Saying someone *will* win anything in golf is madness. Even said, Bryson at +1000 is mildly tempting.Weren’t people just falling over themselves saying how there’s no way Dustin Johnson wouldn’t win the US Open given his dominance in the FedEx Playoffs? Although I think Bryson plays well (top10 for sure) I don’t think he wins the Masters.
Glad you posted these....but that is for 1 event too.These stats argue that he is not just a long ball striker.

Sign. Me. Up.I‘m hoping he shows up with a 48-inch driver and averages 370. Hoping he hits it into the 14th fairway four times from the 13th tee. Hoping he starts arm-locking his chips and pitches. Hoping he pisses off as many golf traditionalists as possible - and no better place to do it than at Augusta.
How he starts does seem to determine his whole direction like this. Not that it doesn't for others, but his attitude changes in a hurry when he can't get it together it seems.The poise he showed on Sunday at the Open will not be there at the Masters...1 or 2 errant wedges and/or putts and he goes into "WTF...hand pointing at the ball and hole mode"
