This could be a very special Masters. Everybody is waiting for a great golf major to happen. The greats of the generation Phil and Tiger are now seriously being challenged by the next generation. The "Return of the Tiger" will happen soon. And the Seniors like Watson and Couples can still create magic. So, this tournament could be one of those really special ones. Lets hope it is so.

The winner will come from the 8:40 pairing.

You heard it here first!

I find it amazing that if Tiger can just get it together this week - he'll be back at #1 in the world and all will be right again.

ANGC allows its course to be in a video game, yet is still very stingy when it comes to live TV. No coverage until 3pm for rounds 1 and 2 and not until 3:30 on saturday. I know the hangup used to be they didn't want you to see the course or that the back nine on sunday was what mattered, but now they televise the entire final round and you can see the whole course in the online coverage. Why not on thursday, friday and saturday on actual TV?

Kevin Na at 8:18 - will slow down the entire field

Will the 1st round be completed?
Will the Jackets penalize him?

Geoff made the first bogey of the tournament-- the 10:41 pairing is Woods, McDowell and Allenby. Not Molinari.
04.5.2011 | Unregistered CommenterJoe
Oops! Corrected! Allenby it is.

I am selling earplugs for those following the 1:59 pairing.
i wish quiros played here in the states more often. that guy is really fun too watch.

Joe, on the website they usually stream coverage of a couple of holes for most of the day.

04.5.2011 | Unregistered CommenterDel the Funk
Actually they stream more than a couple of holes. They show every hole of a featured group for the entire round in addition to continuous coverage at amen corner and 15 and 16.

Best television event of the year. Unless Zach Maria Immelmen wins.

In all seriousness, folks who pick a big-name winner (Phil, Tiger, Dustin Johnson, whoever), should also be obligated to pick a "disappointing" winner too. A Zach, a Trevor, a Mike Weir. Let's face it, the Masters has had more than its share of "who's he?" winners lately.

Woodland? I think I heard someone say he once played basketball.
I also heard that Johnny Miller once shot 63 at Oakmont.
And Rickie Fowler rode dirt bikes? Wow. Who knew?
Grandpa told me Arnie flew his own plane, Ray Floyd was a great frontrunner, and Bobby Jones played by the rules.

Please start a 2011 Masters week "The Golf Channel Anchors Are Freaking Us Out" thread. Hurry!

When Charlie Rymer gets excited about the Masters it's like he's on LSD. He's reading the teleprompter like he wants to eat it. His eyes are all bugged out. Rich Lerner is about to weep. Kelly Tilghman must think that mumbling her words makes her remarks moving and golfingly sentimental. God knows what's next. I can't look away.

Let's go Mickelson! I'm really interested to see his paired performance this time around.

Off-topic... Geoff, just found your site! Great stuff! I'll be visiting here often. Thanks!

Who you got in the final group on Sunday? Phil and Tiger would be incredible...but thats not likely.

...How about Watney and McDowell...with Mickelson in contention in the group ahead of them.

What is up with Brandel Chamblee? Sitting on that Masters set ( why does it look like some cheap country club where the ladies always give you something extra!)....besides Frank Noblio, Brandel looked about a foot shorter than Frank!! GOOD GRIEF Get a booster seat for BRANDEL!!

Has Rymer picked Tiger to win yet?
(I mean the PGA . . . I assume he's already picked him to win the Masters, US and British Opens)
04.5.2011 | Unregistered CommenterWillie
Even Charlie Rymer won't be picking Tiger to win if he saw Tiger's practice putting today. Tiger couldn't make two 3-footers in a row. It was kind of disconcerting to watch.
Criticizing Mike Weir is an affront to all Canadians. Canada could stop exporting oil to the U.S.
