US Masters 2015

Recommended Posts

I think golf fans are in a minority on here but I reckon Augusta next week will be good viewing.  A lot of sub plots - McIlroy Grand Slam, Tiger possibly playing, can Bubba defend, can Monty not be a total cunt in the studio etc.

 

I've done a few bets, all each way.

 

Stenson - top class player, suited to Augusta, will surely win a major soon.

 

Fowler - was very good to me last year (top five in all the majors), so said I'd stick with him even though not in the greatest of form.

 

Reed - no form whatsoever at Augusta but is the type of character (i.e. brash and arrogant) who wouldn't be afraid if he found himself in contention.  Has played pretty well this year too.

 

Westwood - being harsh, you could say he is a perennial bottler in the majors. Being generous, you could say he gets into contention a lot.  Has an unbelievable record at Augusta.

 

Anyone give a shit?

A minority?! Golf was statistically proven as the GF'S 3rd favourite sport in an OFFICIAL study. Innit.

 

True this - came in right behind womens log rolling.

I adore the Masters. Especially that it's on in the evenings so you can watch it in the pub without feeling like a complete dipso. Best viewing Major.

McIlroy, Bubba or Dustin Johnson. All very long off the tee. The course favors the lefty, as a left handed 'power fade' has more room for a slight miss-hit than a right handed draw, which can easily be overdone and put you in a lot of trouble at Augusta.

 

You have to drive very well and putt very well. Some players with a lovely touch but not long enough for Augusta these days. I expect it will be one of the three named above, but such is the depth of talent almost anything can happen.

 

Can't wait. One of the best sporting spectacles there is for me.

I'm back on Bubba, he won me £1,600 when he won it first time around and then bottled backing him the second time.

 

I'll not be making that mistake again.

Jammy git cost me a fortune. Had my money on Oosthuizen

I've backed Rory to win and both Jason Day and Dustin Johnson each way. I won with Bubba last year and he has the game to win there again but the list of players to win two years running is a very short list. Rory is destined to win there, Jason Day has gone close a few times now and seems to be suited to the course and Dustin Johnson is another I think is destined to win there with his long game. Other players I fancy to do well are Mickelson, Adam Scott, and Angel Cabrera who all seem to love Augusta and I reckon even Fred Couples and Bernhard Langer will be around the top 10, as Augusta seems to bring the best out of them.
