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.

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.

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.

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.

    • What country do you think has the fastest pace of play? Asking for when I retire
    • 4.5 hours being considered fine is just an American view of the game  I think most Americans would find themselves unwelcome if they didnt adjust to the pace in their weekly rounds elsewhere in the world.
    • Played yesterday and today.  Didn't go so well yesterday as I shot a 106 yesterday as my driver was just all over the place and my ball striking overall left a lot to be desired.  Had 4 GIRs, however, 3 were on the front which was a general theme as shot 49 on the front and 57 on the back. Score: 106 CR/Slope: 71.6/121 2 Pars 5 Bogeys 3 DB 6 TB 1 Quad-Bogey View this round on GAME GOLF   Today I was able to bounce back and although I shot 100, I had control over my driver, was moving the ball right to left or straight off the tee and my ball striking felt better.  2 holes ended up doing me in, though.  After starting with 3 bogeys, which really should have included 1 par, and a double bogey, on the par 3 4th hole, I pushed a 7I right  and subsequently overdrew the ball on my reload and missed short and right on a brutal front right location location on a green that slopped severely from back right to front left.  Over-hit my chip shot that went all the way to the back right of the green, had to chip on and then 3 putt for an 8.  On the Par 4 14th hole, I overdrew 2 tee shots with my 3H OB.  Then chipped out, leaving myself 100 yards, took a three-quarter swing with a 52 degree wedge and left it short right.  Flag was on the front right and I thinned my chip shot, leaving it on the back left of the green.  I then 3 putt for a 10.  That said, drained a few longish putts, but my short game, putter notwithstanding, was brutal as I failed to leave myself any gimmies when chipping.  That said, had another birdie and a few pars so there are definitely positives to take away from the round. Score: 100 CR/Slope: 70.4/124 Birdie: 1 Pars: 3 Bogeys: 6 DB: 6 Others: 2 View this round on GAME GOLF 4 rounds in four days - first time I've been able to do that and it was AWESOME!  Shot 95, 95, 106, 100 so, not too shabby for me. 
    • thank you...already loaded up on TM clubs :/...that being said, I've been working on my tee shot and was wondering how much range time is too much?  have had my M2 driver for about 5 days...have hit about 250ish balls with it already...too much?
    • Yep.  Lagavulin is another.  The Isle of Islay scotches are unique.  A lot of people don’t like the peat and astringent iodine.  Good stuff, but not a beginners whisky!
