London, Feb.26 : Golfer Stewart Cink has called on golf chiefs to have Tiger Woods dismantled - to see if he is a machine!
Woods crushed Stewart Cink 8 and 7 in the final of the Accenture World Match Play Championship in Tucson to rattle off his sixth straight win.
According to The Sun, Woods has now won eight of the nine tournaments that he has played in since last year's Open - and was runner-up in the other one!
"I think maybe we ought to slice him open to see what's inside there. It may be nuts and bolts. He just has such a strong sense of belief in himself. He's never going to mess up. He's always in control. He's a lot better now than he has ever been at that. He's really learned how to stay within himself. He regulates himself and his heartbeat," said Cink.
"He's simply the best that has ever played. I would agree with Tiger that he's playing better now than he was when he won all four Majors in succession in 2000-2001," he added.
Woods' win in Arizona gave him his 63rd US Tour title, hoisting him above Arnold Palmer to fourth on the all-time list. He now needs just 20 more to knock Sam Snead off top spot.
He is also halfway towards beating Byron Nelson's incredible record of 11 straight wins, set in 1945 when the competition was nowhere near as strong as it is now.
His latest streak has earned him a cool 3.35 million pounds and he will be an odds-on favourite to keep it going when he tees off in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill on March 13.
He won that event four times in a row from 2000.
