It’s the best week of the golf year for many fans…except for the

fact that it’s not the middle of April and the NCAA Tournament

didn’t just end. For all of our lives, The Masters has been played

in mid-April, most often the weekend after March Madness

reached its conclusion.

The fact that I’ll be watching the final round at the same time as

my 6-2 Green Bay Packers play host to Jacksonville…it’s just

plain old weird. But that’s 2020 and sports life in the times of

COVID.

I’m going to make a few bold predictions about what we’ll see this

weekend:

1. The winning score will be in the single digits. If I were to pick

a number now, -8 sounds about right.

2. A player in the “elite” category will win.

3. Tiger Woods will miss the cut…his game just isn’t sharp.

4. Speaking of players who haven’t been sharp, Jordan Spieth

will be in the top-10 going into Sunday. His course history is

just too good to ignore. But can he stay there for my bet

below?

Hopefully this is the last time in our lives The Masters isn’t played

at its usual time. But hey, it’s better than no Masters at all!

Enjoy the weekend and here’s to a profitable one for all!

Once again the rules for our challenge:

Each week, Harry, Parlay Kid, Producer Michael and I will get a

simulated $200 to bet…$100 on golfers to win that week’s


tournament and another $100 to be spread amongst top-5, top-

10, top-20, and other prop bets. We’ll track the progress to see

who does the best and whether we can produce positive ROIs.
