Legendary golfer heads to Augusta with momentum after breaking PGA Tour drought.
Tiger Woods heads to the US Masters golf tournament as odds favorite and with momentum behind him, after spectacularly capturing his first US PGA Tour following 2.5 years of scandals, injuries and commercial setbacks.Woods Breaks Drought
Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a record seventh time over the weekend, marking his first title on the tour since the BMW Championship in September 2009. Two of his four previous Masters titles followed successes at the same tournament at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando, Florida.
This victory broke the longstanding drought and put him on 72 career PGA Tour wins, one behind Jack Nicklaus and 10 behind all-time leader Sam Snead. But more importantly, it gave Tiger the momentum he needs leading into what appears to be a very competitive US Masters, where he will come up against some pretty tough competition.
Englishman Luke Donald reclaimed the world number one ranking from Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy after a big victory in the US PGA Transitions Championship last week, and he will be hoping to follow it up with his first major Golf win at the 2012 US Masters. American Phil Mickelson, Englishman Lee Westwood and Aussie Adam Scott are also contenders.William Hill US Masters Betting
