Jack Nicklaus thinks Tiger Woods can equal his record

The American Golf icon Jack Nicklaus feels Tiger Woods can win another four or five majors to equal his all-time record haul of 18.

14-times major winner Tiger Woods has struggled from four back surgeries in five years to regain peak form at the age of 42, and will be a huge draw when the US bid for a first Ryder Cup win in Europe since 1993 this weekend.

Woods will have to change the standard in golf with no other player winning more than one major beyond the age of 43, but Nicklaus feels the changes in modern living, nutrition and exercise means that age is only a number as far as his fellow American is concerned.

"With today's equipment, and the way the guys take care of themselves, I think they could play well into their 50s," said Nicklaus on the golf channel.
