    The first of the Majors, the favorite of most golf fans. The beauty, the history, the class way the tourney is run, the terrific course that they play on, all make it maybe the greatest golf tourney.

    Who do I like
    Rory ...he's off to a good start, can his putting hold up.
    Rickie Fowler...also has been playing well. I'd love to see Rickie get the win
    Matt Kuchar ...leads the Fedex Cup ...doesn't seem like his kind of course.
    Xander Schauffele ...this kid can play
    Justin Thomas ...he has the game
    Dustin Johnson..he definitely has the game
    Bubba or Phil...the course seems to favor lefties when they are playing well.

    Forget Jordan Spieth...his head isn't right .

    Good analysis Terry. There always seems to be a Euro or two who is in contention. Molinari and Stinson come to mind. Doubt Sergio has the game right now but Rahm has plenty of talent.

    That's really it isn't kp, you've got to be able to handle those greens in Augusta.

    I see Freddie Couples and Bernhard Langer are back for another go. Final groups are interesting.

    Spieth, Casey and Koepka are the final group
    Phil, Justin Rose and Justin Thomas before them
    Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau and Jason Day before them.

    I thought they'd bury Spieth in the middle and put Tiger in the last couple of groups. Tiger is playing mid morning with Jon Rahm and Rory and Rickie are right behind them.

    Freddie!!! Not a good day, he frequently gets off to good starts at the Masters...but today he was +6.

    Leaders right now are at -3, including Tiger.

    very tight Leader Board, and a star studded one to boot.

    Should be a great final two days to watch! Tiger surprisingly is in the hunt one stroke back.

    I never thought I would see anything like this from Tiger. Never say never right?

    Sunday at the Masters is always special. Today was extraordinary.

    Had to watch on replay...am golfing in Myrtle Beach. Not a huge Tiger fan but not a detractor either and was rooting for him. Was really neat to see his reaction after the win. Happy for him and good for golf in general.

    I've golfed a lot in Hilton Head, but Myrtle Beach is a place I'd like to make a trip with the "guys" for a golfing trip. The other place I'd like to go is the Robert Trent Jones Trail in Alabama.

    Terry, one of the RTJ courses is close to where I live in Prattville, AL. Let me know. Maybe Corey can come down.

    I believe we have one in Florence as well. You're in Prattville? Shoot, I'm sending my son to your place for pizza money next time he hits me up :D

    Corey, I'm actually in Titus, about 15 miles north of Wetumpka. It's about a 40 minute drive to Pratville, I have drive around Lake Jordan. There is also a RTJ course in Huntsville.
