Interesting comments from Butch tonight about BdC chances. Reckons he can't putt without his greens books, and he can't use them at Augusta. Also reckons huge drives won't cut it as you need to be in a particular part of the fairway to hit a particular part of the green to get the ball to feed down to the pin. Mght not be such an issue early on when its going to be wet but if the greens dry out over the weekend...

Might need to be in the right part of the fairway to hit the green with a 6/7 iron, or whatever the hole is "designed" to be attacked with. But when Bryson's gonna have wedges into most of these greens, which by all accounts are going to be softer and slower than 'normal', does position really matter as much? I'm not convinced.

or Butch might be a little outdated and not a Bryson fan (plenty of them about)

one way to find out :)

Wishful thinking from an old-timer I suspect. The 'right part of the fairway' is a different ball game when you're hitting sand wedge.

Yeah.. this.

Just not feeling the love for it...yet? The thought of a brute of a lad blasting through the holes just doesn‘t ... well it just doesn’t. And it is the one major other than the Open that every year I really look forward to - in fact in some ways I look forward to the Masters more than I do the Open. But not yet...

I understand that the greens have this new drying technology, so the club could dry them out pretty quick , to keep em quick 😀

Bombers don’t tend to smash the field here tbf.
Obviously Tiger has but his specialism has always been second shot and short game.
having said that, I do think Bryson will win this week because his advantage will be too great at a softer Augusta.
Then, come April they’ll probably force them all to use the same ball which will reduce the scoring and make Bryson take the same lines as the others.

Not sure balls will be regulated and he'll be free to play whichever make he likes. Should they get crowds back in though it may be an issue if there people in the areas he's looking to hit this week. Can't see anyway Augusta will clear those areas for him to bomb into

Got my Masters App and VPN all setup and ready to go, My Group is populated with my favourite players and I'm watching all the player interviews and all the far-too-twee promo videos.

Starting to feel a bit of the magic again now and looking forward to them teeing off tomorrow. :)
what vpn you using ? How quick will it update with the shots? It was pretty slow last year

Featured groups coverage starts at 12:30. Remember that Sky only get what the host broadcaster (NBC in this case) transmit.
Ha ha, its actually another nonsense Augusta restriction . It's not that long ago you woudnt even see the leaders tee off. Coverage would pick up around the 5th hole.
