Masters Update, Mid-Afternoon
Here’s what I’m seeing at Augusta so far on day one of the 2012 Masters.
Or should I say, what I’m not seeing.
No birdies by anyone on 11, 16, and 18 as of press time.
Tiger just wasted a birdie opportunity on 15, a hole he would typically be in on two but had to chip onto the green for his third shot during today’s round.
Stenson continues his lead at −5, having given up a stroke at 16, with Jason Dufner coming on strong at 3 under through 8 and 10 holes to play.
Lee Westwood is also coming on strong, with three consecutive birdies at 5, 6 and 7. Keep an eye on Lee — he’s hungry for it.
Keegan Bradley is also playing consistently, 2 under through 16, and tied by both Woods and Woods’ playing partner Miguel Angel Jimenez.
Save for Stenson’s additional two strokes on the field, it’s wide open on day 1!
