CATEGORY 19: The 50 leaders on the Official World Golf Ranking published during the week prior to the current Masters Tournament

Jeunghun Wang (19)

It was exciting to see players like Hideto Tanihara get in to the field with his performance at the Match Play. Also Russell Henley getting in with his “W” in Houston on Sunday was an awesome story.

There is also always a great story or two of a past champion finding his way onto the leader board early in the week giving everyone hope and a great story.  We think Fred Couples we see it happen again.

Also they give out Waterford Crystal for doing amazing things.  Make an eagle, double eagle, hole in one, leader for the day you take home a gift.  A pretty awesome way to remember the experience.  

With all of the changes that have been made to the course picking a winner from this can be a challenge. Honestly there are only a handful of players who really have a great chance of winning.

Dads Say So that if you told us to choose between Dustin, Jordan and Rory vs the field we think were going to take the 3 players to win. Jordan hasn’t finished worse than second in the last three years. Dustin is playing golf better than anyone on the planet right now. With a win Rory completes the career grand slam, something he so desperately wants. Here’s to looking forward to an amazingly exciting week at Augusta National.
