The Masters
Thu Apr 10, 2014 6:07 pm
  • I wasn't sure if we had any golf fans in here but I love The Masters. I truly feel that HDTV was made for events like this. The weather was beautiful but nobody took advantage of that and went on a run, Bill Hass is in the lead after Round 1 at -4. The last two winners (Bubba Watson and Adam Scott) are both one back along with Oosthuizen. At this point the tournament is wide open with another 15 players at -1 or -2, including Washington's Fred Couples.

  • Masters is pure class and i love it. My boy Phil blew up yesterday hopefully he can get it turned around today. Always pulling for Freddy, somehow he always plays well at the Masters.

  • I love Golf and the Masters is fun in the final round for me..I watched Jack in 86 win it..Saw Tigers long putt sideways /down the slope/breaks into the hole to win it.. Was fun watching Arnold and old guys trying to play with their lifetime exceptions and some would do pretty good..This one I'm rooting for Seattle's own-Fred Couples

    Nice picks.

    And it's Spieth.

    Been following him since he was a junior golfer.

    Great kid.

  • Bubba opened up a nice lead with a 68 today and is up by three strokes going into the weekend. There's only 14 players under par right now including Fred Couples who shot another 71 and is T7 right now. Some notable names that didn't make the cut:

    Sergio Garcia
    Phil Mickelson
    Luke Donald
    Ernie Els
    Charl Schwartzel
    Graeme McDowell
    Zach Johnson
    Dustin Johnson
    Ange Cabrera

    Yup.

    Quite the opposite for me. He hasn't been relevant for years.

  • I wouldnt mind seeing Bubba win again. Although of late it seems closing a tournament has been rough for the leaders.

    Tiger may not be the player he was through the 2000's but I would hardly call somebody that won 5 of the 16 tournaments he entered last year non-relevant.

  • I love watching Tiger play golf, but his absence doesn't take away all that much for me. Masters Sunday is my favorite day of the year, and it isn't close. The back nine of the Masters is the most drama you will ever find in sports. So pumped for tomorrow. Love to see Freddy get it going early. I've got Fowler in the KJR thing. I've actually nailed the last two Masters winners. Freddy and Jimenez are probably my favorite golfers. I could go on and on. Would love to see Spieth pull it out. The only thing that could happen tomorrow that I wouldn't be really excited about is if EVERYBODY takes a dump down the stretch.

  • I'll never understand what it is about Tiger Woods that makes golf more watchable than anyone else. There are lots of great, entertaining golfers out there that aren't complete douche bags.

    Because he was one of the greatest golfers of all time. And he made the game look young and exciting.

    Lot of good young golfers, but none have the charisma or talent.

    This. That he won 5 some-odd tournaments is irrelevant too, because the tournaments he won were mostly irrelevant as well. I just don't find him entertaining, and when he's playing the overage is all Tiger all the time = BORING.

    The "All Tiger all the time" aspect also detracts from my golf viewing experience. I get that he is probably the greatest golfer who ever lived, but that doesn't mean I only want to watch him play.

  • Still, at least for now, you need to watch every shot Tiger takes. There is still a much higher chance of something spectacular happening than any other shot you broadcast. When they follow him online in the featured group in the majors and all you see is every shot an it follows him up and down the course and it doesn't show anybody else, I can get a little bored with that, but if half of the tv coverage is only on Tiger, and it shows the highlights and important shots of others, I am perfectly fine with that. I want to see every single shot he takes. It was compelling when he was great, and it is almost equally as compelling to watch him struggle.
