Ready for the 2019 MASTERS! Rory is going to take the cake this year I can feel it. Guy has nerves of steel, and he has been hot. My money is on him. Who's with me?

Welcome aboard! I believe Rors has a great shot. Probably the best chance statistically ever, and his game is in tip top shape. Be a fun week no doubt.

Would like to see Phil play well and have a chance on Sunday. JR seems to play well here a lot. I think this may be his time. 

DJ, Rory, JS, JT will all have mucho pressure on them, and we’ve seen what Masters Sunday pressure can do, and I think that trend continues. Would love to see someone like Sneds, Mitchell, Finau or some other lesser teired player win. It’s always nice to see some young or older player who hasn’t won much come out to the Majors and play well. Should be an interesting week full of heartbreak and joy.

Thanks @GolfSpy Stroker I'm assuming it's just this hole and very quiet sound.

That's right...this is where guys will skip the ball across the pond and try to get it as close to the pin as possible.

BUT - worth bookmarking for when the 'real' actions starts.  🙂

Interesting trivia about the green jacket.
The one that stood out the most to me is you don't have to be a Masters winner to own one...just a member of the AGNC.

1. The green jacket has been awarded to the champion since 1949, although Augusta National members began wearing them in 1937, so they were easily identifiable.

2. The first Masters Tournament champion green jacket was worn by Sam Snead.

3. Although it remains the winner’s personal property, the jacket is stored in a specially designated cloakroom. His name is stitched on a label inside.

4. The green jacket is only available to Masters winners and Augusta National members.

5. Taking the jackets off premises is forbidden. The exception is for the winner who can take it home and return it to the club the following year.

6. A golfer who wins multiple times uses the same green jacket unless he’s hit the weight room and needs to be re-fitted.

7. The jackets are made in Ohio, but the fabric is from Georgia – a tropical weight wool.

8. The estimated cost to make is $250, although not confirmed publicly. Each jacket needs approximately 2 1/2 yards to make and it takes about a month.

9. The last time fabric was purchased was in 1990. That’s because it was a 500-yard roll which is enough to make 200 green jackets.

10. Here’s something we can’t see on TV without zooming in – the three-button, single-breasted blazer has custom brass buttons inscribed with the Augusta National logo.

11. “Masters Green” is Pantone 342 to match the rye grass of Augusta National’s fairways.

12. What happens if someone wins back to back? Who helps the winner put on the jacket? It’s only happened three times so far – Jack Nicklaus was the first and put on his own jacket. Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods were helped into their jackets by the chairman of Augusta National. No one has won three in a row.

13. How do they know the size of the winner? Tournament officials watch as leaders emerge in the final round and pluck appropriate sample sizes that are on hand. The winner doesn’t keep this jacket – the one worn following the win on the Jimmy Fallon show. A custom-fitted version is made later.

I haven't chosen him after watching his swing, plus he will be bricking it coming from relative obscurity to one of the biggest Golf stages on the planet.
