Tiger looks to build on US win

Los Angeles - Tiger Woods, who enjoyed his first taste of a golf triumph in more than two years by helping the United States keep the Presidents Cup, hopes to maintain that momentum and end a two-year win drought.

Woods tweeted his pleasure on Tuesday after flying home from Australia, where he produced the decisive point in a 19-15 victory for US captain Fred Couples' squad over the Internationals at Melbourne.

"Fun two weeks in Oz, really pleased with how my game held up in the wind and under pressure. Freddy did an awesome job once again," Woods wrote on his Twitter micro blogging website.

"Looking forward to continuing that mo at the Chevron World Challenge next week."

Woods will play next week in his foundation's annual charity event in suburban Los Angeles with hopes of winning his first tournament in two years, since the eruption of his infamous sex scandal two years ago this week.

Woods, a 14-time major champion chasing the record 18 majors won by Jack Nicklaus, struggled most of this year with a knee injury suffered at the Masters.

"Golf-wise it has gotten better," Woods told CNBC in an interview.

"I went through a period there where I was struggling for a little bit. Things are now starting to progress."

Former world number one Woods was listed 51st in this week's world rankings.
