Not quite Sunday pins but not much in the middle of the greens either. Slightly harder than yesterday. I like 12 and 13 especially

There’s not a cut between round one and round two.

I meant they have to play 27 holes in a row and fatigue could be a problem. For example, Collin Morikawa played 9 holes this morning and just started the second round.

This kind of thing happens all of the time.  Go look up how many holes Tiger played in one day, while winning the 2005 Masters.  Go back a little in history and you will find that playing 36 holes on the last day of an event were common.  Then there is the US Amateur, which still plays a 36 hole match for the finals.

If playing 27 holes is a problem for a player then, IMO, they have no business being a pro golfer, let alone playing in the Masters.

Yeah, I think yesterday the holes were cut in the high spots of many greens given the rain.

That makes sense.

DJ is looking pretty sharp this morning.

He is looking serene, could shoot a low, low number today.

Is there anything better than the Masters' website? I submit to you that there is NOT.

JT hitting a tree and the ball ending up further away from the green on a punchout makes me feel better about all the times it happens to me.

Im and Ancer are doing well for their first Masters. I've heard that data predicts players don't start playing their best at ANGC after around 6 tournaments or something.

He seems laid back enough to absorb it:  "Whatever."

Yes, but it also reminds me of the time I was in the trees and was going to have to pitch out to be about 30 yards further from the green than where I was in the trees.  I pushed my pitch out, hit a tree, and it ricocheted into the fairway, 20 yards closer to the green than I started.  I went on to bogey the hole, IIRC.

    • I think this is the key comparison. Why do men get an average of 23% higher ratings but have a purse that's 127% higher. Granted that purse is the US Open, not an average like that ratings number is. But my impression just from watching over the years is that the average men's purse is nowhere close to only 23% higher than the average women's purse. World Surf League's equal prize money stand for men and women The World Surf League has announced an equal prize money structure for male and female competitors, becoming the first US-based sports... WSL events are as or nearly as frequent as (L)PGA events.
    • Not really. I don’t know if you’ve heard of Jim Venetos...we discussed his swing on this site. I swing from a position that I hold...closed stance and remain quite still on the back swing. So honestly I’m pretty consistent with my driver and figured a little longer shaft would give me some more yards. My accuracy was a little less as when I did make a mistake ( like opening too much on my downswing) my cut would be a little more drastic than with the shorter length. 
    • But that has been the rule in the LPGA since late 2010, more than 10 years.  The NCAA already allows transgender players to compete in women's sports, with some stipulations.  I don't see the Executive Order as changing much of what goes on in women's golf.
    • But this doesn't affect golf or the LPGA Tour. LPGA players vote to allow transgender women golfers LPGA players have voted to allow transgender players to compete on tour in response to a lawsuit filed by a California woman who had her sex changed five years ago. That's ten years ago. They scrapped the "female at birth" clause in 2010.
    • Thank you.  Truer words were never spoken.  But if I cut out golf, cocktails, girls and coffee I'd be a wealthy man... but where's the fun in that???
