|The Masters Picks Are Up!|
|Pick a few favorites then what the hell, might as well go for it...|
The organized picks and round one standings for 2014's first
major are on the site. We chose 26 golfers. No Tiger, so no
one unanimous. Defending champ Adam Scott and last week's
choker Matt Kuchar are the favorites, picked 12 times each.
Three time Masters winner Phil Mickelson shows up 11 times. The
2011 63 hole leader Rory McIlroy and 2013 3rd place finisher
Jason Day are on 9 teams each. 2007 Champion Zach Johnson and
rare Masters contender Sergio Garcia were chosen 7 times each.
Next we jump all the way to the treys, which include past
champion Bubba Watson, Masters rookies Patrick Reed and Jordan
Spieth, and occasional contenders Graeme McDowell, Luke Donald
and Dustin Johnson. Even more deuces than treys. The only past
champion deuce is Trevor Immelman. He is joined in the 2-picked
spot by Brandt Snedeker, Harris English, Hunter Mahan, Jason
Dufner, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood.
Six unique picks. Jordie and Brian have 2 each. Dan and Mike D. have 1 each. The other 11 of us missed out on a Masters unique, but everyone has at least one deuce or trey except Steve.
Well, this is it. It is time for the golf season to start. The course is firm and fast and there is no rain in the forecast. The green jacket winner will have to golf his ball well this week. The picks are not what I expected, but a nice set for some potentially interesting golf pooling. A few favorites then over 73% of the picks uniques, deuces or treys. My pimento cheese sandwiches are ready. This is The Masters, do I even need to mention it's gonna be a damn good one?...
Let's Get It On!
