    After that trouncing he took last week, I don’t think he’ll recover.

    Dufner is my dark horse pick

    I did it because he’s a local guy. Grew up 20 minutes from Augusta and I think 11 of the last 15 years the winner is a first time masters champion.

    Incredibly stoked for this years Masters! I agree with @DoubleEgger everything is better with Tiger in the mix. You can't sleep on Spieth even though he hasn't been playing great. I'm holding off to make my final pick, but seeing Rory complete the slam would be pretty cool!

    It is an incredible celebration to attend in person. The one thing that stood out to me was how hilly the course was compared to what it looked like on TV. Well other than the $1.50 Pimiento cheese sandwich and the $2.50 beer.

    Love to see Tiger back (ha!) and playing well, but I don't think he's all there yet.
    I'm pulling for Rory this year.

    I am not sure Tiger has all the pieces of his puzzle back in place again. He has had some very strong outings this year but also some very bad parts of rounds. Hopefully he can put the right parts together and make a good run at the Masters.

    Still took 2nd out of 64 of the world's best and played great all week until the championship round.  Just ran out of gas then for sure.  I think he's a good bet at those odds.  Not the longest off the tee, but has the shot shape for ANGC and a gritty player.

    Could happen, but think Woods is a sucker bet as the favorite.  At those numbers, I'd go with JT.  Wouldn't have said this a month ago, but also like Phil and Bubba.  Both won multiple Masters, playing well and coming off wins.  Of those on the list, I also like Matsuyama and Reed at 30-1. 

    Have to wait and see what the Draft Kings odds are like....usually put together a half dozen teams for the majors.  Should be a REALLY interesting tournament though.  Can you imagine both Mickelson and Tiger getting in the mix on the weekend?  Talk about turning back the clock......

    In the airport coming back from Vegas as I type. Got Spieth at 16 to 1, which I thought was a good number for him. Also threw a smaller amount on some longer shots, so I'm pulling for the field and a bigger payout.

    I’m thinking Bubba, finally starting to play well again, and this course is made for him. I’ll take Noren as my dark horse

    Tiger at his peak was one hell of a golfer man.

    Can you imagine the sound of the roars if both Woods and Mickelson are in contention over the weekend! Chills.

    As of right now, I'm hoping that Tiger plays very well, but pulling for either Bubba or Justin Thomas to win it.

    I was able to go to the Masters for the last 2 years. ANGC is one of the most amazing properties on planet earth.  Roll Tide... Justin Thomas for the win.

    Shaping up to be a great Masters - Phil, Rory, and Bubba with recent wins...Tiger has been really close.  I like Justin Thomas to win.

    Can't wait either. It's literally the official beginning to spring here in GA. Kids on spring break, fishing and watching the Masters. 

    I think it's DJ's year personally. But it could be anybody's tournament.

    I got Phil at 28-1 back in January. A lot will have to go right for him to win, but at least he has been playing decently the past month or so.
