Pity for him. Hopefully he counts as a non runner and i get my £40 back

Only backed the bloke 3 times ever. US open at pebble, whistling straights bunkergate and now this. He should put me on retainer to stay away

Went to the Masters a few years back, on a Saturday unfortunately not the final day.
Great experience and I'm not even a golf nut.

Good recovery by Rory to go on level

If only he could just play like that all the time rather than be too agreesive out the traps

Rahm needs to calm the heck down

Hoffman going backwards, now tied for the lead with Sergio on -4

I'd quite like to see Garcia win a major.

Garcia would be a very popular winner, well overdue a Major. Shame Westwood went backwards after being in contention. The two best players never to have won a Major.

Let's go Sergio.

Garcia and Rose the final pairing tomorrow, I'd be happy with either winning. It's a shame Sergio has such problems putting, I'm sure it's cost him a Major or two.

They both use the claw which I don't think a major has ever been won using

Fowler is looking good

Only 1 off the lead and playing consitsant

Rory could learn a thing or two from him.. not overly risky

Tbh Rory will never win the masters without a proper caddy talking him out of risk taking.. his caddy is just a fancy Trolley

Same applies to Lee Westwood. The putting has cost him over the years.

I think a lot if people will be rooting for Sergio today.

Advice please

I know nothing about golf but lumped on Garcia last week


I can cash out now and make a 300% profit

Or go with it for 700% profit

Are his chances of winning good?

Well it's a two horse race between him and Rose at the moment. Garcia has had problems with his short game when in this position so I don't personally think he will win. Don't take my word for it though...

Garcia has not won a major in seventy three attempts. Rose has, he also won the Olympic gold medal. He knows how to win and like Souly says, Garcia has problems putting especially approaching the finishing line.

He'd be a popular winner though...

Yep, always a bottle job in solo competition, sadly. Likeable guy but just difficult to fully respect him as a top player.

Wasn't here earlier to advise, but hope you cashed out chalks; a 300% profit is a 300% profit.

You should have taken the money, Garcia has some serious gardening to do on the thirteenth, his ball's buried in the bushes.

He's taking a penalty drop, another shot gone.
