Masters week has just begun, so let’s check out what’s going on on the green.
For the first time, Tiger is not the book-keepers favourite. That honour goes to Phil Mickelson, the defending champion. The odds for Mickelson are an amazing 8 to 1, with Woods at 10 to 1. At least it’s not at 25 to 1, eh Tiger?
Want to experience the Master’s tournament first-hand? You just might have a chance! Starting yesterday, a viewer could register for the lottery to buy practice-round tickets for the 2012 Masters. However, for the first time in 47 years, daily tickets will be offered to the public through the masters.com website. However, tickets are limited. Still, what a wonderful opportunity for us golfing fans!
Augusta National had a 45 minute delay for tee-time this morning after workers needed time to clean debris from overnight storms before The Masters practice round. The storms toppled trees and some power lines across town, though there was no word on any damage to the actual green.
In other news, Lee Westwood survived his second emergency landing the other day (his first occurred in Switzerland en rout to Augusta from the Shell Houston Open. A cockpit fire forced his private jet to make an emergency landing just 30 seconds after take-off. Even with all his luck on the green in the past year, I wouldn’t want to be him in a plane!
