Five Reasons Why Tiger Woods Will Win The Masters

Five Reasons Why Tiger Woods Will Win The Masters
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Tiger Woods is just amazing when he is on the top of his game and is unbeatable when he’s on the prowl. Despite the last few years after the cheating scandal broke, his personal and professional life seemed like it was a downward spiral. This being said in 2013, it seems like a night and day difference and he seems like the old Tiger which could instill fear into the hearts of the field of any tournament he participates in. Including majors where he seems to bring the intimidation levels to even higher levels.

Regardless, Woods can be seen as the most dominant athlete in any sport. Golf can also be seen as one of the toughest sports as it’s a battle of a person versus self. This is a good thing when shots are falling in for birdies and eagles, but just as fast it can go bad when bogey, double bogey and worse happens. The only big drawback to Tiger’s game has always been him not being able to trust his driver. If he could trust the driver, he would be downright scary as he would have the long game as well as some of the best shot shaping golf has ever seen. All and all, with all the great momentum Tiger has amassed this year, the 2013 Masters is all but his tournament to lose.
