Who will be in the winners circle at Magnolia Lane?  It's always difficult to predict golf but when you play the same course every year, you can start to see some trends.  The Masters Tournament is played at Augusta National Golf Club and the only thing more consistent than the pimento sandwiches is the course itself.  The course plays almost exactly the same, year in and out.  This could be the reason why multiple players have won more than once .  The player advantages at Augusta are being long off the tee and being able to work the ball, preferably from right to left.  This is why the lefties have been so strong in this major.  It's a bit easier to hold onto the club through the hitting zone and hit a fade than to hit a draw under pressure.  If you couple this with a lot of the holes going right to left, you have the perfect storm for a lefty that hits it high and likes to fade it.  I still like Bubba Watson and Mickelson, though he has not been playing the greatest of late.  Tiger is back, but with this much time off and i can think of many other courses that I'd rather recover from the chipping yips, so it is tough to pick him to win.  Jason Day has done very well at the majors and Augusta National.  I wouldn't be surprised to see him wearing the green jacket, but don't know if he has been sharp enough as of late to translate it into a win.  I predict the back nine on Sunday will be a close one between Rory and Jordan Speith.  They both like the big stage and I am going to give the the edge to Speith. He finished 2nd last year and has been so sharp lately.  I have been high on him for a while and predict that he will breakthrough this weekend, with his first of many major victories.
