Another 14-time major winner is also in the news, as Tiger Woods has spoken publicly for the first time since pulling out of the PGA Tour's Safeway Open nine days ago. That announcement delayed his highly anticipated comeback.

Now 40-years-old, Eldrick is entering the twilight of his golfing career, and has been stalled on 14 major victories since his remarkable triumph at the 2008 U.S. Open. But even though the former World Number One has been sidelined for more than a year due to a chronic back injury, he remains as confident as ever, that he can get back in the mix.

Woods said, "I took the time off with the Ryder Cup, and trying to come back after that, I just didn't quite have the same feel. And I thought I would pick it up right away, and I was ready to compete, and I was ready to go."

"It's tough knowing that I see a shot and I say 'I can kind of feel it' but it's not quite there yet. If it's not quite there yet, hey, you've waited just over a year to get back to this point, let's be smart about it, and not rush it. That's from my brain saying that to me, but my heart is saying 'Tiger, let's play'!"
