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.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
