Just seen the video of him hugging people there at practice, etc. He looks like a new person. He looks like he is feeling really great. Don't think that will help him play much better. Obviously he did something, I hope it is that he is off the meds.... CLEAN can feel great !

Viagra does wonderful things....

(joking!)

Part of me hopes he wins ... not to put it in people's faces, but I think it makes a great story. Probably could be a better story if he was more authentic to the real world, but nonetheless...

The practical part of me says he will be lucky to make the cut.

I put win. Long shot? Maybe, but this is a guy that knows this course inside out. A guy who shot 3 under on his practice round ( granted, no tournament pressure ), who seems in a better place, confident in his new swing, healthy, hungry and maybe most importantly, it's still Tiger Woods.

I went with makes cut but doesn't contend....Honestly...I would not be shocked if he missed the cut, and I wouldn't fall over if he won either.  But really haven't seen anything of late to suggest that he will be there on Sunday.  And I don't think he has the intimidation factor anymore....

well hank haney said it before I did. he may know a thing or two about tiger.

What Haney knows about Tiger is that if he says something it generally gets ignored but if he says something with the word Tiger in it he gets lots of press.  IMO no one has exploited their relationship with Tiger in a negative way as much as Haney.

Lol, pretty sure he birdied that though.....

And I saw many reports eluding to the drive being ungodly left.

From what I recall of the report I read on the evolution of Augusta, way back when the 9th fairway was actually better than the 1st for attacking the hole. Not saying it's what he meant, but it's not the worst bail out, certainly.

These threads seem to always get heated, and inevitably show bias.

One of the few unbiased mechanisms, we have to measure etc (thou, I agree, it can be influenced by the general public), is betting odds.

On Monday, Tiger was 45% probability to make the cut ... hes now, 58% .. so, bookmakers, reckon he would make the cut, 6 times out of 10.

Also on Monday, Tiger was 50/1 to win the masters .. he would win 2x, in 100 .. now, hes a little over 35/1 .. so, hes expected to win 3 times in 100.

We are all largely guessing .. and in such a great event as the Masters, I want to just enjoy it. For me, Tiger adds, and hope hes competitive.

Nobody ever thought Jack Nicklaus would win the Masters at age 46. Nobody ever thought Tom Watson would contend in the Open Championship at age 59. We have been witness to the immense talent of Tiger Woods. It is this talent that makes it very difficult to discount the possibility of Tiger contending this week.

Bovada had TW 50-1 last week, 40-1 this weekend, 33-1 Monday, Tuesday 28-1 and today 25-1. So I assume money is coming in hard on Tiger.

anybody know tiger's final score on the par 3?

-3. one off the lead (as things stand). He was really firing at the flags, too - quite impressive to be honest.

Was tempted to put a few bucks on him. But I put it on Spieth and DJ this week. I'm considering putting some on Rory, even though his odds are so low. I just have a hunch on Rory this week. Just a feeling that he may be dialed in, and if Rory is dialed in, no one's touching him. The last 3 times the two of them entered in the same tourney, he's won it, and one of the big reasons for that is he goes under the radar and he takes advantage of that. He may do that again this week.

Ha, the bookies are a touch nervous. They were happy to take money off punters when backing Tiger for a win was, to say the least, quixotic - and the generous odds encouraged that betting. But now there's just a small worry about being taken to the cleaners. I'd anticipate Tiger's odds to tumble over the next few hours. By the time he tees off he'll be second favourite behind Rory!

That's the only Haney blueprint that actually works.

His kids finished off putts so I think his score was ineligible to win. They were gimmes so thats just record keeping though.

Bookies gamble too. It's not an unbiased measurement at all. They're looking to maximize their revenue too.

Lines are rarely set to even the money out on both sides. That only happens when bookies don't feel they have a clue which way a game will go.

For example, the Browns played at the Patriots one year. The line opened at -17 or so and 60% or so of the money came in heavy on the Patriots. The line ended up at -13 or -14, but as it kept moving the betting on the Patriots increased to where it ended up at just over 85% on the Patriots.

The Browns won the game outright. The bookies cleaned up.
