While some people will say Tiger Woods should get a tournament under his belt before the Masters and others will say the Masters is the perfect place to make his first start, I am somewhere in the middle. But the one thing I can be sure about is how happy I am to finally hear it from the man himself. He is done with the intense therapy. He is making amends with his wife and family. He has been seen working at his game like crazy. And now it’s time for him to get back out and do what made him into the most popular sports figure in history. Whether or not he should get a tournament under his belt before he shows up at Augusta will only be answered when the tournament is over. If he wins, people will say I told you so. If he misses the cut, the other people will say I told you so.
Augusta National will protect Tiger Woods like the president. I wouldn’t be surprised if Augusta National or Tiger Woods’ people try to go after a no-fly buffer over the course to prevent helicopters flying overhead. I wouldn’t be surprised if you have to go through three or four checkpoints and screening areas before you are even allowed in the the grounds. The place will be an absolute circus… And I wish I would be there.
So the countdown begins. The countdown until April 8. Will Tiger hold a press conference? Will Tiger hold an interview? Will Tiger win? Who will Tiger be paired with? And on and on and on…. And my prediction you ask… Tiger Woods will win the Masters and it will be a big fat F you to the entire world. And his wife Elin will be right behind the 18th green to hug him.
