Former No1 snaps at "annoying" media

Tiger Woods vented his frustrations at the media ahead of this week's Greenbrier Classic, saying he was exasperated by their constant questioning during his two year drought between November 2009 and December 2011.

"I have to deal with it in every single press conference," he said. "I have to answer it in post-round interviews—whether it's with you guys or in a live shot [on TV]. You do that for a couple of years, sometimes you guys can be a little annoying."

With a semblance of return to form, Woods now leads the 2012 PGA Tour in wins having won at Bay Hill, Memorial and most recently on Sunday at the AT&T National at Congressional.

Beating Bo Van Pelt by two strokes, meant the former world No1 moves into clear second spot with only Sam Snead's 82 wins remaining ahead.

"To do it at 36, I feel like I have a lot of years ahead of me," Woods said.

"I've had a number of good years in my career so far, and I feel like I've got a lot more ahead of me. It feels great to get to 74 wins and obviously pass Jack. It's something I'm very proud of."

The next target, as it has been for so long, is the major record and victory at the upcoming Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes would go some way to proving that Woods was really back to his best.

Can he win it?

"It's going to be totally different shot-making and prep," Woods replied.

"I'm going to have to start practising some different shots and getting used to hitting the ball a little bit lower, a little bit more flighted.

"It's a totally different game playing links golf. But I still have to have the ability to get the ball up in the air. That's something that we're going to work on."
