masters augusta nationalThis 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.

Jonathan Byrd is at +1 after 12.  Just laid up on #13.  His putting peed seems to be a little strong.

For those who can hit the green on #12, it is soft and receptive.

Tiger Woods hit the fairway on #1 with a 3-wood and made par.  Even par going into #2.

Players not faring well early include Ben Crenshaw at +5 after 10, Mark O’Meara at +3 after 9.
