Tiger happy with game ahead of Pebble Beach

Getting ready for his first PGA Tour event of the year, and Tiger Woods is on, if not exactly a hot-streak, a solid run of results that even a poor final round in Abu Dhabi couldn't diminish.

Third at the Australian Open, a solid Presidents Cup and winner of the Chevron World Challenge, and his tie for third at the event in the Middle East gives him a run of three top-3s in a row from stroke play events.

"Even though I lost, I was very pleased with the [fact] that was my bad day of ballstriking, and it wasn't that bad," Woods said of a final-round 72 that left him 2 strokes back.

With several of his tee shots running through fairways, putting form off of several greens Woods is in a postive frame of mind coming into his first AT&T Pebbble Beach National Pro-Am in 10 years.

"If I can have that as my bad ballstriking day, then we're looking pretty good," Woods said. "I'm excited about that. The previous three days were very good."

During the press conference Tuesday, Woods also turned to the issue of belly and long putters, which have seen a rise in notoriety in the last few years.

"I've never been a fan of it," Woods said of the putters which have become more popular lately. Keegan Bradley was the first player to capture a major championship at last year's PGA using an anchored putter. "

I believe it's the art of controlling the body and club and swinging the pendulum motion. I believe that's how it should be played. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to that."
