    Hello, friends.

    A tradition unlike any other -- though no Eldrick. Phil coming off an injury two weeks ago.

    Been an odd year it seems on tour so far.

    Adam Scott has a great shot at defending.

    Though perhaps it could be time for the real passing of the torch from the Tiger/Phil era. Rory to make amends for the debacle in 2011? I really like Jordan Spieth's game/demeanor and would like to see him win. Or some unknown to charge onto the scene ala Zach Johnson, who is coming off a T6 at San Antonio and has had a solid season.

    Rory shot a quiet 65 on Sunday in Houston. He's ready.

    Spieth's game has been a bit of a mess the last two weeks. Not happening.

    I would definitely bet on a first time major winner though. But Phil will be in contention. He always is in the hunt there.

    No Tiger? OUT! [/75%ofAmerica]

    If Rory or Spieth get off to a strong start, I'm 100% plugged in.

    I know Jason Day has been hurt, but I still like his chances.
    Zach Johnson knows what he's doing at Augusta. So does Angel Cabrera.

    Can't pick Matt Kuchar after watching him fall apart down the stretch on Sunday. Keegan Bradley hasn't been playing great, but he's going to win The Masters one of these years.

    And I always like a guy who can putt as well as Steve Stricker.

    Still, picking a winner ANY week is as challenging as it's ever been with all the parity in golf right now.

    Who's a Tiger fanboy to pull for now? I'm probably going for someone like Westwood or any oldie not named Phil. Not very high on Rory yet, even though he's playing better than last year. The 65 in Houston seems to follow a pattern the past year-plus when he puts together his best rounds when he's already basically out of contention.

    Unfortunately, being in South Africa at the moment, I don't think I'll see a second of coverage.

    Ditto all that.

    Won't budge from the couch all weekend. Bring on the schmaltz, Jimmy Nantz, I can take it.

    I'm thinking Stenson has to be the favorite. He's got the look and game of a major championship winner, just a matter of time.
    Would love to see Zach win another green jacket.
