I am curious to see if Tiger has been able to get his game back, maybe not as his twenty something self. I expect some of the younger talent to steal the show.

Young talent NEVER win the Masters. In fact, I can't even remember the last time someone under 30 won the Masters.

Tiger's 4 wins were all before he was 30. But other than him, you are right, not a lot in the last 20 years, Immelman and Olazabal were 28. Last was Schwarzel in 2011 when he was 26.

Definitely rare for someone who hasn't played there quite a few times to win it.

I expect Rory McIlroy to be very near the top for last round at Augusta.

You're right there were a couple of 'almost 30' types. When I was reading their ages I was reading their ages NOW as opposed to when they won their Masters tourney. Although anyone close to 30 years old is far from being a 'young' golfer.

^^^ Of course you have to be in PGA to get invitation to the Masters, not a lot of teenage or early twenty something are card carrying PGA members.

Tiger is a done deal I fear. Sadly, it looks like Jack will keep his records.

I'm not expecting him win anything, at best maybe a top 10 placing.

I've been in the IGA, is that close enough?

There are dozens of tour pro's under the age of 26, don't fool yourself.

I don't see how he could possibly make the cut, let alone finish in the top 10. He has a horrible swing and in my estimation has absolutely zero chance of being top 10, I don't see him making the cut. I think Rory could easily miss the cut also, he's playing terribly right now for his standards. Top 50 plus ties and anyone within' 10 strokes of the lead.
