It's that time again. With the Houston Open in the books, it is officially Masters Week! The Masters is one of the best sporting events of the year, and I always look forward to watching. This year has no shortage of compelling story lines, with a lot of players who are playing well at the right time. Among the favorites are: Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Rory McIlroy. With so many good golfers playing well, this Masters should be one for the ages. In any sane world, the biggest stories of the week would be: whether Rory will win the career grand slam this week, Phil potentially riding his good play this season to a fourth Green Jacket en route to becoming the oldest Masters winner, if Jordan Spieth is able to shake off a so-so start to his season, Justin Thomas winning two majors in a row, if Rose is able to win after two runner-up finishes in the last three years, and if Bubba Watson is able to win a third Green Jacket. However, the biggest story for the media, is of course, the return of their Messiah, Tiger Woods, to the Masters. Woods, despite not having won in over five years, is THE favorite to win the Masters over the golfers I mentioned above. Needless to say, there will be an undue amount of hype surrounding Woods this week. While it is a story line along with the others I referenced, the media of course, will be blowing it up much more than it actually deserves, and Woods will likely overshadow the other stories. If Tiger wins, it will be impossible to pay attention to any source of news, because Woods win will likely be broadcast everywhere for weeks on end. Despite the media fawning over Tiger, it should still be a great tournament. Personally, I would like to see Phil or Jordan Spieth win, but any of the guys I mentioned above winning would be great to see. I'll be hoping for some fireworks on the Back 9 Sunday. As Carolina Speed mentioned in the regular thread, with all of the hype surrounding the Masters favorites, it wouldn't be surprising to see somebody come out of nowhere to win. It should be a great tournament! If you need something to tide you over, I noticed that The Masters has uploaded the Final Round broadcasts in their entirety from the last 50 years to YouTube, if anybody is interested in watching them.
