    Yeah, yeah. The Houston Open is still going on today, and someone might snag a late entry to Augusta ...

    Jason Day has to be the favorite, with the way he's playing. You can never discount Spieth here, but his bad days have been really bad this year, and he hasn't been able to scramble out of them like he did in the past. Can he avoid that this week?

    Who are the sneaky picks? Schwartzel and Oosthuizen seem to always hang around at Augusta. Justin Rose is good to lead a round or two and struggle on Sunday.

    I'm really curious to see how Bryson DeChambeau plays, since he's turning pro the second this thing is over. He showed well in the big Euro events earlier this year.

    Don't forget Adam Scott and Bubba.

    Yes to both. Can't forget Rory either. He may somehow be flying a little under the radar at a major.

    Best story would be if Vaughn Taylor somehow won this thing.

    Phil has scored very well this year -- 30 years after Jack in 1986. Can't count him out.

    Spieth has used up about a month's worth of great putts on the front nine in Houston. It's a very good thing to be putting well when Augusta rolls around.
  6. Not a Bubba fan in the least, but 60 Minutes had really good profile of him tonight.

    I know I could Google this and find out (hi, Ragu!) but what the fuck is going on with Phil's face? Did Elin get a hold of him?

    Fred Couples out with a bad back. He's played really well in Augusta since turning 50, so it's notable.

    One of my all-time faves, sorry to see he won't be there. He was the guy I loved rooting for as a kid, probably because I had his video game for the Sega 32x.
