The Masters 2010
Things get underway today with the par 3 event. Obviously the big story line is Tiger Woods' return to golf, but I think he's going to have a tough go at it this weekend. You know what though? I'll still be pulling for him. I lost some respect for the man with his whole ordeal, but I'm such a huge fan of him when he's on the course.

What are you looking forward to this year? Who do you think will play well? Sleepers?

I love golf, and The Masters is one of my favorite sporting events year in and year out. I like Ernie Els, Camillo Villegas, and Steve Stricker to all play very well this week.

Discuss the tournament here.

Def Els...he's in good form right now. He's got to be the odds on favorite. Something tells me that Tiger won't go quietly though.

Re: The Masters 2010
Should be interesting, I'm more curious about how Tiger plays than the hoopla surrounding it all though. He's a great golfer, where he sinks his putts off of the course isn't of much concern to me, though I wouldn't exactly ask him to be the godfather to my unborn children.

Re: The Masters 2010
Lee Westwood's game sets up well for Augusta, I can see him doing some damage. I'd echo the Els pick too because he's been red hot. Though he tends to disappear at majors, even when coming in hot like this, so who knows.

I'll definitely root for Tiger though, I'm looking forward to this tournament.

Never met the guy, just love his passion for the game. I don't really have a favorite golfer per se, I just like seeing the guys get out there. Woods, Mickelson, Els, Furyk, etc. Don't really care who wins.

[quote=firstdown;685332]I see we have alot of TW fans here is there any reason why you like Woods? Other then being a great golfer he really pretty much blows off the fans and walks right by them signing nothing. He does react to the fans when on the course but its just reacting to them cheering for him and him soaking it up like some over hyped rock star. I think he has been great for the game but other then that I'm not a fan of TW. I would also use to think he was a stand up guy but that kind of went out the window.[/quote]

I do not like or dislike him from a personal standpoint because personally I do not know the guy. What I do know is that if it were not for him that I might not be playing golf at this point in my life. The way that the man has dominated the sport has made it interesting, fun, and relevant. Before Tiger I thought that Golf was a lame sport that old people played because it didn't require running. Not since Bobby Jones has there been such a young following of the sport. This appreciation of Tiger had absolutely nothing to do with his personal life, it had to do with his youthfullness and dominance of the sport.

Re: The Masters 2010
Great post, Angry. Totally agree.

Phil and Els both at -1 under, Cabrera at -2. It's still early. Currently 24 players under par.

Tiger tees it up at 1:42. I'll have my eye on that. I also really like Camillo Villegas/Rory Mcilroy/Kenny Perry grouping.

Looks like weather could be a problem later this afternoon. T-storms likely. It's really windy out there, too.

Tiger Woods owes me no apology. Go ahead tigre! On the course or off, work that signature stroke. Do it for the hommies!
