US Masters Profiles: Tiger Woods

4th Apr 2013 | Golf

Woods is hunting a 15th major.

Age: 37

World Ranking: 1

Major Wins: 14

Augusta Record: Remarkable. A four-time champion with a further eight top-10 finishes on the course he loves the most. His most staggering performance remains his 12-shot victory for his first Green Jacket back in 1997. Cynics will say that he hasn’t won here since 2005. True, but even with his problems, he was never worse than T6 until a T40 last time.

Form: He’s back. The signs have been positive for a while but Woods hasn’t started a campaign like this for some time. He has notched up victories already in 2013 at the Farmers Insurance Open, the WGC Cadillac Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Nobody can touch the game’s biggest star in the Fed-Ex standings.

Verdict: Absolutely the man to beat. One suspects though, at the risk of sounding cliched, that his biggest opponent will be himself this week. The pressure will remain huge on Tiger until he ends that five-year wait for a 15th major. He didn’t even achieve a top-10 finish in 2012’s big four so in that sense the jury remains out. That said, it would be shocking if he wasn’t thereabouts come Sunday.

No one bettered his pair of 67s last weekend at the Heritage. Overpriced whilst his resurgence continues.
