    Not had a bet but agree with Cam Smith. He was top ten last year and is obviously on form

    Outsider, Connors from Canada.

    Hope Bob Macintyre has a great tournament

    Think Cameron Smith will be there or there abouts - awesome putter. Quite fancy Abraham Ancer after a strong showing in the recent matchplay and possibly Will Zalatoris.

    I like the Masters and its great viewing but sometimes feel it doesn't punish bad shots enough and turns into a putting contest more than other majors.

    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Ancer was my main interest. Seen more of tiger woodsí sandwiches than I did Abrahamís shots.

    Im, gooch and Garcia now have some sort of place chance for me now.

    Havenít ever backed Scheffler for anything but canít argue if he goes on and wins from here. Really is playing like the world number 1.

    Could do with Scheffler having an off day to keep it interesting.

    His leadís down to 3 shotís. Cameron Smith will win this, I think.

    Second post of this thread I went for Cam Smith and Corey Conners as the outside bet

    It will be difficult but I think Smith can overturn the 3 strokes against the World number 1

    Also think Conners will be placed in top 4/5

    Just need Bob to make a few birdies ��

    Incidentally you can watch all shots from your favourite player on the official masters website.
    I watched Bob and think he’s been a bit unlucky to be 6 over.

    Scheffler is my pre tournament main bet, for a good lift, but I think he will bottle it. Iíve also got in-play bets on Smith and Im, so if one of the three wins, Iím going to be ahead. I really can't see anyone else in the frame, but Iíve said that before.

    Scheffler bottles it on his first drive. Smith has a great drive and great second. 2 shot swing on the cards. Itís going to be a great tussle.

    Now that Wood's round and interview are out the way, the coverage can focus on what matters. Or is it just me that gets the dry boak at the fawning sychophancy, particularly from Ewen Murray?

    Was set to be a straight shootout between Scheffler and Smith and after just 3 holes is already shaping up to be a brilliant battle.

    Ewen was a few years above me at school. One of these annoying arrogant jambo types. Some golfer though.

    Woods is arguably the greatest golfer that ever lived. He's also the most well known sports person in the world, certainly in the golfing world.

    At the age of 46, he just managed to play 72 highly competent holes in the Masters after 18 months out injured. despite being in considerable pain.

    He is loved by the crowds more than any other golfer and the reception he received as he left the course was as rapturous as it was for the eventual winner.

    Acknowledging all that is not sychophancy.

    In addition, I saw all the golf that really mattered from Day 1. I missed nothing that mattered because of Woods or anyone else.

    Why do the vast majority of professional golfers lean on their putters, sometimes pointing the toe into the grass when retrieving their ball from the hole?
    They have to know there will be an indentation for the next one to come along.

    This from the golf channel.....
    "Players should not lean on their putters when on the putting green, particularly when removing the ball from the hole"

    I've played golf for donkeys years and never once leant on my putter. Is it just mass gamesmanship?

    Probably no need to be showing him sat eating his sandwiches rather than the golfers at the top of the leaderboards playing their shots though.
