Well, it’s 2016 already. And most people on the internet are already tired of the 2016 Presidential election coverage.

In 2012, in the fledgling months of The Wise Guise, I participated in a preview of The Masters. I wrote about my favorite parts of attending The Masters live and provided predictions for the Top 10 golfers to be in the Top 10 on the back nine on Sunday, when it’s well known The Masters truly begins every year. I encourage you to check out that original post in addition to my reflections on Bubba Watson, The Masters, and life on the …
