Tiger Woods Recent Successes Sends Masters Ticket Prices Sky High

Shannon Reynolds | 05 April, 2018, 03:02

There is something in the air at Augusta.

"But then Phil winning recently, Rory winning recently, Bubba winning recently, Justin (Thomas) playing well, DJ (Johnson) playing well".

Phil Mickelson could become the oldest victor in Masters history at age 47, breaking the age mark set by 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus in 1986.

Augusta National didn't allow its first female members until August 2012, when former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and SC financier Darla Moore were invited to join the exclusive club.

Rose also faces a world-class field where a dozen top players are on strong form, including 14-time major victor Tiger Woods after years of back trouble. I'm looking forward to it.

They seemed to enjoy themselves from the first tee on, when they started in the order of their green jacket ownership: Woods 4, Mickelson 3, Couples 1, Pieters 0.

The grandstands were full, the galleries 10 deep, and when Woods drained a 15-foot eagle putt on the 13th hole, the roar was such you'd have thought he was making a Sunday charge.

Defending champion Sergio Garcia is striking the ball well and demonstrating good form as is Swede Henrik Stenson‚ who was in the mix in Houston last week. The pair have grown closer of late and Mickelson is the first to applaud his countryman's impact on the game.

"I can safely speak for most books that this is going to be the all-time highest-wagered Masters or any golf event in the history of our booking", Jeff Sherman, golf oddsmaker at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, said on ESPN's "Behind the Bets" podcast.

Arnold Palmer was 28 when he captured his first green jacket. An ailing Woods couldn't play, but as an assistant captain he plotted strategy frequently with the other players, and did so intensely with Mickelson.

Spieth's two houses strategy paid off big time in 2015, when he won The Masters in dominant fashion.

What Mourinho Told France Boss About Pogba
All credit to this young player, he has not only bulldozed his way into United's starting line-up but he's now running the show. "There is no problem with Jose Mourinho ". "I'm so happy to have played with him for four years and I wish him all the best".

"I really hope I'm playing my best golf", Woods said. Though it's been eight years since his last green jacket, Mickelson tied for third in 2012 and shared runner-up honors in 2015.

"But my skill set should produce a chance to win if all goes well". "And they'll have the wife and kids, and they'll have maybe the agent, maybe another player even, and just other people around". The lanky left-hander is mercurial, but saves his best for the Masters.

The Texan said it was only after winning the Masters he realised the scale of his achievement and he is as hungry as ever to become a multiple victor of the first major of the year.

Our final selection is a little bit of an outside/dark horse/value selection but, after a return from injury, Cantlay has been contesting in big tournaments on the US Tour circuit and is now lying fifth on the money list for 2018.

"I think they just missed my sharp needle", Woods said.

Dustin Johnson: The overwhelming favorite previous year is motivated after never making it to the first tee when he slipped down some stairs.

The big-hitting 33-year-old has become somewhat becalmed on a single major victory at the 2016 US Open, but when he is on song he can overpower the field. As a matter of fact, Woodland also had to survive a one-hole playoff to get the win.

Rose, the 2013 US Open champion, said he has never watched the video of his dramatic back-nine Sunday duel with Garcia, who captured his first major title by overcoming the British star.

Essentially, with so many top-calibre players in title-winning form this year, the 2018 Masters is nearly too close to call and is sure to be a fiercely-competitive battle.

"Everyone's kind of exclusively focused on Tiger and what he's going to do here and seeing if he can get to No 15", said the former world No. 1.
