Exclamation The Masters

If the weekend continues the excitement of the first two days...hang on to the edge of your seats!

The number of top-ranked players near the top and in the running...is unprecedented.

Unless someone gets red hot and totally runs away and hides, or the weather allows some 'mudder's' (typically Europeans who are more used to playing in bad weather) to make some big moves...this could be the most magical Masters EVER!

It even has the potential, of being the best major tournament...in all of golf history.

I've personally stocked up on snacks, hit the DVR record button (to skip the few commercials)...and can't wait to watch.

So far it's one of the best. Five tied for first and four just a shot behind. There are close to forty players that have a chance to win.

One thing that I learned about the Masters. In most cases, the winning score will be within 3 of the 36 hole lead and the winner will not be the 36 hole leader. But I don't know if that will apply this year with this insane leaderboard.

The thing is that with the soft conditions, it's very possible for someone to go real low. I wouldn't be surprised to be a 63 or even lower today. If someone that's even par goes that low, he'll be in the mix.

This is the most wide open major that I can recall. Should be a great weekend.

A somewhat unrelated question I've been thinking about. When Jack and Gary can no longer be the honorary starters, who will be next.

My guess is Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw and Raymond Floyd.

Any other ideas?

I might add Fred Couples to the list.

I found Tiger's comment interesting when asked what he expects for Saturday. He said that the course is usually set up to spread the field on Saturday and that's what he expects. Should be a good day today and tomorrow (if it doesn't get rained out). Nice thing about being retired...we can cancel tee times on Monday if the move they final round.

Yeah, I've also been thinking that a Monday finish...is very possible.

Given the very scary forecasts for a possible massive amount of tornadoes in Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia...I just hope folks stay safe.

I agree but with the soft conditions, I don't think that there is a lot to do to control scoring. Usually the course dictates what kind of shot must be hit but with the greens so soft, players will have the option to hit the shot that they want.

Unless the weather report changes dramatically, I think that a Monday finish is a done deal.
