    The funny thing is that it was his 12th ace, not his first.

    It's really amazing. I didn't think he'd be able to play. I'm not sure if ankle dislocations just aren't that serious or if he's had them before so it's not unusual for him, but the way he popped it back in so quickly is definitely not how I would have reacted, lol. Good for him.

    Sergio putting 5 in the drink yesterday was funny.

    Tiger can still contend after finishing strong to get to +1 but he can't afford to mess around anymore.

    Spieth looked great and may run away with it but he is also capable of choking. Obviously too early to anoint him but given his success at Augusta previously, it's scary to see him post -6 on day 1.

    Spieth still has to play the 12th hole 3 more times. . .

    It's shaping up to be a great Masters, that's for sure. And yeah, you're right Fro, Tiger can't mess around any longer. I'd love to see him charge up the leaderboard today.

    I wonder what another Masters victory would do for Speith's Under Armor contract? I seem to recall hearing his contract is incentive-based, as most golf contracts are, and that each Major would give him a sizable increase.

    Between the Par 3 competition and the first round yesterday, I'm jonesing to play some golf...and today it's snowing out.

    not watching just checking scores and Spieth is +3 through 4 holes, yikes! I'm not anti Spieth but this is good because it opens up the field. Now about 7 guys tied for the lead at -3.

    seems that the course is playing tough today based on the scores I'm seeing

    Spieth blasted his first shot about 6 rows deep into the crowd and pine straw.

    I haven't gotten to watch much and I'm not bothered by how tough the course is playing, but this call for Mickelson to withdraw is hysterical. Classic golf snootery

    http://www.espn.com/golf/story/_/id/...innecock-hills

    I think it was a funny move by Phil

    I wasn't bothered by Phil at all. I liked him expressing his frustration with the setup and I wonder how many guys wanted to do the same thing. Phil's been my favorite golfer since I was a kid though, so I'd probably get a kick out of him doing anything.

    I sort of like the idea of the course fighting back and being really difficult, but this felt unfair and cruel at times. And the difficulty seemed to vary so much based on the time of day and conditions. The competitive balance was thrown off more than I'd like with so much on the line, but I suppose that's just part of the game.

    Damn, not a single post since the US Open..... Guess i'll be the resident golf guy...


    Going into the weekend, I know there is a lot of ppl that want Tiger to make a charge, (ppl as in those who grew up watching Tiger destroy courses) but there is a good crop of guys up on the leaderboard and it is time to accept the fact that Tiger is now just that. One of the guys. And that's fine.

    As for the current leaderboards, i'm pulling for Kisner. Guy spent his first few years on the Tour fighting to stay on, then fighting to get back on when he lost his card. Plus, I listen to him whenever he is on the ForePlay podcast, and he just seems like that dude that wants to roll out of board, throw on some shorts and a shirt, grab a beer and hit the tee. Common man golfer. I dig that. So I say GoKizGo

    Tiger is making a charge! Seems that the course is very playable today, lots of birdies and eagles dropping.

    US runs out to a 3-1 lead in the am and gives it all back and more in the afternoon. Looks like it will be 5-3 for the Euros after day 1.

    Masters time is upon us. Who do you guys like this year? For you gamblers, who are you putting money on?

    I'm doing some Draft Kings lineups and I went heavy on DJ, Bubba, Koepka, and Rickie Fowler. Personally I'm rooting for Fowler and I hope Tiger has a good showing.

    Most of my money is on Bryson DeChambeau. The guy is just so interesting, unlike many front line stars.

    Have some money wasted on Justin Harding, Keith Mitchell, Lucas Bjerregard and Matt Wallace.

    Yawn. That response was about as dull as your average Wisconsin sports fan.

    I don't like Tiger as a person, he possesses all the human traits I don't like, but as a golf fanatic, it's pretty amazing he has won any tournament again, especially the biggest major!

    Alright you two think that's quite enough.

    Incredible from Tiger today. I had hoped, but I did not anticipate he actually would win a major again before the end of last year. Even with the way he played towards the end of last year I still only had a small belief.

    No one can draw like Tiger. I can't think of any one who can change the ratings of their sport quite like him. It will be interesting to see what the ratings end up being like.

    I also like how the last time Tiger won the Masters was also the last time LeBron missed the playoffs.

    My kids are 13 and 11. They asked me today why I was so into it and I realized neither of them were alive the last time he won the Masters.

    I'm not into golf and haven't played since I was 18 but I even tuned in yesterday to watch and man am I glad that I did.

    And Big Al, you're right that commercial just says it perfectly.

    The things that he has been caught for are things that just about most of us have either done or come damn close to doing, so I never thought negatively of Tiger and really only ever felt bad for him especially through the scrutiny and injuries. He didn't deserve most of it. I mean hell, we root for people in sports all the time who have done much worse things.

    I'd agree with this. In the grand scheme of things, Tiger didn't do anything terrible. I don't care about his family life because it's none of my business. As long as everybody is a consenting adult, not my business to get worked up over whether or not the dude is stepping out on his wife or girlfriend. The DUI is by far the worst thing he did because he put other people's lives at risk but, like you said, we root for people in sports who have done worse.

    Koepka is having a pretty good first round at the Championship. Tiger had a couple double bogey's early but seems like he's turning it around.
