Kenny Perry Charges (The Masters)
Kentucky boy Kenny “Powers” Perry, powered by a five-under 67, is now tied with Chad Campbell atop the Masters leaderboard. Campbell maintained the lead/tie he forged yesterday by shooting a two-under 70. Perry, who in the above video, does a skip-the-ball-trick similar to Vijay Singh’s, birdied holes 1, 2, 12, 15, and 18, while shooting even par on the other 13 holes. Both Campbell and Perry lead the rest of the field by at least three strokes. Apparently, Augusta National is inviting players with no PGA Majors on their resumes into the inner circle. Will either of these two be able to accept? Would a hole in space-time open up if a Kentucky boy won one of Georgia’s go-to events?
As for the other notables, Tiger struggled with birdies followed by bogeys today. As a result, Woods shot a 72, gaining absolutely no ground on the leaders. Jim Furyk, Angel Cabrera, and Todd Hamilton all sit in “second” place at six-under. Cabrera, however, is two-under through 10 and is in a position to gain even more ground on the in-the-clubhouse leaders.
This is setting up for a great weekend of who wants it more. Granted, you can’t count Tiger out yet, but he’s going to have to make a mighty charge on Saturday and Sunday … Or hope the pack falls back to him. Unfortunately, the way Perry and Campbell have been shooting, that might be out of the question.
