NEW YORK - Tiger Woods’ caddie Steve Williams thinks that the crowd will be good to the golfer when he makes his comeback to the game at Augusta in April.
It will be Woods’ first Masters tournament following the exposure of his sexcapades last year.
“Augusta are very specific with who they let in there, so they are genuine golf fans. I don’t really expect any of those people having any problems. I think they will be very happy to see Tiger playing at Augusta where he’s been successful,” the New York Post quoted him as saying.
He added: “The people that are going to watch at Augusta are called patrons there, not spectators. They are all golf fans and it is a very difficult tournament to get into. It is the only golf tournament in the world there is waiting list to get in to.”
Williams has been with Woods’ in the course for 11 years, during which time the champion player has won 13 of his 14 majors.
Williams insists that Woods has strong chances of winning his 15th major and fifth green jacket.
He said: “Tiger doesn’t play in golf tournaments unless he believes he can win. By granting those media interviews and taking those questions about the Masters indicates to me that he eally is getting ready and feels like he is going to be able to compete”. (ANI)
