Aussie Geoff Ogilvy has declared the presence of Tiger Woods won’t be a problem for Australia at the upcoming Presidents Cup.
Woods claimed his 15th major title at the Masters in April and took out the Zozo championship in Japan last month earning his 82nd PGA Tour title.
Speaking on Sports Sunday, Ogilvy labelled Woods as “hit and miss” and was critical of the American’s ability to keep up his Masters form from earlier in the year.
“He’s hit and miss,” Ogilvy said.
“The Masters was one of the biggest comeback stories in golf and then he kind of went quiet all year.”
Ogilvy also questioned whether Woods could achieve the same success at team level.
The Aussie pointed out to the Sports Sunday panel that Tiger’s team results don’t match up with his individual success.
“His team results aren’t quite what you would expect,” Ogilvy said
“They don’t match like a Sergio Garcia.”
“He’s in great form but sometimes team things are a different environment.
“Every time Tiger plays someone; they really want to beat him. That’s the tough thing about being at the top.”
But Ogilvy conceded it was only fair Woods picked himself for the upcoming Presidents Cup tournament after his dominant display at the Zozo championship.
“He had to pick himself after that (Zozo championship), Ogilvy said.
“He’s clearly one of the top twelve American golfers in the world.
“He’s very intimidating and an incredible match player historically.”
