My brain has been taken over by martians: I have new interest in golf.

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
I like a lot of players. Have a mild bias for Oosthuizen. Maybe Dustin Johnson. Maybe Rose. I'll pick out about ten and then follow their trips to bunkers, etc.

@ossobuco,
I honestly think Tiger is going to win...

This is who I have on my team

A list...

Tiger, Rory, might change it to Phil...most likely will not...would take Brandt but I do not think he is healthy yet...

B list...

Stricker, Furyk, Rose, Donald...

Lots of moves I could make here...Kuchar, Westwood...etc...will have to think tonight...

C list...

Charl, Poulter...


I only have to start one of the 2 in A, and C...and 2 out of 4 in the B list...

@ossobuco,
Aha, my Rickie is doing well, sort of, finished today at -4. Now to continue this well. Of course he's not mine, but he's one of the guys I follow. (So is Day). Happy for Sergio.

@ossobuco,
All this talk about the chinese fourteen year old - there was also a different chinese fourteen year old at the 2012 US open, Andy Zhang.

@ossobuco,
Yes, nice day for Sergio!

This is who I took before yesterday morning...

Tiger, Phil

Furyk, Rose, Stricker, Kuchar

Charl, Westwood


Only one who struggled was Stricker...

I hear ya...That is pretty impressive the 14 year old shot +1...though...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
He's pretty sharp, choosing to use different clubs than other stronger players use, adapting a fix for his presently relatively unmuscular young body.

@ossobuco,
In no particular order -

Lee Westwood, Ryo Ishikawa, Justin Rose, GraemeMcDowell, Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler, Luke Donald, Dustin Johnson, Francesco Molinari, Hunter Mahan, Louis Oosthuizen, Rory McIlroy, Keegan Bradley, Jason Dufner, Jason Day.

I'll thin the watch list out as the days go by.

@ossobuco,
McDowell does not look like he is going to make the cut...

And sadly for Fowler, he just triple bogeyed and went from -3 to even...

Rose, Westwood, Dufner playing well...Jason Day is leading...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
I'm following it Spades - my list is getting shorter.

Presently reading the hyperbolic rendition of the day from the Guardian, almost caught up.

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
Ok,

my list:
Jason Day
Jason Dufner
added Angel Cabrera
added Fred Couples
Rory McIlroy
Lee Westwood
Rickie Fowler
Justin Rose
maybe Luke Donald
and maybe Dustin Johnson

Tiger's sharp, I wouldn't mind if he wins, and there are several others who rank better than some on my list and who of course could end up winning.
I rather like Dufner's and Cabrera's personalities, so I've a soft spot for them.

@ossobuco,
Yeah, Fred Couples is a nice surprise!

Guan made the cut also, even with a one stroke penalty...

@XXSpadeMasterXX,
He seems cool too, re his reaction to the penalty.

Anyone going to follow the Masters tournament?

Following might be an exaggeration for me, but I'll pay some attention for curiosity's sake.

Here's a link for the players via golf.com:http://www.golf.com/leaderboard/masters/yr/2014

@ossobuco,
Looking forward to it. Coverage about to start on a cable sports network here (prop. R. Murdoch). Hoping Rory breaks his Master's hoodoo.
