There’s a golf tournament of note that’s underway in Georgia; one you may have heard of. Yes, I’m talking about The Masters. The hunt for the Green Jacket is already underway, although, they experienced a 40-minute fog delay; moving the start times of the rest of the field back. Currently, there are about 20 golfers on the course with Heath Slocum sitting atop the leader board at 2-under.
The center of this tournament’s attention, one Eldrick Woods, is scheduled to tee off at 10:45 EST and he’ll be joined by Angel Cabrera and Stuart Appleby. Of course, the main storyline for this year’s Masters is can Tiger Woods complete the first leg of the Majors Grand Slam, something he seems bound and determined to accomplish.
While doing so is entirely unheard of; I, for one, am not willing to bet against Woods.
If you’d like to keep up with the leaderboard, you can do so over at the PGA’s site (amongst a million other places). But if you’d like some first-class live blogging to go along with your Masters enjoyment, head on over to Sooze’s newest creation, In The Weeds.
The fine folks over there (I’m included) will be providing live updates for your reading pleasure so make sure you stop by. Unfortunately, I won’t be doing the live thing, but I will be commenting so make sure you drop in see what’s going on. Good times. We promise.
Just to get you in the mood, here’s the video of Tiger’s incredible chip from the 16th hole in 2005 — followed by the most awkward high-five in the history of sports.
