Right around Noon on Thursday we have nine players tied for the lead in golf’s first major. I doubt more than two of these names show up on Sunday afternoon at The Masters.
Tiger will tee off in a few minutes. Most of the experts think the golf tournament ends at that point. Don’t buy into it. Sure, Woods will linger around the top of the leaderboard in Augusta, but no one in golf receives a title because everyone thinks he deserves it. If Tiger wins his fifth green jacket, he will need to improve his putting in majors. Woods just pared the opening hole at Augusta. 71 to go.
Fred Couples starts off with two bogeys in his first four holes. Not exactly the best start for “Boom Boom.”
I like Justin Rose to walk away with the formal wear on the 18th green on Sunday afternoon.
