He got to keep it going tomorrow. He has a tendency to blow up in the final round when in with a chance. Liable to throw in the odd Sherman

Got £5 e/w (free bet) on him @ 70/1.

After last year where he thought that he'd lost his card, only for a miscalculation meant that he kept it.
Last week they mistakenly thought he'd made the masters and now needs to win in Houston to qualify.
I reckon he's going to do it....
He'd better do it, or at the very least finish in the top 8.

so impressed with Poults and his attitude to be honest

screwed over last year with all that rubbish about "not" getting his card.. when he did

now screwed over by some official telling him he in the masters , then telling him oh wait your not (just before he teed off.. why not wait? he might have made it)

goes into this weekend having to win to make the masters
round 1.. +1.. miles off the lead... ready to pack and go home
round 2 an impressive -8 .. puts himself in contention
moving day round 3... -7 again to go in clubhouse leader and end up joint leader going into round 4

if he doesnt win it will be massive loss for the masters considering his desire to get there .. but either way he has showed just how good he actually still is.

COME ON POULTS

Special invite, probably because he's won a couple of recent tournaments and The Masters wants to get the Indian subcontinent watching..
It is after all, an invitation only event and they can invite whoever they like.

If the masters shouldn’t be a major then none of them should

Best event bar the open. Beautiful course and full of history

How Golf should be enjoyed
The Open 1860
US Open 1895
US PGA 1916
US Masters 1934

Nowhere close in standing to the other 3; smallest effective field and an invitational to boot. It might make dramatic TV viewing but it should not be a Major.

And that’s why it shouldn’t be a major - that and the tradition of past winners playing
Have to agree with this.
As much as it is a great spectacle and I love watching it, I just cant see how its a major tbh when its invite only.

Really hope Poulter makes it there too.

It’s not invite only tho. You qualify for it.. Top 50 go and if you finish Top 12 last year and so on you get in

Best system

Danny Willet will be pulling trees this year 😂
That’s why it’s so good. If willet gave up Golf now he could play it for life and we could get some nostalgia watching him

Same if woods got so badly injured he retired he could go back and just play the masters

You shouldn’t be entered if you can’t compete though, that’s my take on it anyway.
