My favorite major to watch is ______, because ________.
It’s never too soon to start dreaming about the majors.
They’re the most significant, most exciting, most fun events to watch in all of golf.
But of the big four: The Masters, the PGA Championship, the U.S. Open and the British Open, which is your favorite to watch (there are certainly others in the ladies and amateur game, as well)?
Since the first major of 2020 – the Masters – is seven months away, we figured now was as good a time as any to ask our @CaddieNetwork Twitter followers to fill in the blanks to this sentence:
