Video: Tiger admits his Saturday approach at the PGA Championship was wrong

Video: Tiger admits his Saturday approach at the PGA Championship was wrong

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

It's rare for Tiger Woods to admit when he does something wrong on the golf course. It's part of his personality to always look at the positives from a round, even if he doesn't totally believe them, and tell the world after that he's "close" or that he "hit some good putts that didn't go in."

Champions tend to do stuff like that, remembering only the good, so it was a little bit of a change on Sunday at the PGA Championship when Tiger admitted to Peter Kostis that his approach into the third round at Kiawah Island wasn't the right way to go about things.

Tiger was tied for the lead at the PGA, and looked to be in great shape to win his 15th major, but his third round never got going, posting a 2-over 74 to fall out of the lead.

Woods told Kostis, "Yesterday I think I came out with the wrong attitude, I was too relaxed, just trying to enjoy it, and that's now how I play."

It's rare to hear Tiger be critical to the public, but at least he admitted that his approach wasn't right for the final 36 holes and that's one of the reasons he couldn't get anything going at the final major of the year.
