Thousand Oaks, California, Dec 22: Since the US Open, his first tournament after the death of his father, Woods has not finished worse than second in 11 strokeplay events around the world, eight times winning the title.
''Golf-wise, this year was pretty good,'' he added. ''Overall, I'm very pleased with the progress I've made working with (swing coach) Hank (Haney), and things started solidifying this summer.
''It was nice to put a lot of the pieces together and just go out there and play. To win as many tournaments as I did from mid-summer until now was an awful lot of fun.
''It was fun to go out there today, make a few birdies early and put some heat on the guys behind me.''
Woods is uncertain when he will launch his 2007 campaign.
