If I could bet on any group of players who all have the same odds, I’d take the 60-1 group in a heartbeat. And I’ve never heard of Patrick Cantlay.

This is why I don't bet. I would have thought Spieth would be the favorite.
Spieth is obviously very talented, but he's kind of a mess right now.

Last week is instructive. He was in contention after the second round and completely lost his game for nine holes to open the third round, shooting a 42 on the front nine. And his putting this year has been enough to drive a man to drink.

Maybe it clicks into place and his putting touch returns. In that case, he's one of the favorites. However, if his recent form is indicative, 20-1 feels charitable.

Finau at 30-1 is a steal.

His putting wasn't the problem this weekend, although it's been part of the problem this year. On Saturday, Spieth hit a total of 0 fairways on his first 8 chances. His driver was an absolute debacle and he was grinding on every hole, out of position and playing behind the trees.

Hence, 42 on the front 9. But his putting was decent for one weekend.

Frequent multi-hole patches of being totally horrible at golf doesn’t mesh with Augusta. Big numbers are available. It’s not like Spieth’s putter has been a tremendous asset lately either. Maybe he shows up but 20-1 feels like his recent play isn’t weighed nearly enough. He’s just not close to that guy from 2+ years ago right now.

I also like Finau. I don’t know if this is his big breakout into the upper echelon year but he seems like someone who has another gear. Plus, he seems extremely likeable.

Anyone who dislocates their ankle in a practice round, pops it back in and keeps playing as if nothing happened is a freakin' boss. (Dislocated after making a hole-in-one in the par 3 contest.)



The fact that he was able to grind out a top 10 walking four rounds on that ankle is astounding.

I'm Team Finau.

Holy Moly, I forgot about that. I remember watching him do it live and thinking, "Oh well, maybe next year for him." But no, dude showed UP. Walking any course would be awful, but Augusta?!?! It's almost unfathomable that he was able to play and to such a high level as he did last year.

That said, I don't know if his game is good enough this season. Sometimes Augusta brings out the best in guys who love it, even if they are playing terribly, so who knows?

I like Shauffele and Rickie this week. And as a dark horse, Snedes.

~70-75 guys with a chance once you lop off the amateurs and old guys/semi-retired past champions.

A guy I think could have a good week is Hideki Matsuyama. He’s finished in the top 20 in 6 of his last 7 stroke play events and is 3rd on tour in strokes gained tee to green. He also has a decent record at Augusta, 5, T7, T11, 19 in his last 4 starts. If he can have even just an average week putting he’ll be in the mix.

This year's offering was soundly led off by the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur Golf Championship, won by Jennifer Kupcho in a great march with Maria Fassi. It was well worth the watch. Great golf all around. An interesting observation by SBNation:

We’re so used to seeing this course only in Masters conditions, so it was fascinating to watch Saturday’s round played from the member tees and probably closer approximate what the original design intended.

Especially walking 4 rounds on THAT course. Augusta is a bear of a course with tons of hills.

That's a huge thing I loved about watching that tournament (on top of the high class golf). Seeing tees placed where I would likely play them/hit the ball makes it a totally different course.

Also - huge credit to Fassi and Kupcho for putting on a show down the stretch. I agree it was well worth the watch.

To help with your fix, reddit golf has a lot of users there for practice rounds taking pictures.

There's also a really cute video of my son golfing...

Made my first visit to Augusta today. Despite the course closing for three hours due to weather, it was everything I could have hoped for. Like a Disneyworld for golf fans. Just beautiful and it is like being on a movie set. As most say, the hills were even more than I expected.

Was fortunate to have a pass to Berckmans. It is the nicest hospitality area I’ve ever seen and only open one week a year. It is more like being in a mall / museum...Definitely not a ‘hospitality tent’. During the rain delay they had waitstaff walking around w trays of full beers / mixed drinks. All the restaurants are pre paid so there is no bill / tipping, etc. The pro shop in Berckmans has a bunch of exclusive gear and after paying it took all of two minutes for my goods to be set to ship home. Incredible service and hospitality. Bumped into Condi Rice in her green jacket and she couldn’t have been more gracious, taking photos w all. A bucket list experience even though, ‘just’ a practice round.

Jennifer Kupcho grew up playing out of one my frequent local muni courses. I had no idea who she was until this weekend, but now I'm hoping to round out her foursome some random Tuesday afternoon or something.

The Masters is basically the sole reason I keep a large TV in my office with a Chromecast hooked up. It will be on featured groups from the time I wake up until the time coverage ends. The low amount of commercials and commentary is the best coverage of golf, and maybe of sports. It really is the best week.

So this is something. The Green Jackets are aiming to have every shot taken in the tournament available to view on their app/website. Apparently they’ll be available “within minutes” of a holes completion.


Not sure how it’ll work, but apparently they are starting this tomorrow. If you are following a player, I guess a “video” icon would show up after they play a hole and you can watch it?

It completely makes sense. Chamblee was just his usual over the top self. He called it the greatest self-sabotage for an athlete of all time or something along those lines.

@Foxy42 or anyone else in the area for the Masters: I might have a few extra tickets for the Hootie and the Blowfish/Shania Twain concert Friday night. I couldn't care less about either act, but they're free tickets so I might as well check it out. (Okay, full disclosure, I bought that "I Only Wanna Be With You" Hootie CD in like 1994, but have not followed his career at all since.) PM me if you're around and interested in going.

Thanks, but I am already back in Boston. Had a chance for W / TH but work commitments made me have to pass it up.

Well your first mistake was taking him!

Rory is going to win.
It's an interesting pool where we pick 5 people. 1 is designated the winner (Rory for me) and one has to be outside the top 30 (Jordan Speith). Tiger is just one of the 5 I need to make it through the cut. I agree Rory is going to win. He looks like he's been tuning his game for this all year.

Your loss. Hootie is awesome.
