A Great Day at the Masters

What a day at the Masters! It is going to be exciting. Chad Campbell looked unbeatable, breaking Ken Venturi's record for the best start at the Masters with 5 straight bridies! I think the realization that he could set a new course record... AT AUGUSTA NATIONAL... caused his bogey, bogey finish. And what about the guts of Hunter Mahan? The double at #11 would have ended any number of rounds but he bounced back nicely.

Personally, my favorite storyline is Larry Mize. Imagine, shooting -5 in the first round of the Masters at age 50!

It was no thrill for Phil (Mickelson) with a disappointing +1 but for teenager Rory Mcllroy an even par finish had to be cool. Also Kenny Perry flew under the radar all day long and shot a boring (that's as true as it gets) 68. All canada is toasting Mike Weir for the day he had. AND, Tiger Woods proved to be human... lipping out a short birdie putt on #17 and then air-mailing the green from short yardage on 18 to make bogey and finish 2-under.

Anything can happen this week so hang on and enjoy the ride!
