Bubba not confident of beating Woods at Masters

The form new No1 Tiger Woods is in is such that even The Masters defending champion Bubba Watson isn't confident he can retain his title from last year.

Speaking on Piers Morgan Live on CNN, Watson played down his chances of beating Tiger in his current rich vein of form.

"Hopefully he gets sick. I don't think anybody knows how to beat him. It's one of those things where we want to go out there and play our best. I'm going to go out and play my best, and hopefully it's good enough to beat him. And hopefully he's not on his best."

With his injury worries seemingly at an end, his green game back to his dominant best and his new relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, it seems that the 14-time major winner is over his torrid period, since revelations about his private life came to light in November 2009.

Watson is no doubt that the real Tiger is back, and with it the imperious form that saw him dominate golf.

“Right now, Tiger is playing so good. He’s making all the putts, his mental game’s right where it needs to be, he’s playing, he’s performing. He’s No. 1 in the world again, so obviously he’s going to be tough to beat when we get to Augusta,” Watson said.

“You’ve got to think that his life is settling down, his new golf swing’s obviously working pretty good, his knee is all healed up. Obviously, he’s in love and he’s having a good time.

“He’s enjoying life again,” Watson added, “so I think he’s back to where he was.”
