American John Daly has claimed Tiger Woods will now go on and break Jack Nicklaus’ all-time major championships record.
The 43-year-old made history last week after he won the Green Jacket for a fifth time.
Woods contemplated quitting the sport in 2017 due to injury but is now moving closer to Nicklaus’ record of 18 major titles.

The ‘Golden Bear’ has led the way for decades but Woods is now on 15 and raring to go ahead of the rest of the season. When asked if he can compete with Nicklaus, Daly was happy to throw his support behind the fans’ favourite.
He told TMZ: “I not only think, I know he will. It’s just destiny.
I never thought he was gone… I still feel like he’s going to win Nicklaus’ records and I’ve always believed in him.”
