2014 Masters Discussion Thread - Page 39

post #685 of 1528
This morning, Golf Channel had a highlight segment on Marc Leishman, as he was 3 under after 3 holes today, and in the lead at -5.

Looks like he missed the cut. Wow. I had a round this weekend with fellow TST- ers where my round sorta fell apart at the turn. I won't whine any more about that.

Oh that reminds me, Eric (@0ldblu3) told me on the course that he was gonna make a crazy pick on Blixt for the contest here. Not bad, Eric.

Rory's gotta 2-putt to make the cut

I did follow through and make that pick, but I set the score to low. He's playing well but is mixing in a bunch of bogey's with his birdies. 20 par's, 10 birdies, 5 bogey's, and one double.

Saw Bubba's interview yesterday. Says his goal was to just hit greens a2_wink.gif

Whoo! Everyone I picked in the Cobra Driver contest that started made the cut. Maybe I should check to see if anyone chose them with a higher pick.

Excellent! Then I'm still alive with my first pick. Now Rory just needs to go -17 for then next two rounds. 63/64 on the weekend- no prob.

Surely no one will be able to smell my farts in here.

Hmmm maybe the Masters thread isn't the best place for my previous comment. My fault. 

 

Back away slowly from the keyboard....

look forward to seeing this Fitzpatrick kid in the future - sorry that he missed the cut

Is a draw harder to keep in the air?

Let's see, I got my stream on the Bubba group at the moment. I got my very unhealthy lunch laid out before me in all its glory. Life could be a lot worse right now, I think.

 

Oh yea, as the day 1 leader in the Masters contest, and thus, unlikely to win the event (Brandel Chambell led after one round too), I did some quick digging and here is the list of all the past Contest winners at theSandTrap:

 

2012 Masters -- @VforVendetta, runner-up: @darkstar76

2012 PLAYERS -- @Matthew Brett 

2012 US Open -- @Aquaguru 

2012 British -- @realed 

2012 PGA -- @Yukari 

2013 Masters -- @MEfree 

2013 US Open -- @Shaggie13, runner-up: @cabelly 

2013 British -- @dtambo, runner-up: @Mulligan Jeff 

2013 PGA -- @DCrotty22 runner-up: @Aquaguru 

 

No one's ever finished first twice, but @Aquaguru has a 1st and 2nd place finish. 

 

Come on, Bill Haas, don't shoot 78 today! 

 

Bill Haas shot 78 today.  :doh: 

 

Ugh. Why was it that that had to come true? :yucky: 

 

Still kind of funny though I wrote that before his round.

I see the 11th hole is 505 yrds and a par 4. And the 13th hole 510 yrds and par 5.  So who makes this stuff up?  Seems only right that 500 yrds or more should be par 5 and those idiot 600 yrd holes, par 6.  No 600 yarder at augusta, but hole 2 is 575. It's a good long walk.

Part of par is not only the horizontal distance, but also how long it plays (and generally, which integer they expect the scores to be closest to). 11 is significantly downhill and doesn't have water fronting the entire green. I think the green is larger, too, or at least deeper. You can also tell how accurate par is by the second shot played by pros -- how often have you seen someone lay up on 11 from the fairway? What of 13? The pros aren't looking at par when they make this decision, but how many strokes it will take them to get the ball in the hole. The closest I've seen to a layup on 11 is the occasional draw player aiming right of the green so a missed green results in a chip instead of a drop.

Not saying it's right or wrong -- just trying to explain why you can have two holes so close in yardage and yet they're a different par.

So many oldtimers make the cut - so many big names didn't make the cut - what does this say about Augusta National and the Masters  - what's the difference between this event and the other majors?
