The phoney war is over, it is time to get our game faces on. Who is going to win the Masters? Before Phil Mickelson's win at the Houston Open, it was wide open. Now it's wide open with Phil as hot favourite.

Winner: It really is just like the Grand National at Aintree. There are so many here with a pedigree and to pick one out is, well.... there are so many. Of course I hope for a European but it all depends on the occasion - they have got to avoid being overwhelmed by the occasion. It's a cathedral atmosphere out there, without the silence. You go into these bottom corners and there are thousands of people and they're very pro-American, so the Europeans have got to overcome that. I hate picking one but I'll say Luke Donald - they say he's too short to win here, but I don't think so. And he and I are honorary members of Beaconsfield Golf Club so I'll say him.

Big week: The way Martin Kaymer plays is very impressive and although his record here is not great he might surprise some people.

McIllroy hasn't got the nerve to hold lead or be in contention for 4 days I expect him to fizzle away

You would expect Woods, Mickelson and Woodward to have a cracking second day.

Can always hope for this ...

Well McIlroy has had a shocker, which has destroyed his chances of winning the Masters... this year at least...

McIlroy bottled it. Will never get a better chance of winning major and I know it sounds crazy seeing as he still so young but this type of thing has happened with him before and he simply hasn't got the bottle come pressure time

McIlroy dropped 8 shots today. Couldn't hack the pressure

He's 21. Let's not go writing him off yet. The fact that he was in a position like this at his age was impressive enough. He'll learn from this.

Impressive but pressure took its toll.

Tiger Woods ended strongly, could be the return of the great one.

Yes I accepted he is young and noted that but I'm sorry but you don't get too many chances to win major unless you are a special player like Tiger was in his prime. McIlroy has blown 2 chances of majors now when he had it there for taking.
I hope he can turn it around and prove me wrong but I fear he just won't ever hack heavy pressure
