Tomorrow is the start of golfs first major of the year, The Masters as Augusta.

I was thinking about starting such a thread.

Augusta National rocks: so much tradition, the wind through the pines, the azaleas, the rolling hills. My brother and I made it to the Monday practice round last year. One of the best days I've ever had. I'm still drooling over the pictures I took that day.

As for this year, I think Mickelson is the popular favorite, and nobody in their right mind would bet against him. Tiger's got a decent shot, though he's still working on facets of his game; Els is always a favorite; Singh has had some putting issues lately, and Augusta's not a place to have putting problems.

As a dark horse, I like David Toms. He's not a bomber, but he gets around the course just fine.

However, until he disproves it, Mickelson's the one to beat, he's already got 3 wins this year, so I'm gonna stick with him to repeat.

Hi Tom,

Im going with Mickelson as well, I think Woods may go very close though and I think one of the Englishmen may do well (I hope !)

Tiger..

This is his favorite major and he loves this course. If he can keep it in play off the tee he should win this easy.

Who will win? The golfer with the lowest score - that is for certain.

I have $100 on David Toms at 28 to 1. Guess who I'm cheering for.

I am cheering for Mickelson. He has always been one of the main golfers I like to follow (along with Justin Leonard). Otherwise I am looking at Els to win if Phil does not. I just hope that some nobody doesn't win it. There has been too much of that in the last few years at the majors.

I heard the greens are the fastest they have ever been and the players are actually hoping for rain to slow them down!

Jasper Parnevik might have had a shot if he hadn't left his clubs at home.  Silly

Why anyone but Phil? Because he's a good guy?

I'd love to see the Hefty Lefty win it back-to-back. I think that'd be great.
