    I'm looking at either Rory or Phil.

    I was thinking the same thing. As long as they can both keep their heads in the game and not let a small side track or a bad day knock them off, I think they'll be neck and neck with each other.

    what about adam scott?  he seems to play well at augusta and finished strong last year.  has been a quiet this year.  and let's be honest, you can't discount Stevie's local knowledge.

    My thoughts are that TW will get his 5th Jacket. It is extremely difficult to not go with RORs given his play of late.

    after last week and considering how he always plays at Augusta, hard to rule him out.

    That was what I was thinking that and a thousand dollar bet will get you alot of money if he wins

    Seems like you boy Adam Scott is priming up for something fierce this week! Not a bad choice if he keep putting like he has been. I wish I could get to Augusta this year with all the parity we have seen on Tour thus far.

    Hitchiking to Augusta a far-fetched idea?!

    he'll need that putting once he gets to augusta.  but he has the ball-striking and caddy to get the job done. 

    if i was going to hitch-hike, i couldn't think of a better place to go!

    Everyone seems to be going with the obvious/favored picks, Snedeker and Fowler being the exceptions. How about the dark horses out there?

    The stats certainly indicate that 50% of the time, the winner is someone who is unexpected. Who are the less obvious picks? My top dark horses:

    Hunter Mahan - displayed unbelievable putting at WGC Accenture

    Bubba Watson - his laid back temperament might ward off all the pressure

    Bill Haas - quiet determination knows how to get it done

    Nick Watney - just an all around likable guy, why not?

    you are right there is a good chance the winner will be someone we don't think of.  i'd like to see Bubba win, but just not sure he has the mental game yet.  it's hard for him to have 4 really good days in a row.  and when he starts to get off-line, he has trouble bringing it back quickly.  what about someone like Mark Wilson?  he has the consistency and short-game to get it done.

    Welcome to the forum. I like the way you are thinking. How many times has someone come out of nowhere and won the tournament?

    Valid Point!

    If we are doing the "Dark Horse" picks, I would go with Jason Day (top 5 in many of the majors in 2011, 2nd at Augusta).
