London, Apr. 2 (ANI): Notwithstanding golf pundits' forecasts that Tiger Woods will struggle at Augusta next week, former Ryder Cup captain Sam Torrance has predicted that the World's no 1 golfer can claim his fifth Masters title there this time around.

"You are not dealing with just anyone here - you are talking about the strongest player mentally there has ever been. If he did not have a handle on his problems he would not be going," The Sun quoted Torrance, as saying.

"And you can be sure he has seen enough in practice to know he is ready to play. It's fantastic to have the greatest golfer of all time back and it wouldn't surprise me to see him win it," he added.

Apart from his fall from fame after admitting to "transgressions", Woods has not played competitively for four months.

Torrance, who is commentating on the event for the BBC, said: "Joining these brave soldiers for a golf clinic has been a moving and rewarding experience." (ANI)
