Almost every preview for a Major begins with these five words - but really, are the other 93 golfers in the Masters field chasing second place?
The bookies certainly think so, with some pricing Woods at 11/8 to parade the green jacket for the fifth time in his Major-laden career.
The 32-year-old has taken a serious liking to 2008, winning seven of his eight tournaments with a combination of a red-hot putter and laser-guided irons as he begins his quest to become the first golfer to win the Grand Slam - holding all four majors in the same calendar year.
But with all the headlines on Woods and his chase for golf history, the rest of the field can quietly go about their game without too much fuss.
Defending champion Zach Johnson managed to hold off Woods last year, while Phil Mickelson - although hardly in the form of his life right now - has won two of the previous four events at Augusta.
And writing off Ernie Els, Vijay Singh or Retief Goosen would be churlish and incredibly naive.
Open champion Padraig Harrington leads the European contingent, most of whom have had experience playing on the long, Georgian greens to be in contention come Sunday.
The likes of Ian Poulter, Justin Rose, Luke Donald, Henrik Stensson and Lee Westwood have the potential to give Tiger the run of his life.
So who's your tip for the Masters? Can you see beyond Woods - or is it a one-man show? I've got a sneaky feeling this could be Luke Donald's tournament.
