The PGA Masters Tournament is almost here and we couldn’t be more excited! This weekend two of our pros will be heading to Augusta National Golf Course to watch approximately 100 golfers compete. Be sure to check our social media for photos and updates from the Tournament!
We asked our Lincoln City Golf Pros who to look out for this year and here are their responses:
Who do you see winning or making a superb play at the Masters?
With two little ones at home and another on the way, I honestly don’t get to watch or follow a lot of golf. However, I do know Augusta National is very unique and course knowledge seems to play a bigger role than pure skill. That is why you see old timers continue to compete well and veterans rule the leader board on Sunday while rookies start hot but disappear quickly. I’d just watch out for those with years of experience at Augusta.
This is my favorite tournament of the year and I think that Matt Kuchar or Tiger Woods will end up winning it this year.
It seems that down the stretch the guys who hang in to the end are the players who have experience playing Augusta. Vijay Singh is a past champion, has experience with the course and is playing well this year. I like Justin Rose’s chances and also Rory McIlroy who was in the final group last year.
I feel this is the year for Rory McIlroy to finally win his first Masters. He has been playing quite a bit in the U.S. and has been playing very well. Justin Rose (2 runner-up finishes) and Rickie Fowler will be in the hunt. Look for Tiger and Phil to post a top 12 finish.
Tiger is my pick for the Masters. I think we may also see Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and I hope Rickie Fowler all making a run for it. If Tiger leads it with all of those guys chasing, it will be a lot of fun to watch.
Comment below who you think is going to go far at the Masters!
