12/11/2020 | sport | golf | 64
Nineteen months since Tiger Woods won a fifth Green Jacket, how will Augusta look and what impact will an autumn Masters have?

I’m kind of expecting Herman Tilke and CVC partners to take over golf and create soulless new courses that are perfectly flat with all holes at right angles to each other but with longer fairways.

I'm very much looking forward to watching this year's Masters ...
However, I cannot fathom why the R&A couldn't have rescheduled this year's Open championship?. The PGA have managed to play all the majors
Shame, as an Open championship this time of year will have made for great TV

Even for a no-nonsense, hardy, all weather golfer that would be challenging.

Just imagine no patrons to aide a ball heading for trees that miraculously finds gaps for a clear shot to 11th green,not one day but two days in a row. Dont forget no cameras allowed at Augusta so nobody saw it ,so no evidence.

I agree with the premise of your point but it would be great to watch the worlds best play in 5 degrees, 40mph winds and horizontal rain along the coast somewhere.

I am sure that would resonate with the average golf fan more than bombing it 370yrds in florida and having a second shot from 1.5" "rough" to a carpet green.

Difficult to call a winner.

Rahm, Dustin and Fleetwood e/w would be my 3 picks.

Things that won't change:

- Big Bryce to take 6 years to get around the course... and probably win;

- McIlroy to be hyped up and set record scores in the final rounds, allowing him to finish joint 10th after shooting a 78 in the 1st;

- Bubba Watson to compete, despite having done nowt for the past year;

- Watching the very best golfers in the world die inside after their tee shot on the 12th.

No fans in the USA is probably the best thing ever for golf, however they still need to make the fairways narrower with some rough that actually punishes players who land in it and deal wth 'slow play' properly by introducing time lmits!

Shot clock and minimum walking speed should be mandatory.
Also, prohibit the caddie from saying anything or providing any assistance (other than the map of the green) once the ball is within 50 yards of the pin.

Really looking forward to the Masters as it will be different for obvious reasons and being patriotic I would love to see a British winner (really don't want DeChambeau to win) - we have Rosey, Poults, Casey, Fleetwood, Willet, Wallace, Hatton, Westwood, Fitzpatrick, Lyle, McDowell and McIlroy.
I'd like to see Ian Poulter win, who has been such a stalwart for the European Ryder Cup over the years.

So you can't be a true sports fan if you don't follow golf?
Rugby, football and motor racing not sports (all have international events this weekend)?

Just because you don't like something that doesn't make it any more or less worthy than your own interests.

It's no wonder golfers have a reputation for being elitist.

Going to be pretty different but it's the perfect weekend for golf and seeing Augusta in the autumn will be an interesting novelty. No whooping or "GET IN THE HOLE" morons either to spoil proceedings. Tricky to call a winner going in (my money is on Rahm) but it should be an excellent spectacle.

I'm assuming the TV coverage will include fake crowd noise as for football and cricket. I'm sure a sound man will have buttons for:
cheers/applause - for a big putt
whooping chants for a monster putt
gentle applause - for a good drive
"You're the man" for a very good drive
oohs - for a missed putt, or a shot into the water
General background chatter and (springtime) bird tweeting throughout.

Pity Augusta is still locked into the silly tradition of limiting the field unnecessarily and then, to make it worse, giving playing slots to has-beens who have no chance and no future rather than current players at the top of their game.
Probably the easiest Major to win as the competitive field is so small.

Agreed, I think if they should just give past Champions a 5 year exemption or something, I'd much rather watch a competitive player who could win, than someone who won it 20 / 30 years ago

The Masters always throws up the unexpected and this year should be no different. Two players who have won this tournament before, but have done zilch this season could surprise everyone. Outside bets...Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson. Spieth tends to get lucky breaks on the greens and Bubba has the distance and the course suits a leftie. One certainty is Rory bottling the first or second round.

Zero chance Spieth will win, even with a large chunk of luck.

If you're a nihilist it clearly doesn't matter what you do but if you view life as meaningful in any way then wasting vast amounts of time, money and worry in frustrating yourself whilst slowly hitting a very small ball not very far and into a slightly larger hole seems odd

A wonderful inland course, beautifully prepared and enhanced by the absence of raucous spectators and if the field can move 30 minutes quicker it will be good viewing for the entire four days . I think the difference between a respectable score and an excellent score will be on the putting green .There are many players who drive long and straight but few excellent putters.

This is very exciting! It’s a great day! Almost as great was when I got 7 chicken nuggets instead of 6 in my McDonald’s meal!! Come on B Keopka! Time to surpass the bottler Borey ( Mc I can’t handle the pressure of majors!). Value bets are Lowry, JDay and spieth.

That happened to me too once.

It was a wonderful moment in my life. Sometimes I feel the good Lord liked me a little bit special/ more than most.

I would imagine that an alien might find the preoccupation with the sport of golf bewildering

If you're a nihilist it clearly doesn't matter what you do but if you view life as meaningful in any way then wasting vast amounts of time, money and worry in frustrating yourself whilst slowly hitting a very small ball not very far and into a slightly larger hole seems odd

I enjoy the pros' mind games

As good as you are on the cricket pages James that is a very poor comment on these.

You are much better than that.

The Major' s are actually thrilling.

"DeChambeau may use that to his advantage by driving over the pines to the left of the dog-leg par-five 13th to reach the 14th fairway"

Why not make it out of bounds ? Doesn't it interfere with those playing on the next hole ?

Pity Augusta is still locked into the silly tradition of limiting the field unnecessarily and then, to make it worse, giving playing slots to has-beens who have no chance and no future rather than current players at the top of their game.
Probably the easiest Major to win as the competitive field is so small.

Sky sports claim full coverage of the masters .....is it me but why after a 3 hour delay and when live golf could be shown they keep going to the scoreboard , then the studios , then showing what happened before , hardly seen any live golf ...sky coverage is so poor

It means the bbc should get it’s act together and make it possible to view the leaderboard within the update screen. Or at least have the leaderboard posted regularly - it’s not on the current page. Pathetic bbc yet again failing to do the most simple thing.

And you can tell the 3, yes 3 people who are doing the updates (money well spent?) that it’s putt, not put.

Glad Mark Chapman finds himself so amusing - how does that guy hold down a job?
Jay Townsend - the one thing that made the BBC radio coverage worth listening to. Sadly missed.

Ridiculous decision by the organisers not to allow lift clean place today following the deluge earlier.

It was obvious there would be plenty of mud balls and it's arrogance on behalf of this backward committee to not allow such an obvious ruling for today's opening round.

The committee need to keep their hands off the sub-air system tonight as well to ensure the rest of the field complete their 1st round tomorrow under similar green conditions that we've seen today.
