Stewart Cink says Tiger Woods can contend at Masters

ORLANDO, Fla.--Stewart Cink is one of the most underrated interviews on the PGA Tour, a fact that was clear during his session with the media on Wednesday morning at Bay Hill before the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Cink on whether he's disappointed that international players have won seven of the last 12 major championships: "Well, the only time I really care if players are American or European is in the Ryder Cup. So if it's not me winning majors, to be honest, it doesn't really matters who it is. That sounds selfish and it is selfish, but that's OK. It's an individual game out here. So I don't feel like there's any disappointment at all in Americans not winning more majors. I'm glad I got mine." Cink on whether Tiger Woods can be a competitive factor at the Masters in two weeks: "I can't believe you're even asking that question. We're talking about Tiger Woods, the best player who's ever played golf. I've seen the players who are usually in that conversation. I've never seen anybody who plays golf like Tiger Woods does. So the answer to that question is yes, I believe he can be a factor." Cink on whether this Masters feels any different with Tiger's return: "I think it's going to be one of the biggest events in golf history because the biggest player in golf history is coming back from an absence, and everybody is going to scrutinize his game and what he says and where he goes and where he has dinner, everything. I think it will also end up being a great golf tournament because he will probably end up in the mix, and it will be really compelling."Special Section: 2010 Masters Preview
