LOS ANGELES, California (Doug Ferguson/AP) — Jack Nicklaus isn’t ruling out Tiger Woods breaking his record of 18 major championships provided he rediscovers his game.

Nicklaus said Friday on Golf Channel that Woods will have to do that on his own.

“You go through things, and you have to have a positive thing happen to you to turn it around,” Nicklaus said. “I think Tiger will turn it around. He’s too dedicated, he works too hard at it, he’s got too much talent. He’ll figure it out. And personally, I think he needs to figure it out himself. Because a teacher can’t teach what’s inside your head. You’ve got to be able to put that positive thought into your head yourself.”

“This latest injury is not related to my previous surgery. I am having daily physical therapy and I am feeling better every day.
