He played superbly and has been bubbling for a few weeks - has done well in Portrush as an amateur so was a nice bet this week

And Rory absolutely fucked it, which I must admit was quite amusing.

Hole 1 and hole 18 on R1 killed him - he smashed it on Friday. He wouldn’t have fancied it today though.....too wet for him

All reports seem to say he was not 'impaired' in any way, and that the accident happened at a point where other vehicles have also left the road. Speed seems to be the issue, so I think this will just turn out to be what it is, an accident.

He looked completely zoned out in an interview only a few days ago. Then this. Hard not to put two and two together and assume it's related to the ambien addiction. Hope not. Either way it sounds serious enough at his age that it will mean the end of competitive golf for him. Shame to end it this way.

"Comminuted open fractures affecting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones were stabilized by inserting a rod into the tibia"

Yep, he's fucked. He'll be walking with a limp the rest of his life. Comminuted means multiple fractures and open means its busted through the skin. To the tib and fib. Absolutely fucked. Basically his legs have snapped like bread sticks.

Wow. Yeah he's done. I've been kinda hoping he'd knock it on the head anyway. He's achieved incredible things, go and enjoy the rest of your life with your kids.

Yeah there's really no point is there. The amount of rehab this will take to get back, at his age? Why bother. He's won everything there is to win, twice over. Just ride off into the sunset and start slamming pornstars again Tiger.

I’ll do some research and come back with some tips tomorrow. Speith won this weekend, Casey always good here, Reed doing ok also but it is a course that suits big hitting experienced guys so Rahm, DJ, McIlroy etc

This guy is a great tipster, especially on golf - usually gives his Masters tips Wed evening

Fred Couples to lead after the first round. Easy money

Our headline selection is Patrick Cantlay for €10 each way at 22/1. (1/5 the odds the first 9 places, William Hill).

In 2019, when Tiger Woods won the Masters, American Patrick Cantlay shot 64 on Saturday and was then closing fast on Sunday, six under par through 15, before fading with two bogeys. If he'd played those final three holes in one under par, he would have been in a play off. That's natural talent. The unassuming Cantlay was once the best amateur golfer in the world, and he's battled back from a serious back injury and the loss of a close friend to fulfil his early potential. He's won the prestigious Memorial Tournament, has a fine long game, and is an underrated putter, especially on fast greens, which he will encounter this week. Now 10th in the world rankings, Cantlay has played well on the PGA Tour this year, with a second at the American Express and a tie for third at Pebble Beach. 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. I think he wins this week and people will be looking back afterwards and kicking themselves because 22/1 is value.

Our second selection is Jon Rahm for €6 each way at 12/1. (1/5 the odds the first 9 places, William Hill).

Spain's Jon Rahm is a proven winner, twice at the DP World Tour Championship, twice at the Irish Open, and last year on the US PGA Tour at the Memorial Tournament and the difficult BMW Championship. He is a brilliant driver of the golf ball, has a sure short game and he carries few weaknesses. The evidence of that is a record of rock solid consistency from the world number three in 2021 - he's accumulated five top 10 finishes in seven events. The 26-year-old has curbed a suspect temperament and on his last three visits to the Masters, he's finished tied for 7th, tied for 9th and 4th. Overjoyed at the birth of his son Kepa last weekend, he can carry those good vibes to Augusta. He is unquestionably ready to become a major champion and it's a matter of when, not if. Why not on Sunday April 11th 2021?

Our third selection is Matthew Fitzpatrick for €4 each way at 50/1. (1/5 the odds the first 8 places, Bet 365).

I like the prospects of 26-year-old Matthew Fitzpatrick to challenge for a first major title. I believe the firm and fast conditions will be right up his alley. He's an excellent putter and has finished in the top 20 on his last five starts on the PGA Tour, so his form is red hot. Fitzpatrick led the field in greens hit when finishing 7th at the Masters in 2016. In 2013, Fitzpatrick became the first English winner of the US Amateur since 1911. He's not afraid to win a big event - he has landed the DP World Tour Championship twice, including last December's renewal. He also has the very experienced Billy Foster on the bag this week. His consistency and ability could make him a strong contender for the green jacket if he can limit the mistakes and match his talent with belief.

Our fourth selection is Paul Casey for €3 each way at 33/1. (1/5 the odds the first 9 places, William Hill).

England's Paul Casey went very close to winning the US PGA Championship last year and the 43 year old will be hoping he can claim a major title before the window closes on his chances. Casey has always been a talented golfer with a strong all round game. He's experiencing a second wind career wise - he's now in the world's top 20 and before the WGC Matchplay, he racked up four top 10s in a row on the PGA Tour. He likes Augusta - he's been inside the top 10 five times in his 14 starts to date and has shot 15 rounds in the 60s. A 15 time winner on the European Tour (including the PGA Championship) and a three time US Tour winner, a major is the only thing that's missing. His experience, ability and current form certainly gives him a chance.

Our fifth selection is Shane Lowry for €3 each way at 125/1. (1/5 the odds the first 8 places, Bet 365).

I think Lowry could engineer his best ever Masters finish this week. His tie for 25th last November has been his highest Augusta showing to date - and the Open champion seems to have found something with his game. A top 10 at the Players Championship will give him confidence and firm and fast conditions should be nothing for him to fear - he nearly won a US Open at Oakmont. Lowry has the talent to contend this week and maybe finishing the job at Portrush will allow him to become a part of the conversation.

Our final outright selection is C.T. Pan for €2 each way at 250/1. (1/5 the odds the first 9 places, William Hill).

In 2019, Taiwan's C.T. Pan won the Heritage at Harbour Town and that qualified him for last November's Masters. On his debut appearance, he led the field in scrambling and tied for seventh place. Once the leading amateur in the world, he enters this event off the back of a tie for third at the Honda Classic, where his approach play was sharp. He is using a local caddie and I think he's overpriced at 250/1.

I swear Sandy Lyle only practices the first 2 holes. Always goes -1 after 2. Now 8 over. He should just walk off after the second imo.

Taylor Made must be hating it, he's using an old M1 driver which must be about 4 or 5 models back in their range and an old M4 3 wood, would love to see him win it using 'old tech'

Rose was a huge price - about 80/1 I think - which was tempting but I left him alone cos he's shown no recent form at all. He's now tied Nicklaus for the most 1st round leads at Augusta and he's still never won it so I expect him to fade away before Sunday.

I enjoyed it yesterday - much prefer it when the course is a test as opposed to soft and receptive like it was in November.

Rose +2 thru 6 today

Mind you he was +2 thru 7 yesterday, but at this stage this looks like vintage Rose at the Masters.
