What?  No love for Patrick Reed to defend?

I voted Tiger, but here are my top 3: 1. Tiger: This is not only the completion of his comeback, but keeps alive the chasing of Jack. Everything is bigger when Tiger is involved. 2. Rory: Th

His treatment of Zach Johnson at The Open in St Andrews was embarrassing.

I'm not sure I follow?  Willett credits his pairing with ZJ at the 2015 Open as giving him the recipe for winning The Masters 9 months later.  Willett even named his son, who was born the week prior to his Master victory, "Zach!"

He might very well have been inspired. My 'beef' is Willets angry reaction when Zachs driver slipped on the grass while he was picking up his tee and it clipped Willets foot. Willet showed anger and stormed off mouthing expletives, even Zach looked surprised.

He's a hothead who flies off the handle blaming bad shots on anything but himself. He's not an endearing character on or off the course.......in my opinion.

@perseveringgolfer I don't disagree with any of your statements concerning Willett, but I'm sure the way he was treated after his Masters "win" didn't help matters much, as we were all (including the media) of the thought that it was not won by Willett, but lost by Jordan.

Harold Varner III.

Relatively unknown. Huge personality. Extremely likable. Hard working, "blue-collar" air about his game. Cinderella story.

I really like him a lot and root for him whenever he is in the field. I believe he did very well last year at the Players..?

Would be very interesting as of right now because he has yet to receive an invite.  😮

The embarrassing way Willett and his Caddy behaved in the markers area while Jordan was having a meltdown on Amen corner didnt help. The green jacketed officials were firing lasers out their eyes. No class.

I definitely see where Willett can turn a lot of people off.  I also feel like Willett couldn't possibly care less.  But the incident with ZJ was over-sold and under-delivered by a media that is constantly looking to stir the pot.   

In my experience, those who are perceived to be a certain way, rarely live up to those perceptions.  Both positively and negatively.  However by the same token, if you're willing to watch and listen, people will show you exactly who they are.

I actually can't recall any 'media stirring' over the Open incident, I witnessed it myself and drew my own opinion. Similarly I have no perceptions about Garcia and formed my opinion due to first hand experience and live video footage.

I tend not to go by any media perceptions about anyone, if I did I 'should' loathe Patrick Reed, but I don't.

Well, unless he wins a tournament between now and the week before the Masters, or cracks the Top 50 in the world by the week before the Masters (currently #150) your pick would be one helluva story, because he's not even in the field of invitees currently.  🙄

(He had a T7 at the Players last year, FYI  http://www.owgr.com/en/Ranking/PlayerProfile.aspx?playerID=16602)

I figured that was the case honestly...Most likely has the same chances as Karl from Caddyshack making it in I reckon. Ah well...

A quick Google search of the incident with ZJ brought a lot in return.  Even articles written after DW won The Masters seemed to still be stirring the pot a bit.  A full 9 months after the incident with ZJ and after DW named his son Zach. 

With that said, video footage can be, and often is, misleading.  The video footage I found in the Google search mentioned earlier shows the pair laughing while walking down the 14th hole at Saint Andrews.  

Either way, I'm certain neither Zach nor Danny have lost much sleep over it.  Neither should we!

For whatever reason I can’t access the poll but I like the topic because it points out the number of potentially interesting story lines.

Not my two personal favorites I would say that a Tiger or Rory wine would be the biggest needle movers beyond a doubt.

Well, since I would be ostracized from the forums if I picked Reed, guess I'll just go with Rose.  ##2

Nah. We need different views. Might not all agree even half the time, but we need them anyways.

I used to like Patrick before he went Rouge a few years back calling himself a name on TV, then he disappeared to the European Tour. I still like his swing, probably just another misunderstood player like Bubba.

I'm still picking Rose.  You asked for an interesting storyline; Reed is it for me.

I love the Masters but this illustrates exactly why it has the weakest field and is the easiest of the Majors to win for those allowed to play in it. The mid level players who are fully capable of winning a major on a hot week, if the top players do not bring their A games, are systematically weeded out in favor of players with no chance to win or no players at all via a limited field.

The Masters will never be exposed because people are too emotionally attached and it’s formula insures top names on the leader board come Sunday plus the elimination of those mid levels guys means a surprise or two towards the top (with no threat of that Cinderella actually winning)

It’s brilliant!
