Prediction: Tiger Woods Wins by Three Strokes

Woods is on a mission to prove his doubters wrong and reach the elite level he played at for much of his career, when players feared going into final rounds if he was on top of the leaderboard.

Woods' game has been better this season than last, and is slowly starting to really improve in each facet of his game, including his swing.

One thing Tiger needs to do better is hit more greens in regulation because he cannot afford to lose strokes by not creating quality birdie opportunities.

Expect Woods to put on a show at Pebble beach, a course he's familiar with, and win his first tournament of 2012.

 

Overview

The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is one of the most exciting tournaments of the golfing season and is well worth attending or following on television. Very rarely do sports and entertainment stars play in the same tournament on such a nice golf course such as Pebble Beach.

For golf fans, this tournament will be an early season treat before the major tournaments begin in April with the Masters.
