|The Masters Picks Are Up!|
|Most of us laid up on the par 5's with our picks...|
The picks and round one standings for this year's first major
are on the site. We chose a mere 20 golfers. That's the lowest
number of golfers since the 2007 Masters, but we had 21 a couple
times when we had 15 players, so I'm not calling this week any
kind of record. Everyone thinks Rory will win the career grand
slam and he is the lone unanimous pick. Young Jordan was almost
unanimous again, one player short. Jason Day was also a pretty
popular pick, showing up on 11 teams. D.J and J.J. were chosen
8 times each. Henrik got the nod 7 times. Bubba and Phil were
picked 6 times each. Adam and J.B. are four-baggers. No treys
and Reed and Rickie are the only deuces.
Eight uniques this week. Chris is the run-away leader with 3. Jordie, Joe, Randy and both Mikes have 1 each. The other 7 of us are didn't think any uniques would put on a green jacket Sunday.
I added several pictures to the traditional Masters slideshow on the home page. It will give you 12 randomly selected pictures each time you visit. If you want to see all the possible pictures, go to the "Other Stuff" page (under "Diversions" on the menu) and click the 2015 Masters link near the bottom of that page. On both pages, click the link just below the pictures to hear the CBS Masters theme music.
We certainly put up a tight-ass bunch of picks this week. Conservative play wins the U.S. Open, not the Masters, so I think a unique will make the difference this week. We have our usual favorites to keep it close, but half the picks are deuces or uniques. It's going to be up and down, back and forth until, as every year, the back nine on Sunday. The Azaleas are blooming, the pimento cheese sandwiches are made... yea it's gonna be another good one...
Let's Get It On!
