Dennis Smith Jersey Last August he parted company with swing coach Sean Foley. He tweaked his swing action undernew mentor Chris Como."I'm going through this and unfortunately sometimes I have to get a little bit worse before I can make a giant stride better," the 39-year-old said. "Has it been fun going through this? No, it hasn't, because obviously I amnot scoring."I'm just not making that one key up-and-down or (avoiding) a bad shot. Instead of hitting it on a spot where I can play, it's a spot where I can't play.Rounds which should be 74s, which I Bradley Chubb Jersey used to turn into 70s, are turning into 74s if not a little bit higher.That's the unfortunate thing about scoring, that you need to have those opportunities and I have had chances to make those runs and just haven't done it.MORE: "Don't forget I came off back surgery, changed Tim Patrick Jersey my golf swing and did a polar 180 recovering from back surgery.Those two together is the perfect storm. And I have had to fight through the both of those at the same time."Now ranked 266th, Woods mi sed cuts at the U.S. Open and the British Open with a tiefor 32nd finish at The Greenbrier Cla sic in between. That's anexample of his inconsistent form.Woods is a two-time winner of his event, Albert Okwuegbunam Jersey most recently triumphing in 2012. He will be on the course beginning Thursday in Virginia.MORE: The 14-time major winner reserved praise for Jordan Spieth,who fell short of extending his Grand Slam bid at the British Open.Spieth is not playing this week."I didn't realize (Spieth)was that close to either winning the tournament or getting into the playoff," Woods said."For him to obviously play St.Andrews for the very first time and to see it under different winds like he did and to be able to play it that well was impre sive.Not to mention he had just won the previous week and really didn't have a whole lot of time to rest and prepare on a golf course where it really does help to know how to play it."You have to make a game plan and be able to make Bryce Callahan Jersey a change on the fly, and from what I saw the first couple of days when I was there, he was able to do that.He played really well.He played a couple of groups ahead of me and he had to deal with the wind delay like we did, and he still was able to put together an unbelievable chance to win the tournament."
