Masters Tournament begins
You know spring is here when the Masters opens up play. It never gets old seeing the perfectly maintained golf course, the beautiful azaleas and dogwoods and then the excitement of the back nine on Sunday afternoon. Those that are fans of the excitement of the tournament have been disappointed the past few years as it seems like they schedule the Masters "and the U.S. Open breaks out." Although the up and down excitement is what makes the Masters special, I believe fans should not complain too much because majors are supposed to be difficult and any course setup that is a "birdie fest" on Sundays should not be hosting a major championship. Under normal circumstances it would be too late to make a pick but I am still going to go with the sure bet in Tiger winning for the first time since 2005.
