‘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!

Place Name Comments
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!
