Tiger Woods starts the tour off with a stop in Augusta, where pent up frustration, drama, emotion, and loneliness awaits.

How many photographrer's are dreaming of a shot with a steamy blond, creeping to his room at 3 am?

Where does Tiger stay at Augusta? Will he play well without all the extracurricular fun to relieve the stress?  Being relaxed is key to playing well. So, I can understand the need for company, but don't get married if you want to have multiple girlfriends.

Now, as far as being able to pull off a victory, as far as I know, his leg is not broken, which still did not stop him from a win that day a couple of summers ago.

My Yahoo Fantasy Masters line up will be Tiger Woods as my A player, with Phil Mickelson as his replacement in the event of a missed cut. 

I like the first round pairing and will also take K.J. Choi as my B player, along with Dustin Johnson who is playing well.

My B backups in case of missed cuts or injures will be Retief Goosen, and Padraig Harrington, who could easily get activated with a hot round.

As my C player, I will use Matt Kuchar also in the Tiger Woods group on Thursday and Friday.

In case Kuchar crashes and burns, which isn't likely in Georgia, I will use Mike Weir in his place.

This season in Yahoo Fantasy Golf, I have crashed and burned, like a falling meteorite.

I am at a full-season ranking at 40.224th with 1,905 points. I had at one point passed  three Yahoo experts, and was closing in on the fourth, when picks suddenly started sucking eggs.

This week, I will get some good points with this lineup. I am certain.

I would like to see the new and improved Ernie Els make a run at the Green Jacket again, and battle Woods down the wire. Els better play well or a certain guy is going to grab that number one rating right back.

A long time, ex-Marine friend of mine is getting ready for one last trip. God Bless Capt. Skip Stafford, one of the world-renowned best Steel-head fisherman, and fishing guides known to man.

One story he would always tell was when Pete Rose chartered Capt. Skip to take him out fishing, Capt. Skip always knew he would have free fuel that month.

Pete would bet on anything, from biggest fish, to what color the next boat they see would be.

Thanks to a good mentor, from a grateful employee.
