Feels like the season for the very top guys will be over in July (if no Ryder cup).
Then it will just be a matter of collecting appearance fees.

Great career tho - if I could to be a top sportsman,  a golfer wins hands down.

There are obvious upsides, particularly the longer career, but the downsides surely outweigh them. The amount of time you would have to spend with other professional golfers, for a start. I know other sports seem to only produce superstars that are ****s too, Formula 1 being an obvious example, but they aren't always boring. Less likely to be racist too. Maybe I don't follow it enough, but aren't they all incredibly boring, with the very odd exception?
Plus, I would imagine one of the best parts of being a top sports star is the adulation. With golf that generally means you are going to be the hero of a marketing manager from Swindon and the lad down the pub who refers to his trousers as slacks.
I think playing in a World Cup for Ireland, even as an injury-time sub and a career that peaked in the LOI, would still be miles better than being Rory McIlroy.

When he was talking a few weeks ago he said it’s all about the money and titles on the US tour.
Amazing to think he still has money on his mind, Sunday Times had him with a wealth of €96 million last year.

Did a few small e/w bets on Hoffman, Snedeker, Watson & Li and a few bob on Spieth to win in the hope that Augusta will help him turn his form around
10 places being paid so looked for a bit of value pricewise. 
Lieshman, Fleetwood & Kuchar could do well

Rory is going to to need an excellent round today to have a chance - he will need a 67 or better.

Big Phil @48 went around in a 67 yesterday so maybe Rory has another 30 years to win this. 

He puts a lot of pressure on himself tho.

From Sporting Life

The last 13 players to slip on the green jacket have all been in the top 10 after the first round, but only twice in the last 33 years has the winner of the Masters held the lead after day one, so it's a tough prospect leading from the front at Augusta.

Current Masters top 10

  • -6 Brooks Koepka, Bryson Dechambeau
  • -5 Phil Mickelson
  • -4 Dustin Johnson, Ian Poulter
  • -3 Jon Rahm, Adam Scott, Kevin Kisner, Kiradech Aphibarnrat

Usually, then, you should only look at the names above as possible winners of The Masters, but given how bunched the field is this year it could well be the year that streak is broken.

A total of 20 players are within four shots of the lead so there are still plenty in with chances, but it's Koepka who is the new 9/2 tournament favourite after his first round exploits.

Big names out of contention

Given that players outside the top 15 have about a 12 percent chance of going on to win The Masters, there are a few big names who are already up against it.

+1 Rory McIlroy (22/1) , Sergio Garcia (150/1), Patrick Reed (250/1)

The odds are for illustration purposes only as there's little chance now, even for McIlroy, to get back into it as it'd take a monumental effort to overhaul so many players over the rest of the tournament.



Posted By: Zinedine Kilbane 110
Date Posted: 13 Apr 2019 at 1:46pm
No chance for Rory now. Too many good players ahead of him.

Only 2 shots separating the top 11. Some big names in that group so should be a brilliant day today. Hopefully good conditions so we see low scoring. 

Have a small bet on D Johnson but think there is 8/9 players in that group that could win it.

Never thought Tiger would come back from all those operations but he has proven a lot of people wrong.

Why was Mcilroy the favourite? He hasn't won a major for 5 long years.He hasn't even challenged for one in years.What players do in lower tier tournaments shouldn't really matter too much. Until he at least contends for one again it would make more sense if he was down among the 16/1 shots.

Betting on everything is stacked in their favour, it's kind of the point!

I have twenty quid on the middle-class white guy, I 'll get it back in the morning.


You better hope Finau or Woods doesn't win so

There's more than one black lad? I thought Woods was the token because he was good. You would think Augusta would have brought in a quota system!

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Longest gap between golf major wins :

  • Henry Cotton waited 11 years between wins in the 1937 and 1948 British Open Championship.
  • Julius Boros waited 11 years between winning the 1952 US Open and 1963 US Open, before becoming golf's oldest major winner at the 1968 PGA Championship.
  • Hale Irwin waited 11 years between winning his second US Open in 1979 and his final US Open in 1990 at Medinah.
  • Ben Crenshaw won two majors, 11 years apart, at the 1984 Masters and 1995 Masters.

Should have put a bet on him.

D Johnson has won 20 but only 1 major. He should have more.
Rory has won 15, 4 Majors.

Has to be up there with one of the best come back stories.
Winning the Masters over 3 decades. 

He’ll be big favourite for the other majors this year which are all in the next few months.
