Only one place in the world lets you buy a top-notch pimento cheese sandwich
for $1.50 then a minute later watch Bryson DeChambeau hit a 400-yard drive.
That place is Augusta National Golf Course, home of the Masters.
If I was a betting man
It’s not quite Tiger
against the field, but these guys have the best odds to take home
the green jacket (according to our friends at Draftkings).
Dustin Johnson (+950): The defending champ and world number one is
the rightful favorite.
Bryson DeChambeau (+1050): Before the 2020 Masters, Byrson
infamously stated that he considered the course a “par 67.” He
barely made the cut and finished tied for 34th. Expect a better
showing from Bryson, especially after this
Justin Thomas (+1050): Winning this year’s Players Championship
proved Justin Thomas can beat anyone. If he putts well, the field
could be in trouble.
Jordan Spieth (+1200): A past winner (2015), Spieth is playing
awesome golf, having just captured his first win in four years.
Brooks Koepka (+2800)
Collin Morikawa (+3000)
Lee Westwood (+5000)

🏀 The Arizona Wildcats fired men’s basketball coach Sean Miller after
12 seasons. Despite allegations of academic fraud and impending NCAA
sanctions, the Athletic Director claimed it was Miller’s lack of tournament
wins that got him fired. We think his incredibly
profuse sweating might’ve also had something to do with it.
🏀 Shaquille O’Neal randomly paid for a man’s engagement ring at an
Atlanta jewelry store. Shaq has a history
of spreading positivity through random acts of kindness, saying his
only goal is to make people smile.
C. Jack Nicklaus won six Masters during his
storied career, one more than Tiger has.
