It will also be nice to an Asian winning it if Tiger fails....

Someone like KJ Choi or Ryo would also be nice!

Tiger won in Bay hill not pebble bay, pebble bay is the condo at tanjong rhu. pebble beach is a very nice golf course along 17 mile drive in california.

I want to see Tiger, Rory, Phil, Ryo Ishikawa in contention.

np, i would love to see Tiger at Pebble bay Laughing

means he would be living within touching distance, and the pebble bay property prices would shoot through the roof.

Everyone else who took part in this Major. If not why would they want to take part in the first place if the players don't belief in themselves. Ultimately, it would be the in-form (Ooo-hong) player who will win. Who would expect Charl Schwartzel to win last year? Probably another dark horse may win.

Why length is a factor in Augusta?

Conventional wisdom has it that big hitters who also can putt have the best chance to win the Masters.

The oddsmakers apparently have bought into that hypothesis, making Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson the favorites for the first major of the year, which starts Thursday at Augusta National.

Woods has earned four Green Jackets, Mickelson three, and the 22-year-old McIlroy is expected to be in that exalted company someday.

"There are four (reachable) par-5s on this course, so that means the long hitter is 16 strokes ahead of the average hitter before he even tees it up for four rounds of play," Gene Sarazen, who captured the second Masters, in 1935, once said.

Said Mickelson: "The thing about Augusta is that length is a big factor here. Even though you can win no matter how far you hit the golf ball, length is a factor and is an advantage.

"To be able to keep the ball in smaller sections on the green can be very advantageous."

And since the course has been lengthened over the years to nearly 7,500 yards, that would seem to make it even more difficult for a guy such as Luke Donald, the No. 1 player in the world, who would love to make the Masters his first major title.

However, Donald has a blueprint he can follow. He can take the approach of short-hitter Zach Johnson, who laid up on every par 5 for four days and played them in 11 under par on his way to winning the Green Jacket in 2007.

Other not-so-long hitters, such as Mike Weir (2003) and Trevor Immelman (2008), also have won in the last decade, and master putter Ben Crenshaw took home the Green Jacket in 1984 and 1995.

Cool Hand Luke certainly knows how to plot his way around Augusta — he tied for fourth last year and tied for third in 2005.
