Tiger Woods has been boosted by the news that Jack Nicklaus believes he can still be a record breaker.
Nicklaus won 18 Majors in his remarkable career but the 71-year-old insists that Woods can overhaul that total in his golf clothing.
With 14 Majors to his name, Woods still has some way to go and his last success came back in 2008, but the words of the golf legend have buoyed him.
"It's nice to have Jack say that - that's something that is very humbling," said Woods on the eve of the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Miami, where he will bid to end the longest winless run of his career.
"I respect the heck out of Jack and what he's done and the person he is, and for him to still believe that I can still play top-notch golf it certainly is a confidence-booster, there's no doubt."
