So knowing that it will probably be windy Thurs and maybe Fri, which players will fair better in it?  Also, does it hurt some of the favorites heading into the tournament?

This weather changes my picks somewhat:

DJ - nothing bothers him

Jordan - mentally strong, good wind player

Phil - good wind player (now), knows course better n anyone and he's 46

Rickey - loves the elements, embraces the challenge

Zach J - also embraces the  challenge, only way he can win is in inclement weather

If weather was nice, I'd pull Rickey and Zach in lieu of Rory and JDay.

I'm sure the Augusta National Tournament Committee has the ability to control how hard the wind blows...they control when the azaleas bloom, what the commentators say, how many t.v. commercials run pe

Dear me....let's look for some obscure way to turn a wonderful victory into something less. "Would never" is a big statement to say about something that did actually happen. Why didn't Rose win b

He's on a roll, just let him go! a) the field destroys the par 5's b) Spieth is a short hitter

This... is a boring uninspired menu, sorry, just my humble opinion.

 

Guessing those bolded X's are don't go there.

I've heard it said that if anyone designed a course today with greens like those at Augusta, he'd be ridiculed and lynched.  Those severe greens are revered, due to their history, but they'd be tough to play on a regular basis.  Of course, if I was forced to play Augusta on a regular basis, I'd try to tolerate them.

I'd assume, for member play, the greens would be a lot slower and the pins in easier spots. Or at least they would be most of the time.

If there is a postponement of play for some time on Thursday, it could heavily favor the early Thursday guys because if they get to finish most of their round on Saturday, the winds are supposed to die down to 5-10mph.

Haha well they are way off.

What's more likely?  That Sean O'Hair lies about his age or the Stewards of Masters have made a mistake?  

I think you'll find that Mr. O'Hair is indeed 54 years of age.

Masters practice coverage is showing radar numbers - ball speed and distance, plus animated trajectory for some players.

He's a Yorkshireman; they're not terribly...well...imaginative.

Mind you, I think some of the golfers from the southern United States might be a bit bemused when they see "gravy" on the menu and have their first encounter with Bisto.

In all fairness, I find pretty much all of the menus boring, don't mean to single out Willett. Had Yorkshire pudding last year in Kent, it was very good.

Jason Day's mother won't need chemo, much weight off shoulders, maybe it'll free him up for a win.

I normally don't root for anyone, but this year, want to see a first time winner that's not an unknown quantity like Willett. Day, McIlroy, Rose, DJ, Matsuyama, Stenson, Rahm, etc...

Too bad they can't simulate Thursday's expected wind speeds...

    • First off, is this the oldest topic in the forum? 15 Years, wow. This discussion about the greatest of all time is mute.  All sports have the same point and counterpoints. Most Home-runs, best hitter in baseball, most Super Bowl Rings, on and on. Comparing athletes from different eras are practically impossible. From changes ranging from physicality to equipment, travel, nutrition, playing conditions, shorter courses vs longer courses, stadiums indoor vs outdoor, astroturf, lowering the mounds, 3 point lines, instant replay and more. Best of an “ERA” I could believe in that. Sustainability in a sport is a good measure, but not those that linger.  Having the most Majors?  Most Super Bowl Trophies? Individual sports, Team Sports? Jack vs Tiger?  Take your pick.  
    • Did they reattach the head? Not sure what the point of this game is. You could just do it on a football field. Why take up space on a golf course? Also they’e from Ipswich, MA. I’ve never seen anything like this around here.
    • 6-iron - Current 6-Iron 1) Slower backswing to feel the club slowing down at A3-A4.  *On a side note, somehow the swing path started to get closer to the heel? I had to start setting up with the ball more off the toe to hit center of club face. Like crazy development. My miss use to be more on the toe side of the club,  Driver with the backswing aid set up.  *This made it VERY hard to time up my swing. I use the carry on, and hinge of my wrist to time the downswing. So, I kept hitting a lot of low pull to straight cuts.  Slow-Mo TEE!!    OK, I am going to say... F*** You golf swing 😛 Just stop the the swing at A4. How the hell did the club get there with out me thinking about anything. Sigh!!  Like WTF!!! I give up, joking. I almost just started laughing at the range.   
    • Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.
    • Tiger’s driving could be more erratic than Jack’s.    Driving: Jack (I think they were equal in distance relative to the equipment they were  playing, but Jack stayed out of the shit) Approach (75-250 yards): Wash. Jack takes the longer end (mainly because of some amazing 1 and 2 iron shots). Tiger takes the shorter end. Short Game: Tiger not close. Putting: Wash. Both of them in pressure situations.    Recovery: Tiger Mental: That’s a wash. Performance under pressure: Both How much better than everyone else was Tiger in his prime vs Jack on his prime? Tiger set the bar so high when he was in his prime that most guys behind him weren’t even in the same time zone let alone, the same tour. Jack was pretty damn good but he wasn’t as dominant as Tiger and that’s where Tiger is so much greater than Jack and that’s what makes him the GOAT.
