I'm heading back to the top, warns resurgent Tiger ahead of Masters

Hats off: Woods is ready to start winning again
Tiger Woods has sent out some of the
strongest signals yet that he is ready to end a six-year drought without
picking up a Masters Green Jacket.
The American former world No 1 has steadily built on the resurgent form he showed in January.
And as he went into Saturday night's
third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in a share of
the lead with Korean Charlie Wi, he left no one in doubt that he felt he
was back where be belonged.
After shooting a seven-under-par 65
to move to the top of the leaderboard, he pronounced: 'I am comfortable
up there and I feel like I am playing well again. My bad days now are
not as bad as they used to be. I am a lot tighter.
'I had lost a little bit of my length
but now I am able to get the ball out over 300 yards again and
consequently I am able to play par-fives better.'
