Tiger Woods made a statement this week: he’s primed to have his best year yet. Winning with a commanding -19 and an 8-stroke lead over his nearest competitor, Tiger Woods has picked up right where he left off in 2007: winning another tournament.
The scary part is that the U.S. Open will be played later this year at Torrey Pines, a course that Tiger basically owns. The Open is at Royal Birkdale, where Tiger finished third in 1998 (buddy Mark O’Meara won that year). The PGA Championship is at Oakland Hills CC, which Tiger says he likes (and played last in the 2004 Ryder Cup. And, of course, Augusta is right in Tiger’s wheel house.
So what should the odds be on Tiger pulling off the Grand Slam this year and getting to 17 Majors?
