Masters Tournament Field Starting to Look Like an NFL Injury Report

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods

Anyone else other than me recall all the comments on Tiger Woods’s back before the surgery?  It was a bulging disc which would NOT require surgery?  Apparently they were wrong and Tiger is out next week following back surgery as announced yesterday.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson pulled an “oblique” muscle at the Valero Texas Open.  He’s already been practicing at Augusta so he will be there.  How much that injury influences his swing is the question.  I know, as most golfers do, that swinging in a manner as to avoid pain does not generally produce great shots.

Will Phil contend?  Let’s talk about making the cut first.

Hunter Mahan

Tiger is not the only one with back issues.  Hunter Mahan withdrew from the Arnold Palmer invitational with a sore back.  Will he be ready?  I wouldn’t be putting any money on him.

Jason Day

Who has been in contention seemingly for the last several years coming down the stretch at the Masters?  Jason Day.  Personally I’ve had a feeling that this will be his year.  But Day is fighting a thumb problem.  I sure hope the thumb does not bother him.  I plunked down $25 in Vegas on Day to win the Masters at 14/1 odds.  The odds were 30/1 at one point but I missed out on that one.

Rory McIlory

No, Rory McIlory is not injured but I feel compelled to comment about him.  He has been relatively quiet so far.  Arguably nobody else in the world as the arsenal and is more equipped to win the Masters than Rory.  Is this his year?  Maybe, but that would really screw up my Jason Day bet!
