Love this golf tournament. Now, I can see Tiger winning, but I don't want to pick him. I am keeping my eye on three guys: Keegan Bradley, Angel Cabrera and, wait for it, Ross Fisher. I say Bradley gets the green jacket! Cabrera is the runner up. Tiger T4th. Phil 7th. Rory McIlroy 10th.
it's not like I sat down for 10 hours and picked the whole field's order of finish. I just think there are a lot of guys playing really well right now -- like Bradley and Mahan, a few others. McIlroy 10th is not an "absurd opinion." I mean over the past 2 years, McIlroy has finished outside the top 10 more than he has finished inside. it's impossible to pick. But I do think Rory is among the top 3 players in the world.
The weather makes this a wide open tournament. The advantage the vets had is basically gone thanks to the 2 inches of rain over the past couple of days and the prospect for more today and tomorrow. I still like the chances of seeing Tiger, Rory and Phil all in contention on Sunday. I think Rory wins.
People forget that entering Sunday last year Rory had a good chance at Tiger's tourney record of 270. I think he needed a 6 under. The way he bounced back at the US Open was great to watch. He's got unfinished business at Augusta.
Eldrick was a douche before and he always will be. With the exception of Rory Sabbatini, I'd rather see anyone else on tour win.
The announcing gang was in typical form yesterday. Eldick the overrated was described all afternoon as having an excellent first round in the hunt. Rory was described all afternoon as being off his game and frustrated.
Of course Rory ended up one stroke ahead of Eldick
