‘Tis the season!
Woo hoo, The Masters is at last upon us! And as I like to do, I’m gonna pick my top ten and we’ll see how badly I screwed up come Sunday evening!
|1.||Tiger Woods||Are you kidding? He’s coming off wins in the last two Majors and looking for another Tiger Slam, not to mention getting within one Green Jacket of Jack’s all-time record of six.|
|2.||Charles Howell III||Hometown boy with a hot hand is gonna make a run this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him slipping on the jacket one of these years.|
|3.||K.J. Choi||Just a gut feeling.|
|4.||Chris DiMarco||Bridesmaid again, or at least among them. But there’s a Masters or PGA in this man’s future, and he always plays well here anyway.|
|5.||Geoff Ogilvy||The man is going to prove that his US Open win was no fluke by backing it up with more strong play.|
|6.||Phil Mickelson||Augusta is a natural fit for Phil, and he always plays well here. But he’s not going back-to-back.|
|7.||John Rollins||This one from the stats–he’s fourth all-around (and we all know Augusta tests that, and already has a few top-tens this year.|
|8.||Bernhard Langer||Der alter Mann has been playing like a junge lately, and experience counts for everything at Augusta.|
|9.||Camilo Villegas||Some rookie always amazes at Augusta, and Villegas, from what I’ve seen, knows no fear.|
|10.||Robert Allenby||Consistency counts, and he has six top tens in his eight events this year.|
And a major woo hoo to new Masters chairman Billy Payne for reinstating the “win and in” qualification!
