    I will hotlink the images for tee times, leaderboard, shot tracker, featured groups, Amen corner and holes 15 + 16 when the info comes out and the Masters site is updated.

    It's ridiculous that they wait until Tuesday.

    Heh. You're probably right about that happening, Wobbl.

    Gonna go do my part and sacrifice a couple goats to encourage the outcome we all desire. Rory and Tiger in a playoff, obviously.

    It's also ridiculous that the TV coverage doesn't start until half the field (if not more) is done for the day.

    Yeah, it will be nice when Augusta moves into the 21st century. Worst part of the tournament is the historical aspects they feel beholden too.

    I mean, you can modernize but still preserve tradition without going overboard.

    What are you talking about? Those tee times are straight fire. You're telling me you aren't psyched to watch Mike '260 driving average' Weir and Larry Mize?

    Here's the Masters field. 88 players. Narrow it down to 10 who have a chance to win. Explain your reasoning.

    Cabrera, Couples, Garcia, Immelman, Z. Johnson, Langer, Lyle, Mickelson, Mize, Olazabal, O'Meara, Schwartzel, Scott, Singh, Spieth, Watson, Weir, Willett, Woods, Woosnam, D. Johnson, Kaymer, Rose, McIlroy, Stenson, Day, Dufner, Thomas, Walker, Fowler, S.W. Kim, Ghim, Redman, Ellis, Yuxin, Parziale, Niemann, Casey, Chappell, Henley, Kuchar, Matsuyama, Moore, Pieters, Fleetwood, Harman, Cabrera Bello, Li, F. Molinari, Oosthuizen, Reed, Berger, Bryan, Cantlay, Cook, DeChambeau, Horschel, Kisner, Kizzire, Leishman, Perez, Potter Jr. Poulter, Rahm, Schauffele, Stanley, Steele, Vegas, Woodland, Finau, Hadwin, Hoffman, Simpson, Aphibarnrat, Fisher, Fitzpatrick, Grace, Hatton, Ikeda, Miyazato, Noren, Wiesberger, Frittelli, Kodaira, Reavie, Smith, Sharma

    Here's my reasoning:

    First timers don't win the Masters.

    Bye (16): Ghim, Redman, Ellis, Yuxin, Parziale, Niemann, Li, Bryan, Cook, Kizzire, Schauffele, Finau, Miyazato, Frittelli, Kodaira, Sharma

    71 left.

    Guys over 50 don't win majors.

    Bye (8): Couples, Langer, Lyle, Mize, Olazabal, O'Meara, Singh, Woosnam

    63 left.

    Form over the last year matters. The last 8 winners had won a golf tournament on one of the 4 or 5 major/major-ish tours around the world in the prior 12 months.

    Bye (23): Cabrera, Immelman, Weir, Z. Johnson, Schwartzel, Scott, Willett, Woods, Walker, Fowler, Henley, Kuchar, Moore, Pieters, F. Molinari, Oosthuizen, Reed, Finau, Hadwin, Hoffman, Simpson, Fisher, Reavie

    40 left.

    Lets recap who we have left.

    Garcia, Mickelson, Spieth, Watson, D. Johnson, Rose, McIlroy, Stenson, Day, Dufner, Thomas, S.W. Kim, Casey, Chappell, Matsuyama, Fleetwood, Harman, Cabrera Bello, Berger, Cantlay, DeChambeau, Horschel, Kisner, Leishman, Perez, Potter Jr, Poulter, Rahm, Stanley, Steele, Vegas, Woodland, Aphibarnrat, Fitzpatrick, Grace, Hatton, Ikeda, Noren, Wiesberger, Smith

    Almost all Masters winners have previously contended in a major. 9 of the last 10 Masters winners had a top 10 finish in a major prior to their Masters win.

    Bye (12): S.W. Kim, Cantlay, DeChambeau, Potter Jr, Rahm, Stanley, Steele, Vegas, Woodland, Aphibarnrat, Ikeda, Wiesberger

    28 left.

    Major team competition experience is key towards winning the Masters. 28 of the last 30 Masters have been won by someone who had previously played in either the Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup.

    Bye (7): Fleetwood, Harman, Horschel, Perez, Hatton, Noren, Smith

    21 left.

    Very few "short" hitters win the Masters. The last 10 times the tournament has been contested, the winner was in the top 100 of driving distance on the major tour they play during that season.

    Bye (17): Kisner, Dufner, Poulter, Fitzpatrick

    17 left.

    Players in their 40's rarely win majors. 2 of the last 22 majors have been won by golfers in their 40's.

    Bye (4): Mickelson, Watson, Stenson, Casey

    13 left.

    Lets recap who is left.

    Garcia, Spieth, D. Johnson, Rose, McIlroy, Day, Thomas, Chappell, Matsuyama, Cabrera Bello, Berger, Leishman, Grace

    Playing well at the Masters the previous year is important. The last 20 times the tournament has been contested, it was won by someone who made the cut at the Masters the previous year.

    Bye (2): D. Johnson, Cabrera Bello

    11 left.

    A high world ranking usually correlates with winning majors. 20 of the past 21 majors contested have been won by players in the top 39 of the world rankings.

    Bye (1): Chappell

    10 who can win the Masters: Garcia, Spieth, Rose, Day, Thomas, Matsuyama, Berger, Leishman, Grace

    I tend to think you can narrow it down further to this.

    A golfer named Justin will win the Masters

    Rose or Thomas.

    I think golf is way too deep right now to by the rankings, but I see the distinction more as top-20 right now. You have Mickelson at 19 and Kuchar at 20 and all the guys ahead feel like really solid players, in-form or both. No one there would surprise me that much.

    Odds are interesting. There's basically five guys(McIlroy, Spieth, DJ, Thomas, Woods) giving the same return for a win. If I had to rate them, I would go 1. McIlroy 2. Spieth 3. DJ 4. Thomas 5. Woods.

    I don't really see Tiger winning. He's coming in with form but it's quite a large step from contending in regular events to winning a major. He's got the history on his side but that's about it when comparing him to these players. The odds feel more like a reflection of fans putting crazy amounts on him to win. I would put him more in the 25/1 range than 10/1.

    Nah,

    Imo there is a massive gap between DJ, JT, Rahm, Spieth, Rory, Rickie, Jason and guys like Hatton, Noren, Leishman, Casey

    And then there is Koepka

    How the **** that dude is still 10th I have no idea

    He hasn't done a thing before his Us Open or a thing since, he's going to end up as a Lucas Glover or YE Yang major winner. Get like 6 career wins and a major.

    Thomas bettered Fowler's 10 year career in one season.

    Sorry, I find this guy to be so overrated. I think if he didn't wear such flashy colors, he'd be talked about a lot less.

    Yeah, I don't know why Rickie is still so highly thought of. He had one real good year where he finished top 5 in all 4 majors but other than that he's only really been decent. Still a good player, but not in the same ballpark as DJ, Spieth, Rory, JT, Day (when he's at his best he's realllll good), Rahm (though he still has something to prove in majors, he has been incredibly impressive on tour).

    Tiger cheated on his girlfriend?? Shocking.

    Honestly at this point, who cares. The guy is a ****ty boyfriend/husband. Still a great golfer and seemingly has become a better person. I don't think he's cut out for monogamy though lol.
