11 million dollars, 40,000 patrons, 7435 yards, 88 players, 18 holes, 1 green jacket, a lot of Azalea’s, and a roaring Tiger. It can only be Augusta National and The Masters week. The do not disturb signs will be in use for many of us as we settle in with plenty of snacks and refreshments in for the best 4 days in the golfing calendar.
The opening mens’ major of the season is also one of the greatest sporting events in the world. The setting, the course, the greens and the best players in the world including a certain resurgent Mr Woods, usually means 4 of the best days viewing to be had.
Tiger Tiger, Burning Bright?
Already installed as favourite by many bookmakers, Tiger Woods is back and in form. Whether he is in shape to win The Masters so early in to his comeback is up for debate but with Tiger, anything is possible. What is for sure is the added attention his return has brought to golf, from TV viewing figures to sponsors and media interest, Tiger is still the biggest draw in golf and The Masters week should be better for it.
Is this the Greatest Tiger Woods Moment from The Masters Week
Who can forget when Tiger played one of the best shots ever seen at Augusta when he chipped in on 16 en-route to victory in 2005. The excitement of the commentator sums up the enormity of the shot as Tiger went on to win his 4th and last Green Jacket.

Hard to believe it was 13 years ago now and there has been a lot of water under the Hogan Bridge since then. The world will be watching as Tiger re-commences the pursuit of Jack’s major tally.
The Best of the Rest
The 88-man field features a mix of form winners and some of the world’s best golfers, plenty of whom are coming in to form just at the right time. Phil and Bubba are both former winners and both back to winning ways recently. Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler are sure to feature.
The European charge is likely to be led by Rory Mcilroy on the back if his recent victory at the Arnold Palmer. Other Europeans also in form are Paul Casey, winner of the Valspar and of course Tommy Fleetwood who has lit up the European Tour over the last 18 months. Also keep an eye out for Tyrell Hatton, John Rahm and of course defending champion and new dad, Sergio Garcia.
