It’s the week we’ve all been waiting for, The Masters is finally here. We’ve been watching the Aussie’s form and tracking tour results but at the end of the day it all comes down to this, the first Major of the season. Here are TI’s picks to win the coveted green jacket in 2019...
Italian stallion Francesco Molinari has clearly been one of the best players on the PGA TOUR for a few years now and has a habit of performing in the big events. After winning The Open Championship last year, his first victory in a Major, he looks hungry as ever and has set this event as a goal. And rightfully so.
For pick number two TI has gone with a local boy. Rumour has it Jason Day is walking the fairways pain free and hitting it as good as ever. If the body holds up and gives him four days of stress free play I'm certain he will be banging the door down come Sunday. Without a doubt Day has his sights firmly set on becoming the second ever Aussie to wear the green jacket, and with the putter striking hot, he could be in with a chance.
If he can run top-10 with that foot injury from last year he can win it fit. It’s that simple. Especially with his new kicks!
This pick is a bit of a roughy but Bjerregaard aka Beer Garden has to be running high after competing in the semi-finals of the Dell Match Play tournament a couple of weeks ago. He bombs it and putts well, the perfect measure for golf at Augusta. He’ll definitely be a player to watch.
Rose’s record speaks for itself especially here at Augusta National. TI can't knock any part of his game at the moment and that’s a big deal coming into one of the biggest weeks on the golfing calendar. All reports are that his game is on-song and that he’s expected to well and truly be in the mix this weekend.
One win, two seconds, one third and a 9th in his last seven events. This bloke is red hot! I do worry about the putting at Augusta but with two inches of rain falling on Tuesday morning the greens aren't as quick as normal. This factor will help him big time.
