Is it just me, or is this overall a pretty weak field of golfers shooting for the green coat?

Does Tiger win by default?

Maybe I'm wrong, let's see how it plays out. It seems like most of these entries are not ready for primetime players.

I know little about golf but have noticed an increase of Tiger related news the past week.  Maybe they've set it up this way so he gets an easy victory and gains his confidence back.  He made a shitload of money for the sport in his prime.

So who is missing that would make the field stronger? Nicklaus? Trevino? Palmer?

Same as previous years but those who can beat Tiger are not playing all that well, and the oldtimers that used to make a run at him are now just tooooooooo old. Couples, Goosen, Love III etc it just won't happen. Even Mickelson playing in last weeks event is an indication he doesn't think it will happen in Georgia. Now I am reading Dustin Johnson is on the shelf. He was one of the few that could have made a run. Weak Field Amigo

I think it's a great field and has a chance to be an excellent event.  

Mahan
Donald
McIlroy
Rose
Adam Scott
Westwood
Tiger 
Lefty
Bradley
Kaymar
Schwartzel
Watson

Even Cabrera made a bunch of birdies this last week.  

Maybe some aren't playing that great, but they are great players.

now we're talking,  include hotdamm in HutchEmAll's list and we have a wide open tournament. Otherwise aside from Scott and McIlroy, the rest are toast.

GL though

Well, who are you losing your money on since the field is deep and your getting generous odds????

It's Tiger vs the field I would have to guess.

They have the winners from the last 26 major events, and I think I read somewhere they have 46 of the top 50 players.........

Doesn't matter , strong or weak, everyone has their own  nightmares on the back nine on Sunday. Lotsa' young Ryder Cuppers n long hitters. I like the field. The crowd seems jacked up n full of energy more so this year. Should be fun.

I was in Vegas when Tiger won two weeks ago.  He was 6/1 to win it all.  I placed a real small bet on Tiger as the line hadn't changed.  I went back to load up less than 20 minutes later and he had dropped from 6/1 to 3/1.  Here is to hoping the 6/1 comes in!

What are there, 13 different winners in the last 13 majors?  

Tiger and everyone else?  Is that some kind of a joke?

I'll take Mickelson to win this.    Saw him a few times this year and it looks like he's in the best physical condition I've seen him in a long, long time.    Maybe he knows that time is running out for him.   He's in his 40's now.    


I don't think he's teed off yet so , I'm not making this prediction after it started.

I think this field is VERY solid. Weak field my behind....not to mention Rory, Tiger, and Phil are all coming in playing well. Plus, Mahan, Bradley, Westwood, Donald...and many more. Weak field playing for the "green coat" my behind

The field is not weak. Its just not deep.

You have 96 players in the field.

50 of the best in the world. Another 10 who can play. And another 36 who should not be playing this event. Players like Larry Mize, Ben Crenshaw, Mark O'Meara, Ian Woosnam, ect. ect. all the former champions who can play for life (or until they get to the point where they cant at least compete) also you have the Mid-Am champ, Asian Am champ, ect.

So no the field is not what you would see on the PGA tour, but you cant really say it is weak either since you do have the 50 top players in the world all in one event.

Hawk no worries, didn't mean to sound like an behind 

I think its a shame that Ernie Els isn't there...

They need to get this garbage straight....I mean Dustin Johnson had to withdraw a a few days before the start of the tourney. The least they could of done was give Ernie a call and flown his behind to Augusta National IMO.

I completly forgot about Bay Hill. They need to have somebody famous to run that thing, get some publicity out there.........
