Then the same schedule again for Friday.

 

On the weekend, if I remember correctly, they show the leaders entire rounds now.

 

Definitely no shortage of TV/internet coverage if you have time to sit and watch. :)

 

Oh trust me, I watched all of the internet coverage the past 2 seasons, and it sucks compared to the coverage for the other majors.  The featured groups are usually pretty bad, and  you typically only catch the last 10 holes of their rounds (if I'm not mistaken...at least for the 2nd/afternoon featured groups).  I don't remember if it was the US Open or the PGA Championship last year, but the app+internet coverage put the Masters to shame, and even other championship sporting events.

 

Really the only good internet coverage is of Amen Corner and 15/16.  But that still leaves out the entire front 9.  I know most of the back 9 holes pretty well, but every year I forget what some of the first few holes look like until I see the Saturday/Sunday coverage of the leaders.

Yeah, they don't actually say who the featured pairings will be.  Not sure if the pairings are even out yet??  You would hope the featured pairing would be Tiger and Bubba or Rory and Phil, but for all we know it will be Ian Woosnam and Sandy Lyle or Nathan Smith and TJ Vogel (a couple amateurs).

Just noticed: 14 year old Guan using belly putter

post #77 of 1228

Guan is the luckiest 14 year old on the planet. Gets to be the youngest golfer ever in the Masters. Got to play a practice round with Phil Mickelson on Saturday. Got to play practice rounds today with Ben Crenshaw and Tiger Woods. Gets to play a practice round tomorrow with Tom Watson. Awesome experience for the kid.

The other part that kinda sucks is (I'm pretty sure) that Shot Tracker doesn't work for this event (also doesn't work for the [British] Open [Championship]).  Anyway, I'll be excited for it to start, and then I'll be pulling my hair out half the time trying to figure out if Tiger/DJ/Rory/etc got up-and-down for par on #2...as I wait 15 minutes for it to update.

Tournament pairings and tee times for Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2013 Masters will be announced today......

A nice 'interactive' outline of Augusta National with hole by hole aerial photos, how best to play each hole, and historical record of score on each hole.  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/golf/mastersaugusta/9981431/The-Masters-2013-Interactive-course-guide.html

FYI: There is coverage of the practice range in the mornings on the website. Have never seen the practice grounds before, at least if I did on national TV, I don't remember much of it. There are your requisite interviews and stock answers, but you see a decent number of swings.

 

Louis Ost... is doing a drill with an additional ball behind the club at setup and rolls it back on the backswing. Interesting.

post #83 of 1228

He was 9 when Tiger won his last major - probably has no idea why people think he's so good.

Promoting a "pushing out" of the hands to get length on the backswing? I really am not sure I understand the actual intent behind that drill. Does anybody have an explanation? I saw that and found it odd... (I'm watching Masters on the Range as well).

Missed it Monday and Today, but the link to coverage is above. Wednesday 9-11 a.m.

 

Still no pairings on the Masters.com site.

post #86 of 1228

Here's Guan Tianlang (关天朗). Anyone know if this is his current swing? Just before impact, it looks like a little bit of breakdown in the lead arm and wrist. I can see why his max drive is 250ish.

What are the odds that Phil will do something stupid?

post #88 of 1228

just keep Leadbetter away from him.....yes, looks like the swing I saw on Golf Channel yesterday. I was kind of surprised to see it - not really a thing of beauty imo....on his takeaway, has that Dufner, flatter swing plane look to it.  Over the years, you see some odd swings coming out of Asia - and they have had success with them.  But lately, they've looked outstanding (Sang-moon Bae, for instance - beautiful swing).

post #89 of 1228

Pairings out: Tiger plays with Luke Donald and Scott Piercy 10:45 (group 15).

 

http://www.masters.com/en_US/players/pairings/index.html


Lefty plays later with Kaymer and Ooooooosthuizen (1:30).

 

McIlRoy with Keegan Bradley and Frederick Jacobsen

 

Poulter early with Bubba Watson

 

Rose with Schnedeker

 

Just noticed Kevin Na is playing.......does he still have those full swing yips?

Fairly probable I would guess lol. I hope not though... I would really love to see a Sunday Phil & Tiger pairing. Both of them @ -8 going in as T1. Couldn't really ask for much more than that!
