That's what I was thinking.

I'm Team A. Didn't like my draft position because I didn't want Rory, Spieth, or Watson. Was hoping to get 2 of the trio of Day/D Johnson/Stenson. Felt OK after adding Stenson but the value dropped off huge before my 3rd and 4th picks... Which then had me play safe at 5 and 6.

Team C had Watson and Fowler fall into their laps when Walker and Rose went before them. INot to mention Speith...I definitely wanted Jason Day but kinda wish I'd taken Fowler over Reed. I ended up going with the shortest odds there.

Ha. How does Rose go before Watson?

We had a pool where you got to pick 2 of the top 8, 3 of the next 25, and 4 of the rest if the field. 5 must make the cut to be eligible. Lowest 5 man score wins. I've got:

Speith
Bubba
Kuchar
Walker
Fowler
Blixt
Zach Johnson
Koepka
Palmer

I thought Blixt was undervalued by the bookmakers

Watson went 5th and Rose 9th

I was trying to say that Walker went before Watson and Rose went before Fowler

Man 9:45 can't get here fast enough. I think this is the most excited I've been for a Masters in a couple years.

I would have played a prop for Crenshaw to shoot 100+. It's very possible.

Very unlikely he can break 90 IMO.

I would say this is the least excited I have been since I started watching golf 20 years ago. I am having a hard time making myself care, and without Jerry's party on Saturday I doubt I would even end up watching any of it. Not sure why that is, but I have not been able to get into golf this year. I do hope Speith wins.

Every year I'm blown away at just how great masters.com is.

Tom Watson? Can he break 80 tomorrow?

Tom Watson is good. He plays like a 45year old.

Ben Crenshaw hits Driver about 215 yards and crooked and his ball striking is horrific.

Back to Drew, I actually think this is most interesting golf tournament I can ever recall.

Loads of story lines and lots of guys that could go wildly one way or the other.

golfing legacy on the line for like 19-20 guys and that's just the major faces of the game.

Crenshaw just makes 8 on 11 as he cant get his driver out far enough to reach fairway.

He should not be playing.

I give people a pass on #1 there. Terrible looking hole for a right hander.

If Bubba doesn't straighten it out he's going to wind up even with Josh Hamilton in the "Spectators Killed" column.

Rory not starting off well enough to offset his impending 77.

How about Watson with a -1.

Bubba was kinda all over the place, but still shot -1. That was with a very mediocre back 9. I think he's still fine.

Rose looked great today. Only thing I worry about for him is seldom does the opening day leaders hang on through the weekend.

Spieth shoots a 32 on the front 9. Not too shabby.

Incredible.

Tiger at -1 now. Looks (at least from shot tracker) that his driving and irons are better today.
