Babineau Phil Mickelson

I’ve liked Nick Watney since January, thinking he’s a perfect match, but I’m going to have to go with Phil here, especially that he has some momentum heading to his favorite place.

Padraig Harrington

Not the greatest record at Augusta, but has a few top 10s and showed a little form in Houston. It’s time he gets back into contention on Sunday at a major.

Winner: Lee Westwood (T-30); wild card: Marc Leishman (T-66)

Rude Phil Mickelson

Now that Philly Mick has won Houston, the 2011 Masters has a favorite other than the pimento cheese sandwich.

Steve Marino

Aggressive player in form. Almost won Bay Hill. Should’ve won Bay Hill.

Winner: Charl Schwartzel (T-30); wild card: Marc Leishman (T-66).

Martin Nick Watney

Guy hasn’t finished worse than 13th this year, is coming off the biggest win of his career at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and finished seventh here last year. That’s a recipe for success.

Aaron Baddeley

His best finish here is 17th in 2009, but the Australian could be in the midst of a career year. He already won at Riviera and was fourth last week at Houston. He’s one of the Tour’s best putters, too.

Winner: Charl Schwartzel (T-30); wild card: Kyle Stanley (T-60).

McCabe Anthony Kim

Yes, he has fallen to 40th in the world order, having been 14th a year ago coming into the Masters. Yes, there is a volatile and immature side to him that has contributed to the slide. But Kim remains one of the game’s great enigmas, an abundantly talented player who closed with 65 to finish third at Augusta last year and shot a second-round 65 en route to a T-20 in his 2009 debut. So he’s demonstrated an ability to play this course and in recent weeks he has shown snippets of good form.

Aaron Baddeley

When in Augusta, turn to the guys who can putt. Baddeley fits the bill. And when the guy who can putt is also striking it well – again, like Baddeley – then you have an interesting possibility.

Winner: Charl Schwartzel (T-30); wild card: Angel Cabrera (MC).

Ringler Phil Mickelson

Last week I went with Phil to win in Houston and no reason to back away this week, where he is the defending champ.

Aaron Baddeley

Form is not great at Augusta, but already a winner this year and was in contention last week. Like his chances to compete on the weekend.

Winner: Phil Mickelson (1); wild card: Fred Couples (T-60).

Miceli Phil Mickelson

He has been my favorite since Jan. 1, and now everyone is jumping on the bandwagon.

Angel Cabrera

He was on no one’s radar when he won his past two majors. Sounds very familiar coming into this year’s Masters.

Winner: J.B. Holmes (T-42); wild card: Johnson Wagner (T-36).
