We went undercover with tour players, teachers, and others to get their honest assessment of who they like—and who they don't like—at this year's Masters.

TEACHER: I like the top players at Augusta, but it depends on the weather to an extent. Last year the weather let Rose and Garcia into contention. I don’t like Rory, though. His putting is terrible. He’s got the yips. And his wedge play is awful, too. Jason Day had been awful for a while [before winning a playoff at Torrey Pines for his first tour victory since 2016]. Stenson’s not going to win. Hideki can’t win because he can’t putt. I don’t see a guy who can’t putt winning two years in a row. It could happen, but only if the weather is tough. None of those guys can win an 18-under-par Masters. Sergio [who won a playoff after finishing at nine under last year] certainly couldn’t. So we’re down to Jordan Spieth (above), Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson. Koepka [coming off a wrist injury] isn’t good enough, although he is opportunistic. He’s a basher—the 21st-century pro who plays great three times a year. Then again, he’s oblivious—like Dustin—and that works out well for him. That’s cruel, but true. I like Rickie Fowler, but his problems are mental. He could be like Sergio and just eventually win one when no one expects him to.

Wonder Woman 2: Kristen Wiig confirmed to play villain Cheetah

  Wonder Woman 2: Kristen Wiig confirmed to play villain Cheetah Wonder Woman has a new villain for its sequel. And, man, is she funny. Director Patty Jenkins confirmed on Friday morning that Kristen Wiig is set to play the villain Cheetah in Wonder Woman 2. “So excited to confirm the most thrilling news,” she wrote on Twitter. “Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can’t wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!!” So excited to confirm the most thrilling news. Yes! It’s true! So incredibly lucky to welcome the sensationally talented Kristen Wiig to our Wonder Woman family. Can't wait to finally work with one of my favorites. And SO excited by what we have planned. #Cheetah!!! @GalGadotpic.twitter.com/Gn0jICiIAH— Patty Jenkins (@PattyJenks) March 9, 2018 In DC Comics, the character of Cheetah is feline-esque with strength and speed to make her a worthy adversary against Wonder Woman. News that the Saturday Night Live alum was in talks for the role broke last week. The previous Wonder Woman movie, released this past summer, was one of the biggest critical and commercial hits of the DC Extended Universe film franchise, earning $821.8 million at the worldwide box office.

Assessing The Masters Favorites - Golf Digest. We went undercover with tour players, teachers, and others to get their honest assessment of who they like—and who they don't like—at this year's Masters .

TEACHER: Tiger has inspired a generation of guys who have all become savages. Look at Jon Rahm. He has a backswing and downswing like Trevino. He has a great short game. He expects to make every putt. He’s like a long Trevino—good luck. You’ve got Dustin, who can win playing bad because he’s still better than most guys when they’re good.

MULTIPLE WINNER ON TOUR: Everyone points at Rory’s wedge play and the ball he uses, but it’s the same one Dustin uses, and his wedge play is great.

FORMER TOUR PRO: My heart says Rory if he tidies up his putting and wedge play. He has technical issues in both. He’s so “trapped” with his short irons. He leans on the shaft so much, and the ball comes out on a different flight and spin every time, so it flies a different distance every time and reacts differently when it lands.

Tiger given top spot in Masters odds

  Tiger given top spot in Masters odds Tiger Woods' accelerated comeback has resulted in him being placed atop the odds of taking home a fifth green jacket. With the Masters less than a month away, the 42-year-old has leaped ahead of the world's top two golfers, Dustin Johnson and Justin Thomas, and being given the best odds of winning at Augusta National.

BROADCASTER: We’ve seen the caddie change [by McIlroy last year]. I’m still hoping he drags Billy Foster onto his bag. They would be great together. Billy would be strong enough to say “no” to Rory when required. Also, Billy is funny, and that would keep Rory light.

TOUR CADDIE: Patience is huge. If you start to make mistakes, you start to chase—like Rory did in 2011—and end up making more and more mistakes. I don’t think he would make that same mistake now. He has the ideal game for that course.

TEACHER: Spieth does stand out on that course. His short putting is a problem, though. No one says it, but those are yips, and they’re back. There’s a reason Jordan looks at the hole. He missed three putts inside 2½ feet at the Hero. They were all blocks to the right. That’s the big question in his game, but only short-term. Jordan’s like Langer, who has had yips his whole career but is still a great putter. Jordan’s resourceful and not scared to try things. He’s got an issue, but he’ll find a way to putt well. Rory’s pretending there’s nothing wrong. He’s not even close to figuring it out.

Tigermania returns to PGA Tour

  Tigermania returns to PGA Tour Tiger Woods is back and so are the galleries as the 14-times major winner sent a jolt of excitement through the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Thursday, carding a four-under 68 that had the crowd around Bay Hill Golf Club buzzing. After a long absence from the game as he dealt with back issues, Woods's comeback and return to form have energized golf in ways not seen since he dominated the sport.Tigermania was back at Bay Hill as Woods climbed to the top of the early first-round leaderboard when he rolled in a monster 71-foot birdie putt on the seventh to spark a massive roar from the crowd.

Paths and projects. To start, you'll take an online assessment to help you decide which path is right for you. These 10 paths are available to you

TEACHER: If Jordan’s capability on a given day is 68-72, he shoots 69, not 71 or 72. He make more 15-to-25-foot putts than anyone, and you get a lot of those at Augusta.

TEACHER: DJ can’t turn it over well enough. He can hit it left to right all day, but the doglegs going the other way will find him out.

MAJOR CHAMPION: If Bubba finds some form in the first half of the year, he’s one of the clear favorites. He loves the course. Hideki carries such a weight of expectation in every major. Dustin won’t notice any of that, of course. The big question mark over all of those guys—except Jordan—is, can they putt well enough to win? He’s the only one who beats you with his putter. Justin Rose isn’t going to. Nor is Sergio. Adam Scott, no. Jason Day might.

TEACHER: I question the size of Fowler’s heart. Right now, his swing has to be completely on for it to work. He relies so much on rhythm and timing—the things that go under pressure.

TOUR CADDIE: Rickie plays well there and always seems to have a chance. I want to see what Dustin can do [after missing the 2017 Masters with an injury].

TEACHER: I like lefties—Mickelson. They have a big advantage on that course.

In-form Tiger one of many reasons to watch this year's Masters

  In-form Tiger one of many reasons to watch this year's Masters When a patron first arrives at Augusta National, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with choice. Do you walk - but never run - to Amen Corner to get a prime position for the afternoon drama? Or perhaps zip to the concession stand to get a pimento cheese sandwich and a beer? Or, do you accept that all the traditions you’ve heard so much about will be there for the balance of your 10-or-so hour day and get the merchandise shopping out of the way first? With Tiger Woods making Augusta National the next stop on his impressive comeback, golf fans sitting at home have the same cornucopia of choice when it comes to this year’s Masters as those who are lucky enough to attend the event itself.

FORMER TOUR PRO: Few are better tee to green than Tommy Fleetwood. So all he has to do is putt well. The same with Justin Thomas.

TOUR CADDIE: Everyone points at how important the chipping is, but Westy [Lee Westwood] has done well there, albeit without pulling on a jacket. You can play ’round it, if you hit the ball well enough. The most important thing on the greens is speed. Westy has that, which is why his record is surprisingly good. He doesn’t make a lot of putts, but he doesn’t three-putt often, either.

FORMER TOUR PRO: If I look at all of the top players, they all have parts of Tiger in his prime, but none of them have it all. They all have an obvious weakness.
