Tiger Woods might have been out of the field given his constant injuries but his peers are still confident about him. One of them is golf champ Phil Mickelson who remarked that he won’t be surprised to the former # 1 contending at the upcoming Masters.
This year, Tiger has just played 47 holes and came up with his worst of scores ever – 82 round in Phoenix Open.
However, post multiple social low-rounds in Medallist Club (Florida) & a couple of practice rounds in Augusta National 2015, the 4-time Masters champ has confirmed his availability in the first Major in 2015.
On the contrary, Phil had placed himself in a good state for his 1st victory thus year prior to his unfortunate round 3 in Shell Houston Open.
“Every individual must look for what enables them to put their best & Woods hasn’t ever been the one to swing prior to a Major- but when it comes to me, I have always preferred to play in the very week before”, remarked Phil.
“Now that Woods has declared to play the Master championship, it is not at all surprising for me. I am quite confident that he would play well although he hasn’t played golf for 2 months. He carries such grand knowledge about Augusta.”
“I do not feel that his issues with chipping this year would be of much significance this time as he would be chipping uphill & putting downhill. One could putt right from off green on several holes & that takes block out of Tiger’s hands”, Mickelson stressed while speaking about Woods great possibilities.
On the other hand, Paul Casey must be in a great mood of late as he is finally getting to play masters this year post a long absence of 4 years.
