Masters champion Willett likely to miss cut

Apr 08, 2017, 01:41

"I've shown myself many times after that I can contend and I truly feel I cannot only win one (major) but more than one".

Watson won this major in 2012 and 2014 but has struggled here the past three years. He's looking to complete a career grand slam with a Masters victory.

Indeed, the youngster looked well on course for a second consecutive green jacket previous year, having putted magnificently over the first three days of the tournament. "You get a little bit of outward pressure", Willett said.

Is rookie sensation Jon Rahm ready right now for a major win?

Danny Willett is hoping to slip under the radar once again as he bids to retain the U.S. Masters title following his dramatic and surprising victory at Augusta a year ago.

By the weekend, the forecast is for sunny skies, with high temperatures in the 70s.

THE 2017 Masters Tournament begins today - here are the 10 leading candidates to win the green jacket. We'll be commemorating Arnold Palmer in a very tasteful way with our coverage on Saturday.

While he has given a shot back, Hoffman remains in command on -7, giving him a four shot lead in the day's early play at Augusta.

This is a great week with so many similar rhythms throughout the week. It is definitely horses for courses round here; you get the same faces at the top of the leaderboard. "So I can't wait to play at the Masters and try to make the cut". It was a wide points-winning margin but it was a lot closer than that when you look back at it. We came in cold.

"If they go a bit flat, we're not going to be happy". Read live text commentary, analysis and social media on the BBC Sport website and the sport app. That should be easy. It's expected to get even more challenging as the day goes on, with gusts of 35-40 miles per hour in the forecast by early afternoon.

Johnson suffered a back injury in a "serious fall" in his rented accommodation on Wednesday afternoon after the cancellation of the traditional par-three contest due to bad weather. "I was busy with family life", Willett said, "and I didn't quite realize, in fairness, how hectic and how chaotic it was going to be". The second is that ceremonial first shot.

"We never did this modern-day prep, which I would strongly advised", Faldo said. It's an awesome moment. I only know about this stuff because some people tell me about it. If he knew how to hole putts from 10 feet, he could already be a threetime Masters champion. After taking a drop and a one-stroke penalty, his next shot was over the green. "It's nice to be back and we've had a few days of good work".

"I just need to keep working hard on my short game and get more confidence in there and if I can manage to do that, then I should be able to do that (win)".

Eventually, McIlroy will win a Green Jacket. The nature of the collapse from a player with calmness and composure far beyond his age highlighted that anything can happen in a golf tournament. Sergio Garcia has been playing well in Europe.

The world's No. 1-ranked player has won his last three starts. I was hoping Nick wouldn't take this name away from me, but he did. Hideki has the resume in the past at Augusta, he'll be a force. "He was up and moving around and definitely going in the right direction". His boarding school didn't have a television, so he got news of that year's victor from the newspaper.

Jordan Spieth brought his sense of humor with him to Augusta National. "The Masters is my dream tournament".

It was a shortened practice round for the golfers as storms and rain lashed Augusta ahead of the much-awaited 81st edition of the Masters. He's a fan of all Cleveland professional sports teams, the poor fellow. He is the author of three books and has contributed to three others, including the second edition of "Golf For Dummies", with Gary McCord.
