Nick Faldo says Woods has lost self-belief to win majors

Edinburgh: Former golfer Nick Faldo has cast doubt on Woods` chances of winning another major this week and has said that he lacks self-belief, which was important for winning big titles.

According to The Scotsman, Faldo expressed that the golfer hits the wrong shot at the wrong time, while Woods prepares to tee off in Thursday`s opening round in the British Open.

Earlier, Woods was ushered off by security for starting his practice earlier than he was permitted after he jumped the gun with his practice round at Muirfield, the report said.

The report added that the American golfer is renowned for being up at the crack of dawn to play his practice rounds in the world`s oldest major and he teed off at the tenth hole 20 minutes before the official time.
