Hottest storylines heading into The Masters 2016 tournament
With so much on the line, we take a look at some of the biggest storylines which will unfold when The Masters 2016 kicks off at Augusta this week.
Can Spieth make it two for two?
In 2015 Jordan Spieth carded an 18-under 270 to win the Green Jacket and tie Tiger Woods’ four-day scoring record. However, the Texan has won just once this season at the Tournament of Champions in January and went through a difficult spell of finishing T21, cut, T17, T18 before finishing tied for ninth at the Match Play Championship. He’s not on a good run right now, but can he find form this week?
Is it finally Jason’s day?
By taking the World No.1 spot from Jordan Spieth, Jason Day immediately places himself as favourite for a Green Jacket this year. Back-to-back victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and Match Play Championship has only strengthened his cause. His best finish at this event previously was tied for second in 2011.
Will the real Phil Mickelson please stand up
Three times Phil Mickelson has tamed The Masters, although he hasn’t tasted success in any event since capturing the 2013 British Open. Second at Pebble Beach in February and fifth at the World Golf Championship a few weeks later, Lefty is playing well and could be in with a shout. And remember, he was second behind Spieth at Augusta in 2015 but narrowly lost out.
We’re missing some legends
Tiger Woods announced he was out of The Masters last week because of bad problems, so cannot challenge for Jack Nicklaus' 18 career major victories this time around (will he ever again?). Arnold Palmer then saddened us all by also declining to participate this year due to a bad shoulder – although he did confirm he would be there to watch the action as it unfolds.
McIlroy chasing Grand Slam
McIlroy arrived at Augusta in 2015 needing to win the Masters to complete a career grand slam and cement himself the best in golf. However, that didn't happen (he finished fourth) and he went through 2015 without winning another major in what turned into a sour season for the Northern Irishman. Augusta has never been too good for McIlroy, either; he might have won in 2011 had it not been for that memorable Sunday back-nine meltdown which left him in tatters as his hopes of victory were completely dashed. Can he bounce back this year?
