Tiger Woods went from narrowly making the cut to a tie for 11th at The Players Championship, showing the rest of the world he can still hang with the best at 42 years old.

Following his round on Sunday, Woods spoke about his solid performance at the Players.

"I really played really good today," Woods said, according to ESPN's Bob Harig. "I hit it so good.

"I had control of it from tee to green. I made some putts. I felt good on basically every facet of the game, and it's weird - not to really mishit a shot today and only shoot 3-under par is just weird ... because I played much better than that."

While Woods' schedule over the next few months remains unconfirmed, he was adamant about his desire to qualify for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone Country Club in August.

That's a course where Woods is comfortable, and has a history of success.

"One of my goals is to get into Akron, one last time, before we leave there," Woods said. "I've won there eight times, and I would like to get there with one more chance. But I've (got) to do some work between now and then."

The WGC-Bridgestone will be relocating to Memphis in 2019. But if Woods continues to regain his dominant form, he might just get his wish of playing in Akron one last time.

Woods would need a Tour victory or a world ranking within the top-50 players by July 30 to qualify for the tourney, per Harig.
