So the spring is nearly upon us once again, and it's gearing up to be a pretty exciting Masters this year.
With Rory holding down the #1 spot, and given what happened last year and his current solid play, I would have to say he's the favorite.
But then you've got guys like Phil, Mahan, Stanley, and most recently Justin Rose all coming in to form (or in Phil's case, a rollercoaster of highs and lows). Then you've got the question mark that is Tiger, who despite his WD from Doral, is having a pretty solid season thus far.
I'm not sure anyone would have guessed Schwartzel to win it last year, yet he did, and in pretty dramatic fashion, which also leads me to the idea that this is anyone's green jacket.
I'm sure there are a dozen+ more names worth bringing in to the picture here, so what are TST's wise and knowledgable patrons predicting for Augusta this year?
Here's my best prediction as of late:
Winner: Rory Mcilroy
Runner up: Keegan Bradley
Scrappy contenders: Kyle Stanley/Jason Day
Dark Horse: Nick Watney
