Masters Starters for Yahoo! — 04.06-16

Overnight thunderstorms will blow through so fairways should be soft in the morning.

Sub-air will help the greens dry out and so will the sunshine throughout the day.

Looks like the wind increases as the day continues.

Go ugly early!

Group A: Phil Mickelson (Adam Scott — bench)

Group B: Zach Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama (Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy — bench)

Group C: Paul Casey (Charl Schwartzel — bench)

Last Week

I bet I wasn’t the only one cussing Spieth’s double and Mickelson’s bogey on the final hole Sunday! Speaking of cussing on Sunday, Lovemark caused a few as well. How does Stricker MC on a course with no rough and perfect greens? Rubbish.



This Week

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Phil Mickelson

Group 3: Paul Casey

Group 4: Chris Kirk


Total Birdies: 23


Group 1: If the weather favors the EARLY-LATE draw then I’m going to change this pick to Spieth or Fowler as they’re first off.

Group 2: Another difficult one but I’m going with the landlord at Augusta again this week. Easier to make the case for who NOT to pick from this group!

Group 3: Illness behind him and his stroke-play results have been on point. Softest group for me this week.

Group 4: Zagging when the rest will zig to the big names of Europe. Good ol’ Georgia boy will do just fine!
