Ouch!    Wait until Tiger aces it in his 60s, some 15 year earlier than Jack did.

Watched Bill Horschel on the range.  He putts with the heel up/toe down.

Very interesting.  I wonder it's because the greens are too fast?

The greens are not too fast. they are just have severe slope to them. If they ran at some of the US Open speeds then no ball would stay on the green.

Stevie Stricker's putter is set up like that too

Anyone know what the actual stimpmeter number is?

The Masters absolutely has the best online access to actually watching the tournament. Watching some of the coverage today. I prefer watching it online than on TV.

Absolutely, I love being able to watch Amen Corner or 15 and 16 online.

It was said yesterday the greens going into this tournament are a lot slower than they were the last couple years. They had a lot of rain the other day, so it wouldn't surprise me to see someone go 64 or 65 before the day's over. Guys are making the turn at -3 and -4 and the back nine is very vulnerable after 12. If you don't go under par today, you have a big hill to climb. Even Tom Watson's a couple under.

My Vegas ticket is on DJ and Spieth. I still like DJ's chances the most. I'm looking for him to beat up these par-5s on the back nine today. Still think the softer the greens, the more I expect McIlroy to contend. I'm surprised he's off to a slow start today.

Anyone else have a choppy feed, like it's buffering? Our internet is 20 mbps download (just tested), which is way more than enough to stream this.

edit: They're using flash player for some absurd reason. So, that's probably contributing to it.

Nope... rock solid for me here on my desktop, hardwired to my cable modem, and I don't have anywhere near 20 mbps.  I set my laptop up in the kitchen on wi-fi and it was a bit choppy while it was downloading some windows updates, but once that was done the Masters feed was smooth.

Hoffman looking strong at -5. Had a feeling about him. Took him with my third choice. No chance he'll finish, but right now really solid.

Took -6 as the final winning score.  There better be a wind storm.

LOL sorry about that.. Yeah it looks like it might be closer to 10-12 than 6.
