Preview of Next Issue

The PGA Tour and the European Tour both have the same tournament listed on their schedule for this week and I'm sure you all know why. The first major of the 2004 season, The Masters, is being held this week at Augusta National in Georgia. As always, only the best players in the world will be competing to win the Green Jacket. The field of 103 includes 43 overseas players and 30 previous Masters winners, including Mike Weir returns to defend his title. Just for a bit of fun, here are my top 10 picks for the Masters in no particular order.

Tiger Woods - who could leave him out
Vijay Singh - wants Tiger's #1 spot
Phil Mickelson - always thereabouts
Davis Love III - having a good year, due for a win
Scott Verplank - couple of recent near misses
Padraig Harrington - never gives up
Stuart Appleby - solid player
John Daly - back in form and motivated
Mike Weir - one successful title defence already this year
Adam Scott - young challenger, in form

Personally, I'd love to see Jack Nicklaus win again, unlikely as that might seem.

Neither the LPGA Tour nor the Champions Tour have an event scheduled for this week which isn't really surprising as they probably want to watch The Masters along with the rest of us.
