Ladies and Gentlemen — the moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! It’s Masters week, and I, for one, am giddy like a school girl.

Masters Week brings out the best in me for a slew of reasons, least of all may be the actual golf.

Not only is it a milestone marking the end of Winter’s miserable reign, but it’s also one of the sporting events everyone feels like they have to watch for the sake of their “fandom” — even if they aren’t particularly fans of golf.

And, most importantly, it’s the best chance all year to make money betting on golf.

Napa, California – The 2016 Safeway Open had the potential to be one of the most watched events on the tour this season.  Now it’s just the opening event of the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Schedule.

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed (USA) vs. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson (Europe)

Based on past Ryder Cup performance, this sets up well for the Europeans. Rose and Stenson are a combined 6-2-2 in Ryder Cup foursomes play, and were 3-0-0 as a team in 2014. The American duo of Spieth and Reed, meanwhile have never won a foursome’s match.

This edge is offset somewhat by form and health issues. Spieth and Reed were both relatively sharp in the PGA Tour playoffs, both reaching the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Neither Rose nor Stenson qualified for the final stage, Rose due to uninspired play and the big Swede due to injury.

Predicted result – Halve
