Will Tiger Woods play the Masters? Notah Begay III calls it "50/50"

With the 2015 Masters approaching closer (only 15 days!), one of the biggest storylines is Tiger Woods' health and whether or not he'll tee it up at Augusta National.

Surprise, surprise: Tiger is keeping his decision close to the vest, leaving us all to guess.

But someone who has a pretty educated guess? His buddy Notah Begay III. Tiger's former college teammate, and current Golf Channel commentator, told 120Sports it's 50-50 as to whether Tiger will tee it up on Masters Thursday.

"It's literally a 50-50 chance right now from what I can tell. But I think that's far better odds than what it was, say, three weeks ago. Three weeks ago I would've said it was 1-10 odds of him playing at Augusta."

"I think things are really settling. We've had some good discussions over the last week."

Sounds promising. It's hard to know where Tiger's game is really at. But if there's anyone who has a pulse on the state of Tiger's chipping woes and how much he has improved since we last saw him at Torrey Pines and TPC Scottsdale, it's Notah.
