Tiger Woods-- It's almost too perfect. Tiger has regained the world's number one ranking after his third win of the season at the API, and he is the prohibitive favorite this week. I think he at least has to be on your roster this week and I will probably end up using him in all four rounds.


Rory McIlroy- I think this spot is a real toss-up between McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.  Mickelson has a wonderful history at Augusta, but McIlroy looked good last week at the VTO where he finished in second place. I reserve the right to change to Mickelson, but for now I'm going with youth and form.




Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Brandt Snedeker





Justin Rose-- He is coming into this week red hot with three consecutive top 10s on the TOUR. His recent history at Augusta is solid, with a T11 in '11 and a T8 last year.


Keegan Bradley-- He is also red hot right now with a streak of four consecutive top 10 finishes on the TOUR. Last year was his first start at the Masters and he finished in a tie for 27th place.


Jim Furyk-- I thought last week that if Furyk could have dropped any putts in his final round that he would have won the VTO. He has four top 10 results in 16 starts here and he makes a nice dark horse this week.


Matt Kuchar-- This spot is the toughest to fill this week because there are at least a half a dozen players to choose from. Kuchar gets the nod off his T3 finish here last year and for some reason I can picture him wearing the green jacket after this week.




Louis Oosthuizen, Dustin Johnson, Luke Donald, Peter Hanson, K.J. Choi





Adam Scott-- It's hard to have a real good feel where his game is because he has played a very light schedule this season. He did look good at Doral, where he finished tied for third place, and his recent history at Augusta is very good with a T2 in '11 and a T8 last year.


Charl Schwartzel-- He came into to this season red hot off the off-season events and his only poor event in the season was at the Match Play where he lost in the first round. Schwartzel has only three starts at Augusta, but one of those was a championship in '11.




Rickie Fowler, Jason Day, Lee Westwood, Ian Poulter
