The Golf Channel speculated this evening on Golf Central who Tiger should be paired with on Thursday and Friday.

Good point because it will be a big distraction for anyone who has hopes of winning.

Mike Weir's name is on their short list because he has won his Masters' Jacket and he's mature enough that he shouldn't be distracted....they said mature, not low probability of winning.

Other names were Steve Stricker....definitely not Phil.

THe draw should be done in the EXACT same way it always had. If you get paired with TIger and aren't happy.....to bad for you, suck it up or withdraw.

However, I'm sure Augusta has been thinking this exact thing since December. It will be interesting to see who he does play with. I am assuming the weekend pairing will be done as "normal" but maybe by then the initial reaction will be over and the knowledgable gallery will just watch the tournament. I hope so anyway.

Ernie and Jesper would be fun choices.

Yes, I know Jesper isn't playing.....but it would be fun to see.

I'd pay to see TW knock out Jesper. :hyper:

Parnevik and McCarron will somehow end up being his partners. Tiger will dummy Jesper all the while Scotty is pointing and calling him a 'cheater'!

Stricker and Weir are interesting thoughts.

As noted previously, they are both mature players.

And, they are both (or were) friends of TW.

It wouldn't be fair to saddle a contender with him imo.

I bet he plays with the Mid-Am champ and another sacrificial lamb.

Does anyone know how they make the pairings for the field. I know they put one of the amatuers with last years champion, but other than that I don't know how they do it.

I think though if they manipulate the pairings in any way it is unfair to everyone, so as I said I just hope they don't alter the process from the past. IF they do the tournament jeopardizes its own integrity.

I heard something about a system like "flighting" players. So top 30 ranked players don't get paired with Monday qualifiers and those less likely to make the cut.

Now I can't remember if this was every PGA tour event or majors or what.

i agree
do not show favoritism to Tiger
do the draw as it has ALWAYS been done
Tiger wants people to respect his privacy, well Tiger should respect how the draw is done too
No requests for certain playing partners, plus based on what i have heard
he isnt nice to play with ANYTIME

put him with JOHN DALY
he knows how to handle adversity
SMOKE A BUTT, have a drink and hang out with HOOTERS chicks
Tiger could learn something hahahahaha

John Daly wouldnt be a bad choice, think of the footage for "being john daly" and the fact that they will have
Tiger on camera 90% of the time anyway. I can hear john daly now...whats it like being Tiger Woods? and Tiger answering "You have no idea............." the set up for next years show replacing "being john daly"..........being Tiger Woods........:help:

Who cares who he is paired with? Once again, this is manufactured news by TGC.

Yet people keep chiming in with some lame and tired jokes, then turn around and whine about the media for giving TW too much attention.

Not sure how else to break this to you, but Phil has not been world #2 for a couple of months now. The seat is currently occupied by Stricker. :p

I am sure plenty of pros all over the world who are outside looking in would not mind being paired with him because that would mean they are in the field.

They should put him with Rocco or Bubba. I'm more interested in crowd reaction than who he plays with. But I agree - draw it fairly like any other tournament. Tiger aint bigger than the game so why change the rules?

Agreed - especially on the 2nd half of your post. So many comedians among us apparently. :eek:

Crowd reaction? C'mon, Tiger chose to return at Augusta just because "they" (The Augusta Mafia) can guarantee there will be no crowd reaction...unless you want to surrender your pass for now and forever.

Also, TAM has never been shy about doing a "Frank Sinatra" (my way) when it comes to pairings, invitees, etc. If Mr. Woods (or IMG) were to make an inquiry expressing some concern about the first two days' pairing prior to the announcement of said pairings, there will be some consideration to that request. Most likely TAM will do whatever they want without any explanation at all. As long as TW isn't in one of those "traditional" special pairings (previous year's Champ with US Amateur, etc.), which I don't believe he is - FedEx Champ means nothing to TAM - they can make it up however they want. I expect TW will be in friendly territory - O'Meara, Mediate, Stricker - and far away from Fuzzy, Ernie and Phil.

This is TAM's tournament and the PGA Tour is just another "special interest" without any standing. Money list? Piffle...we don't care about money...we have enough. World ranking? Might get you in...but you still have to get an invitation and if we don't want you...we don't want you. Winner on tour last year...still need that invite. Previous Masters Champ...well, that is probably the safest category for an "automatic" invitation...but you still need the letter and if you insist on playing past your "best before" date you get that gentle reminder that perhaps it is a tournament best seen and not played.
