Nicklaus won the Masters at the age of 46 in the sunset of his prime.
Tiger can win Augusta with his eyes closed. His game would not have to be refined to give The Masters a run.
Tiger should revolve his whole schedule around just trying to win the Masters.
He know every inch of that place and he loves their fast greens. He complained a few years back when they were slow.
The only issue is, Augusta has seem to have lost it's fear factor. It seems for several years know the greens have been soft. I see guys attacking pins they would never normally go for. Like 13 (Azalea) ..my favorite whole in all of golf. Nobody is laying up on that hole. I remember seeing Kevin Na with go for the green in 2 ..the ball rolled about only 10 feet after hitting the green. He was high fiving his caddy he was so happy.
Normally that ball would roll right into the back stop into the rough ..and then would be left would a scary down hill chip.
Yep. The course did fit his game pretty well.
In terms of the course and how it plays...that will change from yr to yr but as a player you have to go in their thinking 4 on both of the back nine par 5s. If you can't turn it over, #15 can become a 3 shot hole and many
contenders I've seen walk off that green with 5 scratching their heads.
