His odds to win the Masters jumped from 40-1 odds to 25-1. He's getting better and better, but I think the bar is being set too high for him right now. We usually don't see players start out hot and winning it anyways.
yeah, as they pointed out on the telecast. Putting on Hawaii greens are different than putting at Augusta and the US Open. But right now, he's striking the ball so crisp. Just once I'd like to play a round of golf where I know that I can make a golf ball do just about anything I want it to!
He still needs a little more discretion in his game to be a consistent threat in major tournaments. There were a couple of times I was watching this weekend where his caddy would suggest the logical play, and JT would say, "I think I can get it to the front of the green" and his caddy would just sort of shrug his shoulders and go palms up. It didn't matter this weekend because of the margin, but some of the shots he tries to hit at times are definitely ill-advised.

he doesn't have the short game for augusta ... doesn't have the iron control, either ... bombing it and hitting wedges into 500 yd par fives isn't the game at augusta ... those greens are small, narrow and maniacal, the exact opposite of the ones in hawaii ...
