Norman believes Woods will never win another major
The Australian golfer, known as The Shark, appeared on ESPN’s “Pardon The Interruption” on Wednesday to discuss Woods, among other topics. Norman was very critical of Woods when talking about his recent performances.
“I see a guy who is totally lost, he does not have a go-to shot,” Norman said. “When you are a great player and you go through a bad spell, it is usually a minor adjustment you need to get your game back into place, but Tiger needs to make major adjustments.”
Norman also began discussing how Woods will have to become better in order to have success in the upcoming U.S. Open, which began yesterday morning at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Wash. “It is a possible for him to catch lightning in a bottle here and shoot a good round but I can’t see that happening over four rounds.
It is baby steps for him. He should be looking at smaller events to get himself back in position. “To think about making those changes in a very short space of time — after shooting 85 — and coming here to win, I am not too sure about that.
His confidence today is way lower than it was in the 2000s when he has dominating.” Before moving on from Woods, Norman added his final prediction.
“He will win again, he will win other tour events, but a major? I don’t see it.” Woods was on top of the world in the 2000s when he was the favorite to win nearly every major championship.
He has 14 majors to his name, which is best for second all-time, but he hasn’t won a major since 2008. He’s struggled with the divorce of his wife and injuries, leading him to fall out of the top 100 for the first time since 1996.
