It is Sunny and 65 without a cloud in the sky. The grass is an amazing shade of green and the flowers are blooming everywhere. You can feel the electricity in the air at Augusta National Golf Club because it is Masters week.
As I wander around the course today, there is a different feel to the event than in the past. It may just be my imagination but it seems like there are more people here today on a Tuesday than I have seen in the last 5 years. The players are still out on 16 during the practice round trying to skip the ball across the pond and closest to the hole but the crowds are much more vocal and having more fun. I could actually hear them roar from the clubhouse. It sounds like a Sunday afternoon at Augusta.
My prediction? I have no idea and I am the first to admit that I am terrible at predicting tournament winners.
But if I had to pick a winner. It is just a sense, but I have a feeling this year's Masters could be a fun and wide open affair and the winner will be the fans.
It is Masters week and the golf season has truly arrived!
