Tiger Woods Has That Same Confused Look
I mentioned this a couple of times before the week started, but the last few years, Augusta National has bothered Tiger Woods.
It is the only time I can remember that Tiger was confused. He seemed dumbfounded by the greens. The wind is really confusing him on approach shots. He isn't making those signature putts we are used to him making. The 17th yesterday was as far from Tiger as I've ever seen.
If Tiger can get it honed it, everything will be fine. Right now, he is 2-under through 10 holes and just seven shots back of Chad Campbell, it just doesn't seem like Tiger is totally comfortable out on the golf course like he usually is.
--Watching the early Masters Extra coverage of Amen Corner and 15 and 16, one of the announcers said "Kenny Perry is the best player in the world to not have won a major." I love Kenny, but really? Sergio Garcia? Adam Scott? Colin Montgomerie, Justin Rose, Anthony Kim, Hunter Mahan?
--Kenny Perry has birdied the 12th both times this week.
--I set the over/under on balls in the water at 12 at 22.5 as a joke. I don't think that is too far off right now.
--Hunter Mahan has made 11 birdies this week and just two bogeys. The problem is, he has two double-bogeys and a triple. Ouch.
