AUGUSTA, Ga. -- All day during the Golfcast, I kept hearing about how surprised everyone was at the great drama on the course even without Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods. I have to admit, I was a little worried at first, but that went right out the window with "The World's Most Interesting Man" named Miguel Angel Jimenez shooting 66.
Imagine what Sunday will bring! In the meantime, let's look back at what grades were earned on Moving Day at the Masters.
Adam Scott World Ranking: No. 2 | Scores: 69-72-76
Four over par after five holes? Wonder what championship gumption tastes like when it comes back up from the belly? And the next person that says that anchored long putter is cheating, I'm gonna show them Adam's 35 putts from Saturday and then knock their teeth out. So much for a repeat champion, although a 67 would go a long way if Mr. Scott could mustard one up.
Henrik Stenson World Ranking: No. 3 | Scores: 73-72-74
One birdie from the third-ranked player in the world on a day that had a 66 and 67 is unacceptable. The only reason I'm not failing him is because Stenson hit more greens (13) then he has all week. While I am sympathetic to how hard these greens were, I have no sympathy when you rank this high in the world. Maybe you and Adam Scott can switch putters for the day just for giggles? Couldn't hurt.
Jason Day World Ranking: No. 4 | Scores: 75-73-70
You found a way to your first under-par round of the Masters and you did it with the putter. Twenty eight putts while only hitting 11 greens in regulation is some feat. The question I ask you now is this: Knowing you can't win on Sunday, are you motivated enough to get a top 10? That will take a minimum of 70 again, and it will be harder than the 2-under round you shot Saturday.
