I'd take 150th at the Old Course over the Masters.  That said, pretty much any other year I would rather have the Masters.

I would take the Open Championship in any year over the Masters.  It is the oldest, most important championship in golf (with the US Open second).
On Sundays, I used to play hickory

Revisiting this topic since Tiger now seems like he is back to a good form. Which do you think he would rather win at this stage of his career? I suppose 'any and all' is a viable answer.

I donít think heís in a position to be picking and choosing but part of me thinks he wants a US Open more than anything, he always seems to relish talking about how people thought he was too erratic to win a US Open and given how erratic he has been for the last few years and how no-one would expect him to win a US Open that isnít at Pebble, I think it would be the most satifying for him.

Of the two options here I would guess heíd choose another Masters.

The Masters.

Honestly, I get the history associated with St. Andrews, but I don't think the course itself is any better than various other Open venues.  And I don't care about the 150th running either.

I'd actually prefer any U.S. Open at Pebble Beach than any Open at St. Andrews though.
