    Tiger or the field?

    The Masters is coming up on Thursday and this could be the first step on Tiger's way to the Grand Slam. Augusta National is his kind of track so I ask you good people out there if you could bet on either Tiger Woods winning this tournament - and getting odds - or anyone else in the field winning it, what's your choice?

    I'm going Tiger. I've never seen a golfer as dialed in--EVER!--as Tiger is right now.

    I think he'll win by 8 strokes.

    As they say you always take the field. Tiger looks unbeatable and he likes the course but these others guys are pretty good as well.

    If I'm betting, I bet the field.

    If I'm predicting, I'm predicting Tiger.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Barring injury, I firmly believe Tiger will win.

    How can't you pick Tiger? He's the greatest golfer ever, and he always finds a way to win.

    A valid argument can be made that he's the best ever not only in golf, but any sport.

    I believe he'll win the Masters too. By a lot.

    My choice is Vijay Singh with Tiger and Phil close behind.

    I take the field. Tiger is great but there are many other golfers who can play a great 4 days of golf. Tiger wins if he can avoid that mediocre round that seems to plague him during the majors. I think this is the year a young gun wins a major. Look for Luke Donald, Adam Scott, or a guy like Charles Howell to win a major this year.

    How can you possibly bet against Tiger in a major?

    Yep, Tiger will easily have twice the odds of winning than any other player. But even as great as he's been, he still doesn't win about 70% of the tournaments he's entered as a pro. You ALWAYS take the field.

    Tiger won his first Masters in 1997. If we use that as a starting point he has entered 44 majors and won 13 of them. (~30&#37 If we fast forward to the year 2000, when Tiger was so dominant, he has won 11 of 32 majors. (~35%)

    If we simply look at the Masters he has won 4 of 11 since 1997. (~36%) And he has donned the Green Jacket 3 of 8 times since 2000. (~38%).

    If we look at just the past three seasons Tiger has done better 5 of 12. (~42%) Better, but still not 50%.

    If you are a betting man you take the field. The numbers back that up.

    I don't recall Tiger missing a major.

    I am in no way belittling or dismissing Tiger's accomplishments. On the PGA he is without question the best player out there.

    Sorry, I missed that you were talking about against the field. You should put something in the title that asks a question, and stuff!!!! Oh, wait....
