Who do you like?  Will ratings be down without Tiger?

I know that I'm gonna get downvotes for this but I know everyone knows this.  A tournament without tiger is just an ordinary round of golf.  A tournament with Tiger is Big Stage.

O-H!

I must disagree, the thing about the Masters is that it is the same course every year and has to a degree become it's own star. I am going to watch no matter what, I would be shocked to say the least if Tiger's not playing has a impact on the ratings. Depending on where the Opens are played I may or may not watch and I don't watch the players championship but again the Masters is a different animal.

Yea ratings will be way down. Honestly I wont tune in because the only reason I did was to check on Tiger.

These greens are going to be lightning fast by the weekend.  Better score well to day.

Phil, Bubba, Fowler, Couples, Kuchar, and English.

My pick six.  Going to be a lot of ups and downs in this one.

My pick for a repeat winner is Zach Johnson.  My pick for a break-thru 1st win is Luke Donald.  Haven't checked the leaderboard yet - probably just embarrassing myself.

Keep the change, ya filthy animal!

I think they both missed the cut, IIRC.

Bubba's got a new Hovercraft - no joke - this is completely awesome. I am rooting for Bubba - Stricker and Couples.

He has a $600,000 watch, too.  He came close to us for his 2nd shot on 13. Guy I was with was gonna ask him for the time.

Awesome - Did not know that. Just a few years ago at the Memorial Tournament - We had to help Mike Weir find his ball in the 4 foot high rough (yes that's an exaggeration) it was buried and he could barely see it. He was prolly about 35 yards to the pin - and he stuck it about a foot and a half away from the pin.

Yep. Pulling for Freddy but doesn't look good for him

Freddy is a fan favorite - local icon from Seattle - wheels fell off in the end but not bad for 50 something.
