AUGUSTA, Ga. Jose Pedro Fuenzalida Jersey . -- A quick stroll across the manicured landscape of Augusta National afforded a glimpse of why this Masters is so hard to figure out. On the putting green in a quiet moment of practice was 20-year-old Jordan Spieth, one of a record 24 newcomers who has every reason to believe he can win. On the golf course for the final day of practice was Webb Simpson, a former U.S. Open champion and one of 21 players who have captured the last 24 majors. And under the oak tree outside the clubhouse was Miguel Angel Jimenez, the 50-year-old Spaniard trying to make sense of it all. He recalled his first Masters in 1995, when Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal shared secrets to Augusta National, such as keeping the ball in the right spots on the green and "to realize here that the target is not the hole." "The more you play, the more you like, no?" Jimenez said as he leaned against his golf bag, looking relaxed as ever behind his aviator sunglasses. But as he considered the rookies -- Spieth and Patrick Reed, Harris English and Jimmy Walker -- he dismissed the notion that experience was required for a green jacket. "There are 24 guys here for the first time," he said. "But theres a reason they are here, no?" Nowhere to be found, of course, was Tiger Woods. Out of golf until the summer because of back surgery, out of the Masters for the first time in his career, the show goes on. "Well, we miss Tiger, as does the entire golf world," Masters chairman Billy Payne said. "He is always a threat to make a run and do well and win here at Augusta National. ... 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." The course closed for practice Wednesday afternoon, and a stream of fans made their way over to the Par 3 Tournament, where occasional cheers broke the silence. It was a precursor of what was sure to follow over the next four days at a major that rarely fails to deliver drama. Even without Woods. "Its probably the most anticipated week of the year," Rory McIlroy said. "Its been eight months since weve had a major. Its Augusta. ... Theres a lot of guys that seem like once they drive up Magnolia Lane here, something lights up inside them." 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 join Woods, Nick Faldo and Jack Nicklaus as the only back-to-back winners. Considering how this year has gone, it could be anybody. 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. Only one of the last 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. Rose, however, 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." Woods has become a polarizing figure in golf, especially at the Masters. Since he last won a green jacket in 2005, only once has Woods finished out of the top six. Thats what made him so compelling at Augusta. He always seems to be there. And thats why this Masters seems to lack definition. No one is dominating golf at the moment. 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 in the world 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. Never has there been this much chatter about Masters rookies. Then again, there has never been this many. And theyre not bashful about their chances. "Doesnt matter if youve played here once or if youve played here 50 times," Reed said. "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." So maybe its not that hard to figure out, after all. Pablo Hernandez Chile Jersey . Once he got the ball, he knew he had to take the last shot. Fortunately for the Philadelphia 76ers, it went in at the buzzer. Adama Traore Barcelona Jersey .J. Watt is a unanimous selection as The Associated Press NFL Defensive Player Of The Year for 2014. http://www.soccerauthentic.com/chile-jorge-valdivia-jersey/ . Wallace played in 58 games in his first season with the Celtics before the operations on Tuesday. The 13-year veteran averaged 5.1 points and 3.7 rebounds in 24.4 minutes after coming from Brooklyn as part of the deal that sent Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets.Brandon Morrow tries for his first road win since June 2012 when the Toronto Blue Jays go for a three-game sweep of the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. Morrow didnt get a decision at Minnesota on Tuesday when he allowed four hits and two runs in 3 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander saw the Blue Jays win, 9-3, but Morrow was removed after throwing 98 pitches on the cold night at Target Field. Hes 1-3 with a 3.92 ERA in 12 games (6 starts) against the Indians. Morrow is 0-5 over his last eight road starts and hasnt won an away contest since June 6, 2012 when he tossed a two-hit shutout against the White Sox. Carlos Carrasco counters on the hill for the Indians. The righty is seeking his first win as a starter since June 29, 2011 at Arizona. Carrasco snapped a personal nine-game skid with a relief victory against the Angels on Aug. 20 last season, but he has taken either a no-decision or a loss in each of his last 15 starting assignments. In his last start, on April 11 versus the White Sox, Carrasco gave up six hits and five runs in 4 2/3 innings to lose for the second time in as many starts this season. His lone appearance against the Blue Jays resulted in a hefty loss when he surrendered seven hits and five runs in just three innings. The Indians have left 19 men on base through the first two games of this set and are in danger of being swept by the Blue Jays for the first time since May 3-5, 2010, with that series also taking place in Cleveland. On Saturday, Dioner Navarro drove in three runs to back another stellar start from Mark Buehrle in a 5-0 final. Buehrle (4-0) spun seven-plus scoreless innings, surrendering just four hits and three walks while striking out three to remain unbeaten on the season. The veteran left-hander has given up just two runs in four starts this year. "Hes just locked in right now," Toronto manager John Gibbons said of Buehrle. "One thing about Buehrle is he pitches to win. He doesnt pitch for stats. You get guys in this game who pitch for stats, he pitches to win and you need more guys like that." Jose Bautista added an RBI and two runs scored and Jose Reyes, whod been on the disabled list since aggravating a left hamstring injury on Opening Day, also knocked in a run for the Jays, who had lost two straight before claiming Fridays series opener. Cleveland starter Corey Kluber (1-2) yielded all five runs -- four earned -- on nine hits and three walks over 6 2/3 frames to absorb his first home loss since May 31, 2013 against Detroit. Asdrubal Cabrera recorded one of the four hits for the Indians, who have lost three straight and seven of their last nine games overall. "You just cant fall into the frustration and letting that affect you," Cleveland manager Terry Francona said of his teams recent struggles. "Its easy in this game (to get frustrated) and were going to have to fight through that." Cleveland won four of the six meetings last season.
