Tiger Woods is entering the Masters as the No. 1 golfer in the world, the first time he’s entered a major as the world No. t since the PGA in 2010. He’s been on a bumpy ride, but he seems to be back on top. However, he hasn’t been under this much pressure to win in a long time, so you can bet everyone will be tuned in.
Woods has been the favorite to win the Masters pretty much every year since his incredible 12-stroke victory in 1997 at age 21. He now has five green jackets in his closet and is once again the clear-cut favorite to win the tournament that he has owned for the past 15 years. Heck, Jack Nicklaus once said Tiger will probably win 10 green jackets, so he may just be getting started. Of course, Tiger hasn’t won the Masters since 2005, so his dominance at the event is dwindling, but that could change on Sunday.
Woods is the favorite at 3-1 odds and the next closest is Phil Mickelson at 10-1, so to say Tiger is going to be the center of attention is an understatement. He tees off at 10:45 a.m. Eastern Time with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy, so he likely won’t be pushed tremendously on day one. Of course, that could change on day two and beyond, but it’s a long tournament.
