Town - Tiger Woods is
the favourite to don the green jacket at the 2019 Masters despite
the event being six months out.
The former world number one has
had more surgeries than major wins in the last ten years, but now he’s back
with a bang.
Woods won his first title since
2013 at the PGA Tour’s season finale in September, the TOUR Championship,
instilling belief in fans and experts alike that he still has what it takes to
be a champion. The enormous galleries than followed Woods around East Lake was
also an indication of the impact the 14-time major winner still has on fans.
Woods - who has four Masters
titles and no less than 11 top five finishes - was the favourite among the
bookmakers for a sixth win before the Tour Championship.
Now, his 80th PGA Tour victory
has increased his odds, which are as low as 9/1 by some bookmakers. He is followed by 2015 winner Jordan Spieth
and world number one Dustin Johnson.
The 83rd Masters Tournament tees
of at the prestigious Augusta National on April 11, 2019.
