I wonder who the honorary starters will be in 10 or 15 or 20 years from now. Tiger, Phil, Faldo? Crenshaw, Tiger, Phil?

Tiger playing on Thursday means Tiger is in a featured group. :-)

I seem to recall that it hasn't always meant that. I don't know that he was in the featured groups in 2015, or maybe 2014… (of course, maybe I'm just remembering 2016 and 2017 when he didn't play, so of course he wasn't in the featured groups).

But I'm almost sure I'm right about people being upset that he wasn't in the featured coverage within the last five years, at least once.

But yeah, I'm glad to be able to watch him Thursday. My lesson (who schedules a lesson for the Masters!?!?!) on Thursday didn't want to move to Wednesday :-), so it is what it is.

I read the reports when they came out and yeah, there was some speculation but this (some were really wild) one seems about as fair and balanced as any of them.

Something happened to run him off the driveway and to crash his car. Then adjust my financial award closer to 100 million and the POINT I was making is that it was far more about the smashed car and the club she allegedly may have wielded than a simple marital affair. 

:doh:

  1. Again, that's 2009. Why should any of us still care about 2009 much in 2018?
  2. The "story" talked about in this topic is a RECENT story about Tiger possibly having to deal with a girlfriend breaking an NDA, paying her off, cheating on her (not his wife), etc.

I second @turtleback… stop digging, man.

When it results in a wife Fing a player up with a 3 wood and taking 300mil back home to Switzerland, the story kinda gains legs past the sexual content. Just saying that it's not exactly one's "sex life" that's the story.

Apologies in advance to our international friends here but I only hope an American wins this year's tourney.

She's from Sweden, not Switzerland. 

But about your hoping an American wins, I may be unusual in this regard, but I don't particularly root for Americans unless it's an American team in the Ryder Cup or something like that.   I generally root for players regardless of where they come from.

I'm going to stick to the topic at hand. 

Just some general observations from my previous Masters viewing. 

The firmer the greens are the higher the scoring is.

If it is cold typically the scoring is higher.

If the wind blows, the scoring is generally higher.

If there are multiple rain delays, the scoring is at about the all-time Masters average.

Typically if there is only one long delay, the scores are lower.

If the field, has to play more than one round on a day. The scoring is at about the average. 

Just things to consider when the 82nd Masters gets underway tomorrow morning.

Sergio is teeing off in the middle. Does he get preference for time or is it just random?

Nothing is random at Augusta!
