In two days, the best golfers in the world face off in Augusta, Georgia in the most prestigious golf tournament, called the Masters. People are saying that Tiger Woods will win it all, but I disagree. Okay, we can pretty much agree that Woods has been the best golfer in the past 15 years, but recently, Tiger hasn’t been roaring at the Masters, instead its been young Irish superstar Rory McIlroy. He hasn’t won in the past couple of years that he has attended the tournament, but through the first couple of rounds of the Masters, he has been sensational, but recently he hasn’t been himself. It started with his excuse of his tooth pain, then it was struggling to make putts, or even make the cuts on tournaments. Still I think that McIlroy will win because he plays so well through the first two rounds.
Tiger Woods has never been my favorite golfer, and he will never be. First of all, Tiger has struggled with the media, second of all Tiger throws his club and curses on the course, third of all, he has gotten into too many incandescence’s for me to like. For example him cheating on his wife, forget that, last year when Tiger struggled to make the cut at the Masters, he was fined. He just doesn’t have golfers etiquette compared to a guy like Phil Mickelson. Watch out for guys like Steve Stricker and Lee Westwood who are looking to get their first major.
In all, I think that Rory McIlroy will win, but watch out for some young guns, and some oldies. It will be one of the most exciting tournaments to watch!
