Good start to the year for Tommy Fleetwood winning The Dubai Invitational from Rory and a South African, by one shot, hopefully this year, he will be in contention for at least one of the majors.

Rory wins the Dubai Desert Classic, but the performance of the weekend without doubt goes to 19 year old American Nick Dunlap, becoming the first amateur to win on the PGA tour since Mickelson in 1991.

The Players starts today, favourite Scottie Scheffler is in good form following winning Arnie's tournament last week, Rory not so good, since his win at the Dubai Desert Classic in January. Hovland seems the best bet for an European win.

Fantastic finish with Harman, Schauffele, Clark and Scheffler all in contention, how Clark's final putt, to take it to a playoff, didn't go in I'll never know, but full credit to Scheffler winning with a superb final round 64.

Will Rory finally do it?

I've never really been a fan of The Masters, especially it's classification as a major, its a by invitation contest rather than a true open contest. It's also incredibly fake as a course, there's no doubting it's beauty on screen it would seem but in reality the mud is painted green, brown patches of grass are painted green, deadfall in the wooded area is collected and stacked daily, it's the golfing equivalent of Katie Price. Give me a windy, rainy day on St Endoc or Saunton any day.

Weather not looking great for today, strong winds and thunderstorms forecast, the good news it's looking ok for the rest of the tournament.

Defending champion is a LIV golfer, Jon Rahm, so hoping he doesn't retain his title. Not surprisingly Scottie Scheffler is the strong favourite odds are 4/1 with Rahm and Rory at 10s. Rory looking to complete his own grand slam, sadly not confident that's gonna happen. Will be interesting to see how Ludvig Aberg does in his first Masters.

I’ve gone Fleetwood to win (perhaps heart over head) & Homa to place on top 8

Hopefully none of the LIV guys get anywhere near it…particularly Mickelson

20 years ago today, Phil Mickelson won his first major at the Masters.

Rory off to a fine start, Tiger not too bad either. But go'on Danny Willett!

Great effort from Tiger making a record 24 consecutive cuts is some achievement, pity about Danny Willett finishing with a 7 on the 18th, otherwise, considering he hasn't played for 6 months, that's a very good first 2 rounds.
