Who will win the Masters? Here's your answer...
With rain pouring down at Augusta, like it is here in northeast Florida, I’m going to take this opportunity to tell you who is going to win the Masters. Everybody’s talking about Phil Mickelson, who won’t win it because he has the game but not the nerve. Ernie Els has had his chances; you only get those so often at Augusta. Tiger Woods, maybe. Retief Goosen is just not playing as well as he is capable of right now, which even he will tell you.
The guy everybody seems to be forgetting is the one who should be on everyone’s mind: Vijay Singh. The Raging Fijan (sorry, I just can’t come up with a good nickname that rhymes with “Fijan” – any ideas?) has the length off the tee and the touch around the greens. He’s smart about course management and he doesn’t get weak in the knees when the pressure’s on. He’s coming off a fantastic year and just starting to get it together. Vijay will win this week, or next, whenever they finish. I’ll hedge my bets slightly here by saying if Singh doesn’t win, a virtual unknown will.
Others to look for: Adam Scott and Padraig Harrington.
