    Tougher than last year to pick a winner. Last year my top-5 didn't make it, but I said Sergio Garcia was 'scary'... and he ended-up winning.

    This year I'm going with Rickie Fowler, Paul Casey, Xander Schauffele, Fred Couples, and Francisco Molinari.

    I’ll play - either Speith or Mickleson should be wearing green.

    I'm always going against 'crowd-money'.

    The first day was relatively exciting with no awkward broadcast-blips.

    The biggest stories: Tony Finau in 2nd-place after dislocating his ankle on Wednesday. And Sergio Garcia shooting a 13 on a par-5, with a pond in front of it. Bad. I know the feeling though.

    Speith leading, looks shaky. He bogied 18 for no apparent reason.

    Pretty interesting Day 1. Enjoyed watching the afternoon on my DVR last night. Within minutes, they showed Sergio's catastrophic 15th hole. It was painful to watch.

    In a Masters pool, $10 for each entry. Several thousand dollars on the line. Have a variety & mixture of players. Most of whom are still in the hunt.

    After Saturday when things shake out, I'll post my $$$ picks. One of my entries would be in the money right now. Lots can change the next 2 days. Been in this pool for almost 10 years, have never won a thing yet.

    Friday was blip-free broadcastwise, with same level of minor drama.

    Saturday was amazing for shot-making. I wasn't sure how Reed was going to handle being in the lead, but he plowed-ahead unaffected by the moment. He's ahead by four shots.

    The weather was supposed to be awful, but it never got worse than an intermittent drizzle. That's probably why the scores improved for everybody.

    Coulda, shoulda, woulda - I certainly screwed up when I did not list my top three as that would have included Reed. He's a local kid.

    Didn't pick him. Reasoning: He only had one Top 10 in about a dozen major starts. Oh well.

    Tense finish. Congrats to Reed for staying on top, staving-off huge pressure from Fowler and Spieth.

    It was the battle of the 7'-to-11' recovery putts between Reed and Fowler, whereas Spieth stormed from nine shots back to tie the lead before inexplicably botching the 18th-hole again.

    Well done CBS, for not swooning over traditional Augusta this's and that's, which they probably were taking heat for lately.

    Congratz to our local barnyard billiards pro Patrick Reed for staying power
