Why not. He is #1 in the world, just beat Phil head's up, and Augusta is his dream course.

Of course I would never take him at 7-2. That's ridiculous.

Yeah. I was thinking of that one too. It's good value when you compare him to Woods, Singh, Manboobs, and Els.

Yeah, he called up Tiger and Woods stopped by Parnevik's garage and picked 'em up on his way...

I'm picking Goosen to win, BTW.

Golf: Masters ball is still a possibility for the future

By Peter Hutcheon
[email protected]
04 April 2005

Hootie Johnson has had enough.

After several years of lengthening the Augusta National Course it will stay at 7,290 yards.

But if technology continues to increase the distance players hit their drives, he will introduce a special Masters ball for the tournament in the future.

And the plan has met with the approval of Jack Nichlaus who has been a long-time campaigner for restrictions to be placed on the golf ball.

"The Augusta National is just about the only place that's powerful enough to take that position, to say, `There's the golf ball, and you play it,'" he says.

"Definitely development of the ball has had as much of an impact on the game as the development of clubs and it's an area of the game which needs looked at."

A Masters ball with identical specifications for every player has been designed and although it won't be deployed this year, the threat now exists.

Johnson says if driving distances keep increasing making the course shrink, the committee will introduce it.

"The Augusta National will do what is necessary to protect the integrity of our golf course and the heritage of our tournament," he said.

Since last year's tournament the club have not altered the course save for re-grassing on the fourth and 15 greens.

Nichlaus is set to miss this year's tournament because of a recent family bereavement.

And another former champion, Seve Ballesteros, has bowed out because of a persistent knee injury but does plan to return to competitive golf later in the season.

The Master committee expect nine former champions who have been invited to play, to turn them down - a list which includes Arnold Palmer who bade an emotional farewell to the tournament last year.

Colin Montgomerie's late invitation did not materialise, to no-one's surprise. Recent good performances did not produce the necessary tournament victory to take him back into the world's top 50.

I would love it if Jimenez won. The guy's got a great style, plus he loves cigars and espresso.

The Spaniards have a good history at Augusta. I'm looking for the tradition to continue, from someone not named Garcia.

Jimenez has been playing pretty well lately too. He's apparently getting some attention too - his odds were 100-1 yesterday.

I'm heading down to Augusta Friday morning to watch the weekend rounds with my college roommate who has patron badges. I went with another friend and saw the "Tiger Slam" in 2001. We sat about five feet behind the 12th tee box on Sunday during the final round. Augusta is about 5 times as beautiful as it looks on TV. If you get a chance, watch it on HDTV.
