Players are starting to finish their early rounds now.
Ross fisher is done, posting a 69. Last time he opened at -3 in the Masters he finished T30.
Sean O’Hair is also in the clubhouse with a score of -2 after making birdie on 15 and 18 to finish.
Retief Goosen is at -5 through 10 holes.
This happens every year. I cried during the ceremonial start of the Masters as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer teed off.
Retief Goosen eagled the first hole, a par-4 with a hole out. After four holes he’s now at -4, tied with Ross Fisher who just got up and down from the front bunker on the par-3 12th. The two leaders at -4 are nicknamed Fish and Goose.
Rory McIlroy is off to a good start at -3 after five holes.

Already some funny and interesting happenings on this Monday of Masters week. I have no way of verifying some of these nuggets, so read with that in mind. I’ll post more as I see fit so check back to this post.
Rickie Fowler went into the press room for an interview with his hat backwards. He was asked to put it on forward.
No TW Editor
Editor of Tiger Woods’ web site denied credential into Masters despite Tiger writing them a letter asking for it.
Tweeting and photos from the practice round
Despite being asked not to do it, some players are tweeting and posting images of Augusta National during their practice rounds today. I could really see them kicking someone out of the tournament. Until then, I’m saving all the photos to my hard drive… 🙂
