Tiger Woods "over preparing" for his Masters return

London, Apr. 1 (ANI): World's No.1 golfer Tiger Woods seems to be over-preparing for his Masters return, as he has visited Augusta National for the second straight week - something he doesn't do normally.

Every year, Woods would spend one pre-tournament day at Augusta to familiarize himself with any changes to the golf course.

And most of his preparation would take place back at Isleworth, where he would work with coach Hank Haney on shots he would need to hit during the Masters, the New York Daily News reports.

On Wednesday, Fred Couples had announced that he would play a practice round with Woods at Augusta on Monday.

Couples said he'd avoid asking Woods about his personal life.

"This is not going to be questions and answers. It's going to be strictly golf. I play a lot with him at Augusta, so this is not unusual," he said.

Woods normally spends far less time at a major venue than this.

But this tournament is anything but normal for the disgraced golfer. He is doing everything he can to be able to win a fifth green jacket.

"It's interesting. It's possible he could over-prepare...So much mental focus on the golf course is based on the preparation you put in. That's where it starts and that's where it ends," said Dr. Bob Rotella, a sports psychologist who works with a host of top golfers. (ANI)
