The Masters is Here, What a Great Time of Year!

this years masters will probably be one of the most watched golf tournaments in the last several years. the golf channel and cbs are relishing in the fact that tiger woods will again be the favorite and that it will be his first major since one of the most exciting us opens ever. last weeks dramatic win at the arnold palmer invitational at bay hill has upped the anticipation even more (as if it needed it) leading into the week before the masters. the dream matchup for the networks will be a sunday finish between phil and tiger. phil is coming off of a win of his own at doral in the world golf championship. phil looks to be hitting the ball better and tiger is just about warmed up. the question is whether or not one of these dark horse young men will steal the spotlight and clinch a win underneath these two golf giants. names that come to mind are camilo villegas, nick watney, shaun o'hair, jeff ogilve, and padraig harrington to name a few. after all, padraig has one the last two majors he has played in not to mention that he is coming off of winning pga player of the year honors. however, he has had a lackluster start to '09. lots of exciting golf coming up for golf fans. i'll be watching.
