Tiger Woods says out of shape guys can win on the PGA Tour

Tiger Woods may have sparked a second wave of interest in golf fitness, taking up where Gary Player left off, but there are still plenty of fitness throwbacks on the PGA Tour.

In an interview with CNN, Woods was asked how girlfriend Lindsey Vonn's skiing training made him a better athlete. From the sound of things, it seems Woods is already pretty comfortable with his training routine.

"It's two totally different training regimens," Woods said. "You look at some of the guys on Tour, and they got huge guts and they can't breathe when they walk up to the tee boxes, but they can still win golf tournaments.

"In her sport, if she's not feeling close to 100 percent, you're not going to win."

Woods has been high on players like Dustin Johnson and Gary Woodland, natural athletes he has said will be the future of the game.

That's the future, however. Meanwhile, a sharp decrease in the PGA Tour's collective BMI in still in the offing.
