    That's like a special golf porn channel. All the Masters you could ever want, and more.

    It's Masters Eve and I'm excited. I can't wait to watch this tournament. I love everything about it.

    Easily my most favorite golf event to watch each year.

    The Masters is like Kryptonite for middle to upper class white people. It is pretentious, stuffy, horribly elitist, and we can't get enough of it.

    I'm not really following the Kryptonite comparison. For that analysis to be true wouldn't it mean that Superman "couldn't get enough of Kryptonite"?

    Either way I like the Masters. I guess it's elitist because all of the best golfers are there. I like that though.

    Yeah I didn't really understand the kryptonite analogy either, but as for elitist I think he was referring to Augusta National's membership policy.

    Oh, and in 2008 I'm taking Tiger over the field in every event. He's that much better than everybody else right now.

    Yeah I know, but he's kinda making it out as if their "elitist" membership policy is why we are drawn to watch the Masters. I'm pretty sure I don't say "Oh, I've got to watch the Masters. Augusta National doesn't have any women members!"

    As a Private club, Augusta National can have whomever they damn well please as membership.

    Augusta National being elitist has no bearing on my enjoyment of their tournament annually.

    This is easily my favorite golf tourney of the year.

    I'll go with what Joseph went with earlier: if I'm betting, I take the field. If I'm predicting, I take Tiger.

    I think he has zero chance of winning, and probably even cracking the Top 5, but I'm pulling for Brett Wetterich to make the Top 10 by the end of the weekend to make sure we see him in plenty of Masters to come.

    Dude's got the game, as long as he stays sober.

    I will root for Wetterich because he is a local guy but he may be one of the dumbest players on tour. I remember hearing an interview with him after he had the lead in day two of the masters and blew up trying to hit a miracle shot. He was asked if he would play that same way again and said something to the extent of "Yes thats how I play the game." You don't win majors playing that way. You win majors by limiting the damage when you get into trouble.
