Okay, the Masters again pulled off the stunning feat of making golf edge-of-your-seat exciting. Great stuff. Now, at the fun week at Hilton Head, I predict a bout of nostalgia as some of the veteran players who haven’t particularly played well for a while, ages 39 and above, make a run at the title and remind us they can still play. Look for at least three or four of the following to all be in the top 15: Davis Love, Justin Leonard, Scott Verplank. Lee Janzen. John Daly, David Duval, Jose Maria Olazabal, Fred Funk, Rocco Mediate, Rich Beem, Chris DeMarco, and Billy Mayfair.

Oddly enough for such a tight course, John Daly may well be the one to make a real run at the title. Whether he can hold up through a final round in contention remains to be seen, but watch him there well into the front nine on day four.

You heard it here first.
