Van Sickle: Well, TV is certainly all that matters.
Garrity: Plus the 2nd has trouble off the tee. You remember the old line about the Delta ticket office being in the left trees there?
Bamberger: That's right. I'll offer number 10 for the same reason—I love any downhill finishing hole. You have to hit a draw if you're a righty, and that's harder to do under pressure. It's easy to hit a snapper, like Rory did last year. The second shot has to be so precise, and the chipping is difficult. Ten would set up beautifully as the finishing hole.
Van Sickle: What would be the worst finishing hole?
Anonymous Pro: None. They're all good.
Van Sickle: No Masters champion since Trevor Immelman has generated less buzz than Charl Schwartzel. Let's give the man his due.
Shipnuck: He has the great swing and the putter. He also has a lot of Retief Goosen in him, in that he seems unaffected by what's going on. I think he'll make a stout defense.
Garrity: I can't think of much to say about him. It's not how well you play, it's how compelling your backstory is. Until we know more about Charl, there's not enough for us to be as excited about him as we could.
Bamberger: You have to win over time—if you simply emerge at 5:30 on Sunday afternoon, it's too late to enter our imaginations. That's not his fault; that's reality.
