Winning score is going to be higher than normal.....probably around -5 or -6 if that. This course is going to be very firm by Sunday, but I do expect Augusta to set it up for scoring the last day like they normally do.
Scott, Watson, and Snedeker are the 3 names that jump out at me as serious contenders early. Don't see Oosthuizen hanging around because of his back problems. Haas, Walker and a lot of those other names haven't faced major pressure yet.
The most surprising score to me is undoubtedly Zach Johnson. Did not see that round coming. Thought Dustin, Phil and Day would struggle because of their recent injuries, but ZJ's score came out of nowhere.

I don't know. As hard as Bubba lashes at the ball, every swing was exciting to me. Who knows what is going to happen when he walks onto the tee? Two first timers T2. Weird that Nance (or someone) called Blixt a youngster (or something to that affect)...he's almost 30.
