and welcome in here as this is going to be your 2020 Masters, I would say pregame coming into this.
Really? Uh, so far, the Masters only comes around once a year, and due to these cove in 19, it's really pandemic throughout.
It has really pushed back the normal regulations for this tournament.
But so far we should see something very interesting.
Especially the followed color trees shadowing over Amen corner as this should be a very interesting and ah, very debate ful match.
Of course, we have a bunch of contenders which we will get Thio in the predictions.
But of course, we need to start off with the storylines because we need to know what we're going through.
But this is your 2020 master storylines, predictions and game plan with Josh Groban.
So, like, I want Thio.
Welcome in here.
This is the storylines we're gonna be entering here today.
So far, there's a bunch of storylines here.
But let's go with our 10.
Just put in the track.
Grand storylines for Conte Conte masters So far, you know.
Let's just start off with that So far, these air things look out right now, but so far. Of course.
The muscle, of course.
The macho man of golf, Bryce and the Shamble coming in.
Can he take down this course so far? Now, this is the point where you get a little skeptical right now.
Of course, you start off with the first hole.
That is a easy right down the middle shot.
Thank you so much.
Quote Lynn and Doctor John B.
Thank you so much.
Lynn and Johnny for coming in here.
But so far, let's get into it right now.
The shamble, of course.
As they say, one of macho man's of golf so far.
Price in the shamble.
If you see the first three holes coming up first ones a straight one right down the middle.
Of course, it's very tough one.
And especially in Tiger Woods words, The first soul.
If the winds Nice.
It's an easy whole.
This win with, of course, the tropical storm coming in will not be nice.
It will be a disaster, an absolute disaster for these golfers.
Maybe a little fun for us on the other side.
But so far Bryson Shambo.
Then you look at the second hole, the second hole is a par five, which, if you can just bend the shot, then he's got a perfect shot at.
I thought, basically the green so he can have to contend there from Eagle.
But of course, we cannot forget the 300 Onley, 300 yard, 345 yard Masters third hole, par four Bryce into Shambo can really come out taking down that whole if he can.
Really? Of course.
Bryce in the Campbell coming off his US Open one at Winged Foot, we saw his ability to fight for the rough at Winged Foot.
This Augusta National is really going to bring it.
Coming in with breast in a shamble right now should be interesting.
But so far, of course, the phenomenal season of breast in the shape of the phenomenal way that he's came out this season.
He wants a Masters.
Historic could really hang on for a while.
Tiger Woods has done it before, but can he do it now at, Of course, his age.
Tiger Woods will be returning as the defending champion.
This is your second storyline today now, of course, and this prime Masters titles defenses.
Woods has finished 8th, 1st, 15th and furred.
But, of course, taking down five Masters wins.
So, of course, very comfortable with the course.
And we all remember Jack Nicholas at the age of 40 46 pretty sure 49 46.
Um, taking on the Masters and pulling off the victory So far, Tiger Woods is always a contender when it comes to the Masters.
We didn't expect them that time.
He came into the Tour Championship saying, I have not practiced in a while.
Of course, my back issues.
I cannot do anything right now.
And he came out and won the Tour championship.
Anything high expectations all around.
But of course, the master is definitely one that we will not forget.
Course some of his father passing what you did hug on on his first Masters victory.
Hey, got a chance to hug his son.
Just definitely, very interesting story.
And I believe that that should be a top storyline forever.
Really, So far Tiger Woods, of course, bringing on one of the main Masters victories that we should all remember.
But so far this guy really Tiger Woods has really take on some struggles this season, of course, coming into one of his favorite tournaments to Memorial and just straight up on the drain, he made the cut when he made it by one.
He got lucky because most of the players at the top, they were doing as well on the back nine and everything fell into place.
So he made the cut to move on to Saturday and Sunday.
Point is, Tiger Woods really needs to get his game together if he's going to contend right now for a defending championship.
Four. Tiger Woods.
But that's your second story.
Let's get to the third one.
I love this story line because Roy McIlroy is going for the Grand Slam again.
Now, if you guys aren't that familiar with the Grand Slam, if you win the four major tournaments US Open, PGA Championship and I'm sorry you are some from PGA Championship and the Open, the British Open and, of course, the Masters.
That's a grand slam.
Basically, Rory McIlroy, of course, from Northern Ireland, picked up that open victory pretty easy for sure.
Then came the U.
Open, winning at marathon big time when there and, of course, is to PGA Championship victories coming in Kiawah Island's and then going back again and taking on that challenge so far and just making sure that everyone Kiawah Island's will be the next host PGA Championship.
So be sure to watch that.
And if Roy Memory could pull it off again, McIlroy all he has left is the Masters.
So this is where it comes to your little bandwagon for the week.
Do you want? Of course, everyone's gonna want Tiger Woods pull it off.
41 Price in the shamble.
Who wants to have the most memorable season most memorable golf season in his life? Or you could go over the Roy McAvoy who's going for the Grand Slam, which would be up with Gary Player Jack Nicholas in a bunch of utter stars, especially Ben Hogan and, of course, the main Tiger Woods, Roy Mac.
Or it could be that next guy.
So that is your third storyline today, but so far he has been going back and forth and back before.
But can he pull it off? That's your first story line so far so far.
Now it's going to our fourth story line here course the Lost Boys, as they call them, the two most notable Jordan speak.
And Phil ****elson, of course, coming in.
Phil ****elson had a phenomenal basically life in golf 2013, taking old a open championship and Jordan's beef doing as well with the U.
These these guys air like two guys air so debatable back and forth.
You know that there is a good projection that they're going to make the cut, but their strength and golf cannot take him all the way.
It's something that you really watch out for.
Thank you so much, Dale for coming in. Thank you so much.
Johnny and Lynn, standing in the broadcast, says, We got a lot to talk about here today, but so far, Jordan speed.
You see this guy as a star? You see, this guy is a big time guy, of course, coming from Texas.
And then he came out and then you're like, this guy's insane.
Every single iron shots. Perfect.
Now what are we saying now? If he just gets that club one more inch decide, it's a chunk.
That's literally what it is, because every single shot.
It's not on rhythm.
Nothing's on rhythm.
Aaron. Phil ****elson.
Well, as set a remember herbal quote in 2016, I will get ready to go to the PGA Champions League, which is for the elderly golfers.
I will be sure to go to the PGA Championship Champions League when I stop in bombs, but I'm print.
But he said, I'm handsome, pretty sick bombs right now, and that's that's mainly is always personality, for sure.
But as we did hear that, he did sign up for the PGA Champions.
So, I mean, what's his calm? And he did just turned 50.
Is this the last of fell that we're seeing? This is gonna be a storyline that will go on for a while.
Phil ****elson could pull off the Masters, and Jordan's beef does.
This could start the rally course, the lost rally in Francesco Molinari in 2018, who won the Open and that close to winning the Masters.
Never since that he's had six miss cuts, no top tens and not a single one after at 2019 Masters.
But so far, of course, people prepping for this, of course, some some of the guys here a little upset because their first ever Masters will not have any fans and a different time.
Matthew Wolf, so far on son J M are some of the big time guys here that actually could take their chances up to the eyes limit.
Really? So far, we're seeing a lot of things coming in from these young guys.
Matthew Wolf came out and won the free I'm open Sunday, Um, came out and won the Honda Classic, which I was there at.
And the thing is watching that guy in person, he's such a professional golfer.
He holds the club, pauses, regenerates himself and then go through it.
So so far, this guy has the potential right now and I would not be surprised.
And I'm gonna back off son jm right now, even though son J m.
I believe he will make the cut.
But Matthew Wolf has a good chance.
If you've seen this guy, this guy basically before every swing, he does this with the shoulders every single time.
Then when he swings, he flings it up into the air and then comes down with it.
One of the weirdest swings we've ever seen but starts out like that and then just flings it like that and then goes down.
It's something very weird that the golf world has never experienced before.
But also its interest, of course.
Who taught him who taught him up to that ability to pull it off.
So that's definitely interesting biding Matthew.
Well, of course, one the longest drivers could pull it off.
So right now they are some guys toe watch out for before they were, um, a good range.
A good range at Oklahoma State.
Not there. I'm sorry.
Matthew Wolf and Victor Holland, As I say as I mean there, um, there are a very good range when they were playing at that level.
But you're competing up against the Masters right now.
You got the insane and the insane shots you're gonna hit over. Amen.
Corner 11, 12, 13.
And of course, really, every single hole is memorable.
I can't just pick one out.
This is a beautiful golf course, and we're going to see something different at one o'clock today on ESPN.
So be sure Thio mark your calendars there tomorrow.
One o'clock ESPN will be streaming in all day.
There will be the Masters SportsCenter with the Masters on ESPN And be sure to check that out, but so far already gone through the young superstars.
Now let's go through first or second.
So far, of course, people have projected Jon Rahm had a great range throughout this.
But Jon Rahm has not came to that precise content that everyone's going to be at.
I don't have gone Ron pulling this off, but if anyone did see that shot, I want you to look that up after the show.
Basically, he has shot flat face.
And basically, when he hit it, it trickled over the water.
Basically that skipped over the water and got on the green, came in form and in one hole, skipped over the water.
As I'm saying this and now I'm actually losing some viewers right now because they're gonna go check that out right now, but s so far really first or second so far.
Names like John wrong.
Patrick can't lay Xander softly.
Tommy, Fleetwood, Tony Female had a few months out.
Sorry about the do***entation.
Now, these air top players when Augusta National.
But of course, the do***ents.
Yeah, of course.
having that sad, sad time I am at the players where he pulled off a phenomenal and I'm telling you phenomenal.
And I'm pretty sure all my viewers here just checked out that shot that he had.
So thank you for coming back here.
Thank you so much, Richard, for coming back.
I'm sorry joining us here, joining us here in the broadcast here.
As right now, we're still going over here to storylines here.
I think everything is going on.
We've already gone over.
Tigers defending champion.
What can you do? Their pricing.
The shambo first three holes should be easy for him.
And why? And of course, the down slope of it.
And Roy McIlroy going for a grand slam to win the US Open Open PGA Championship.
And the only one who doesn't have is that Masters.
And you could win that Grand Slam course store and speak from Phil ****elson can have a shot in this and the young superstars so far worth the 1st and 2nd so far.
Let's go over here with the revenge story.
Now everyone's saying right now that Francesco Molinari is a revenge story.
I'm going to disagree with you because the Onley guys from pulling off a top season right now is Tony female.
I just think about this.
Tony Female has been a contender throughout this season.
Making basically has come back after this.
Francesco Molinari slowed down, took a lot of time off after when he lost the Masters.
So of course, Tiger was in 2019.
Well, who else? Loss? Who else was in that group? Afraid that man was 20? FINA, 20 fi now can really pull this off and I'm serious about this.
He can really pull this off.
All he has to do is put that extra effort into, and I bet you Tony Fidel will be at the top of the list.
Such a phenomenal player.
This guy will definitely come toe work pulled us off, but that is an early prediction there to put that in.
But so far, here are some groups stuck on a major win.
Here's some groups that need one right now.
Justin Thomas on Scott, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Webb Simpson, Patrick Reed, Jason Date, But sadly, Sergio Garcia was one of those guys, but he did test positive for Kobe, 19, so he cannot be in the Masters, but so far working with See those guys we're going to see and I'm gonna rain come right now so far with those guys.
Dustin Johnson, Number one.
Jason Day Number two He didn't really go to Houston note, but I think you can pull it off.
Justin Thompson for free.
Justin Rose number four, but Simpson number five.
That's why I got so yeah, I think that that should be very interesting there.
But so far, Dustin Jobs has always been on my mind.
He took out the Houston Houston Open.
He just got there right next to the lead, the confession off.
But that does show you that that preparing for this big event here.
So here's your next story line.
This is another guard did very good.
The Houston Open.
Brooks Capta Brooks, Capital, of course, known for always doing good in majors, but, of course, is a serious limp that he's had last couple of days, really keeping them back.
Of course, remember, PGA Championship got really close their toe in free and Royal Funeral PGA Championships, but so far is Brooks back because he back in shape.
Can he really pull this off? And I bet you he will be the one of the top contenders that you see up there because really, so far he did great in Houston Open and really, we don't see that out.
Brooks on a PG on the PGA Let's say course that that shows a point effort ID the way because usually does not put that much work into a PGA torque.
Lets say, tournament.
Now you're seeing the effort out Brooks.
And this is why Brooks is gonna be a top contender.
Toe Watch out for and of course, did lose the Masters.
Last year he was in second place.
This guy's a shot and watch out, and I believe that Brooks was back there.
And that's one story line there now the water effects.
This is gonna be interesting.
So far, Chipping so far will be very trickier because the Bermuda grass has not died off yet.
That was something we got from McIlroy.
Um, of course, this will probably favor the big hitters, so watch out again and rice into Shambo There gotta watch out for and so far, fairways.
But does that mean that this will be a sloppier but than usual.
People have asked that a lot.
People have asked.
The tree's gonna Is there gonna be, like, falling leaves coming down there all brown like that? Just is this fairway gonna be growing with, like, a bunch of, like, you know, like Gray coming? I'm sorry.
Brown coming out of the grass like that.
Are we going to see a change? And I'm just consistent very quickly.
Nothing can change Augusta National's beauty so far.
That's why I've learned for a while nothing can change Augusta National's beauty.
This really? I'm I'm I'm betting you right now.
I'm betting on this.
Um, that they're going to put the most hardest working people toe work, and they're gonna make sure this course is in tip top shape.
That is what I'm telling you right now.
But so far, let's get into our next one.
Because we need hurry to stop.
Of course, we need predictions.
And of course, the final one are quick game plan here on what? To see No patrons, no people, no people, no people.
Course seeing at the Houston Open there were actually people there, which is something that we really haven't seen this phone entire time.
But the Masters is used as a place for excitement.
You get that upbeat there.
There's a reason those stands there.
There on the par 3/16 there is a reason that Amen corner that you can see the green on the 12 and the green on the 11th with a bunch of fans there with those stands, there is a reason that when Phil ****elson hit that shot behind the tree, there were roars.
No people there, we like no water will be peace for.
It'll be peaceful.
You'll actually hear the birds, which obvious.
Surprised to hear that, but so far will be very interesting to watch.
But it's going to our final story line.
Then we'll get to Predictions Co.
19 testing So far.
The coronavirus, uh, in the Master so far has already hit course young player Joaquin Niemann Newman withdraw from the Masters after testing positive.
Same exact thing for Sergio Garcia.
Sergio Garcia came in and right away came right out due to the coronavirus course coming off of that phenomenal Standards Championship one, but that But that's not the standard.
We see Sergio Garcia, of course, one of the Masters.
You want to see that phenomenal guy goto work? You want to see him try to pull this off? Because I mean he Sergio Garcia, this guy's making the move.
So far, this guy has been on the PGA Tour or what's the PJ for so long? It's kind of really deserves it.
And really, really tough.
But, sir, but it has been among 30 to 35 players that are mostly to contact the Masters that they have tested positive.
So what we see so far, But so far, there's actually a late article right now, and I'm very sorry I did that.
So actually, it was only Neiman Garcia and about three others, so so far as we got right now.
But right now, let's go here.
Through our predictions here so far, our predictions were gonna call out a bunch of guys.
We're gonna call out underdogs.
We're gonna call out a lot here, but so far, let's start out here as I gonna be calling out.
Very predictions here is I'm going to start out.
Yes, Bryce in the Shambo will win the 2020 Masters, and I know people have heard that a lot that he is the favorite here stink.
These weather conditions that we're gonna see are gonna favor long drivers.
And we've heard that a bunch of times.
So Bryson DeChambeau should take that run second place.
I'm going with a tie here out of three people.
Either one of them could pull it off, but it has to be one of them.
Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson or Xander softly.
That's why he's so far.
And I'm just saying, out of all those Brooks, Capta does have a shot at this, so be sure to watch out for him.
And then Patrick can't way I have next.
This guy is a definite starter.
Watch out for right and you say favors long drivers.
I would go straight with Matthew Wolf if he was in at least a long career.
That's why I got so far.
He would be great at it, but that's just point.
There is just he's not up there on my list, but s so far.
Here's my big time bad here course.
Rory McIlroy will be in that top 10, but here's someone that is going to be in that top tonight.
I'm putting up there.
Bubba Watson will make the top 10 here for Masters.
Now, here's the storyline for you, Bub.
Uh, Bubba Watson.
So far, if he wants the Masters, that is his third Masters win.
That is gonna put them up there big time.
What's on the top names? Arnold Palmer.
That will even one more left tying Arnold Palmer.
Four Masters wins so far.
Let's go here. Of course.
A guy that everyone's talking about. Jon Rahm.
I don't think John Graham is gonna pull it off.
I think that Jon Rahm will make it outside of the top 10.
I think that he will be outside the top 10.
This is a serious pick that I got.
And here's one of my sleeper picks here.
So far, this guy has never missed a cut at the Masters and listen to his teeth of Green.
Game is professional now, of course.
Um, there has been a lot of value in this guy, but so far this guy I saw is 200 toe one in the project and the projections.
Still, this is my sleeper pick here.
That's gonna be a big guy there.
Um, let's just lock in the top 10 there.
I already told you, Bubba Watson, and take off clock in the top 10.
I'm gonna go with Dustin Johnson there thus and Johns will be in my top 10 lakh there.
He will make sure that you will get in now.
Stars who will definitely won't win.
I was looking at this one for a while.
I don't want to call out anyone, Really? But so far, definitely.
I'm seeing these people at the bottom and I'm saying bottom of the list.
And, uh, well, no, no, it definitely won't make it.
Let's not through bottom of little sister.
Do not make the cut.
I'm sadly going to go.
Everyone's having all these high expectations on speed.
I don't think he's going to go anymore with this.
He definitely He definitely won't win this.
And I'm very Don't sit up so far.
The top five in order breaks into Shambo, and I'm gonna put Xander softly, uh, in front of Dustin Johnson Brooks Capture Brooks Scepter is gonna take home the fourth, and that may be ties, but still, um, Brooks Capital take on the floor.
Bryson shambles will take home the first.
Dustin Johnson will take home the fifth and Patrick can't Lay will take him the Furred and Xander softly.
We rent metal there, but watch out for Bubba Watson again favors long drivers.
If we do not remember, um, this guy is a top gotta watch out for, so they show you that.
Now let's do another one here as the Windows.
Let's do Let's do a couple here on who has chance of winning with a Su here.
Winner rocks. Capta.
Let's go with that.
It's gonna be one of my one to share already, said Breast.
Let's put the number of another winner for for in our hands in a circle.
It's gonna perform phenomenal at the Houston Open, and he put in a serious grit, a serious, serious aggression to try to win that tournament.
Not saying Brooks threw down a while.
There's something definitely watch.
Surprise wars. Let's go to sleep with pick here.
Um, I noticed that we got a couple guys back, but right now I'm going to go quickly with this guy.
Justin Rose watch out for him.
Watch out for him.
Watch out for this guy.
This guy could coming out of nowhere.
And I realized that people maybe a little mad at me right now because Tiger Woods is not on my top here.
We'll get to him in just a second here, but so far, Justin Rose's gotta watch out for, um so far along, I just add another sleeper in there.
Scotty Scheffler, So far, this guy is definitely serious.
And I bet you this is gonna be our out of nowhere guy are out of nowhere guy Scotty, Chef, Or could really pull this off.
And I believe that he has the temptation do it.
But so far by top 10 lakh ZZ Patrick can't lay take on the order stars who will definitely won't when again, really don't want to say it really don't want to go crazy about it, But I have Thio.
If the people are here to see some crazy prediction Ego Patrick Reed.
Patrick Reed has been what I see.
A person just left here like Oh, no, that's it.
No, Patrick read so far, he is a guy that's a been watched for a while.
But what has he done during that time? He's done nothing.
Patrick Reed is now.
I've got people leaving.
Okay, we got some read fans in there.
Well, Zobar, um, school for this one more time here.
Uh, well, we're really We're just finishing up here.
Now we're going to go straight to the game plan.
But right now, no one more winter, one more winner.
And that's gonna be surprised.
One here, that is going to be Patrick can't lay.
That my sleeper pick here? Just you. One more.
Ah, sleeper pick here.
Let's see s so far, some guys up there, I'll be sure to watch out.
They will pull it off.
But so far, of course, you know I'm going to go to insane one here.
I'm going to go with a seriously insane one here.
And I know no one's gonna agree with me here until they actually see in.
Who thought Sergio Garcia was gonna win nobody for the Masters? Nobody.
Well, Doc, Tiger Woods was gonna win Nobody.
There are a bunch of guys out there that of one, and that they are over 40 even 50 years old.
But I'm gonna go with the most insane big of all time.
Mike Weir, the Canadian.
This guy on the PGA Champions League has put up a top performance that we usually don't see a lot.
Now, if Mike were wasn't the guy in this out go job, you're because my serious sleeper.
But I believe that this guy has a top chance here.
So I was gonna be one war there, and we'll do one more sleeper picking that will be done.
Let's just do one.
Uh, let's just you will say to to to not enough free free will go free.
Surprised predictions number one Tiger Woods will be your surprise prediction there.
Tiger Woods, Of course.
Um, this guy is, of course, a very phenomenal player, and I wouldn't back to back Masters would really put you in shock for for really a while.
But so far I got Tiger Woods their second.
Phil ****elson, people saying he's done If he could pull off this one today we can see more fill points Mawr on more and more championships on that.
We definitely something toe watch.
But that my final surprise production Bubba Watson, Everyone was surprised in here that I put them in my top 10 lakh bubble. Watson.
You're going to those long drivers out there.
Serious long drivers.
That's the move on the watch out for.
But so far, this is definitely gonna be something toe watch out for so far.
Watch out for the breaking record.
The lowest round ever held up at Augusta National's A 64 minus eight.
And I bet you the person that will be breaking that it's a record so far will be breast in Shambo.
Guys, come out is performed.
But so far, let's just go over the game plan here on what we got.
But I'd like to think, uh, Lin John E.
Dale Richard digs so much fast for staying in the broadcast here.
Of course, everyone's getting hyped for this big day, but so far, here's the game plan here.
Bryce in the Shambo will be the star of the first five holes.
First off five opening holes.
And then you're going to see more, um, Tiger Woods at the end of his round, basically, and I think that he's gonna pull off a stellar 16 full shot so far, and then I'm predicting that we're gonna have a big, big I'm going to say right, really, even though there's no fans really a riot when rocks? Capta Dad, I bet you ESPN will keep going back to that.
Brooks Koepka starts filing out to Bourke, too.
Two birdies in a role and I'm going to go a serious prediction here.
Five under on the back nine.
So those their predictions coming in so far.
Bubba Watson So far, I think he's going to start very slow and then he'll gain.
But so far as the very wise Byron Nelson said, the only way to win it's tournament.
It's not aimed at the flagstick, the aim, it the green.
And that is exactly what Tiger Woods did toe one his Masters.
And there's a good chance that he will.
Very good at doing that. Phil ****elson.
Very good at doing that.
But we all know who has a strong iron game.
And that is Mr Bryson to Shambo as came out multiple back and forth times.
So that's gonna do it here for my broadcast.
I'd like to thank everyone who came in here for the broadcast here.
Of course, a big time, Uh, Thursday approaching us, of course.
Right back where I'm trying to go for the Grand Slam.
Tiger Woods trying to defend Master Championship.
And it's all coming down surrounding one guy Bryce into Shambo.
Can you pull it off? And I've heard some people say that they got John Ron pulling this off, but I don't think so.
So far, I think you'll actually make it outside the top 10.
We'll see Preston shamble pull off the wind.
Those are my 2020 Masters storylines, predictions.
And finally this game plan for ESPN on how they're going to cover all of this madness here at Augusta National.
My name is Josh Groban.
They care for coming in here.
Like to thank quote Lynn.
Dr Giambi, Texas guy Cowboys love Richard.
Thanks so much. Richard.
