Bamberger: Phil is driving it beautifully, it seems to me, and extremely long, which is critical at the Masters. He plays emotional golf now, and he rises to certain occasions. After he didn't win the Open at Pebble Beach, a lot of that emotion got zapped out of him for the rest of the year. He needs to be on campus at Augusta National to really get the juices flowing.
Van Sickle: I thought it was funny that Phil said after Doral, I just have to play more golf. He has never played more this early—almost everything on the West Coast, plus Asia, plus Doral. If he's not playing well, it's not because he's rusty.
Bamberger: Maybe at the end of the day it's getting harder for Phil to leave Amy and the kids and all the health issues, and go play winning golf. That said, I'd be surprised if Tiger and Phil don't finish in the top six. Maybe even one-two.
Van Sickle: Wow, boldly going where no man has gone before. Let's ask this: Who's going to win more green jackets, Phil or Tiger?
Shipnuck: If you spot Tiger one jacket and five years in age, that's tough to overcome. Tiger.
Bamberger: Tiger is such an old 35. I could see them both finishing with five.
Hack: I think Tiger gets six and Phil gets five. That's two more apiece.
Shipnuck: That's pretty bullish.
Van Sickle: And that's not allowing many for everyone else.
Hack: Well, it would help my cause if one of these guys wins this year.
