It’s Masters time!
I’m going with Phil Mickelson, yes I know he missed the cut at the Shell Houston open but we’re talking about Phil Mickelson here… I can’t think of another player for whom a previous week’s results predict a following week’s results less than they do for Phil Mickelson.
Sure Tiger Woods may be the best player of his generation but when he’s firing on all cylinders he plays the game with an almost inhuman precision. Phil on the hand plays the game with a near reckless abandon that’s equal parts fun and frightening to watch.
This is one of the best Masters fields in recent memory. There are so many story lines and with Tiger coming off his first victory of the year, it could be another classic. Personally I hope Ernie Els wins his first Masters, he’s one of the best golfers who hasn’t worn the green jacket. I made a list on my site of who I think is the favorite to win this year: http://www.toptentopten.com/topten/2009+masters+favorites. You can vote which changes the rank of each golfer, and if you don’t agree with my picks you can add your own.
