I'm sure the Augusta National Tournament Committee has the ability to control how hard the wind blows...they control when the azaleas bloom, what the commentators say, how many t.v. commercials run pe

Dear me....let's look for some obscure way to turn a wonderful victory into something less. "Would never" is a big statement to say about something that did actually happen. Why didn't Rose win b

He's on a roll, just let him go! a) the field destroys the par 5's b) Spieth is a short hitter

If you guys HAD to place a bet on one of these two players, which way would you go:

  • Pat Perez at 150:1
  • Fred Couples at 300:1

Last I saw, these are the current odds for these players.  I would take Boom Boom twice if I could...

Perez, easy decision imo.

3 beers, no tip.  Thankfully, I typically have more than $12 so I tip generously.

Also a big difference between a warm wind when it's 80 degrees and a cold, heavy wind when it's 50 degrees with a wind chill in the 30s. It's a much more difficult wind to play in when it's cold. We saw the players struggle in the cold wind a lot in 2007 when it was brutal. We saw it really bad at St. Andrews two years ago. So I'd be willing to wager that if the weather forecast doesn't change, there may not be many scores, if any, in the red on Thursday.

Can you talk a bit more about this ? I don't expect those temps, even with windchill to be in the 30s, maybe high 40s early. Never mind that, can you tell me if at the corner, does it sit much lower ? Are they downhill shots, thus, the player can look at the flag all he wants, the wind is UP at the ball height ?

Try to pull up masters Trak on Google Earth and you get a masters CARTOON Picture more or less. Shows you how corrupt things are and if you have money, you can hide whatever you want... Thanks for the comments in advance... Love THE MASTERS... it is just an awesome place and hopefully I will get there next year or the year after...

So @jsgolfer is at the practice round today. They were just evacuated for the second time. Didn't realize this but that means they made them all get in their cars and drive away. Ugghh..

Hope they get to go back.

His comments will have the effect of forcing every player to be careful to mark and replace properly.

Nope. Just the popular and/or leaders. The others are safe. Which is fair and logical so call ins should be allowed forever. Makes sense.

I feel for those folks with Wednesday tickets now that the day has been rained out, but the weather looks good the rest of the week!

It leaves a bitter taste in everyone's mouth when this happens in sports. There is no reason that they could not refund money other than pure greed... We all understand business, how it works, especially if you own a business.. In this situation, anything more than the money they need to cover expenses should be paid back in GOOD FAITH... which is the thing missing these days...

NBA owners should have to do it too. I have to buy tickets to see Cleveland vs Miami in advance, months in advanced because they are pricey and might sell out, my kid is dying to see LeBRON and the owner chooses to sit him, Cleveland can pay me back the difference of his value. Just bogus and is ruining the experiences for what, another yacht...

Sorry, off my soap box... Enjoy the masters...

I think a good thought. Wish market economics would force them to...

Just go back  from the disaster practice round/par 3 tournament. But you cann't beat Mother Nature.  Got to see a few holes before the first evacuation and then walked a little of the course before the second evacuation, just as we reached the Par 3 tournament.  So I got to see Rory hit a few shots on 16, along with Sergio and then saw DJ hit his drive on 13 into the. Pine straw next to me and them hit a 6 iron onto the green,  Saw a couple other players out, but no player came back after the first evacuation.  And the Par 3 tournament, not sure anyone got in more than a couple of holes.

Gorgeous place, hope I can get back.

The Pimento Cheese sandwich rocks!  Had two of them, $1,50/each.  $5 for a beer, spent way too much in the golf souvenir shop, but what the hell.

I just pulled it up on my phone and it's fine, no cartoons.

So do you still think DJ hits his 6 iron further than I hit my driver?? :-D

That sucks!  I was hoping to see him on the leaderboard on Sunday.

    • @alexschoI would suggest a UW to fill the gap between the PW and SW. If you're a high handicap, I'm not sure you need a 58 degree wedge.  Your priority on short game shots isn't "get it close" (but that's great if you can), but rather "get the ball on the green;  within spots on the green, priority is to spots close to the hole."  But I wouldn't just now use a club that many high handicappers usage tends to risk leaving themselves with yet another short game shot.
    • Good luck.  Make sure you know the rules, of course;  people can and do get casual with the rules during non-tournament play.  Make sure you know what local rules are in effect, too;  you don't want to Jerry Rice yourself out of a tournament if, for example, laser range finders aren't allowed but you use one. 
    • 87 today at my home course.  Hit 4 GIR:  holes 1, 17, and 18, but only one in between (#8, a 4-wood into the wind to about 15', had a tap-in par on that one).
    • Day 151.  Tournament at my home course today.  I shot an 87 with 4 GIR and 7 near-GIR.  Now that I write that out, I feel my long game was better than that stat line today, but I guess not.  I did some full swing practice before the round, outdoors at the range, checking my backswing length as per my past month or so of work.
    • Secured a par at my home course's hole #17 today.  I am not happy with how long it took me to get better than bogey on it.  I hit a poor tee shot, a good recovery punch shot, then a sweeping hook 6-iron to the green.  I correctly read that the lie and setup would hook, aimed well left of the green, and swung.  Big hook, ended on the left side of the green, 15' from the pin, and I darn near made the birdie putt too. Speaking of which, I gave a par at #s 7 and 9 a good run today too.  Still no birdies at my home course this year! 😞
