    Agreed - no different to the likes of O'Meara, Daly, Hamilton, Cink and Duval playing in The Open every year.

    They can't play past 60. There is no limit at The Masters.

    Personally, I think the exemption should be for 10 yrs only. Beyond that you end up with players turning up for a nice jolly and an ego rub, their golfing ability at that level having largely left them. Yes, I do remember Tom Watson at Turnberry but that was very much the exception and you do not base rules on exceptions.

    Correction......best Masters that YOU can remember. Anyway, a ball hasn't been hit yet, it could be a total washout if 1 player runs away with it.

    Just stuck a few playful each way bets on Justin Thomas, Alex Noreen and for a laugh Freddie C. Was between Freddie and Angel Cabrera.

    Re: The Masters 2018

    I love the old boys trotting out. Personally I love the history of the game and feel the Masters is a real celebration of the sport.

    During the week you have people involved aged 7 to 70 years old. All enjoy it and I enjoy watching it. Its a special thing and so rare in any sport, let alone arguably the joint biggest event in the sport.

    All this talk that the Masters is not a major because of its entry qualification is a load of old Nonsense. Ask the players and Im pretty certain that the would 99% all say that the claret jug and green jacket are the biggest prizes in the sport.

    Ultimately the best in the world all get an invite, plus the best of yesteryear.

    Whats the difference?

    Appreciate that there is no formal qualifying, however you qualify by getting to the top 50 by plying your trade over the year and entire career.

    As I understand things the Masters committee also discourage much older champs from continuing to play. So again why the problem.

    I love seeing people like Watson, couples, cabrerra, etc

    And I will love watching Nickelson, Woods, scott, Garcia in 20 years time as well.

    Only annoying thing is the lack of full round coverage and Id be interested to know why they dont allow it?

    Regardless its somthing I personally love. The open and the masters are the two highlights of the year for me. Not just for the competition (although that is essential) but for the sheer spectacle of the whole thing.

    Re: The Masters 2018

    I've just done a couple of request a bets on Sky. 66/1 for Bubba, DJ and JT to make 2+ eagles each sounds like easy money to me.

    Also did a slightly more out-there one: Rory, DJ, JT 2+ eagles, and Tiger, Bubba, Rahm & Rose to get 1+ eagle. 500/1! 50p on that, should be a nice 250 quid in my pocket, haha.

    Aye, they'll never beat Jack in 1986 for sheer drama. That back 9 charge.
    Woods although equally brilliant always won his majors from the front - nowt wrong with that but little drama for the viewer.

    Gary out-drove Jack during the ceremonial tee-shot. Told Jack after "it's okay, you out-drove me for 50 years"
