Tiger Woods has insisted that he is not worried about his form following a disappointing display in the second round of the Dubai Desert Classic.
The world number one's early season struggles continued on Friday as he carded a round of 73 to leave himself eight shots behind Rory McIlroy, who currently leads the tournament.
"It's just part of the process," the 14-time Major winner told reporters on Friday. "I took a long break there and didn't really do anything much.
"Now just need to get the game to come around and - hopefully tomorrow - I need a lot of wind on the weekend and play two great rounds."
Woods started 2014 by missing the cut at last week's Farmers Insurance Open.
