Nick Faldo once said that when he helped Woods into the green jacket at the 1997 Masters, he thought at the time it might be the only major Woods could win because Augusta National creates a buffer zone — no press, no photographer, practically nobody inside the ropes except players and caddies.

Add that to his T11 at last year's Honda Classic and he could certainly make a mark.

Are the sportsbooks still overrating his chances, nonetheless? .

Tiger Woods hits on of a bunker on the 10th hole during the Honda Classic Cares Pro-Am at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on February 21, 2018.

It was by far his most impressive round in this nascent comeback. Back then, the tournament was held at Weston Hill G&C.

Noren, a nine-times European Tour victor, birdied his final hole for a one-shot lead over PGA champion Justin Thomas, Morgan Hoffman and Daniel Berger on a windy day at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

After making the cut at Torrey Pines in January, Woods missed the cut at Riviera Country Club last week, where he was again erratic off the tee and also struggled on the greens. The southpaw took a three-week respite and should resume his leaderboard offensive with a stellar all-around game that has him 8th on Tour in SG: Total.

Drought-stricken Cape Town's Day Zero moves to July
In Cape Town, South Africa, they're calling it "Day Zero" - the day when the taps run dry. This article was originally published by Business Insider .

Past Champions in the field: Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington, Russell Henley, Michael Thompson, Rory McIlroy, Rory Sabbatini, Camilo Villegas and Luke Donald.

Woods, 42, has not won a major since the 2008 U.S. Open, but a fellow multiple major champion suspects the American still has another special performance up his sleeve.

[I] s Tiger overrated?

Rory McIlroy played with him last week at Riviera and suggested the gallery costs Woods a half-shot a round.

In the European event, 14/1 Thorbjorn Olesen and last year's victor, 18/1 Jeunghun Wang, are the only two players to trade at less than 20/1 - the price you can get on all of Andy Sullivan, Chris Wood and Julian Suri. He's encouraged by the result, though, and says that it doesn't quite reflect his quality of play.

There's a trio of golfers grouped together after Fowler on the odds list. "This is one of the youngest average ages on the PGA tour".

He's made four straight cuts, but we're basing this pick on his solid record at PGA National: six-for-seven in cuts made since 2011, including five top 25s. The 35-year-old Swede is blooming late and becoming one of the most consistent names on tour, and at a price that's reasonable. Some of my shots, they are not the same as they used to be.
