Who will win the Masters?
It's crunch time at Augusta and the moment we ask the top pundits to nail their colours to the Masters mast.
After all the talking, cogitating and waxing lyrical, what we want to know is, who is actually going to win the thing?
Statistics will give you a rough guide, though 67% of those are made up. Going with a hunch is another tried and tested method.
So how do you pick a winner? Well, you can start by reading the views of some of the game's top writers and broadcasters.
Ken Brown, BBC golf commentator
Winner: Paul Casey. There's a lot of choice for potential winners this year. If Casey is fit - he had shoulder problems last week - he's got the game for Augusta. He hits it long, and enjoys the course - he says it's one of his favourites.
Since he came back from his previous rib injury he has played some wonderful, really solid golf and got to the final of the World Match Play. If he gets hot he's not frightened to go for it, so he could come good this week.
Big week: Ian Poulter. You've got to think if he can keep on the right level, not get too excited, or too ahead of himself he must be coming in with an amazing amount of confidence.
He's gradually improved over the last three of four seasons. He's been a runner-up in the Open and enjoys Augusta - he's been a few times now and played some good, steady golf. He is a fantastic putter - right at this point in time, if he's not the best, he's one of the best putters in the world.
So if he has a hot week on the greens and doesn't get too excited I'd have to say he has got something of a chance.
BBC golf commentator Peter Alliss is tipping Henrik Stenson for victory
I'm taking the Britons out of the equation because you can chase them along too much and build up hopes. But the two Swedes have power and they are winners.
Whether or not they'll be overwhelmed by the occasion, I don't know. But nobody ever mentions them. Stenson's a big winner, he's got a good caddie and has got the power.
Big week: Robert Karlsson. He has won many times in Europe so he's in with a chance. At 66-1 or whatever him and Stenson are, they are worth a fiver each-way.
Damon Hack, Sports Illustrated
Winner: Angel Cabrera. He's the defender, comes in under the radar, he's tremendously long off the tee and he putts fast, large greens great - he won the US Open at Oakmont in '07 where the greens are similarly fast, undulating and tricky.
He's made of major championship stuff. The guy plays well at big events and he has a great record here at Augusta so I like him to win again.
Big week: Jim Furyk. He's not the longest off the tee but this course has become more US Open-like in the last 10 years or so. He's won already this year, hits a lot of fairways and greens, knows the course very well and his caddie, Mike "Fluff" Cowan was on the bag when Tiger won by 12 in 1997. I think he will finish top five.
John Hopkins, The Times
Winner: Lee Westwood. A brilliant, brilliant driver, solid iron player, good putter at his best and much improved short-game player but most of all quite a redoubtable competitor now. He's been here 13 times or something now. Eleven years ago he held the lead on the 10th tee on the last day so he knows what's going on.
Big week: Steve Stricker. Seems to me if you can putt well you can play well here. His record here doesn't suggest that but he's playing better now than ever before. Very nice fellow and a very good golfer. He's had several ages of his career, but is now the highest he's ever been in the rankings (2nd) and is in the form of his life.
Irrespective of those two wedges he hit in the water last year and made eight on, he still has one of the best short games in the world, especially in these conditions. It's just a feeling I've got.
Big week: Dustin Johnson. Big-hitting kid from Carolina. Won earlier this year. Playing with Alvaro Quiros - if they don't get caught up in a long-driving contest - which they will - I think he'll do great.
Iain Carter, BBC 5 live
Winner: Ernie Els. He's obviously in fantastic form, he's rediscovered his winning touch and has always had a Masters in him. It took brilliance from Phil Mickelson to beat him in 2004, and at the age of 40 he's proved he can still win and is the form man coming in.
Big week: Fred Couples. He's the course specialist. Augusta seems to bring the best out of him. The fact he's won three times on the Champions Tour and had a runner-up spot shows that he's driving well and putting well and they are the most important commodities around Augusta.
Mark Reason, Daily Telegraph
Winner: Retief Goosen. He's got a very good chance as long as his back is OK. He's starting to play well, and he's done well around here. And he'll thoroughly enjoy dissing Tiger.
Big Week: Fred Couples. Tipped by many, including Phil Mickelson. He was at 95-1 until recently. He knows how to play around here, his back should be all right in this sunshine and he looked fantastic when he was playing with Tiger the other day.
Wayne Grady, BBC golf commentator
Winner: Steve Stricker. To me he's the guy to beat. He's already won this year, he's had good preparation and he's the world number two. I'd love to see a British guy win and I'd obviously love to see an Australian, we've never won here and Robert Allenby is our best chance, he's the best ball-striker week-in, week-out but his record here at Augusta is not so good. But Stricker's the man I'd pick.
Several of our pundits think Padraig Harrington will do well
Big week: Ian Poulter. He's playing well, he's cocky enough, he's got that monkey off his back in America by winning the World Match Play, so he's won over here. He's definitely got enough front to do well. And the Italian Matteo Manassero will win the low amateur medal.
Karl McGinty, Irish Independent
Winner: Padraig Harringon. He's most dangerous when his mind is clear and I've rarely heard, seen or understood him to be as mentally uncluttered as he is now. He's going into this championship as strong mentally as I've ever seen him going into a championship and in that form he's dangerous.
Big week: Ernie Els I would expect to do well. Ian Poulter is a good enough putter to prosper out there, to do better perhaps than many others on those greens and that's vital here. Lee Westwood, does he fully believe in his short game yet? He's the only one who will either doubt it or prosper with it. If he does well on or around the greens he could well.
Neil McLeman, Daily Mirror
Winner: Lee Westwood. He's served his time. He's been close a lot and third in the last two majors. He's in good form this year and confident. It's pretty open - the top two [Woods and Mickelson] have got other things on their minds, and he's been closer than the other Britons. Paul Casey arguably has the best game for here and is a good putter but I go with Westwood.
Big week: Ross Fisher. He led here last year , he's long and has a good short game. He's got everything.
Andrew Cotter, BBC 5 live
Winner: Retief Goosen. He was twice a runner-up in 2002 and 2007 and has had five top-six finishes in seven starts on Tour this season. His putting may yet fail him, but a strong contender.
Big week: Lee Westwood. He's playing well (led the field in birdies made in Houston last week) he's in good physical shape and mentally he seems really relaxed but also focused. Not a great record here but his near-things in majors in the last two years stand him in good stead.
Kevin Garside, Daily Telegraph
Winner: Fred Couples. I'll stick my neck out here. I watched him for a few holes with the boy Woods and I was struck by how cleanly he was striking the ball. Many of his contemporaries, not least Phil Mickelson, spoke about how the putter is working like a magic wand again.
He's won around here, knows this place, has experience of it and if his putter is working he's a serious threat. And because I've had a tenner on him .
Big week: Camilo Villegas might have an interesting week here having watched him play a couple of rounds the other day.
Brian Keogh, Irish Sun
Winner: Steve Stricker. He has a very good chance, he's playing really well and had a good finish last year as well. He's due in a major.
Big week: Padraig Harrington. He will go close. He has been knocking on the door here a few times, and he's coming into this with a little bit of form.
He's usually as slow starter but he's started pretty well this season. He seems very comfortable and happy in himself and with all that green dust knocking around the place [from the pine trees] it might be his year.
Peter Dixon, The Times
Big week: Padraig Harrington. He's moving into form nicely but quietly, so in a sense he's coming in under the radar. He fell away a bit last week in Houston but in a sense it's a good thing he didn't win to put too much pressure on himself.
He's had two tops 10s in America this year and he's getting better and better and he's a major champion. He's had problems here before so maybe there are a few skeletons in the cupboard but he's strong enough mentally to get away from those.
Big week: Paul Casey. His confidence is high. He was playing brilliantly before his rib injury and has come back from that and is playing just as well. That's a sign of a player who has really matured and I think Paul is at a stage where he should be looking to challenge at all the big events and I think he could have a big week.
Mark Lamport-Stokes, Reuters
Winner: Ernie Els. He's back to his best and the key is getting his short game back. He's got a new ball which helps around the greens, and his two wins this year have embellished his gung-ho attitude.
Big week: Lee Westwood. If he can get his putter to work. He knows how to handle the pressure of a major coming down the stretch after thirds at the Open at Turnberry and the US Open at Torrey Pines in 2008. He just needs to make that final little step.
Oliver Holt, Daily Mirror
Winner: Ernie Els. Even I'm aware that he's in good form and has won twice in a row so he's got to be my tip.
Big week: Rory McIlroy There's a lot of talk about the Englishmen but I feel McIlroy is a big event player. This could be a breakthrough major for him.
Derek Lawrenson, Daily Mail
Winner: Phil Mickelson. I think the real Phil Mickelson will show up this week and he would be my tip.
Big week: Ernie Els. My big hope is the Big Easy shows up, as he has the last couple of weeks in Florida, and he claims the Green Jacket he so richly deserves.
Rob Hodgetts, BBC Sport website
Winner: Retief Goosen. In very solid form on the PGA Tour with four top 10s in six strokeplay events this year. Missed the cut at Augusta last year but has finished in the top three four times. Course form counts for a lot here, and he's proved he can handle fast greens after winning two US Opens. Time for another major title.
Big week: Fred Couples. He's a proven course specialist with 23 consecutive cuts made and Augusta is a track where those with the extra knowledge and experience always seem to do well. Three wins on the Champions Tour this year show he's playing well and his back is holding up.
This is a step up from that but the 1992 champion didn't let me down as an each-way pick when he tied third in 2006 and I reckon he could do the same again. The old timers will be boosted by the feats of Greg Norman and Tom Watson at the last few Opens, and Kenny Perry here last year. And seeing as it's my blog, I'm also going to pick Tiger Woods. The shackles of his secret life are off and he's too good to discount. And I saw him hit a stunning second shot into 13 on Tuesday.
