Bovada has posted odds for the Masters.
Adam Scott and Rory McIlory are favored at 10-1. Phil Mickelson is 12-1 and Jason Day, my pick, despite his thumb, is 14-1. Rickie Fowler is 66-1 and Fred Couples is 125-1.
Until Couples' back betrays him, he'll play well and be cool and attract among the largest galleries on the course.
Biggest crowd I've seen so far Tuesday is the crowd waiting to get into the gift shop.
Monday, many didn't have a chance.
People with a one-day practice-round pass, people that wanted to go to Augusta National Golf Club as badly as they wanted to go anywhere, found their way to the tournament from the West or Midwest, Southwest, South or Northeast. They flew and drove, booked their hotel and planned their strategy.
And then the rain came and refused tos top. The course shut down for the first time since 2003 and the fans were forced to scatter. Do not pass go, do not stop in gift shop. Many went downtown, or to the restaurants and bars along Washington Rd. One chain restaurant that cranked out safe music called in servers and implored them to come in. Still, the wait was an hour. Across the parking lot, another restaurant couldn't stop the rain from leaking through the roof.
Downtown the wait was at least an hour. If you found a table, you felt as if you won something, perhaps a meal and, more importantly, an opportunity to stay dry.
I looked at the patrons walking in Tuesday. Almost everybody was smiling. Those who were forced to leave Monday would have understood.
