Now his problem is his swing. He's been reworking it with Sean Foley for more than 18 months, and it remains a work in progress.
"What's frustrating is I know what to do, and I just don't do it. I get out there and I just don't trust it at all," Woods said. "I can get it on the range, I can get it dialed in there. We'll work on the same things and it feels really good, and I go to the golf course and I just don't quite trust it. It just means I just need to do more reps."
When Woods won at Bay Hill, many saw it as a sign that he had mastered the changes he'd made with Foley. But his shots wound up all over the place, and he complained that bad habits were creeping back into his swing, saying he had "the Hank backswing, with the new downswing."
Woods worked with Hank Haney from 2004-10.
"When you get into tough situations, you revert back to your old motor patterns," Woods said. "That's kind of what happened to me this week."
But he has no doubt he's on the right path.
"You're still always working on little things. I know the big things that we're working on are done, but it's the little things, too, now," Woods said. "The details sometimes can be magnified. Especially on a golf course like this, it doesn't take much. You're a yard off here or there, which happened to be quite often, and next thing you know, I'm 40, 50 feet away."
