Agree about Sky, I've paid it almost no attention this year.

Stenson has played some sensational golf today.

Killed golf? Really?

Sky have had every major tournament and the Ryder cup bar the open for years! How have they killed golf

Anyway, it's been a hell of final round between mickleson and stenson, hope stenson keeps his bottle

The breaks do my head in and with them going to breaks regularly they don't show as many of the lesser known players.

I know they've had all the others for ages but the Open was always a nice break and the BBC used to do it pretty well.

I've been watching a stream with no sound for the last hour. Seems ridiculous that the Open isn't free to view.

Stetson should see this out 2 shot lead on the 18th.

Whilst I do agree the breaks are annoying and yes totally agree that the open on the bbc, free to air is how it should be....to say sky have killed golf is a bit silly

In fact if iirc when it was on the Bbc the coverage didn't start till late in the day, certainly on the first two days, where as sky have had it all

I didn't mean literally

They've just made it difficult for the part time arm chair golfer such as myself.

BBC golf coverage was pretty good imo.

I did similar on the 18th green the other day

2nd shot - A beautiful second into the green (par 4), took a big bounce and ended up at the back of the green on an awkward downhill lie.

3rd shot - Fatted my chip onto the green about 40ft away from the hole

4th shot - decent long putt, knocked it about 6ft past the hole

5th shot - knocked it about 6ft past the hole again

6th shot - knocked it about 6ft past the hole AGAIN

7th shot - left if short

8th shot - Tapped in (5 puts )

I'd played well as well, had a run of 3 birdies in 5 holes (incredible for me) and in completely wrecked my card

I'd be launching clubs at that point. Not sure I've ever five putted. Four putted plenty.

It honestly made me feel dizzy at the total totalling them up. I was only +4 after 11 holes and on my way to break 80.

I ended up +15 +11 for the final 7 holes.

Bottled it, although my excuse was I racing against the fading light to finish and had to rush (jogging inbetween some shots ). A couple of the shots I lost completely into the sun as it was so low.

Fuck off Jack.

Trump is more into Golf than any of the other things so getting a few golf pals to wade in was probably easy. SO thats Jack Nicklaus and the Taliban in favour.

Thankfully most people who know who Jack Nicklaus is will probably already be Trump supporters. I think the die have been cast now. Everyone who is going to vote surely already either has, or knows what they are going to do.

The comments below the tweet suggest this has not gone down well with his followers.

Some suggestions that this may have also assisted in Nicklaus making the decision.

Absolutely amazing! That is way more entertaining than the main event is going to be when the incredible hulk starts hitting greens in one after driving more than 400 yards.

Absolutely nuts! I remember Vijay Singh doing similar on that hole once.

Must admit it's going to be fascinating seeing how Bryson does this year. He could make the greatest ever golf course look like a pitch and putt. I think the fact it's autumn and soft fairways will really help him. Call it morbid curiosity.

Fantastic timing this weekend with no football on. Gonna watch hours of it.

Anyone having a bet?

I don't like to back anyone too short which rules out Bryson, McIlroy, DJ etc. So I think I'm gonna go for Xander Schauffele (14/1) and Maysuyama (22/1). I like Finau at 25/1. Tbh I'd like to back about 10 of them but will go for two from these three.

Can't wait for it! I'm going to go Finau as well, but i've been stung before with him. So annoying watching him rip it, on the green for a birdie/eagle putt and watch him miss every single one. If he could putt he'd probably be no.1

He always does well there and back an oldie, one always in the mix - maybe Kuchar

To be honest Ive watched zero golf since I stopped playing a couple of years ago but the Masters is a must

Jason Day wouldn't class as an oldie but it feels like you always get a run for your money out of him around Augusta. He's about 40/1. No idea what sort of form he's in though.

Two random outsiders for you based purely off stats, one a brilliant putter, and the other one of the longest off the tee on tour:

Jason Kokrak at 55/1 - 3rd in the putting stats this season, decent off the tee.
Cameron Champ at 55/1 - Hits it further than Rory, and it pretty good stats tee to green but can't hole a putt.

I reckon I might dump a few quid on this now

Day lost it mentally and its hard to get back but he was normally in the mix there - let me have a look at the odds

Had a quick look at where I normally go pre Masters - I think Cantlay and DJ are bankers to place so put enough on them to cover the rest of the bets. Mid price - Finau and Matt Fitzpatrick. Oldies now fall into Rose and Casey - both normally are in the mix here.

A really good tipster gave below:

Our headline selection in the outright market is Jon Rahm for 50 each way at 9/1. (1/5 the odds the first 10 places).

It has nothing to do with skimming a ball across the water and making a hole in one on 16 in practice, but I really believe Spain's Jon Rahm is the most exciting player in world golf. He can follow in the footsteps of Seve Ballesteros, Jose Maria Olazabal, and Sergio Garcia in winning the Masters for his country. Rahm is a proven winner, twice at the DP World Tour Championship, twice at the Irish Open, and recently on the US PGA Tour, at the Memorial Tournament and the difficult BMW Championship. He is a brilliant driver of the golf ball and his game has few weaknesses. The 26-year-old has curbed a suspect temperament and on his last two visits to the Masters, he's finished 4th and 9th. He is ready to become a major champion and I think he will win this week.

Our second selection in the outright market is Patrick Cantlay for 30 each way at 20/1. (1/5 the odds the first 10 places).

Quiet American Patrick Cantlay was once the best amateur golfer in the world, and he's battled back from a serious injury and the loss of a close friend to fulfil his early potential. He enters this tournament off the back of a win at the ZOZO Championship. Last year at Augusta, Cantlay shot 64 on Saturday and was then closing fast on Sunday, six under par through 15, before fading with two bogeys. That's natural talent. He's won the prestigious Memorial Tournament, has a fine long game, and is an underrated putter. A steely temperament may be his best asset and he won't be unheralded anymore in the world of golf if he wins on Sunday. Put simply, he's too good not to win a major.

Our third selection in the outright market is Matthew Fitzpatrick for 20 each way at 55/1. (1/5 the odds the first 10 places).

Tyrrell Hatton, Tommy Fleetwood, and Lee Westwood will have their fans to give England a first winner of the Masters since Danny Willett four years ago. All of them are contenders. However, I like 26-year-old Matthew Fitzpatrick to challenge for a first major title. Fitzpatrick led the field in greens hit when finishing 7th at the Masters in 2016. Last year, he opened with a disastrous 78, before matching Tiger Woods' score for the final three rounds. He's an excellent putter and he's been playing well of late on both sides of the Atlantic, without delivering for all four rounds. In 2013, Fitzpatrick became the first English winner of the US Amateur since 1911. His consistency and ability could make him a lively outsider if he can limit the mistakes and match his talent with belief.

Our fourth selection in the outright market is Victor Perez for 10 each way at 200/1. (1/5 the odds the first 10 places).

No rookie has won the Masters since Fuzzy Zoeller in 1979, and that's unlikely to change this week. However, at a monster price, it could be worth chancing Frenchman Victor Perez to be on the first page of the leaderboard. 28-year-old Perez has made rapid progress on the European Tour and he's a solid iron player. A winner of the Dunhill Links Championship, he finished second behind Tyrrell Hatton at the PGA Championship at Wentworth last month. Interestingly, Perez has Rory McIlroy's former caddie, JP Fitzgerald, on the bag. Fitzgerald knows his way around Augusta and may plot the unflappable Perez to a good showing. It's why I also advise a look at him each way in the top debutant market, which has 25 runners.

Our final selection in the outright market this week is Justin Harding for 10 each way at 300/1. (1/5 the odds the first 10 places).

South African Harding was in great form entering last year's Masters and parlayed that into a tied 12th finish on his debut. His putting was excellent and he wasn't intimidated by the challenge. I remember Chris DiMarco and Angel Cabrera taking a shine to Augusta, and it can be argued Paul Casey is another horse for the course. Perhaps Harding, who has posted third place finishes at the British and Andalucia Masters since lockdown, can channel good memories and take like a duck to Augusta once more. Not every contender on Sunday afternoon will be a superstar and I think he's overpriced at 300/1 to reach the top 10. If he wins, we can all take 2021 off!

I also recommend an each-way bet on Victor Perez in the top debutant market for 10 each way at 25/1. (1/5 the odds the first 4 places).

Er what?! That's unreal. I'd be more than pleased with driver and 5 iron on the 10th Well, i'd be pleased with hitting the fairway, never mind the second shot

Rahm is very tempting. 9s is pretty short, though I guess it's a good price if he wins
