The current GNN Poll shows that the field gets the vote over Tiger Woods to win the Masters which gets underway on Thursday.
Woods still has strong support to win, however, as 31 per cent picked him to win, while 69 per cent went with anybody from the rest of the field. You can still cast your vote at the GNN Poll on the home page.
Woods is also the favourite among many people contacted by GNN this week. Here’s what they had to say:
Matt Hill, WebDotCom Tour player from Brights Grove, Ont: Tiger Woods. “He has his swag back.”
Nick Taylor, PGA Tour Canada player from Abbotsford, B.C.: Woods. “Tiger is the obvious pick and extremely tough to bet against. Dark horse is Sergio Garcia.”
Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member Sandra Post of Oakville, Ont.: Woods. “His putting and confidence is almost back to the Tiger of old.”
Canadian Golf Hall of Fame member Dawn Coe-Jones of Lake Cowichan, B.C. : Phil Mickelson. “Something exciting always happens when he’s near the top.”
Former LPGA Tour player Gail Graham of Kelowna, B.C. : Rory McIlroy. “He is prepared for some Masters redemption.”
WebDotCom Tour player Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C. : Woods. “With three wins already this year, he looks to be in top form and he knows Augusta like the back of his hand.”
LPGA Tour player Alena Sharp of Hamilton: Woods. “He’s in the groove.”
Scott Simmons, executive director of Golf Canada: Bubba Watson. “He’s fearless and knows what it takes.”
LPGA Tour player Rebecca Lee-Bentham of Toronto: Woods. “He seems to be back in his groove and has the confidence to start dominating again.”
Former LPGA Tour player A.J. Eathorne of Penticton, B.C. : McIlroy. “Everyone here at Predator Ridge (Vernon, B.C.) is unanimous about Tiger Woods to win hands-down. I guess I like picking the underdog.”
LPGA Tour player Stephanie Sherlock of Barrie: Mickelson. “I’m a fan and I can’t pick Tiger because everybody will pick Tiger.”
