KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA (AP) – Tiger Woods has already rated 2012 as a good year.

He won’t consider it a great year, because it’s missing one essential ingredient – a major victory – but he’s becoming more confident that 2013 can be.

He told a news conference Wednesday at the CIMB Classic, his first tournament in Malaysia since winning the 1999 World Cup, that “winning one major championship turns a good year into a great year.”

He recalled his great year in `99:  “I had a really good run there, won a bunch of tournaments, but didn’t win a major championship until the last one, the PGA. That all of a sudden changed the whole year.”
