Here we are back in Augusta again! We’re a little spoiled in that context, as it’s only five months since Dustin Johnson won The One in November. However, two years have passed since the last Masters in the traditional April setting, and two years have passed since the patrons are there, so play Bobby Jones at the most fascinating golf show on the planet. Is forgiven. Baby is back. Can you wait? We too.
Tiger won the Masters in April of last year in those noisy, carefree days of 2019. His terrible accident means he isn’t here this year. This is in the great man who rebuilds his health and completes yet another fairy tale comeback. 6th Master in 2022? Hey, we are allowed to dream. The winner of this is … well, the fields are crowded and there is a lot of cream on top.
DJs are a favorite because he aims to be the first man to hold the title since Tiger in 2002. Prior to that, it was Nick Faldo in 1990. Before him was Jack in 1966. This rarely happens. If someone can do it, a carefree South Carolina can do it.

New player champion Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, returned to the championship at the Texas Open last week after a four-year break on the tour. Brooks Koepka is a four-time major winner who was just picked by Tiger when he was last here in April. PGA champion Collin Morikawa. Major perennial bridesmaids Zander Schaufele, Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Tony Finau, Lee Westwood, Paul Casey. Rory? Sergio? Sergio! The resurrected Sergio! You can continue for a while, but what’s the point? Not many people in this area have no hope.
Here, it starts at 2:00 pm BST, which is interpreted as 9:00 am in Georgia. Make your own Pimento cheese sandwich, pour a long cold glass of iced tea and settle down. It’s going to be a long four days, but it’s gone in no time. The 85th edition of the Masters Tournament. At the beginning of April, I returned to where it belonged. It’s on!
