As is usually the case, very little research has been done for these picks. The perils of tax season. That being said we will give it a shot.
I have a dandy threesome this year. Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, and Jason Day are my guys. I believe the winner comes out of this group. Now before you jump all over me for picking three of the same guys from last year, take a minute and remember this is Augusta. More than any other major this is a horses for courses tournament. Some guys just play well here!
Bubba Watson: Bubba needs no introduction. I don’t love his personality, but his game is built for this course. If he is locked in mentally I think he will be in contention without a doubt.
Jordan Spieth: The defending champ is a little out of sorts with his game. I don’t think it matters. I see him righting the ship and being in the mix.
Jason Day: He is playing the best of anyone in the world right now and has earned the #1 ranking. If he plays the way he has been I am not sure anyone can beat him. I worry he may have peaked too early, but let’s see if he can keep it up.
Dark Horse: How about Kevin Kisner. This is a relative home game for the Aiken, SC native. I like his steady game around this track. He will keep it in play and if he gets hot with the putter I think he will be around.
The Masters is always a fun tournament and always a special time for me. I hope you have enjoyed my two previous posts this week. Now that I work so hard during tax season, the tournament marks the end of a tough stretch of the year. I can watch the tournament and get jacked about getting back on the course more regularly. Enjoy the tournament and I hope you can get out on the course soon. A tradition unlike any other, hello friends!
