Wayne Rooney tips Tiger Woods to win the Masters
Wayne Rooney thinks Tiger Woods will win the Masters at Augusta
Wayne Rooney has tipped Tiger Woods to win his 15th major title at the Masters next weekend.
The Manchester United striker is a keen golfer, and admitted he’s looking forward to watching the prestigious tournament unfold at Augusta.
And, unsurprisingly, the England international has plumped for his Nike stable-mate to go all the way in Georgia, as the bookies’ favourite chases a fifth green jacket.
“Looking forward to watching the Masters next week, I'm predicting a Tiger Woods win,” he wrote on his official Facebook page.
Woods recently returned to the top of the golf world rankings, overtaking Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy with victory at the Arnold Palmer invitational last weekend.
However, the American has not won a major event since lifting the US Open crown in a play-off at Torrey Pines in 2008.
His ominous return to form has left many believing that the magical 18 major championships – a record set by Jack Nicklaus – is once again back in reach though, and the 37-year-old will look to get his first win at the event since 2005.
Rooney, meanwhile, is chasing a crown of his own in England, as the Red Devils close on the Premier League title.
