Tiger Woods Emerges as Masters 2018 Betting Odds Favorite

Tiger Woods Taylor Made driver

After grinding it out on the front nine in the cool morning conditions, the Dubliner birdied the 10th and added further birdies on the 12th and 16th to move to two under only to bogey the 18th where his approach found a greenside bunker and he failed to get up and down.

Tiger Woods catches a ball on the 17th hole during the second round of the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook Resort Copperhead Course March 9, 2018 in Palm Harbor, Florida.

"My dad always told me, 'Just putt to the picture, '" he later said.

Stenson, who missed the cut previous year at Bay Hill but has four top-8 finishes in his last five starts at the API, ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting (3.733) and sixth in strokes gained: tee-to-green (1.619) while making nine birdies, including seven in an eight-hole stretch starting at No. 9.

"From the time I was there as an amateur to my first win and to my other wins there as well, I just love playing Augusta National".

"No one's going to unseat his ability to do what he did on the golf course, what he can do mentally and how he can grind through stuff".

On Thursday, Goydos carded back-to-back bogeys to slip to two-under, then grinded out an even-par second nine for a two-under in the round.

The 14-time major victor Woods easily had group partner Day's measure on day one at Florida's famed Bay Hill course, firing a four-under-par 68 while Day struggled to a 73.

He then holed a 10-foot par putt at the last to round off another excellent day's work in the countdown to the Masters, for which his odds have plummeted in recent weeks.

Woods said he is starting to feel more like his old self after such a long time out of action due to injury.

After four back surgeries and almost as many failed comeback attempts, Woods looks increasingly like the Tiger of old. "That's just because I've got my feels back again".

After years of battling back woes, Woods, who underwent spinal fusion surgery last April, appears to be back close to the form that helped him win 14 major titles.
