Fourteen-time Major champion Tiger Woods, 7/2 with bookmaker to win the title, is in prime form ahead of The Masters at Augusta next week.
Woods roared to a five-shot victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the weekend and was ominously pleased with his play, especially over the weekend when the pressure was on.
He said: “I’m excited about the Masters. It’s always fun to play there and I’m looking forward to going to Augusta with the momentum I’ve built up here.
“I was able to hit some really good shots the last two days and that’s a very good sign going into Augusta.”
The American also moved up to number six in the world rankings as a result of his first victory since September 2009, with Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood, who all missed the Bay Hill tournament, making up the top three.
McIlroy capitulated in the final round at Augusta last year, leaving Charl Schwartzel to win the Green Jacket, before making amends by storming to the US Open title.
