    This one's my favorite norm. http://yfrog.com/h4xi7gj
    I just LOVE stuff like this. Imagine just flipping through one of these from a tour player? They all probably have one of these for each and every course they play.

    oh yeah they do...but even then, the caddies go out and look at each hole anyway...back in 09 on sunday, i was walking by the 14th green and Fanny Sunesson was walking the course and making notes for henrik stensen...a caddies job is never done :)
    I would give anything to caddy for those guys. I have 7 years caddying experience and I'm a great motivator for whoever I caddy for.

    Wait, you were at Augusta in 09 norm? I've only been at Augusta in my dreams.

    That's so cool. I hope I get there one day. I could die a happy man after walking the grounds of that place.

    #13 Azelea - That's my shit right there

    Ever read the book "The Making of The Masters"? Read it a few years back. It's basically the untold story of the history of Augusta.

    yeah especially if you land to the right of the pin like in that pic...i think it took me 3 putts just to get to the hole...and amateurs are allowed to chip on the green but i was too afraid to try :lol:

    Anyone doing a little gambling on the masters, heres who I took

    Dustin Johnson was 25-1 when I placed the bet now going off 20-1
    Hunter Mahan 25-1
    YE Yang 80-1

    I'd pass on # 1, 3 masters appearances 3 missed cuts

    Tomorrow at 6 (3PM for you norm) on ESPN they're reliving Jack at the '86 Masters. It's been 25 years since the Golden Bear captured his 6th and final jacket. Set those DVRs!

    thanks ff i'll set the tivo tonight...that's what got me hooked on the masters



    ian poulter doesn't have a lot of confidence in tiger

    "I don't think he'll finish in the top 5," Poulter said, citing Woods' play at the World Golf Championships at Doral four weeks ago.

    "The shots he was hitting at Doral, they were very inconsistent," Poulter said. "You can't afford to hit shots like that on this golf course and get away with it. I don't think you want to rely on your short game that much around this place."

    of course, this is the type of comment that would really piss tiger off and could propel him to win :lol:

    No problem, I am sure the chances are about the same as the mega millions but worth a shot

    One guy who knew how to win beat two guys who knew how to lose.

    Sobel says Casey's the guy. Not Phil. Not Lee.

    And I guess we can scratch off #6 on this list (Mr. Luke Donald) since he won the par-3 contest today.
