I'm with Steve in the minority. And like Steve said, we're definitely rooting for someone.

It's kinda like this...

I'm a Cleveland Browns fan. So my favorite team every week during the season...other than the Browns of course...is whoever is playing the Ravens.

I'm going to clarify a bit. My first choice to loose is Woods. My choices to win in order are....Mickelson (needs to leave the Driver in the lockers) Kutcher, DJ (got to get that putting in check)and Koepka ( I think he'll go to the wire). Strange things can happen tomorrow.

If Adam Scott can make a putt he's in the mix.

If Rory can go round 18 under on the last day, I reckon he could be in with a shout!

From what I've seen so far today, it's hard to believe that Molinari is not going to win this thing.

And that's how fast things can change.

The thing that intrigues me is that Tiger Woods is not only possibly the best golfer who ever lived, he's one of the greatest athletes in any sport. He's up there with Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretsky, Babe Ruth and Tom Brady. Every time he wins, a new record is being set. History is being made.

He is second in majors and second in wins. He has made possibly the greatest comeback from several severe injuries in the history of sports. He has a chance to have the most ever wins and a very outside chance to win the most majors.

If any of the other players win today, and I have nothing against any of them, it's simply another Masters with another winner. It might as well be Patrick Reed winning. No one is going to remember it.

If Tiger wins, it will be like Jack Nicklaus winning in 1986. It will be a record setting win and a win that people will remember forever.

I don't care that he cheated on his wife and I don't care that he didn't smile and got angry when he hit bad shots. I don't care that he was caught on television using a curse word. Not that I condone any of those things, but they really just show that he's human. And as I've pointed out in previous posts, he has done wonders for the game by introducing it people that never had any interest. He's also done a tremendous amount of good with his Tiger Woods Foundation charities. Do those things balance out the bad? I don't know, but as I said, looking at what he has done on the golf course has been remarkable and I'd love to see him continue to rewrite the record books.

I feel privileged to have been alive to watch this great athlete. Those of us that are around my age have gotten a double bonus of witnessing both Jack and Tiger in out lifetimes. No one is ever going to say that about any of the other great players that are in the mix today.

If you don’t want to see Tiger or Molinari win, the yes.
