Golf’s Superbowl “The Masters” Begins Today
All eye's will be on Augusta Georgia starting today as the 2016 Masters golf tournament begins. This is the PGA and golf's Superbowl. Every player out on the course are looking for one thing which is winning the green jacket and the biggest major championship in golf.
The beautifully manicured Augusta national golf club is 18 holes of the most intense golf anyone could ever play. The course is a par 72 and takes every part of your skill and game plan to finish with a decent score. The golf course is hard enough just to play but add to the mix thousands of people on the course watching you and millions at home and you can see winnings is a monumental feet!.
The list of some of the greats who have won this tournament are staggering. Jack Nicklaus has won the Maters six times. Tigers Woods is the youngest player to ever win the Masters at the age of 21 years old and 104 days. Tiger has won the Masters four times while Phil Mickelson three times.
The first round is already underway. Last year's champion Jordan Spieth is already playing his first round. Tiger Woods is not playing in this year's tournament due to back issues.
The first and second rounds will be televised on ESPN starting at 2:00 p.m. Central time. The weekend coverage will be on CBS. Or you can watch all the coverage anytime at Masters.com.
My pick is Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson.
