Tiger Woods – Masters Tournament Preview

March 22, 2010

Arguably the best golfer of all time is Eldrick Tont Woods, better known as Tiger. His fare share of time had been atop the Official World Golf Rankings by him. Tiger undoubtedly has had success in his profession but has also had his ups and downs, especially at the Masters Tournament.

The first major that Tiger Woods ever won was the 1996 Masters. A record setting tournament would be this Masters in history. Tiger won with a record setting score of 18 under par (-18), by a record margin of 12 strokes, became the youngest Masters winner ever, and was the first African American to win. In all, that year he set a total of 20 Masters records as well as tying 6 others which was fantastic for online betting.

The only time of the modern Grand Slam was Tigers 2001 Masters Tournament win that any golf betting player had held all 4 major championship titles at the same time. The name the “Tiger Slam” was earned by this feat.

He became only the 3rd person to have ever won the Masters Tournament back-to-back with his win the following year (2002). Tiger opted for several swing adjustments that set him back into a “slump” in major tournaments during the 2003 and 2004 seasons.

In the 2005 Masters Tournament this “slump” was broken by him and the tournament was won in a playoff. Tiger never had enough steam to defend his title and lost to Phil Mickelson while on the hunt for his 5th Masters Title in 2006. In the 2007 Masters Tournament Woods made the final group of the last day but was unable to come away with the win. He tied for second behind Zach Johnson.

When he struggled with his putting through the golf betting online tournament Tigers Masters troubles continued in 2008 and in the 2009 Masters where he finished 6 strokes behind Angel Cabrera.

Tiger is scheduled to return to competition for the 2010 Masters after a few months off from competitive golf.
