Golf is the only sport where the athletes don’t compete against one another, they compete against the course.
The “best” course in golf is debatable, but the most magical course in the world of golf finds its home in Augusta, Ga.
Augusta National GC, the home of the Masters for 75 years, contains as much history as it does beauty.
From driving up Magnolia Lane, to the ancient clubhouse, and Amen Corner, Augusta National is challenging and beautiful.
The few who take the course must feel privileged first and horrified next. The Masters’ course is one of the most demanding around, especially the three holes (11, 12, 13) that make up Amen Corner, and players must be on the top of their game to compete for a victory there.
Not just anyone on the PGA can play, and the Masters only invites the top 96 players in the golfing world to compete in the marquee tournament of the year.
And of all those players, some have a better chance of victory—those most exciting players who can get any casual sports fan to tune in.
This list outlines the top 10 most exciting threesomes when the tournament begins, Thursday and Friday.
The players’ excitement factor will be determined by four factors; Play grade, Recent/Masters wins, Likelihood of showing emotion, and intangibles—each are based on a 1-5 point scale.
Each player will be given his own grade, along with an overall group grade regarding how exciting each will be.
