    The Master Golf 2011 - Augusta National

    The masters 2011 is about to get underway, played on what is considered to be the number 1 golf course in the world with private members such as Bill gates and alike, who will win the coveted green jacket this year?


    Will Tiger woods jump ship and run off with a hottie from the crowd?

    Will Luke Donald turn his par 3 success into a major win in the US?

    I can't wait for the tournament to begin.....

    Strange bbc video here:

    Golf clubs are now light-sabers!!.

    Four days of watching The Masters....bliss, bring me another brewski please

    Think Graeme McDowell @ 40/1 looks a big price so each-way bet for me on him.

    45/1 @ William hills (yum-yum).
    Edited by: "WheresMeNuts" 7th Apr 2011

    Tiger Woods 12/1 each way bet looks great...
    Bookies are paying out up to finishing 6th on the each way bet
    Tiger has never finished lower than 6th in his career...

    Rory McIlroy each way @ 30/1

    Kaymer is my bet I think

    What I mean is he has never finished lower than 6th at the masters


    All the above is his masters record/stats & he's be out of the Top 6 on 6 occasions,but has not been out of the Top 6 in the last 6 years.I just think with tiger these days he can hit a 64 then the following day he can hit a 74, so to hot & cold for me this year.

    I do agree with your comments about his scores being up and down,
    thats for me what makes the bet interesting !!
    I've gone £10 ew.
    we shall see

    If he's only a couple of shots of the leader on the final day then i would like to be on him,because he will not freeze like most golfers do.

    That is very true, think it could be a new winner this year though, someone from outside the world top 20..... May place some cheeky little bets later.

    McIlroy takes the clubhouse lead with an awesome opening round of 65...

    Martin Kaymer with a disappointing 78

    Shows how much I know, I was looking at the odds for Rory earlier and they were great. Is anyone buying tickets for next year? You can apply for any day but if you get them you can only go to one day! Thinking of applying, once in a lifetime trip to watch this.

    On another note anyone going to the open this year? its right next to my old club

    I don't think the wee man's ready for a major,but you never know.

    I have not got my ticket yet, as unfortunately I moved away, but to see players on the course next to my old one would be great, think I have to go!!

    Rory McIlroy each way @ 30/1

    Tiger's on the move... I reckon - 6 by the end of day two

    I can't wait for the live BBC coverage over the next couple of days, streaming online sucks big time!! Watch yesterdays highlights properly, course seems in good nick, but can't seem to help thinking some of the fairway grass looks slightly long

    Cheers, I got a pretty good stream but there is nothing like watching it on a tv screen compared to my laptop!! Got rid of Sky sports as I never watched it much, wish i had it again now though!

    I put a tenner on him @10/1 (Wednesday night)

    Just put Money tiger at 3/1.

    I think Tiger along with my tenner are pretty much dead and buried now...

    So cmon Rors! If he shoots -2 today, it's over... however If anyone can catch him Angel can

    Exciting finish awaits... particularly the legendary back 9

    C'mon rory bring it home lad....

    Good luck Rory - it's yours to lose! Level par should be enough, but I sense a 65/66 from someone is going to pile the pressure on. Choi is dangerous and you can never write off Tiger !!!

    C'mon Donald and Fisher - lets make it a clean sweep and lock out the yanks !!!
