"The player with the most Masters victories is Jack Nicklaus, who won six times between 1963 and 1986. Arnold Palmer and Tiger Woods have each won four, and Jimmy Demaret, Gary Player, Sam Snead, Nick Faldo, and Phil Mickelson have three titles to their name."

Looking forward to the first major of the year!

    Long range forecast is looking excellent (for what it is worth at this point). Maybe rain Saturday, but beautiful every other day.

    Let's get this party started......

    I hope you’re right. I’m seeing thunderstorms on the forecast I’m looking at.

    100% agree. they need to open to top 75 in OWGR not otherwise exempt (from prior WEEK). AND runner up in the mid-am. AND the winner of the PGA teachers champ. Weakkkkkkkkkkkk field, lol.

    I thought it was really interesting. We were talking on here during the first opposite field event (Puerto Rico maybe). The winner of that event doesn’t get in, but the Asia-Pacific amateur runner up does? (Apologies in advance if I don’t have the exact details correct, going off a very shaky memory).

    I posted a longer reply in the Jim Furyk and the Masters thread. But you are right, we have all these folks in the Masters field with ZERO chance and here we have Furyk, hot as a pistol, RC captain, and HE WON'T GET IN? C'mon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's long been documented in the past with Greg Norman and Ernie Els as well.
    As I said in the other thread, so much about ANGC has opened up .... membership, Drive Chip Putt, ladies event etc etc
    Everything is going in the right direction except their strength of field. That is POOR management in my opinion

    Gmac should get in for sure. Opposite field event on PGA tour is a much stronger field than some of the events they let winners in from. The World Golf rankings has finally figured this out and weaker fields should be getting less points going forward. There was a great example is a thread somewhere showing a winner at some lowly event getting more points than a 5th at a tour event .. it was nuts

    I count a minimum of12 players with a less than zero chance. Add 1 for winner this week and we have a field of 75
    That's less than half the size of the other majors
    Time to change old boys club! You've over done the exclusivity part

    Does GMac get in? I went back and looked at the other thread, it was Puerto Rico, opposite of Mexico (easy to get swept under the rug after that fiasco). BladeHunter had asked about a Masters exemption for that tournament and the answer was no.

    I was just thinking about the masters and was going to start a thread about a question I had but, decide to just post here instead. I was wondering, of the past champions that are planning on playing this year which is their right and I will not tell them they can't. Who probably shouldn't, and should just respectfully move on?

    You either play or way in or you don't.
    Simple. That's it.

    Relying on an exemption shouldn't really be in the picture.

    I have a feeling Fowler will overcome the odds and win this thing. Else, I'd love to see Tiger win, or YJS, if only for the entertainment value of the more awkward than usual jacket ceremony.

    This is Augusta National. Logical to the hoi poloi isn't really a concern.
    If you want in, win the right tournaments. If you're not good enough to do that, you just don't belong.

    think they require the tournament to give full "points" ... pr was only 300 fedex pts ... i'm assuming they mean fedex points, but fred and i haven't talked recently ...
