    I'm still trying to decide.

    So far I stuck one of my free bets on Matt Wallace e/w @ iirc 100/1.

    Paddy power are also paying 10 places.

    I think Molinari is a great shout but I might take him in-play instead - he often starts quietly and finishes strongly so there may be better odds for him yet.

    Bjerregaard's odds look too long, I think he has what it takes to do well there.

    I'll make my mind up later this week, and try to remember to post my tips BEFORE the event.

    I'm picking four players pre tournament and will in all likelihood pile on more serious money at the weekend once the field has narrowed down especially if my four picks have managed to play themselves out of contention. Really looking forward to watching as much coverage that's made available. Its extremely open with a large number of potential winners. Here's hoping it goes down to the wire and that a few Hi bees will be picking up some winnings come Monday morning.

    Louis Oosthuizen

    Tiger Woods

    Matt Kuchar

    Justin Thomas

    I donít gamble but I reckon Shane Lowry could be a good outside bet. Great short game.

    😀 I can see he is not rated by the bookies. I just think he has the game suited to Augusta. No idea how his current form is though !

    Won a month or so ago in the Middle East. Decent each way shout at 100/1.

    Anyone know when the pairings for first 2 days are announced? I suspect some time later this afternoon?

    I like to put a few accas on who will shoot the lowest of 4 groups and I have had a decent bit of success in the last few years usually leaving me with around 100 quid to play with on Sat and Sun.

    I think Bjerregaard is a great each way shout. Been on form recently, course suits his ball flight and a caddy who has won there before.

    I was looking at him as a outside E/w. 150/1 On ladbrooks. Some decent priced players I will look into as my outsiders. Lowry, Hatton, Willet and Noren all 150/1 as well. Pepperall 175/1 Hoffman 100/1 and Webb Simpson 80/1

    Given he has won 3 of the last 8 Majors that has got to be worth a shout

    Having looked at the odds, I'd like to back about 30 players (that's the way golf betting goes) but I've so far settled to back Rory McIlroy & Ricky Fowler to win and my each way bets will be :-

    Marc Leishman

    Louis Oosthuizen

    Keith Mitchell

    Lucas Bjerregaard

    The Masters remains very much my favourite TV golf Tournament and I can't wait for the opening tee shots.

    Koepka is a tough cookie.

    Reading the names on this thread, it just shows how open golf tournaments are. it's not often that the favourite wins it. Also, anyone in the World's top thirty could win it.

    Anyone think Woods could do it. He's been playing well, seems to have more confidence and was 2nd in the last major.

    The players are all mentally tough, but if Tiger finds himself in front on Sunday, he will cut a very intimidating figure.

    The coverage seems strangely flat tonight, there's not much on course atmosphere coming across from the galleries.

    I listened to the coverage on Five Live Sports extra. I think you get better coverage on the radio than TV, certainly more tee to green than TV, which is often about 60% of watching putting. Will try and get a feed tonight, but if not, happy to don the headphones once again. Golf on the radio can be more absorbing than a lot of people think.

    Yes, needs a few flare bombs to improve the atmosphere. Maybe a singing section too.

    The TV coverage has been crap, but the Masters website is really good.

    You're right, he does this a lot. However, you would have to have done during yesterday's round. He's currently up to third spot at -4.
