Singapore - Staggering golf giant Tiger Woods on Thursday said he was looking forward to the final events of the year and 2012 after getting well again, as he made a stopover in Singapore en route to Australia.
The winner of 14 majors fell out of the top 50 in the world rankings following injuries and personal issues, is set to play at this month's Australian Open in Sydney and the Presidents Cup in Melbourne.
'Obviously, I have been injured, and now having the opportunity to get out there and play, and get my feel back is something,' the ChannelnewsAsia website quoted Woods as saying.
'I have been playing a ton of golf at home,' he said during a tightly-controlled visit in the city-state.
'So I have been out there and just playing, getting my playing instincts back, something I hadn't done all summer,' the US player said.
Woods dismissed his slump since 2009 as just an up and down in an athlete's career.
'If you look at everyone's career, you have these ebb and flows,' Woods said according to the online edition of Straits Times daily.
'Now I'm healthy again, playing again, playing more, and playing consistently,' he said.
'So I'm looking forward to the end of this year and going into next year,' the report quoted him as saying.
