Why Torrey Pines was just a step in Tiger's bigger plan

SAN DIEGO -- Expectations are higher, and even Tiger Woods admits it. After a year of feeling his way along, contending several times and winning his 80th PGA Tour title, the prospect was inevitable. But that doesn't mean Woods was going to get ahead of himself and impatiently look to add to his victory total early in 2019. That, likely, is why he skipped the Sentry Tournament of Champions earlier this month. And it is also why he was mostly all smiles Sunday after finishing the Farmers Insurance Open, despite falling out of contention Friday and finishing 11 strokes back of winner Justin Rose. "If you look at where I was Thursday and look at where I am now, Sunday, I got a little bit better,'' Woods said after a final-round 67 saw him tie for 20th. "I drove the ball better, hit my irons a little bit cleaner. Again, I hit some good putts, some didn't go in, some did. Just continue with the track. I have a couple more months of prep before April [and the Masters], so things are heading in the right direction.''
