CITY VIEWS: CAN TIGER WOODS WIN THIS WEEK’S US MASTERS?

GEORGE CARR | DEUTSCHE BANK
“Of course he can, he’s Tiger Woods, he plays to win. Tiger is not the sort of person who would go into anything under-prepared and he will have been practicising. He seems to have a certain aura about him and you can guarantee that no player will want the pressure of being paired alongside him.”

JIM PACKHAM | TOBELL INSURANCE
“All eyes will be fixed on Tiger Woods this week, but he is so mentally strong, I don’t think it will affect him one bit.

As soon as he gets his hands on a golf club it’s as if he enters into a zone where nothing else exists. He will have had plenty of practice also.”

TONY KEY | R&Q INVESTMENT HOLDINGS
“No, clearly this is a man with too much on his plate at the moment and I don’t believe that, mentally, he is in the right place. One day he will be, I’m sure, but it will take a super-human effort to win this so soon. Others have since closed the gap and have ended the American dominance.”
