The first of golf's majors takes center stage this week - scheduled for April 6–9 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia - and the odds say that the favorites to win are Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.
Will you be rooting for either of these three great participants or, like me, are you waiting for Phil Mickelson to come to life on the back nine and steal the show? It is sad that Tiger Woods will miss his first Masters Tournament but the details are that Woods is not "tournament-ready". Tiger appeared stiff in practice sessions and, according to Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, "He just didn't feel he was ready."
We wish Tiger Woods a speedy recovery and hope that he will be ready to play in the U.S. Open.
Whoever wins The Masters Tournament the event itself, as always, be a memorable one and will carry forth all of the traditional elements golf fans have come to know and love, filled with southern charm.
