Tiger Woods will not overhaul the Jack Nicklaus record haul of 18 major golf titles, says Nick Faldo.
Although Woods has 14 major titles to his name already, Faldo - a six-time winner himself - believes the American's off-course problems have taken too much of a toll on the 36-year-old.
Faldo, whose three divorces put him in the headlines for non-golfing reasons, said: 'I've been through only a fraction of what Tiger's been through - and I can tell you how difficult it is. For a man who was bullet-proof, Tiger has some demons on his shoulder now.'
And he calls into question the assumption that it was only a matter of time before Woods overtook Nicklaus.
Faldo added: 'I don't think it will happen. To win five more majors from here is as good as most men's careers. You can never rule Tiger out, but I still question the big picture with him. For people like him and me, it's wonderful to go to the practice ground.
'But it's not the same when your phone in your bag goes, and there's a lawyer on the line or some negative news. It is a serious distraction - and I think this has dented his confidence.
'If you're distracted and hitting bad shots, it changes not only you, but how others perceive you. Tiger used to scare the others. Now they watch him and think: "Why's he doing that?"'
