Message: Tiger has never been "it" in tight finishes. He always plods the back nine on Sunday if anyone is in range. Put it this way: if Tiger is reincarnated as a racehorse, it won't be Northerly. Tiger is not a fighting tiger, he's a gazelle/tiger.

Message: Ive got McIleroy at 33's and Immelman at 100's so cant complain. Have also got Quirios but must admit I took him after start of play at 25/1. Hope your right about Kim BB If I can get him up there with the other 3 after day two Ill be sitting pretty.
Message: Well what a start to the 2011 renewal of a timeless classic.
My pick Padraig went like a busted. Hopefully my savers can save me. Kaymer struggled around the course and might just be in a bit of a form lapse at present.
Early days...look for the leading score after Day 2 to be around the 9 under mark. So can't rule out anyone above the +1 mark in my opinion. Late guys today get out early tomorrow and can post a score and out some pressure on.
Big movers Day 2 for mine would be Paul Casey, Luke Donald and Anthony Kim

Message: Go Geoff Ogilvy you good thing, isn't it amazing how money can bring out the worst in you. I apologise to Phil Mickelson for death riding his penultimate putt at the 18th but I was on GO to win their group at $2.90.
When Ogilvie's swing is on song I reckon it's the best there has ever been, hope he can keep it going. It's awhile since I've backed a 100/1 winner.
Message: The Masters is one of my favorite sporting events of the year. I'm lucky enough to have been there as a spectator in 1987 - a long time ago but still etched firmly in my memory.
But for the life of me I think betting on golf is the nearest thing I know to Lotto. The only time I was silly enough to have a bet on the golf I backed Nick O'Hearn EW in the Aussie Open at a long price. They paid to fourth for the place, and naturally enough he finished 5th. Every one on the PGA tour has the ability to win on a given day, and I'm sure bookmakers wish there was a golf major every week. Good luck to anyone who has an interest, but I'm happy enough to watch just for the spectacle.
