The field wins Masters poll

So, the majority of votes (75 percent) say the rest of the field will don the green jacket after a victory in this week's Masters.

Here's who the other choices were:

  • Phil Mickelson is a popular pick among the experts, especially after his win last week in Houston. He's using two drivers like he did to win the Masters in 2006.
  • Martin Kaymer is the top-ranked player in the world, but has never made the cut at Augusta National.
  • Lee Westwood finished runner-up to Mickelson last year. The No. 2 player in the world has come close to picking up his first-ever major championship on many occasions.
  • Tiger Woods can never, ever be discounted as a threat to regain the his 2000-09 form. Counting the two majors he tallied before the breakout 2000 season, Woods has 14 in total and could awake from the post-scandal hibernation that's left him searching for a victory in any tournament.
Of course, the rest of the field choice includes Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, past U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen and everyone else. There was a time when it was just Woods vs. the field. Those days are over, but it should be an exciting week.

And since Augusta National is famous for a certain par-3 during Amen Corner, the latest poll asks which is the best/most memorable par-3 in golf.
