Tiger Woods ready to win Masters 2015 in Augusta

 

Former number one Tiger Woods deems he is in great shape to win a 15th major as he announced himself prepared and ready for the Masters which kicks off Thursday.

Woods has been working hard to get back on his game since recording a career-worst score of 82 at the Phoenix Open, before injury compelled him to pull out from the Farmers Insurance Open.

The 39-year-old golf superstar said he felt like he had to get his game into a spot where he could compete to win a golf tournament.

"And it's finally there.", he added.

Woods has not earned a major since the 2008 US Open and the last of his 4 Masters wins was 10 years ago. He only confirmed on Friday that he would contend at Augusta.

He made an impression in his practice round on Monday, displaying no signs of the chipping yips which stained his performance in Phoenix. Woods finished the front nine at Augusta together with long-time friend Mark O'Meara, before playing the 10th and 18th by himself.

Europe Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke highly anticipates Woods’ return and says nobody knows how the American will perform. "What Tiger is going to turn up this week? That's one of the conundrums.”, he later added that Woods could be brilliant, but he might not be.

German Martin Kaymer, a two-time major winner, wishes Woods can vie as ably as he can. The 30-year-old said that Woods’ mere presence makes other golf players play better.

Current world number one Rory McIlroy acknowledges that he has learned a lot from Woods, whom he portrays as the best player he had ever seen. The 25-year-old Northern Ireland player, who has won 4 majors, also said that he is very fortunate to be able to get close to Woods. "To think not so long ago I was that little boy watching him on television."

McIlroy added that the things he has learned from watching Woods will aid him attain a career slam, having already proclaimed the victor of the Open, US PGA and US Open.
