Nicklaus still believes Tiger can beat record

Despite going majorless since 2008 and having an indifferent start to the year, Tiger Woods can still break that one elusive record in golf - Jack Nicklaus' 18 major championships, and that's according to no greater authority than the Golden Bear himself.

"I still think he'll break my record," Nicklaus said. "Tiger's talent, at 37 ... it's not that old. I won four after that. They were spread out. It wasn't that difficult. I don't think for Tiger to get four or five more -- or six or seven -- is that big a stretch."

Despite his relatively dismal shoppings in the 14 major championships since, Woods is still likely to go into The Masters as one of the top two favorites and bookmakers still fancy his chances at picking up a fifth green jacket.

"I still think he can do it," Nicklaus said of Woods' hunt. "But that said, he has still got to do it. He hasn't won one in five years. He had better get with it if he's going to."

As for the man himself, he likes his game - if not necessarily his results - so far this year.

"It's not that far off," Woods told reporters at the Honda Classic "I feel like I'm probably just not quite driving it as well. My iron game is pretty good and my short game is way better than it was at Torrey.

I feel very comfortable with my putting, so I need to obviously get it in play a little bit more and attack from there, because everything else is pretty good."
