Woods happy with his play

"I drove it great all week, hit my irons pretty good and did not putt well except for the first day," the world number one told reporters after a closing 72 gave him a three-under tally of 285 and a tied 23rd finish.

"I feel satisfaction in the sense I drove it on a string all week and hit my irons pretty good (but) you just can't play and expect to win golf tournaments if you have nine or 10 three-putts for a week.

"No one can win doing that," added Woods. "Driving-wise it's better than it's been in years. Iron play, not quite as sharp as I need to have it, and my putting is way off.  I've got to clean that up before I tee it up again."

At the start of the week Woods had taken the radical step of ditching the putter he had used for 11 years in favour of a new Nike model.
