Tiger Woods believes next year's host venues give him a great chance to end his five-year major championship drought.

The 37-year-old was the last player to win a major at both Hoylake and Valhalla - the courses set to host the Open and USPGA respectively in 2014 - while he has finished third and second in the last two US Opens held at Pinehurst No. 2.

Speaking after finishing tied for third at the Turkish Airlines Open, Woods said: "Next year is a really good one.

"Pinehurst, I've had a third and a second, and hopefully it will keep improving like it has.

"I'm looking forward to the four venues - I like them and I've obviously played well on them."

Although he has been unable to add to his tally of 14 Majors in 2013, Woods feels his game is in much better shape having collected five victories this year, including two World Golf Championships.

"A couple of years ago there were a lot of guys saying I could never win again," he added.

"I've got eight wins since then, so it's been good and I'm very happy with the progress I've made.

"I've won on some venues that were very tough this year, and obviously winning the Presidents Cup with Freddie (Couples, the US captain) was another special moment."
