For Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, the list of potential winners at the Masters is smaller than perhaps any other tournament because of the inherent problems of dealing with both the pressure of winning the year’s first major and the difficulty of Augusta National.
“The fact there’s been only one guy who’s won his first time out since 1935 (Fuzzy Zoeller, 1979) says a lot,” Chamblee said. “It takes years to figure that place out. And more than figuring it out, it takes a ridiculous amount of nerves and talent to get it done there.”
