From Golf Channel:

AUGUSTA, Ga. – Phil Mickelson was asked Tuesday at Augusta National if he could guess what Tiger Woods’ victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational might do for Woods' confidence heading into the Masters.

The answer was simple.

“I think it’s huge for him, and I think he’s going to have a great week, because he’s obviously been playing well and to have won heading in I think gives him a lot of confidence,” Mickelson said.

“Sucks for us.”

After a good drive Woods smokes a three-wood to within 10 feet.

Laird: It was definitely the most electric crowd I’ve ever seen. When [Woods] holed the eagle putt on 8, it was probably the loudest I’ve heard a crowd. The explosion of noise was unbelievable.

Ogilvy: You know what was really cool? Across the course you could hear when they posted the eagle on the leader boards. Down by 11, over at 13, then 15. One roar after another. Not for a golf shot but for the changing of the leaderboard.

McIlroy is all too aware of the cheers, and their meaning.

I'm hoping to see Tiger win it. Golf just isn't fun when he's not winning..

Although his win a couple weeks back would make winning the masters slightly less dramatic.. I wanted to see his first win at a major.

“I will spend as many as 10 hours this week on the course on my own,” he said. “We’re allowed to go out without our players during the Practice Round days, and the golfers know why we’re out there and appreciate the work we are doing. So they don’t mind. I’ll map out the green contours using an electronic leveler that gives me an accurate measurement of the slope. I’ll also calculate run-outs and carries and figure out what I call ‘out spots,’ which are places around the green where my player can miss without getting into a whole lot of trouble. The idea is to build your yardage book, with information you gather on your own and also what you pick up during actual practice rounds with your player and even the Tournament itself.”

Need Kyle Stanley to win this wire to wire showing off as much Zag gear as possible!

I watched Kyle Stanley on # 8 & 9 on Tuesday. He shaved off his beard. He looks about 16. He was with Phil, Mike Weir, and Brendan Steele.

Donald apparently has a scorecard issue; he may get DQ'd. . .

Tiger bogeyed the last two holes to shoot Even par. . .Lefty is struggling.

04-05-2012, 01:51 PM
Kyle Stanley at 3 over, right? I'd like to see him at Even after tomorrow. Make the cut.

Stanley is +5 through 10 holes. He all Bill Haas will be one of the featured groupings on the DIRECTV Masters Mosaic, Channel 703. . .

Fred Couples is -5 and tied for the lead !!

Albatross for Oosthuizen.

Triple bogey 6 for Phil on 4.

Bubba Watson wins on 2nd hole in sudden death.

04-08-2012, 03:51 PM
That second shot by Bubba was a masterpiece. If it had another hundred yards to it, the ball would've come back around and hit him. *Bend it like Bubba*

04-08-2012, 04:38 PM
When Bubba put on his green jacket outside, some one in the back held up a Coug flag or towel. Pretty funny.

Here you go! Looks like a T-shirt, but still made the cut, just the same!

The Wazzu flag is the new Rainbow Afro guy with the "John 3:16" sign years ago.

Rollen Stewart, nutjob, now serving life in prison Where is he now ? (http://articles.latimes.com/2008/may/19/sports/sp-crowe19)

Serving three life sentences for hostage-taking, he has been imprisoned since 1992. The punishment was the result of a bizarre incident in which an armed Stewart locked himself in a hotel room near Los Angeles International Airport and kicked off an 8 1/2 -hour standoff with police, demanding a three-hour, televised news conference to air his views. Earlier, he had driven two day laborers to the hotel, both of whom escaped, and encountered a frightened housekeeper who locked herself in a bathroom.

Currently serving time at Mule Creek State Prison, about an hour southeast of Sacramento, he has been denied parole three times in the last six years, most recently in March, and does not believe he will ever be set free.

"Jesus will come back before I get out," Stewart tells a visitor from Los Angeles, his startlingly blue eyes revealing little emotion. "To justify their own unbelief, they use me as a scapegoat so they can sleep at night.
