Tiger Woods is Roaring Halfway in the 2019 Masters

Tiger mania.

It’s happening at Augusta National in the 2019 edition of the Masters.

Tiger Woods (Bridgestone Tour B XS) is turning back the clock in an attempt to win his fifth career green jacket and 15th Major.

At the halfway point, he was tied for sixth at five-under.

Were it not for some troubles with his putting from short range, he would have easily been in the lead.

It’s interesting how Woods can still launch his tee shots 300 yards or more, proving his power game has not disappeared despite four knee surgeries and four back surgeries.

It was a great story last year when he won the Players Championship in the final PGA Tour event last year. Now he has a chance to add another interesting chapter to his comeback.

He is the straw that stirs the Masters. It is so obvious with the gallery that follows him and the TV coverage.

But with 36 holes to go, the challenge will be greater as the pin placements are moved around to increase the degree of difficulty.

Adam Scott (Titleist Pro V1), who won the Masters in 2013, is grouped in a five-way tie with Louis Oosthuizen (Titleist Pro V1), Francesco Molinari (Callaway Chrome Soft X), Jason Day (TaylorMade TP5x) and Brooks Koepka (Titleist Pro V1x).

Dustin Johnson (TaylorMade TP5x), my pick to win before the tournament began, is tied with Tiger, along with Xander Schauffele (Callaway Chrome Soft X) and Justin Harding (Titleist Pro V1).

I think Johnson can win it, but this is a really competitive field and the play of Woods really adds to that.

Sunday should be really interesting!
