Is it just me, or do the greens look browner than they have in the past?

I agree that the course is fine as it is. IMO, the reachability of the par-5 holes at Augusta National makes them more interesting. On 13 and 15, there are plenty of things that can go wrong too, which makes them exciting to watch.

I was just getting ready to say something about how brown the greens look. They look more like US Open greens.

I'll give a free TST towel to the first person who names the winner (full name, not just last name) and the correct winning score in relation to par. Only one entry per person, and your first ent

The most important part of the Masters Tournament has just been decided.  I'm there for the lobster & corn fritters, miso-marinated sea bass and the peach cobbler.

Liver, fava beans and a nice chianti.

Classic annoying leaderboard ....Simpson, Leishman, Matsuyama. Pure bores who always come around in Majors...then fizzle. Hopefully they’ll disappear.

Some of the top guys not having a great start.

Lee, Day and Rory +5

Bryson, Koepka +2. Bryson seems to be more in the woods and weeds than he’d like.

I haven’t seen much yet, but how are they coping with the greens?

Terrible start for Hovland, but he’s fought back and scrambled around. Getting in at +1 would be fine.

Those predicting winning score of -15 or better needs to get something going.

Rory hit his own dad with a shot at the seventh. 😅

The par doesn't really matter. And the more players learn about strategy, the closer how much it matters gets to zero.

+1

And it’s already a monster of a course at 7475yds.

Here in Michigan we have had one of the more milder, drier end of winter into spring that I can remember. I haven't followed Georgia's weather, but wouldn't be surprised if it were similar. I remember playing in March with many comments on how dry the course was, almost like in the heat of the summer dryness.

Don’t forget Reed. He’s even won here before.

I hope Phil The Thrill can stay up there. He’s always fun.

They said thirteen's scoring average is 4.3. So clearly the guys take that hole apart relative to the others, but at the same time, that does add some pressure on everyone to collect birdies there. Par is essentially bogey as you're giving up 0.7 strokes per round, historically. 

 

Edit: I still really like the hole of course. I think it's a nice reward for the field after navigating 10-11-12 and to a lesser extent, 9.

Woah, woah, woah, Matsuyama is one of the guys I drafted in our office pool.

Add Justin Rose in the mix too. I'm actually a Rose fan though, so I don't mind.

Rose is 6 under for his last 6 holes. Spieth hacking, hacking it on 9

    • I believe this still has a nonzero probability:  
    • Day 48.  Ruler and floor putting again.  As with last time, this was because it's what I can do in my circumstance, not because it's what's best for my game.  But I have seen my efforts at following through my putting stroke paying off with straight putt after straight putt (also evidence towards my hypothesis that my fault in putting is read and speed, not bead)
    • I don't have a rule book but I asked the tournament director and he could only talk about the rule to do with the ball moving at address. It's no longer a penalty if you are not deemed to have caused the ball to move. He talked about if the ball moved that you have to replace the ball but he could not give me a definitive ruling. He asked me if I hit the ball while it was moving and I said I wasn't sure, I just saw it move so it was close. Do you know the ruling?
    • He needs to play the first nine better... stop making 6s and 7s...
