I liked the Masters more when I lived up North. It generally marked the start of the golf season.

It’s a brilliant format on a great and familiar course that often produces a tremendous finish. The limited field almost insured big names on the leaderboard.

I generally don’t watch the final round because our good weather is coming to a close and I’d rather play myself than watch. This year I have a wedding on Saturday so I will miss that round, also.

I think Paul Casey is primed to make some noise.

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I have 2 Japanese friends and play every Wednesday and know what you mean, Humble. Great guys! BTW Congratulations to Hidecki [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy I think he will be aro

Hats off to Hideki. His face and body language walking up 18 gave me goosebumps. Anyone else excited to see his Champions dinner menu?

+100. I’ve seen Matsuyama light it up before without winning - good to see him get another win, at the best major to boot. They say Japan will go crazy, good for them. And it was nice to see him show

I showed-up to a public course in Baton Rouge yesterday, a course I’ve played since grad school, and the parking lot was PACKED, and when I came around the corner, the driving range was packed too! I was thinking that maybe they had an outing since I’ve never seen it like this before. When I went inside and asked about the outing, and they said no, the Pro said, “It’s Masters week! For most it’s the official start of golf season!” When I teed off at 4:15 they already had 216 groups for the day, with the record being 226! Unreal....

Masters week!!!!! 😂😂😂😂😂

And the 'talking heads' said golf was on a decline! Even more indicative is the order data from the OEM's and how far behind they are.

I'm curious what you don't like about Faldo, he has more credibility than Nantz or Romo? I can't stand Romo as an NFL commentator, but he seems to have a following.

Hoping Rory gets his major slam. If he doesn’t another one for Sergio would be fine. After all Bubba has gone thru with his physical and mental health and how he’s been giving back to the game I wouldn’t mind seeing him get another.

With Rickie out I’m pulling for Morikawa this week.

The interesting story is going to be Bryson. Still not a fan of him but like that he’s going about things his way and will be interesting to see his strategy and if he can kind of break thru at the course and crack the top even if he doesn’t win

It would be great to see Spieth win again, but back-to-back is so tough. Seeing Rory win would be great, and I love a first time major champion. I have a feeling about Rahm this week. Doesn't it seem like he's always right there?

Yeah, how much drama would a Spieth and McIlroy final pairing on Sunday bring?  I bet it would be close to a 50/50 rooting factor.   I truly would be happy with either one winning in that case, would just hope that it came down to final 3 holes.

Two pages in and no discussion on the Number 1 player in the world and the defending Master's Champion from just 5 months ago.   

Man how quickly some people forget.   I think DJ will definitely be a factor come Sunday.  Will he pull it off, we will see.  While I can't wait for Sunday's round, I don't want to rush it being over.  I want to soak in every bit of this weeks Live From coverage and the first three rounds.   Afterall it's been 2 years since we saw an April Master's and one with any "patrons" to speak of!

To be fair a lot of us have not discounted DJ for the Masters, we are just dreaming of other names being atop of the leaderboard.

Rory, JT, Koepka, Rahm and Bryson are names we all want to see wearing that green jacket.

And Spieth finally got it done last week, so that would be an awesome come back story.

At the end of the day DJ is going in as #1, but have had a quiet few weeks, since his Saudi International win back in February.

Regardless of the winner, we missed the masters in April and should all be very excited to watch it.

I agree, most of the tournament is better, and way more enjoyable when there is no narration.

With that in mind, still Nantz is the voice of the masters, the hello friends is one of the most iconic phrases ever.

216 groups or people?  They must use a really compressed tee time interval or that new math I keep hearing about to get that many groups out.

I'm guessing it's players.  A full tee sheet this time of year for us is 208 with 12 minute tee times.   We increased our intervals last year to 15 and just recently reduced them back to 12.   Pre Covid with 9 minute times this time of year our max was 268.

Not likely.  I glanced at The Enquirer this morning while waiting in line at the grocery store and they now say the real scoop on Tiger is that he suffered brain damage.  It almost hooked me to buy one and read all of the untold truth... almost 🤣.  Seriously, how do some people sleep at night 😐.  I was half thinking Tiger might make a surprise guest appearance, but after listening to JT being interviewed on PGA Tour radio this morning, don't think so... unless he's in on the zipped lips.
