I do remember nearly getting a hole in one at 16, the ball ending up a foot from the hole, but other than that, nothing of note, but no balls in the water either, so I had that on Sergio Garcia anyway.
"On this year's Masters tickets, there's actually a drawing at the clubhouse and he convinced me that Bobby Jones had planted a really rare tree off to the side of the clubhouse", she said, "We got there and he told me that we were going to take a photo". I was quite embarrassed but I said the last thing that's going to happen is me getting carried out of here on a stretcher celebrating a hole-in-one. "But the way I played I hit some good shots and gave myself putts for birdies. So, it's just unfortunate, but it is what it is".
Sergio Garcia's 15th hole was an adventure, and not of the, "And then we found the buried treasure!" variety.
"I feel like the game's in good form". "I don't know why the ball just wouldn't stop".
Garcia hit five consecutive balls into the water on the par-5 15th hole to finish with 13 on the hole during Thursday's first round of the Masters.
The 13 - that's an octuple bogey, for those wondering - matched Tom Weiskopf and Tommy Nakajima for the worst score on a single hole.
If anyone ever asks what my favorite assignment has been in my 35-plus years as a sportswriter, I always say the Little League World Series in 2004 when Michael Conforto was the only 11 year old on a Redmond North team that competed in Williamsport, Penn.
Unfortunately for Garcia, for all the wrong reasons. Tee times are starting later over the weekend because the field has been cut down after the first two rounds.
"I thought it was flawless". A 6-footer downhill is so much more hard than a 15- or 20-footer uphill. And if it probably carries a foot less, it probably doesn't go off the green and probably stays on the fringe.
"I could have easily let the round slip away from me, but I got it back and I'm right back in this tournament", Woods said. But then again, too few to mention.
McIlroy, who with a win this week would be only the sixth player to win each of golf's four majors, shot a one-under par 71 on a tough scoring day at windy Augusta National that brought him to four under for the tournament.
Last year's champion Garcia is out of the race for sure (unless he shoots a record breaking 62 on the Friday and then repeats that on the weekend); Justin Rose who had lost to him in last year's playoff, birdied the 18th to reach level par and to indicate his clear intent of rectifying last year's Green Jacket being virtually ripped off his shoulders.
Only six-time Masters champion Jack Nicklaus (37) made more cuts at Augusta National. And with a tough, back-right, hole location, he goes deep, running through the green.
"Not really", Garcia said. I didn't finish the way I wanted to, but it was great out there, the atmosphere and everything, it was fantastic. I still think he's far and away the most likely victor and I'm not tempted by any of the other short-priced contenders.
But Garcia lipped out a birdie putt at 13, his first competitive try at the hole named for his baby daughter. He made bogey from the bunker on No.4.
