CBS will be covering the final rounds of the 2012 Masters Tournament on Saturday, April 7th and Sunday, April 8th. The following golfers are who I believe to be the top 6 contenders to compete this week.
Bill Haas made a 40-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a three-man playoff with Phil Mickelson and Keegan Bradley to capture his fourth career PGA Tour title.
Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods played in the second-to-last group, and Mickelson beat him by 11 shots. He won for the fourth time at Pebble Beach, and became only the ninth player in PGA Tour history with 40 wins.
Luke Donald and Phil Mickelson have a real shot at winning the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, but they might a little help from the top ranked FedEx Cup players.
Phil Mickelson has finally changed his putter in his bag, but will continue to work with both putters well into the off-season.
Bubble player Troy Matteson is off to a fast start, Charl Schwartzel is ready for the stretch run after a week off and Phil Mickelson is turning to a belly putter to help his putting woes.

Rory McIlroy finished 25th at the Open Championship. He’s ready to move on to a tournament for which weather isn’t such a factor.
Although Phil Mickelson did not win The Open Championship, his game has finally come back and is now in a position to win some tournaments or even a major or two.
Darren Clarke has won his first major title at the British Open. The 42-year-old from Northern Ireland shot an even-par 70 Sunday that gave him a three-stroke victory over Americans Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson.
We are in the middle of a strange week. Tony LaRussa, who has been managing in the major leagues for 33 years, made some pitching changes in the eighth inning against the Phillies the other night that defied description.
