Welcome to this week’s edition of the Wise Kracks Sports Betting Podcast.
Tiger is Planning to Play at The Masters
Now, this isn’t at the magnitude of Michael Jordan’s famous “I’m Back” announcement, but you have to admit that it’s pretty cool that one of golf’s biggest legends (if not the biggest) is set to return to golf’s biggest stage.
After a life-changing car accident that had him spend three months in a hospital bed, Tiger Woods has announced that he plans on not only attending the Masters but also playing.
“As of right now, I feel like I am going to play,” said Woods.
How about his game? Has the time off impacted Tiger’s game? He doesn’t seem to think so and said, “I can hit it just fine. I don’t have any qualms about what I can do physically from a golf standpoint. Walking’s the hard part. This is not an easy walk to begin with.
Given the condition that my leg is in, it gets a little more difficult. It’s going to be a tough challenge and a challenge that I’m up for.”
Now the real question is… Can Tiger actually make the cut, let alone win this thing?
I think he’s going to make the cut. I gotta be honest with you,” said Papa. “He would not go there if he didn’t feel his game was good enough.
But can Tiger take home the Green Jacket? Not according to Papa “He’s thinking he can win. I don’t see that happening.”

The Magnitude of Tiger at The Masters
Simply put, the Masters is the biggest event in golf (The Waste Management Phoenix Open is a very close second). “It’s an incredible event. I called the Masters on the radio from 2003 to 2018 sitting in the tower at 18. It’s the best sporting event – the best run sporting event in the entire world,” said Papa.
With Tiger returning – even more, eyes will be on the hunt for the Green Jacket. “When Tiger’s playing and he’s in some kind of contention, it’s a different kind of animal,” said Papa.
Here’s a quick breakdown of Tiger’s history at the Masters.
- This will be his 24th career start at the Masters
- He last competed in 2020 when he finished T-38 at -1, 19 strokes back of first place
- Tiger last won in 2019, marking his first major championship in 11 years
- Tiger has put on the Green Jacket five times
- Tiger has missed the cut once
At the time of writing, Tiger’s odds to make the cut are -110. To miss, he’s at -125. Do with that information what you will. We suggest tuning into the episode to get a better grasp.
