For the discussion of the 2016 Masters, to be played April 7-10 at some muni course named Augusta National GC.

Who will win? Who will be the surprise story? Will Jordan Spieth get out of his funk?

I hope Jordan gets out of his funk. I would like to see a tight tournament with 5 or 6 players in position to win on Sunday. That would make it fun to watch.

He's been on a nice upward trend.

Bubba isn't a bad bet. One of the best strikers on the tour, playing well this year, and obviously the course suits him. I'll be there this year, for Sunday's round. Can't wait.

I think Jordan will be alright at Augusta. He seems to be getting out of his funk the last two days at Valspar. Will be interesting to see how he does in Texas leading up the Masters. Last year he posted a win and then two runners-up finishes in Texas before Augusta. That gave him huge confidence.

Just a gut feeling, but I think Rory is going to be a major contender this year. Not going to say he's going to win it yet, but I do think he'll be in the hunt on the back 9 on Sunday. Playing really well so far this year. He just needs to avoid that one bad round which seems to be hindering him a bit from winning more in 2016.

I like JD and DJ for this... (see what I did there?)

They both hit the ball so freaking high, good for sticking greens. Not mentioning Bubba because he's a tool.

I'm a huge fan of Phil. Would love to see him win. And he can, because that course just seems set up for certain players, and he's definitely a horse for that course.

However, there also seems to be this sad thing that happens to pros where one day they simply reach a point where they can't win anymore. They strike it beautifully, but don't make enough putts anymore. Or they play great for three days and then run out of gas.....or charge at the end but come up short.

I think Phil is at that point now. There is of course always some chance of winning, but I think he is a huge longshot these days to win any tournament, especially a major.

If Tom Watson came within a hair's width winning of The Open were it not for that fateful 8 iron, I think Mickelson has a reasonable chance to win this year. DLIII won last year and he's 6 years older. "Just" needs to go on a streak.

that was the cruelest of all 8 irons.  but then he made a terrible atrocious putt from off the green.  i dont think he should have chipped it, but that putt was just awful.

I am hearing that Arnie will not hit the opening shot - if true that makes me sad.

Defending Masters champion Jordan Spieth has picked Texas barbecue to be on the menu for the Masters Champions Dinner at Augusta National.

However, as Doug Ferguson of The Associated Press reports, there is still confusion over what brand.

Ben Crenshaw, a two-time Masters winner, told Ferguson on Monday night that Spieth had chosen Salt Lick Barbecue, a "great choice from right here in Austin, Texas," he said.

But Spieth denied those reports, saying Augusta National picks the brand.

''I didn't select Salt Lick. I don't know where that was spread from,'' Spieth said Tuesday. ''Augusta National always makes the meals. So they asked,' What do you want to have for your meal?' and I said I'd love to do some Texas barbecue. So they kind of go out and search for a way to make it based on popular places. I'm not sure what it's exactly going to be. It's going to be Texas barbecue. I'm pretty excited for it.''

    • Day 80 - Ankle is feeling better, taking some full backswings. Focusing on a steeper club at A3.
    • Day 351 Some indoor yardstick putting drill tonight. 
    • Thanks. Is it wrong if I make two assumptions? 1. The difference between a "top" and a "thin" is where on the ball the clubhead strikes it, and 2. In either case it's usually the leading edge of the club contacting the ball instead of the "sweet spot"?
    • What a round of golf today. I went to play Hillandale today (par 71, 6026 from whites), which is one of my favorite courses in the Durham area. I shot my lowest round (80) here back in July. I didn’t shoot another 80, but I did shoot 87. It was an interesting round, probably my most lopsided one in terms of nines, with nines of 48-39. On the front nine, I surprisingly hit the ball well, but once I got around 100 yards, I went to pieces. A triple bogey from 70 yards (laying two) on the par-5 second hole. A double from 120 on the sixth. Same on the eighth. Then I four-putted the ninth from 12 feet for triple, missing two three-footers in a row. I got my first GIR on the 11th and two-putted for par. Then I hit my drive so far on the twelfth that I had just a pitch shot in (330 from whites). Hit that on and barely missed my birdie putt. I played holes 13-17 at +3, then birdied 18. One interesting thing was that through twelve holes, I had hit every fairway (ten total). Then I missed three out of the last four (the other two holes were the par-3s). Putting and short game were horrible on the front (21 putts), but I redeemed myself on the back (16 putts). Starting this coming week, the team is meeting at the course to play every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00, and I feel my game is solid.
    • Fair to say I've put far too much practice in due to the lockdown situation in the UK. The mat was brand new 2 months ago 😁😁
