Tiger Woods is still gunning for Jack Nicklaus' record.

Despite a slump that has sent him plummeting to No. 241 in the world golf rankings, Woods remains confident that he can win at least four more majors in his career.

Woods comes into the British Open with 14 major titles on his resume, but his last victory in one of golf's biggest events came at the 2008 U.S. Open.

Nicklaus holds the record with 18 major championships.

Woods pointed out he doesn't turn 40 until December. He told reporters on Tuesday, "I know some of you guys think I'm buried and done, but I'm still right here in front of you."

Woods is a three-time British Open winner, capturing two of his titles at the Old Course.
