This morning, Golf Channel had a highlight segment on Marc Leishman, as he was 3 under after 3 holes today, and in the lead at -5. Looks like he missed the cut. Wow. I had a round this weekend with fellow TST- ers where my round sorta fell apart at the turn. I won't whine any more about that. Oh that reminds me, Eric ( @0ldblu3 ) told me on the course that he was gonna make a crazy pick on Blixt for the contest here. Not bad, Eric.

Boring?  BORING?  Mike & Mike, Mad Dog Radio, etc etc how could these guys even use the word?  Did these sportscasters even watch the tournament, or did they tune in for the last 3 holes and expec

I'd like to make a suggestion to the Augusta people: Quickly write into your tournament by-laws a contingency tradition; if the son of a former winner wins the tournament, his dad gets to prese

It's not the weather, though, as you may expect ... But rather, Phil Mickelson is just starting his practice round. ;)

I did follow through and make that pick, but I set the score to low. He's playing well but is mixing in a bunch of bogey's with his birdies. 20 par's, 10 birdies, 5 bogey's, and one double.

Hmmm maybe the Masters thread isn't the best place for my previous comment. My fault.

Back away slowly from the keyboard....

Crap, Erik sniffed us out of the old chat room hehe

Let's see, I got my stream on the Bubba group at the moment. I got my very unhealthy lunch laid out before me in all its glory. Life could be a lot worse right now, I think.

Oh yea, as the day 1 leader in the Masters contest, and thus, unlikely to win the event (Brandel Chambell led after one round too), I did some quick digging and here is the list of all the past Contest winners at theSandTrap:

2012 Masters -- @VforVendetta, runner-up: @darkstar76

2012 PLAYERS -- @Matthew Brett

2012 US Open -- @Aquaguru

2012 British -- @realed

2012 PGA -- @Yukari

2013 Masters -- @MEfree

2013 US Open -- @Shaggie13, runner-up: @cabelly

2013 British -- @dtambo, runner-up: @Mulligan Jeff

2013 PGA -- @DCrotty22 runner-up: @Aquaguru

No one's ever finished first twice, but @Aquaguru has a 1st and 2nd place finish.

Come on, Bill Haas, don't shoot 78 today!

Bill Haas shot 78 today. :doh:

Ugh. Why was it that that had to come true? :yucky:

Still kind of funny though I wrote that before his round.

I see the 11th hole is 505 yrds and a par 4. And the 13th hole 510 yrds and par 5.  So who makes this stuff up?  Seems only right that 500 yrds or more should be par 5 and those idiot 600 yrd holes, par 6.  No 600 yarder at augusta, but hole 2 is 575. It's a good long walk.

Part of par is not only the horizontal distance, but also how long it plays (and generally, which integer they expect the scores to be closest to). 11 is significantly downhill and doesn't have water fronting the entire green. I think the green is larger, too, or at least deeper. You can also tell how accurate par is by the second shot played by pros -- how often have you seen someone lay up on 11 from the fairway? What of 13? The pros aren't looking at par when they make this decision, but how many strokes it will take them to get the ball in the hole. The closest I've seen to a layup on 11 is the occasional draw player aiming right of the green so a missed green results in a chip instead of a drop. Not saying it's right or wrong -- just trying to explain why you can have two holes so close in yardage and yet they're a different par.

So many oldtimers make the cut - so many big names didn't make the cut - what does this say about Augusta National and the Masters  - what's the difference between this event and the other majors?

    • You really believe that nobody is 100% evil? There are at least 6,000,000 people that would have disagreed with you. But they're dead.
    • Over my lifetime I've voted in every presidential election for which I've been old enough to vote. I have voted for Democrats. I've voted for Republicans. I have voted for candidates who've won, and for candidates who've lost. My personal policy has always been to vote for the candidate of my choice, and then support who ever wins. If I'm ever invited to the Oval Office, I'm going! ... Again, it's pretty unlikely that I will ever get invited, but you never know.  I have to agree with you here. I can name some really good things and some things that I totally disagree with from every president in my lifetime. 
    • There are so many other curses and obscenities he could have used to express frustration and he chose that. Really sad on many levels.
    • Cheers Sammy, ach aye no bad mate, weathers a bit dreich but hey ho hahaha hows yer sen..?
    • I have no issue with swearing on the golf course, really, but it is important not to tie JT's latest transgression in wth the poll.  "F****t" isn't a "curse word", it's a homophobic slur.
