AUGUSTA, GA. - While Tiger Woods struggled the past few years, stuck at 14 major championships, Jack Nicklaus has had a reprieve from the persistent questions about his long-standing record of 18 majors being eclipsed.

Now that Woods seems to have his game and his life back in order, Nicklaus is back on the record and thinks Woods is far from finished.

“Obviously the older (Woods) gets and if he doesn’t win, it makes my record move out further,” said Nicklaus Tuesday. “But I’ve said it, and I continue to say it, that I still expect him to break my record. I think he’s just too talented, too driven, and too focused on that.

“Now, a lot of you will say, ‘He can’t do that. He’s 38 years old at this point.’ ”

Actually, Nicklaus was informed, Woods is still only 37.

“He isn’t 38 yet? In his 38th year, then,” continued Nicklaus. “From this point, he’s got to win five majors, which is a pretty good career for most people to start at age 37."
