The Masters just got that much more interesting

With his victory at Doral, Phil Mickelson has just made the Masters that much more interesting.

The storyline at Augusta was always going to be about Tiger returning to his favorite haunt in pursuit of his 6th green jacket.  Irrespective of whether he wins between now and then, Tiger will still be the story.  He's always the lead story at Augusta, and with it being his first major since his one-legged victory at the US Open, it'll even that much more about Tiger.

But there's a good chance that Phil will be the favorite heading into Augusta, even if nominally so.  He's won two of his last three starts, and seems to be peaking.  He'd love to knock Tiger from his number one perch, and a victory at the Masters will do just that.  If golf ever need a Tiger-Phil showdown at Augusta, now would be the time.  Heck, the country could use it.  The only thing that could make it better would be if Greg Norman somehow got into the mix.
