1. Is this the best sporting event on the calendar, year after year?
In my opinion, yes. Beautiful venue, spring, the players are playing for more than money, they are playing for membership in the most exclusive club in golf and possibly all of sports.
2. Greatest Masters ever?
1986 Jack Nicklaus wins his 6th green jacket.
1997 Tiger Woods wins by 12 strokes.
2004(?) Phil Mickelson wins his first major on 18 and gets 3 inches of air in jubilation.
3. Who do you WANT to win, and why?
I like a guy who has paid his dues, had a great career, and would see this as a cornerstone to same. Names that come to mind are Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia, Ernie Els, and Ian Poulter (gosh did I just name 4 Europeans?)
Who will win?
Adam Scott repeats. Horse for the course, the monkey's off his back, and he is entering his prime.
