Somewhere in Augusta a band is playing "Hail to the Chief"
Like you didn't think the upcoming words were going to be typed - Tiger Woods is making a run.
He's 2-under through nine, and has yet to make a bogey in hurricane-like winds (ok, maybe a little extreme, but trees are blowing and golf balls are a-moving).
If the introduction to CBS's broadcast of the Masters is any indication, I'd say the over/under on Brett Wetterich and Tim Clark sightings if they keep making bogeys has to be around 1.5 (this just in, I'm pretty sure Wetterich just shanked his third shot on 3 and neither of the announcers called him out on it).
Get ready for a lot of grey Swoosh sweater watching the rest of they day if El Tigre continues to hit it solid.
One last note - why is Stuart Appleby wearing an Augusta sweater? He obviously has sponsors, so what you're saying is that Bridestone (or whatever Australian clothing company pays him) forgot to send him a sweater? Why doesn't Jim Nantz call him out on this? Did he have to buy that in the pro shop or do you think Augusta gave it to him?
