Tiger Woods will continue his preparations for next month’s US Masters by competing in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida next week. The tournament at Bay Hill has happy memories for Tiger, who has six victories at the event, the last coming two years ago. The 14-time major winner is looking to pick up his first title since 2009 and first major since the 2008 US Open. A win at Bay Hill would certainly send Tiger to Augusta in the right frame of mind.
Despite his continued trophy drought, Woods is in some of the best form since his return to the game. Last week’s impressive performance at the Tavistock Cup was his second event in a row where spectators have seen glimpses of the old Tiger and those looking at the golf betting should remember this.
A strong finish to the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral has convinced Woods that he could be returning to some sort of form, and it has come at the right time ahead of the opening major of the year. As with so many tournaments around the world the Masters has been a happy hunting ground for Tiger in the past with four titles to his name.
A fifth Masters’ title this year would be the perfect springboard for Tiger heading into the rest of the year, as he looks to re-establish himself as the world’s best player. Nobody can argue that Tiger isn’t the game’s greatest ever player but the question still remains if he can be the best player at the moment.
