Rather than clutter up the threads about who is rounding into form, here is its own thread.

If you haven't voted already in the contest, that thread is here: .

Also, this thread should settle down a bit now, but is still relevant:

Boring?  BORING?  Mike & Mike, Mad Dog Radio, etc etc how could these guys even use the word?  Did these sportscasters even watch the tournament, or did they tune in for the last 3 holes and expec

I'd like to make a suggestion to the Augusta people: Quickly write into your tournament by-laws a contingency tradition; if the son of a former winner wins the tournament, his dad gets to prese

It's not the weather, though, as you may expect ... But rather, Phil Mickelson is just starting his practice round. ;)

Regardless of the winner and storylines, Masters week is always great.  I think Tiger will end up playing, but I doubt that he contends. I feel like Scott, Day & McIlroy are good choices to be in contention as is Cabrera who always seems to be around the lead regardless of form coming in ! I don't see a first time appearance winner like some are predicting (Jordan Spieth & Patrick Reed), first timers don't have the best track records here.  Whoever can read greens the best and make the best game management decisions probably will end up winning.  Most majors are decided by the least mistakes and not the best shots.

I'm looking forward to The Masters this year for all the normal reasons + 1 more. I will finally be able to witness spring time this year. Not here where I live in the land of perpetual winter, but at least at Augusta!

this will be the first masters i ever follow. i've played golf casually for awhile now, but since i've started playing more serious i've gotten into surrounding myself with golf. I'm really hoping Bubba has a good showing, it really is anyones game though

I hope the cream of the crop comes to the top this Masters. The majors were awesome last year with the exciting finsihes and star power at the top. All four majors had star-studded leaderboards. This year's been kinda boring so far. Tiger's been out, Phil's been off, Rory and Adam seem to be taking Sundays off, Zach, G-Mac, Sneds and a lot of the other big guns have been cold of late....I'm hoping we get a great Masters and not a John Senden-Matt Every Sunday showdown.

Every year I gather with good friends and we watch Masters Sunday together, doesn't get much better! BY FAR my favorite event of the year!! I would like to see Rory snatch a jacket this year, this was a pic I got of him at the PGA Championship a few years back.

So hard to predict. I'm going to say Phil will win with Bubba and Graeme McDowell as possible winners.

Spring time is my favorite time of year. Love the Masters, my favorite tournament by far. Augusta National always changing thing, making improvements, etc. Always exciting to see what they've done since last year.

I'm huge Phil fan, and even though he's not been playing that good this year, he always seems to turn it on for the Masters. When he arrives and see those Magnolias and the Azalia's something about that place his dameaner changes.

Me, too!  This season's been off to a strange start.  Some good stories, for sure - but I'm really hoping that some guys who haven't been playing that great this year kick it into gear for The Masters.  If the usual suspects can't get it together - I would love to see Patrick Reed win his first showing at The Masters.  I've learned to become wary of "the next greatest golfer" but Patrick Reed seems to have some serious game.

I think Jason Day will get over his sore thumb and really do some damage.  He has had a decent track record of late at Augusta.  Also I think The Great One is really rubbing off on Dustin Johnson.

Last I head in a recent radio interview from Scott Michaux, Augusta Chronicle....the tree won't be replaced until after the tourney.  Here's the most recent write up from him from back in Feb.

Stenson is starting to peak at the right time. He missed only 3 fairways last weekend at Bay Hill, and hit 17 greens on Sunday. I'd love to see him in contention.

Me too. He'd be a deserving winner. I also think Lee Westwood might make a run this year with the amount of injuries/collapses the top 5 in the world has been experiencing.

I started to get the Masters fever about five minutes ago... It's starting to sink in that this event is less than two weeks away. :dance:

Hey check out the super cheesy Masters promo Sky Sports put out today:

    • I agree completely.  Two reasons.  First, when you've learned Aimpoint Express, you've learned to collect the information presented in those books, for every single golf course you'll ever play in your life.  No need to buy another greens book, ever.  Second reason, once you have the book, you still have to learn  how to turn the arrows and numbers into an actual read.  Yeah, you'll know the putt goes left, but you need to learn how to estimate how FAR left it will go.  Aimpoint Express teaches you not just how to collect the data, but how to actually use the data to determine your start line.  I haven't priced an Aimpoint clinic for a few years, but I'll just about guarantee that the clinic price would be less than buying three greens books, and quite possibly less than buying just two.
    • I've been buying the Strackaline combo books. The price of yardage/green book combo is $125, and yardage only is $29-$47. A guy on Youtube was saying you should only buy the yardage book, and spend the $78-$96 you save on learning Aimpoint. Any thoughts?
    • And those who continue to downplay it prolong how long it will continue to be used. A friend postulated that the word is much more common in the south. Can't say that's true or not, but it "feels" somewhat accurate. "We" (my age group) said it some in the early 90s, but even by the time I graduated from HS we knew it wasn't a good word to say at all. I can't remember I said the word other than when discussing the "word" itself since 1996 or earlier.
    • At the range, I just set my phone on a table at waist height, but they make these cool little snake looking phone holders that you can attach anywhere; this is just one example: Selfie Snake Universal Phone Stand - Black - Walmart.com - Walmart.com  
    • Those are bad reasons. Read up, and do the right thing. Unless/until we can get to a good % of vaccinations, the economy, our daily lives, etc. will continue to be affected.
