Nicklaus: Tiger can beat my record
Jack Nicklaus has declared that Tiger Woods can still break his own record of 18 majors.

Nicklaus said Woods can achieve the feat ''if he gets the five inches between his ears squared out.''

''I mean Tiger has a great work ethic, he's a great competitor, the most talented kid on the planet right now,'' Nicklaus told The Associated Press in an interview Friday. ''He's not going to go away.''

''How could you not pick him?'' Nicklaus said. ''I mean he's Tiger Woods; he's the best player in the game. He may not be playing his best today, but he's still Tiger Woods.''

According to the world rankings released Sunday, Woods is far from the best player, as he slipped to No. 49 following the BMW Championship in Cog Hill.

Despite being passed by Geoff Ogilvy, Sergio Garcia and Bill Haas in the list of elite golfers, Woods will breathe a sigh of relief that he still maintains a top-50 spot and is eligible for the Chevron World Challenge, the tournament he hosts in Southern California in December.

The Chevron World Challenge, to be played at Sherwood Country Club, was allowed to offer ranking points two years ago, provided it have only two sponsor exemptions and both were among the top 50 players.

Following the BMW Championship results, Woods – chosen as one of two captain’s picks by Fred Couples - will be joining David Toms, Hunter Mahan, Matt Kuchar, Steve Stricker, Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Nick Watney, Webb Simpson, Jim Furyk and Bubba Warson in the U.S. Team for the Presidents Cup in Australia in November.
