You're in luck, SC's Vishal Patel just wrote a preview: https://www.sports-central.org/sport...rticle70.shtml

Should be interesting to see how Tiger plays in the first major tourney of the year.

Well, besides Tiger...

Singh, Els, Mickelson are known contenders.

Another name I'd throw out is Notah Begay III. Also, they say Monty might win one of these years, but his time is fading.

I guess I'll be the only one on these boards, besides possible Peter, cheering for Mike Weir, the lone Canadian at the Masters, huh??

Now that he's played at Agusta National a few times, I think he is defintely a contender -- he won the AMEX World Championship and a cool $1 million nearing the end of last year, and has performed very well in some of the majors the past few years.

GO MIKEY! ...I'm not saying he'll win -- I'm predicting a top 15 finish, though.

...However, don't always think the top players will win. Did anyone really predict Singh or O'Meara or Woods or "that guy with a really long name that stars with an 'O'" when then won???... ALWAYS, and I mean ALWAYS expect the unexpected at The Masters!

...that's pushing it, but has he's only played in the Masters once... he might fair OK, but I'd say a long shot to win it all!... though I'd LOVE to see him go into the last day in the top 4 and see him challenge!... or what about Jerry Kelly!?... those are a few surprise names this early 2001 season that could compete, for sure... win it?... I highly doubt it.

Daly is playing well, but I'm not sure if he's eligable, anyway.

Alright... let's see if we can't keep this thread going for the next four or five days when the tournament is on!!!

OK.. here are my final pre-tounament picks... I don't want to go with Tiger... he'll probably win, but if there were to be anyone else, i'm going with who Els, but ERNIE ELS! (he' REALLY due for a major win after last year!), or else Duval makes an astounding comeback!!!... those are my "under dog" picks!

Let's get this thing started.

GO MIKE WEIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a Masters money pool going with 7 people.

My team is:

Els, Lehman, Leonard, Clarke, Maruyama, Jimenez.

Its pretty much a very good team, but there are a couple other that I feel could be better:

One team: Woods, Garcia, Price, Franco, Huston, Mediate.

Another one: Duval, Sutton, Furyk, Begay, Bjorn, Harrington.

Hey, it looks like Tiger is teeing off with Mike Weir today (Friday). I'd like to see if Chris DiMarco can keep his lead.

Yeah... everyone keeps the same groupings for Thurs. & Fri., so on Wed. when it was announced what they were (Weir & Tiger), I was excited!!!

...tomorrow will be the big test for DiMarco, 'cuz even though he's still on the course, he'll likely be paired with Tiger, which can mean a big downfall 'cuz of the extra attention (gallery), and just the pressure of playing beside TIGER WOODS... (like Weir in the 1999 PGA Championship -- he was tied with Tiger going into the final day and had a HUGE collapse...)

Well masters.org IS the one that they publicize (on TV, etc.).

Any else comments on the first few days? I posted mine a few posts down....
