Tiger Woods admits he is looking forward to returning to action at the Wells Fargo Championship this week.

The former world number one completed his worst performance at the Masters last month, failing to break par in each of the four rounds.

"My set-up wasn't quite right as well as my takeaway. I just needed to do hundreds of reps. I'm getting dialed in."

However, coach Sean Foley has worked hard with Woods in the interim and the player is confident that issues with his swing have been ironed out.

"At the Masters, I was kind of struggling with my ball-striking a little bit," Woods said. "Sean and I fixed it. It had to do with posture.

"My set-up wasn't quite right as well as my takeaway. I just needed to do hundreds of reps. I'm getting dialed in."

Woods added that if he is able to carry the good work from the range to the course he should be able to contend at Quail Hollow and The Players' Championship later in the month.

"I'm going to a golf course I like in Charlotte," he said. "I've won there before. I feel like if I do the things that we have been working on, and get my posture and takeaway dialed in, then yes, I feel like I have a good chance.

"You have got to hit the ball really well there at those two tournaments to give yourself a chance and make a few putts at the same time. I'm looking forward to that."
