    Weather is dodgy today tomorrow and Thursday. Friday-Sunday very warm and dry.
    Ye Olde Chef predictions:
    Tiger makes cut.
    Rahm top 15
    DJ MC
    Rory Top 5
    Koepka finally wins a jacket.
    Truth be told, I would love to see Rory win one, but I think this old girl just has his number.
    Just like Arnold never won a PGA, Snead with the US Open, Phil with the US Open, Watson with PGA……sometimes it just doesn’t happen.

    I think the only question about this Masters is if that missed putt in Houston is still rattling around Scheffler's head. If not, he wins. If it is, then I have no idea who will.

    It's a fun debate now, who has the easier path to a career Grand Slam: Rory who just needs the Masters, or Spieth needing a PGA. One could argue for Rory in that the venue won't change, except I also think it's way in his head.

    Pencil in Spieth for his traditional top-5 finish.

    I looked up stats for year and Spieth has been very good in all aspects and is ready to break through.

    Rory is so damn honest, it could get in his head for a while.

    For Spieth to win anything again, he's going to have to flatten out the roller coaster his game has become.

    Saw Scheffler's wife is pregnant and due to deliver at the end of the month.

    He says he'll WD if the baby comes early. That is the only thing that makes him a risky pick, imo.

    And yes, that irks me that I don't know whether to pick him in the work Masters pool.

    He's Josh Allen. When he's on, it's incredible.

    When he's not, he's hitting it onto the clubhouse roof on a par-5 and taking a double.

    It's exciting, but it's not sustainable.

    If not Rory than Spieth would be fine.
