The start of the 2012 Masters is just hours away. Who is going to win? Can Rory hold on this year? Will Tiger dominate? Let’s take a look at 3 of the favorites.
1. Tiger Woods – The clear favorite to win. Even if he has been in a drought, his win a couple weeks ago was an impressive performance. The top 5 ranked players in the world (Tiger is ranked #6) have a combined 2 Majors! Tigers has always played well at Augusta, and with his game coming together, it’s hard to think he won’t shine this weekend.
2. Phil Mickelson – No matter how Phil is playing, you have to expect him to be in the mix. One thing a lot of these younger players don’t have is the experience of handling the pressure of the big stage. Phil and Tiger love it.
3. Rory McIlroy – The expectations have been high for Rory, but he just hasn’t lived up to them. Last year he blew a lead in the final round. He is a year wiser and has more experience playing in these conditions. His skill is not in question, it’s whether or not he can hold it together.
I feel these are the 3 players that have the best chance to win, what do you think? Make your predictions in the comments!
