But the announcers won't stop saying he's 20 years old. YES WE GET IT, HE's 20 YEARS OLD!
Yes, but how old is he?

He is actually thirtysomething.

Perhaps there are some good scores to be had today ... Gary Woodland is -4 through 6 holes and all the way up to a tie for 10th. Gonna be a fun afternoon!

Oh, just wait. Nantz is going to cream himself so much today over the Speith/Scott pairing that I might have to mute the television.

And if they both do well today, Nantz and TGC are just going to be unbearable.

I do like the rapid-fire chats, but we're just supposed to use this thread.



Also, first round ratings down 28% this year: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/golf-devil-ball-golf/the-tiger-effect--espn-s-ratings-down-almost-30-percent-for-masters-opening-round-190435098.html

Someone was talking about it earlier (@Golfingdad?), but they just displayed this graphic on the Amen Corner feed:





(Pardon my shaky hands. One of many reasons I never became a surgeon.)


So 11 is the toughest, 12 is the second toughest, 13 is second easiest.

great guy - ecstatic that he's playing well -

As much as I hate agreeing with RickMartin, I like Woodland also.
post #736 of 1528
Woodland is in featured group 2, in case anyone was wondering.
post #737 of 1528

Wow Woodland -3 through 9 and still has the two easy par 5s to go that he should obliterate with his length. This was the kind of round I expected from Rory...but he is going the other direction.

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.

They don't lay up, per se, but players constantly bail out to the flat landing area short and right of the green. That second shot is scary, the angle the players are coming from makes the water very much in play.
