Tiger Woods is confident that he will pick up his 15th major title.

Tiger Woods is confident of bouncing back from his Open disappointment at Muirfield last weekend by securing his 15th major title in the near future.

The 37-year-old world number one looked on course to claim his fourth Open crown at the Scottish links course when he started Sunday's final round just two shots off the lead.

However Woods had to settle for a tie for sixth position when he carded a three-over-par 74 to finish five shots behind the winner Phil Mickelson.

I've won 14 and in that spell where I haven't won since Torrey Pines, I've been in there. It's not like I've lost my card and am not playing out here.

It means Woods' five-year wait to add to his major tally will continue for at least a couple of weeks before the final chance of the year comes at the USPGA Championship at Oak Hill in Rochester, New York, from 5th - 11th August. And he is in no doubt that his game is up to the standards required to end his long wait stretching back to the 2008 US Open at Torrey Pines.

He said: "I've won 14 and in that spell where I haven't won since Torrey Pines, I've been in there. It's not like I've lost my card and am not playing out here.

"So I've won some tournaments in that stretch and I've been in probably about half the majors on the back nine on Sunday with a chance to win during that stretch. I just haven't done it yet – and hopefully it will be (different) in a few weeks."

Woods is 4.50 to win the USPGA Championship, Mickelson is 13.00 and Adam Scott is 17.00.
