Thought it was gonna be anyone's after scheffler's mini implosion but he's really turned it (back) on these last few holes and I'd be very surprised if he doesn't win from here. Some good players but not many regular winners in this chasing pack.
He'll be hard to topple but anything can happen around Augusta.

The mini meltdown was the first chink in his armour we've seen all season.

As long as DeChambeau doesn’t win though it's good with me.

Re your first point, so very true. Will never forget Jordan spieth handing it to Danny Willet and costing a 20 odd year old me £200 in the process. Scottie seems to be built different though but time will tell.

I love Sunday at The Masters so much.

Gone are the days when we'd only ever see the back 9 really at Augusta, we get to see the whole place now over the last few years.

I like Rory and I'd love him to complete all 4 majors, but I'm losing faith. Every time people talk him up, and every time he lets them down. He's still clearly one of the best players in the world, but it's the top two inches that need attention more than the mechanics.
It’s his game and his head both at 90%

How long until someone at the top of a major on Sunday has the balls to wear a red shirt?

Scheffler has finished in the top 10 in 8 of 9 tournaments this year. And won 3 out the last 4, the other he was runner up.

Think it's fair to say he's the worlds best right now.

That's an early to mid 2000s Tiger run.

Although if you're SkySports Golf channel, despite having the entire fucking year to ramble on about golf, they decide to hide the ACTUAL golf behind the red button! FFS
It's Augusta, it's Sunday, the best golfers in the world are on the course. SHOW THE FUCKING GOLF

Anyone playing any golf?

I've had 3 rounds lately, but we're still on winter rules, the weather has been so bad, it's still so soft everywhere. Balls plugging, causing delays with people looking for balls. Walked in for the first time ever last week, we were 3 hours 45 for 12 holes.

Shot 35 points week 1. 33 yesterday with 4 scratches 🤣, but painfully slow, Over 4 hours for a 3 ball.

It's probably got something to do with the archaic way Augusta issues broadcasting rules. It's a shame it won't start hitting them in the pocket because it's so behind the times. I'm all for traditions in golf, they make it what it is but a broadcasting rule is just daft.

Surprising how much golf they managed to fit in between the adverts. Thank god for the ROLEX hour!

How good was Scotty on that back nine
So impressed with Aberg all week too, brilliant

Yeah our gaff is still very moist in places. We're still on winter mats for tees too.
We have our 1st league match this coming Sunday, and it really ain't looking in great condition, but, with the winter we've had I'm sure they're doing everything they can.

I'm playing decent, scoring 30+ points most rounds, averaging 8 over gross (I get 6 off winter mats), looking forward to getting a bit of roll on the fairways again soon!

That’s painful!

37 points for me yesterday in a 4 Club challenge.
I took Driver/Rescue/6iron/PW.

Had an eagle on the 13th - A 370 yard par 4. Holed my 2nd shot with a PW from 117 yards
