Paul McGinley is expecting next months Masters to be one of the most closely contested in recent history with so many players having a realistic chance at the first major of the year. Nick Van Exel Jersey . Adam Scott has been in the best form of the worlds top 10 over the last month, following up his second-placed finish at Riviera with back-to-back victories in the Honda Classic and the WGC-Cadillac Championship in Florida.But two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, who pipped Scott at the Northern Trust Open, has also enjoyed an excellent start to the year while defending champion Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are expected to be in contention on Sunday afternoon at Augusta. Adam Scott has finished second, first and first in his last three starts Ideally, all the players want to be where Adam Scott is right now, McGinley told Sky Sports News HQ. Hes gone second-win-win in his last three starts, and thats where you want to be. But thats not always applicable and not everybody can have that kind of form.I think Jordan Spieth is there or thereabouts, but you could raise an argument for six or seven guys who are going into the Masters with a lot of form and a lot of history around there, and theres no reason why they cant win. Its going to be a very exciting Masters, and its very difficult to pick a winner.Spieth is widely regarded as the best putter in the world, while McIlroys change to a cross-handed grip for the first World Golf Championship event of the year at Doral resulted in an improved performance on the greens which will stand him in good stead for the Masters. Jordan Spieth emerged as one of the best putters in the world when he stormed to Masters glory last year McGinley added: Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, and Spieths strength is definitely his putting. He started off like a train at Augusta last year, and Rory McIlroy was 11 or 12 shots behind before he had even started his second round.Jordan put such a huge distance between himself and the rest of the field and went on to win his first Masters. But the putting is the strongest part of his game. Hes not blessed with the kind of power that Bubba Watson or Rory McIlroy has, but wed all like to be able to putt as well as Jordan Spieth.The interesting thing about Rorys putting is hes always felt he is left-hand dominant with the putter. So he changed to a left-below-right putting grip at Doral and still felt his left hand would control the stroke. The way he putted in the second and third rounds at Doral were as good as hes ever putted. Rory McIlroy new putting technique served him well at Doral I think that will give him a lot of confidence and inspiration going into the Masters. We know how good his long game is, and when he gets hot with the putter, hes pretty formidable.McIlroy is currently the favourite with Sky Bet as he bids to complete a career grand slam of majors, but McGinley added: Its so difficult to pick a winner, particularly when the difference between the top 10 players in the world is so small. Anybody can turn up, show a bit of form and win.We saw that when Charl Schwartzel won the Valspar Championship at the weekend. Hes won at Augusta in the past, so you cant discount the likes of him and Louis Oosthuizen, who won in Australia a couple of weeks ago. Louis lost out to Bubba in a play-off in 2012, and Bubba has won twice around there now. Bubba Watsons early-season form and stats bode well for another big week at Augusta Theres a lot of good form and trends in terms of Bubbas stats this year, so youve got to look closely at him. This is whats going to make the Masters to exciting, you can build a case for so many different players.The feature of Scotts remarkable recent form has been his outstanding putting after he was forced to revert to a traditional-length putter following the ban on anchored putting that was enforced at the start of the year. Scott is putting better than ever since reverting to a short putter Adam used the long putter for years because he basically had the yips with the short stick, McGinley said. He won the Masters using the long putter and then had a couple of average years, and then he was forced to go back to a traditional putter because of the ban on the anchored technique which came in on January 1.And over the last month, hes actually putted better than he ever has, but can he hold onto that form for another month? Thats the big question, because we know how hard it is to sustain that kind of form for any length of time. But certainly he has the form and the confidence at the moment, and obviously hes a past winner at Augusta.

In the tentative ruling, Superior Court Judge Michael Levanas sided with Sterlings estranged wife Shelly Sterling, who burst into tears when the ruling was announced. "I cant believe its over. I feel good," she said. Shelly Sterling negotiated the sale of the team after the 80-year-old billionaire was banned by the NBA for making offensive remarks about blacks. She sought approval from a probate judge for the deal she struck after removing her husband from the trust that owned the team when doctors found he had signs of Alzheimers disease and couldnt manage his affairs. Donald Sterling claimed his wife deceived him about the medical exams. He later revoked the trust after she negotiated the record-setting sales price and his lawyers argued that the move killed the deal. They said the case didnt belong in probate court because the trust had been dissolved. The ruling in Los Angeles County Superior Court is unlikely to put an end to the bizarre saga that began in April when a recording surfaced of Sterling scolding his young girlfriend for bringing black men to Clippers games. The NBA moved quickly to ban Sterling for life and fined him $2.5 million. Sterling was apologetic after the audio recording went viral, but his mea culpa backfired when he criticized Lakers great Magic Johnson, who had been photographed with Sterlings girlfriend, as a bad role model for kids because he had HIV. Sterling was roundly criticized from locker rooms to the Oval Office, where President Barack Obama called Sterlings remarks "incredibly offensive racist statements." With the NBA threatening to seize the team and auction it, Sterling initially gave his wife of 58 years permission to negotiate a sale but then refused to siign it. Brandon Ingram Jersey. He said he would sue the league instead and then revoked the trust. The nonjury trial held over several weeks focused mainly on whether Shelly Sterling properly removed her husband as a trustee and whether her actions carried any weight after he revoked the trust. Donald Sterlings lawyers contended that his wife and her lawyers conspired to trick him and that the mental exams by two doctors were faulty. They said Sterling didnt know his competency as a trustee was being evaluated and that he showed no signs of incompetence on the witness stand. In combative testimony, Sterling said he would "never, ever sell" the team he bought in 1981 for about $12 million. He vowed to fight the NBA in court until the day he dies. Before taking the stand, he kissed his wife and then testified that he loved her. But the following day when she approached him in court he yelled, "get away from me, you pig!" Sterling, a lawyer who made a fortune as a landlord, has filed an antitrust lawsuit in federal court against the NBA and he sued his wife, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver and the league in state court. Lawyers for Shelly Sterling and Ballmer had urged the judge to let the sale go through because it was in the best interest of the family trust. They said an auction was less likely to bring such a high price and that coach Doc Rivers, key players and sponsors were likely to walk if Donald Sterlings ownership was prolonged. "The trust has a golden bird in the hand," Shelly Sterlings lawyers wrote in court papers. "A sale of the Clippers for $2 billion is indisputably a bonanza for the Sterling family. Donalds strident opposition is motivated by only selfish considerations." Donald Sterling said he could get more for the team by also selling TV rights and through his $9 billion suit against the league. ___ AP Special Correspondent Linda Deutsch contributed to this story.
