Cue Jim Nantz and the Yanni theme music, The Masters is just a few days from teeing off in Augusta, Ga.
Golf fans around the globe are once again impatiently waiting for the "tradition unlike any other." I, for one, cannot wait, salivating at the prospect of an epic Sunday showdown with two of golf's elite.
Last year, Phil Mickelson persevered through adversity to claim his third green jacket, amidst the turmoil of his wife and mother suffering from breast cancer.
He will be eager to continue his good form after winning in Humble, Texas, at the Shell Houston Open on Sunday. Phil can't wait to tee off at Augusta, where he is very comfortable; and he always seems to play his best when it matters most.
The Masters is never short of compelling storylines, either. Whether it's the best young player in the field, the savvy veteran looking for another run at the prestigious green jacket, or an emotional situation like Lefty from last year. The Masters and CBS always find a dramatic story and bring it full circle.
The Masters is one of the greatest American sporting events, rich in history and tradition. Generally, it is very unpredictable, but here are a few things you can expect to see or hear over the next week at Augusta National.
