Can I assume that if one makes the cut then they get paid, and if they miss the cut they'll be lucky to get a free sandwich on Saturday? Also, if they don't make the cut can they still come back on the weekend as a patron/spectator? Just curious, based on the following link: http://www.augusta.com/content/2013-masters-prize-money

You called that somebody might get to -7 and I thought u were nuts :). I still do actually. Hahaha

And that the cut would be +3 or +4. :-P

And yesterday somebody (you maybe?) said that the winner will finish Sunday at -6 or -7 (which is still very much in the picture) and I said -8.

It's a small consolation to be able to make fairly decent educated guesses on this ... because when a driver is on the line (or in another contest I'm in, a free round of golf) I do things like pick Zach Johnson and Sergio Garcia to win. :bugout:

That's what I always assumed.  Just the other day though, I noticed that in the US Open, pros get 2k no matter what. https://champs.usga.org/EntryForms/usopen_2014.pdf

Certainly The Masters has its own rules, but I still thought that was interesting.  It doesn't even say anything about missing the cut, it just says "pros who start but don't return scores for 72 holes" so I guess even a WD gets you 2,000.

Patrick Reed into 12: "BITE....BITE...GET DOWN" *Ball lands in bunker short of green* Back to Reed: "Yeah, great f*cking call"

This kid is amazing. He actually got a ball to listen to him!

Wow, what a fantastic break Rory just got!


No wonder they score better than me- I never get those f*cking breaks.

If that was my ball, it would be buried in a wild boars ass sitting in the thistles.

Memo to Patrick Reed: Before you talk the talk, you better walk the walk.  If you don't, prepare to make a lot of enemies, which he is doing.

What if a viewer calls in a penalty on Bubba like last year with Tiger. The committee reviews it and decides at 10 am to assess Bubba 2 strokes. Voila, the cut is +5. But the golfers at +5 have all left town.

Rory in the flower bed.

LOL! It's sick that they do not cover the ''water-locks'' with false gras mats or something, in a tournament like master! Or in PGA tour at that matter.......Stupid

Not exactly a picture perfect leaderboard like we've seen in past years, but nevertheless, should be an interesting weekend. Gotta like Bubba's chances given the fact he's got a green jacket already. Lot of solid vets like Bjorn and Couples mixed in with Cinderellas like Blixt and Senden. And then there's Adam Scott just lurking right there.

I had Russel Henley on my list of longshots and I'm hoping he can pull it off. I put a 5 dollar bet on him to win 700 at the beginning of the week and he's sneaking up the leaderboard.

    • You may have missed adding the link, but its Local Rule F-14 The discussion specifically mentions accumulations of leaves.
    • Looks like a good game of wiffle ball could be played there!
    • 96 recovery today. Probably because of my 99% sleep efficiency and 9 hours of sleep I got.  somehow my HRV was 101! 
    • I wasn't looking at win totals. I looked at how guys from older eras did against players who were on tour during Tigers era. How do you explain Raymond Floyd and Tom Watson and Hale Irwin?  Floyd wasn't at the very top playing against Nicklaus. He also missed quite a few cuts. Yet he was ranked 12th in 1992 and in the top 10 in his late 40s. One of three things has to be true. 1. Floyd got much better as he approached 50  or 2. The fields got much better between 1992 and 1996. or 3. There were more good players than being given credit for. Floyd didn't dominate playing against 1970s fields. He wasn't really close to being the best player.   1 and 2 seem rather unlikely. Since 3 seems most likely and since most of the players I listed above had better records playing directly against Floyd a reasonable conclusion is the fields were not substantially weaker at the top in 1976 vs 1996. Ben Crenshaw won a Master's in 1995. Hale Irwin won a US Open in 1990. This wasn't that long ago.
