Whew, I hope you all had a chance to watch the Masters tournament today!
It was the “DOG FIGHT” we all had predicted.As always the cream did rise to the top..
Charley Hoffman held on to his lead but lost 3 strokes to par with a 75 today.
Charley said he didn’t mind as long as he was still in the lead it was all good!
Sergio Garcia surged into a tie at the top with a beautiful -3 under par 69.
The four guys that are leading are fantastic golfers but the guy with the lowest score today………Rickie Fowler with his lowest Masters round ever -5 under par 67.
Thomas Pieters who showed us all he could play at the Ryder Cup is the last guy at -4 under par.
Those are 4 strong competitors and Saturday, “moving day”, is going to prove to be very entertaining.
Rickie really got me going by starting off with a par and then an eagle on 2, when he blasted from the trap right into the hole.
The post round interview with Rickie was fun. He was excited to see the ball go in the hole because he couldn’t see it from the trap.
He proceeded to birdie #3, then reeled off 4 straight pars . Number 8 was a nice birdie and a par on #9 =32 on the front.
Rick parred the first 3 holes on the back nine. Birdie on 13, par on 14, then the wheels fell off with a bogey on #15.
Finishing par-par=35 on the back side.
The winds were still blowing hard today and it was not warm by any means!
Saturday and Sunday are supposed to be calm and warmer.
In the #5 spot all alone is Will McGirt. Quite a beginning for this South Carolina boy in his first Masters start.
I can’t believe that this is Sergio’s 18th Masters. WOW!! I am old.
Plus Sergio is getting married in July. I thought he has calmed down quite a bit.
Got to see Rory’s beautiful fiancé and I hear they are to be wed in 2 weeks. She gave him a kiss for luck and he is in a t13 at +1 over par.
All places are exciting this Masters week but check out the 3 way tie for 6th…..Ryan Moore, Jon Rahm, & Fred Couples.
They are all -1 under par so far. Can you imagine Fred Couples winning at age 57. That would screw up Jack’s win at age 46.
There are two LONG rounds left so we will all get to see who wears the green jacket come Sunday.
