Monty backs Tiger for title

Former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie believes Tiger Woods (9/2 The Masters 2013 outright) will be the man to beat in the Masters at Augusta this week.

Woods has made a strong start to 2013 and reclaimed top spot in the world rankings from Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy (9/1 Masters outright), who in comparison has made a sluggish start to the year.

Having come through a turbulent time in career, the 14-time major winner Woods is edging towards his best golf and Montgomerie believes it would be good for the game to see the 37-year-old make it number 15 in Georgia this week.

He said: “He seems to be in a much happier place and have his life a little bit more sorted out than he had even last year and I truly believe he’s ready now to win a Major – and I think it would be very good for golf if he did.

“People are turning on the Masters this year to see if he can do it and the viewing audience will be higher than normal. I’m glad Tiger’s back in the frame; we’ve missed him and the whole Tiger Woods phenomenon.”
