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, looked back on the Memorial tournament and how it's able to help him down the road.
"I felt like we made a big, giant step at Memorial, even though I shot those numbers, but the pattern was set now, just had to refine it," the golfer said. "I'm excited about what I was able to do at Memorial, even though I shot those high numbers, but the shift in the baseline like I did, consequently I'm here now in this position, so very excited about that."
