Masters Thursday Blog

Ok it is time to start my updates for today. I’ve got Amen Corner live on my left 24″ monitor and holes 15 & 16 streaming on my iPhone…

3:30pm ET

There was virtually NO wind earlier, but it is starting to pick up.

We have a log jam at the top.  The following players are at -5: Jim Furyk (16), Larry Mize (through 15, not kidding), Chad Campbell (10), Shingo Katayama (F).

Cabrera is in the house at -4.
Mike Weir is playing well at -3, but could have easily been -6 by the 17th.
Garcia made up some ground after going in Rae’s creek on 12.  Even after bogey on 16.
Tiger Woods doesn’t usually start out quickly at the Masters.  He’s +1 after 6.
Phil Mickelson is at +1 after 17.

2:00pm ET

Chad Campbell is on pace to shoot a 54. He has birdied the first FIVE holes.
Tim Clark shot 68 today after winning yesterday’s Par-3 contest.
Camilo Villegas is looking like he’s about to implode, just knocked one in the water on 12.
Fisher, Cabrera are in the clubhouse at -3. Watney, Jimenez and Marksaeng are in at -2.
Shingo Katayama is at -5 through 15.
Sergio Garcia has gone to a belly putter. I predict he’s toast if he already went to a belly. He will implode.
In the meltdown department, Michael Campbell is in the house with an 80.

    Some terrific 1st Rd scores…Hats off to Larry Mize…Phil’s in..tied for 20th..oops..30th..wait..50th..Neck and neck with Louis Oosthulzen..Oostie is working on his putting as we speak and that log jam at 50th could change quickly tomorrow.
    I like Weir, Harrington and Furyk all keeping it within reach..shaping up very nicely while Woods eats up the back nine.

    Hopefully they keep scoring and shut those people up
