Tiger Woods will be wearing his lucky golf clothing this week as his performance over the next few days could see him either regaining his world number one status or dropping to eighth.
The pro, who is currently ranked third behind Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer, told the Press Association he is "looking forward" to the challenge of the Accenture Match Play at Tucson.
However, if he does not want to slip below the top five, Woods will have to perform better than he did at Torrey Pines and Dubai events, where he finished 44th and 20th respectively.
"I had to work on a few things that we found were not right in Dubai and it feels like we're heading in the right direction," he added.
Woods held the world number one position for 281 weeks before being ousted by Westwood in October last year, who has not won a single major title.
