I think we'll get a big climb up the leader board from one of these players today.

10:05  GROUP 6    S. Stricker        +4    and     R. Fowler  +4

10:45  GROUP 10  C. Schwartzel   +3   and     T. Woods   +3

One of them will shoot 67 or better. Its still a bit cool but hardly any wind.

Maybe Graeme will have a shot as well.

A year ago, Martin Kaymer was #1 in the world, but lots of people thought Graeme McDowell was the true Best Golfer in the World. And Tiger fans like me were sure that he would come back. Now, all three are tied at 3 over. As Alanis says, "Isn't it ironic?"

Slow and frustrating. Tiger's on the course, but no video for another 90 minutes at least.

Man, I wish they would just broadcast from start to finish for four days so we don't have to miss ANY of our favorite players. I have to wait till 12:30 EST just to stream online and even then it only follows 2 pairings, Amen Corner, and a couple other select holes I believe. Then it doesn't come on T.V. till 3:30 EST and you end up missing have the round. UGH...

I'm assuming Woods and Schwartzel will be one of those featured pairings, or at least I hope they are. On a side note I noticed the amateur Kelly Kraft is playing by himself. He teed off first at 9:15; I bet it's weird playing by yourself at a Major tournament such as The Masters.

As someone who really doesn't care if Tiger wins, I even thought Faldo was too hard on him after the club kick yesterday!

"lost his mind"

"doesn't have a clue how to put the club face on the ball"

lol

I've seen a couple of sources that say they are the first featured group today. The live feed should start at 1230 EDT. For now, I'm like Reagan reading the ticker tape. Tiger has again failed to birdie the par 5 second, but he did birdie the third, and is now 2 over for the tournament.

No big moves up the leaderboard have been forthcoming so far. The lowest round among the players on the course right now is 1-under.

Aaaaaaand Tiger just busted through to 2 under, through four holes.

Well that's good news, at least I'll have something to watch in about half an hour. Tiger also birdied the par 3 4th and moves to +1. It's good to see him off to a solid start, hopefully this momentum can carry him through the round and not fizzle out like it did yesterday.

The 'Amen Corner' is now streaming live as well for anyone that is interested.

Three fun pairings on Saturday:

Sergio and Rory - one guy who needs to win and another who probably will win

Phil and Vijay - no problems here if Phil wears soft spikes

Gary Woodland and Zach Johnson - drinking game: down one very time Woodland reaches a par 5 in two and Johnson reaches in three

Tiger charge!  I predict he shots 59 today.

Well, now they're just messing with us. Masters.com said coverage of Tiger's group would start at 1230 EDT, and as of 1240 it still isn't on. Would have loved to see how he failed to birdie 8.
