I don't understand people being obsessed with other people's sex lives.  Whether it's sports, politics, entertainment, or otherwise.

When it results in a wife Fing a player up with a 3 wood and taking 300mil back home to Switzerland, the story kinda gains legs past the sexual content. Just saying that it's not exactly one's "sex life" that's the story.

Apologies in advance to our international friends here but I only hope an American wins this year's tourney.

What is Tiger Woods's profession? Answer: he is an entertainer. That's how he makes his living. The entertainment he provides is playing golf, very well. Somehow, society has determined that playing g

I find it very strange -  and I doubt that I'm the only one -  that you seem to see anything that Woods does as a personal victory for you when it doesn't live up to the hopes of others. My hunch is t

Lots of Brits in the small field, all short on majors, so I'd be thrilled if any of them can do it. My hunch though is Bubba Watson, who's has the game and the form. Obviously Tiger managing #15 would also make a great spectacle. 

Exciting times. 

Don't count out Rose. He has flown under the radar but is playing well.

Not sure I would say Rose is flying under radar. A lot of people picking him which is why I’m nervous about picking him in my Masters pool.

Whether or not you (or anyone else) picks him has no impact on how he is going to do :-P

That being said, it wouldnt surprise me if someone like him was in contention late Sunday, especially with a ton of attention being on the "bigger" names if you will like Tiger, DJ, Rory, etc.

Sergio is the forgotten man here. He's the defending champion. I haven't seen him picked by anyone here in their lists.

The stats suggest that Day’s iron play has been his only weakness this season. He’s ranked 106th in greens hit and 183rd in strokes gained: approach the green.

“Hopefully with this current change that will slowly bring everything in,” he said, “and give myself a few more opportunities on the greens.”

Not sure that it will help that much. 183rd in strokes gained approach to the green is not good for Augusta.

That seems more like he's been way off than a little off. Who knows, maybe the new irons will bring a confidence boost.

Yeah, I picked Justin to finally get it done this year.

I just hope it's someone I care about watching is in the hunt on Sunday. When Danny Willett won two years ago it was a snooze fest. I mean who the hell is Danny Willet? (Well besides the 2016 Masters Champion :hmm:) Sergio's win last year was cool. The Bubba Watson wins were fun to watch, Speith's win was good. All of Mickelson's were fun to watch. Charl Schwartzel's win, not so much.

MAJOR CHAMPION: There are 20 guys who, at their best, play like Tiger did in 2000. At least physically.

I thought this was an interesting quote from the article Erik posted. Just shows the difference in the strength and depth of the fields on the PGA Tour from then and now. And I think you can attribute a lot of that to Tiger, he made golf cool, he brought more true athletes into the sport.

Couples told the Golf Channel that Woods and Mickelson were on the same team and didn't have much problem handling Couples and Pieters. Tiger eagled both par 5s on the back.

"They had two eagles and several birdies. They enjoyed beating us badly," Couples said. "I feel bad for Thomas. I couldn’t help Jack Nicklaus in his prime today.”
