AUGUSTA, Ga. -- If youre looking for someone not to pick at this years Masters, go with Ryan Moore. By winning the Par 3 tournament, he surely sealed his fate. After all, no one has ever taken the just-for-fun prelude Wednesday and gone on to collect a green jacket Sunday evening. Then again, if there was ever a year to break with tradition, this might be it. Tiger Woods is on the sidelines. A bunch of brash Augusta rookies are eager to fill his shoes. And the last two dozen majors have been divvied up among 21 winners. Good luck making sense of it all with the Masters beginning Thursday. "You never know," Moore said, savoring his two-stroke victory on the picturesque nine-hole course tucked away in a corner of Augusta National. "Someone has got to break that (Par 3) curse at some point in time, so hopefully its me. Who knows? I might go shoot 8 under or something, make a couple of hole-in-ones." As unlikely as that sounds, pretty much everything else is up for grabs at this Masters. Recovering from back surgery, Woods is sitting out the opening major of the year for the first time since turning pro. Even as his dominance waned in recent years, he was always the clear-cut favourite coming into Augusta, where he has won four times. Now, as Moore said, who knows? Jason Day, Sergio Garcia and former Masters champion Zach Johnson are the only players from the top 10 who have won anywhere in the world this year. Only one of the past seven winners on the PGA Tour was ranked in the top 75. "I think if youre outside the top 50 in the world this week, youve got a great chance," U.S. Open champion Justin Rose said with a laugh. Woods is out of golf until the summer, but the show goes on at a tournament that rarely fails to deliver plenty of drama. "We miss Tiger, as does the entire golf world," Masters chairman Billy Payne said. "Nevertheless, this is the Masters. This is what we hope is the best tournament in the world, one of the greatest sporting events. And I think we will have a very impressive audience and have another great champion to crown this year." That could be Phil Mickelson, who last year won the British Open at age 42 and now has a chance to join Woods and Arnold Palmer with a fourth green jacket. It could be Adam Scott, trying to take over as the worlds No. 1 player and join Woods, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus as the only back-to-back winners. While Woods last won a green jacket in 2005, he had finished out of the top six only once since then. Thats what made him such a compelling figure at Augusta. He always seemed to be there. "Its a huge loss," Scott said. "But, as every year here, this event produces something special no matter what. It just has a way of doing it. Its not going to involve Tiger this year, but it will involve someone else and it will be a memorable event anyway." Rose falls on the side of experience -- knowing where to miss, knowing where you cant afford to miss, where the hole locations tend to be on the contoured greens and using the slope to get the ball close. "Always you can have the unknowns," he said. "But I would say 15 guys are pretty strong favourites." Fuzzy Zoeller was the last Augusta rookie to claim the green jacket in 1979, and the only other ones to do it were the first two: Horton Smith and Gene Sarazen. Then again, there are 24 first-timers in the 98-player field, a record (except for the first tournament), and none of them will concede an insurmountable learning curve. Besides, no one is dominating golf at the moment. Jimmy Walker has the most PGA Tour wins (three) this season, but this is his first Masters. Scott had a chance to go to No. 1 three weeks ago at Bay Hill, but he lost a three-shot lead in the final round to Matt Every, who had never won in his career. "Doesnt matter if youve played here once or if youve played here 50 times," said Patrick Reed, who has won three times in the past eight months. "When it comes down to it, its just going to be that whoever is playing the best is going to walk away with the trophy." Who knows? Maybe it will be Moore. Hes certainly not fretting over a supposed curse. "Im not afraid of it," he said.

Mohamed Elneny Jersey .TV Series: Duck Dynasty.Fulham earned the bragging rights in west London as they won 2-0 at Brentford in the Sky Bet Championship on Friday night. Sone Aluko bagged the opener in the first half and Tom Cairney added a late second as Fulham deservedly beat their local rivals at Griffin Park.The result lifts the Cottagers to seventh and the cusp of the play-off places ahead of the rest of the weekends action, while Dean Smiths Brentford stay in 11th in the table. Both sides named unchanged sides following wins last week, with Fulham thrashing Huddersfield 5-0 and Brentford winning 2-0 at fellow west London rivals QPR, but it was the away side who had by far the better of the first half. Kevin McDonald passes the ball under pressure from Josh McEachran Slavisa Jokanovics side dominated virtually from the start, and only some poor finishing and a couple of great saves from Daniel Bentley prevented them from taking the lead sooner.Eventually, though, they did find the breakthrough thanks to Aluko. The former Hull striker had been guilty of missing a few chances, but made up for it after 36 minutes as he poked home at the second time of asking after seeing his initial attempt from the edge of the area saved by Bentley. Scott Malone described Fulham’s win as massive Brentford improved dramatically after the break and finally tested David Button for the first time after 61 minutes. Josh Clarke, who had previously been quiet, finally came alive as the home side countered, charging into the box after a good move before seeing his effort tipped over by the Fulham goalkeeper. And four minutes later, Clarke tested Button again, but Button was more than equal to it as he kept out the Brentford midfielders effort from a narrow angle. Nico Yennaris battles for possession of the ball with Fulhams Ragnar Sigurdsson (left) and Kevin McDonald That was as close as Brentford would come to an equaliser, though, and in truth it was Fulham who saw out the rest of the game in relative comfort, eventually adding a second in stoppage time thanks to Cairneys cool finish after a swift counter-attack.ddddddddddddrentford boss Dean Smith: Dean Smith felt that Brentford’s first-half performance was not good enough We probably had too many five or six out of tens. Last week, we had more seven or eights and if you drop that much at this level, you get beat. I dont think we had to do a lot to be better in the second half as we werent very good in the first half. Theyve got a number of good players in their team and they can always hurt you. I keep saying in this league the first goal is very important and when they got it they could afford to sit deep and hit us on the break.Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic: Slavisa Jokanovic was left very happy after his side recorded back-to-back wins by beating rivals Brentford We showed a very good performance and we showed our progress and in general Im happy for the fans. It was a very good night for us.We played the first 45 minutes very well, we found it harder in the second half but then we got the second late on. Generally we have to be happy with this result.
