The 2016 Masters Tournament will be the 80th edition of the Masters Tournament and the first of golf's four major championships to be held in 2016. It will be held from April 7–10 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia.

If you haven't already, I strongly recommend that you check out www.masters.com. Talk about an event and its organizers that take full advantage of every media platform available. The coverage, IMO, is unmatched. I'm sure it will be must see TV on Sunday.

Obligatory picture of last years winner, Jordan Spieth:

And here's a snippet of the final leaderboard:

Some other random stuff:

2006 -7 Phil Mickelson (DD: 1, DA: 36, GIR: 5, Scr: 24, PA: 7)

Last 10 winners were all under 40
Last 10 winners were not the defending champion
Last 10 winners were not the World No. 1
Last 10 winners had made the cut at Augusta the previous year
Last 10 winners had finished T32 or better at Augusta

Jose Maria Olazabal’s win in 1999 remains the last time a European was handed the winner’s green jacket.

Now onto the fantasy side of things.  Our last event, the 97th PGA Championship, BILL won.... (he also won the 2014 PGA fantasy challanege)

Bill: -39
Dan: -33

Adam: -28
James: -23
Sean: -18
Beck: -13
Jeremy: -9
Abe: -1
Paul: +1
C Bunny: +24 (yikes)

This year's Masters draft will be in reverse order of those standings.


The final score of all the players on each team will be added up and the lowest cumulative score wins. Each team will have 4 golfers.

+5 will be added to any players score who misses the cut

-10 will be deducted from the score of the team who picks the Champion

If there is a WD, that player will be given a score of the worst round from that day. And then a one time penalty of +5 (the same penalty a player who misses the cut would get.)

The draft order will be the reverse final standings of the previous major
