    Golf

    Since Tiger's demise some of the sheen seems to have dulled on the illustrious game of sport, it isn't that the level of skill displayed isn't top notch, or indeed that there aren't exciting finishes (the Euro order of merit came down to a few quid this year in the last tourney) but it's the fact that Nicklaus' majors and Tigers' ultimate career goal to surpass them will now almost certainly never transpire.

    Especially as the Northern Ireland hero Rory McIlroy has assumed his position as world number one now.

    Never write off the Tiger, do so at your own peril!

    Well said, he looks to be back in action now

    Augusta next, more or less his home turf, for the Masters. These are the ones he needs if he is to ever catch the Golden Bear in major wins (18)

    yeah, the putter is the difference with him when he gets on a roll, 20-25ft putts are 90% chance of dropping.

    I am really looking forward to the masters now, should be great to watch.

    Love the Masters and would love to play the course!

    You boys play much golf? I'm off 9. When I was a kid I played off 5 and could have made something but I found alcohol and women instead!

    Same as me mate, I got down to 4 in England, playing week in week out, shot a 76 around St Andrews Old Course and level par round the back 9 at Carnoustie Didnt play when I first got to Oz 5-6 years ago, only when my old man came to visit, now hes here for good and been playing alot regular. Got a 10 handicap when I first joined the club and in 3 months I got down to 7

    Shame its sideways

    some cracking images there mate.

    I couldn't play those places they would throw me off for taking divots

    Like to play with Funky G the odd time though, when the weather permits. Perhaps later this week actually if it holds out.

    Quality pics Foddy! I played St Andrews last year and amazing to play it but had the worst wind ever! Went around in 12 which was ok considering (they said they would have closed course if tournament was on as wind was so bad!)
    Although its iconic, I didn't think it was that great or that hard but with all these courses I would love to play them just before/after a major championship to see the difference
    My highlight was parring 17 and driving the 18th green and just missing eagle (got birdie)
    Played in Marbella last wknd and Algarve last year as well as Vegas (doing that again this year) and Thailand recently
    Also playing Portrush in May
    Didn't manage to play in Oz last year but my mate plays Royal Melbourne a lot

    Thanks mate, we won... 4th play off hole... crazy game, went 3 down after 3! Pulled it back to level after 9 and then went two up with 6 to play... lost the 17th and 18th to tie... played 1 (par), 2 (par), 3 (par) and stiffed one to a foot down 4 ( a hole I birdied on the main round) to win and take the win. I hit driver off the tea and then dogged a 52 deg wedge to a foot, best shot ive played for a while. Pumped. Love this game

    The draws been made: http://www.masters.com/en_US/players...ngs/index.html

    Nothing exceptional stands out for the first two days...

    These look to be decent groupings:

    Scott, Van pelt and Kaymer
    Stricker, Harrington and Cink
    Immleman, Fowler and Rose
    Donald, Molinari and Watney
    Couples, Clarke and Ishikawa

    and my fav, McIlroy, Bubba and the Angel

    Bring it on!
