Pfff, why should Tiger be the only one with his own thread around here?
This one's for all things Phil (I mean Fil).
Crap, am I banned now from my own thread?
Which Europeans are getting picked over Rory? I'm not saying he will win The Masters by any means, but if I get two Europeans, he's going to be one of them almost every time. I definitely wouldn't pick Phil because of the injury concerns, but if he tees it up next week, he will be a factor.
Great thread!!!! Philly Mick is the man. He's a very good guy, and oh ya he plays ping pong too.
This might be his chance to FINALLY! win the Masters, with Tiger out of the field. I sure wish Phil had a green jacket. All these years getting so close, but still no green jacket.
(April fools suckers)
Phil's form (I stopped) hasn't been that terrible leading up to Augusta.
But I guess if he can't play the Shell, then he can't follow his normal Masters warm-up routine. With the oblique injury (anyone know if this is actually a serious injury), it's not looking good for Phil this year.
But isn't that always when he somehow turns out to play his best golf? Everyone writes off Phil and then he wins.
Spieth? This is his very first Masters and they pick him? I dunno about that.
I wondered the same thing. So I just went to the World Golf Rankings website and say that there are two above Rory right now:
Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose ... so perhaps those are the ones everybody is picking?
(Sergio, then Graeme McDowell, then Ian Poulter are the next three Euros on the list.)
He pulled out of the Shell pro-am this morning due to the injury, but he's scheduled to tee off tomorrow at 8:50 am still. I guess we'll just have to see what happens.
No real word on if this is a legit injury that could keep out of the Masters yet.
Wow, man, I hope he makes it to Augusta healthy
If Lefty can't make it, all isn't lost. There are still some great players left to put on the green jacket - wouldn't be upset if Kuchar, McIlroy, McDowell, Poulter, Westwood, Donald, Dufner, Schnedeker, Furyk, Augusta's own Charles Howell III - even a newbiy like Russell Henley (U of GA). If Zach Johnson or Adam Scott wins another one, that wouldn't upset me either. There's a ton of others capapble (Stenson, Dustin Johnson, Watney, Haas, Webb Simpson). It'll be great to watch from start to finish. Tiger who?
