2012 Masters Tournament Part 3: Predictions

Well it's finally here! The Masters tees off this morning and will be going on throughout the entire day.  ESPN will start their coverage at 3pm through 7pm EST.

Beautiful course, I can see why they don't let women become members - HEYOOO!
I am not going to pull any punches with this one or drag this post out any longer than needed!

Here are my top 5 favorites to put on this year's green jacket:
  1. Tiger Woods - he's back in the win column and of course has won this thing 4 times previously.
  2. Phil Mickelson - "Lefty" has been super consistent thus far and a past 2 time champion as well.
  3. Rory McIlroy - after last year's meltdown, look for the "kid" to be right there Sunday afternoon again.
  4. Luke Donald - taking over the world's #1 ranking recently, he's ready to take his 1st major.
  5. Hunter Mahan - I've mentioned him a couple times recently as he's the only repeat winner this season.
Hide ya kids, hide ya wife...
Dark Horses:
  1. Rickie Fowler - I've always been a huge fan of his, let's see if he can rise above just being "on the verge" to actually competing in the top 5-10.  Think Sergio 10 years ago. He's awesome on Twitter too.
  2. Sergio Garcia - HAHA! He's gotta win a major sometime right?
  3. Charles Howell III - the guy is just so darn skinny and his nickname is "Chucky Three Sticks," that's awesome.
Not going to win/has no chance:
  1. Charl Schwartzel - if he repeats, I'm going to be sick.
  2. Bubba Watson - only because Mr. Powers is in love with him.
  3. Matt Kuchar - Georgia Tech sucks.
There ya have it folks, of course with there being almost 100 golfers out there, I am most certain to be wrong about this whole thing.  But that makes golf so fun, you just never know who's going to play well.

Enjoy it Bottom Dwellers!
