Hearing Ian Baker Finch talk us through Rory's four-putt was depressing. Edit: now he's in the hazard off the next tee. It's over. He'll have to learn from it and become a better player because of it. Brandon

Three perfect clichés. You must write for CBS sports! ;)

The way Augusta plays, with its opportunities and unforgiving penalties, makes it the most dramatic golf tournament in the world in my opinion.  Sure, one can juice up the US Open greens and grow terrible rough, and the Open can be grueling and require imagination, the PGA can move about to provide great venues and challenges, but Augusta is the grand high opera of golf.  What a place.

Scott with the outright lead! If he can make something happen on the par 5, he has an excellent chance of winning it all.

I'm really hoping for an epic 7 man playoff....

I would love to see this. Too much good golf today, they need more time to sort it all out

Now, they play all 7 at once if this happens, right?  No grouping to play a sudden death playoff?

Yeah, I think Scott is going to ruin our hopes.[/quote] I lied? He just completely fanned his approach shot at the par 5 :-\

Now that would be epic. Speaking of epic, if Tiger is back he will make a putt at 18.

Not a whole lot of cummupence being dished out in the past few minutes.

My bad - it might not have been "dished out" up to that point, but once it was, Rory went back for extra helpings. Oh man.

Man, those two short misses at 12 and 15 are going to haunt Tiger in his sleep tonight. Adam Scott's tee shot at 16 was clutch, but at 17 not so much. Appears to be in the left tree line. Let's see if he can recover. Brandon

Wow, Adam Scott's putter is saving him right now.

It's a shame Donald found the water on that par 3, since he really came out firing after that.

Never thought you'd say that, eh?

Man, if Schwartzel goes on to win this one I will have been one year premature in my picking of him to win the Masters (last year). So, expect Hunter Mahan to be in contention next year. He was my pick to win this year. Brandon

    • I think of this question in terms of which tee box to play from.  If I was using my 3 hybrid more than say 2 or 3 times to a par 4 after a decent drive, I'd play from a more forward tee box. Ideally, if I was a course architect, I'd want you to use a long iron (3 or 4 iron) a couple times for par fours, and have one or two par five holes that you can reach in two with a really good drive and a 3 wood, and the other par five holes are not reachable in two.
    • One thought I use w/shanks is "hit the toe". Might work, YMMV.
    • The dreaded shanks are contagious. If you hit one on the range fine, but two in a row and just walk away and go putt and come back after a few minutes and remember to breathe. Once you do come back, work on your path with a headcover just outside the ball and start with some easy shots then progress to full shots. Question for you, do you tend to whip the club inside on the takeaway or slide forward a bit? And remember:  Everybody shanks, sometimes.....  
    • Well the golf season never really ends here so I will add to these numbers with a few more round this year hopefully, but here we go:  I have played roughly 35 times this year, and I have played at: Raveneaux Country Club  Cypresswood (Tradition Course) Jersey Meadow Golf Club Windrose Golf Club Memorial Park Golf Course Cypress Lakes Houston National Longwood Southwyck  Patty Jewett Golf Course Augusta Pines Golf Course Meadowbrook Farms  High Meadow Ranch Pamilla Beach and Golf Club Sterling Country Club Spring Valley Disc and Golf Club Raven Nest Golf Club  I hope to add at least one more course to this list before YE. 
    • Besides the smarty pants answer of a putter or wedge...I looked at game golf (even though I haven't used it much in recent months). I hit almost 40% of my green inside 150 yards so I would say I need an 8 Iron, or maybe a 7 to feel pretty confident about my GIR chances.
