Trevino backs Tiger
Last updated: 21st February 2013
Six-time major champion Lee Trevino said Tiger Woods was likely to win at least two major titles in 2013.
Trevino, who won three of the four majors during his illustrious career, said Woods was a firm favourite to win the Masters, which is played at one of the Tiger's favourite courses - and The Open Championship.
This year's Open Championship will be contested at Scotland's Muirfield, which Trevino feels will suit Woods, who tends to struggle with the driver's at the other Links Courses.
"I think he's going to win the Open. I'm picking him for the Open because he's not going to need a driver there and that's where he has some problems," Trevino told CBS Sports on Wednesday.
Asked who he thought would win the Masters, Trevino said - without a shadow of doubt - that Woods was the favourite to win yet another Green Jacket.
"No question, Tiger," said Trevino.
"I think he's going to win the Masters and the Open, yep," added the retired golfer.
Trevino is of the opinion that Woods is possibly the best striker of the golf ball on the PGA Tour, which he feels will stand him in good stead during the 2013 season.
"I don't see how you can dispute Tiger's ball-striking right now.
"Tiger is a mechanic. A lot of guys are one-dimensional and I think Tiger is way up on everybody because he can create different types of shots and that's what makes you a great player," added Trevino.
"You show up at the golf course one day and A-game isn't working so you have to go to B or C, and that's what he (Woods) can do," said Trevino.
"Right now as far as ball-striking is concerned, I don't see how it gets any better than Tiger."
