Kenny Perry Charges (The Masters)

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed or follow us on Facebook. Thanks for visiting!

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.

And Your Leader is… Chad Campbell? (The Masters)

Chad Campbell

For those of you expecting a familiar name like Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson sitting atop The Masters leaderboard … SURPRISE!!! Introducing Chad Campbell, who opened yesterday’s round with five straight birdies, on his way to an opening score of 65 and the overall lead going into Day 2. Currently, Campbell is on the course and his start is similar to yesterday blistering front nine. Through five holes, Campbell is two-under, taking him to nine-under for the tournament — which, in turn, gives him a three stroke lead over Jim Furyk, who is in second place.

A quick glance at Campbell’s Wikipedia page reveals he has four tournament wins since turning pro in 1996; although, there are no majors on said list. Nevertheless, Campbell has made a nice living from golf — something his $16.5 million career earnings total indicates quite nicely. Oh, and he has a hot wife as well (see, we cover the important stuff here):

Amy Lepard

She has a fledgling music career if you are interested.

As for Campbell, while he doesn’t have any major titles, he has finished in the top five in both the US Open and The Masters. However, if he continues his torrid play, the “no majors” moniker might very well die on Sunday.
